Biography

It's the shot heard round the world! Sammy Hagar's RED VOODOO is the rock 'n' roll party album of the new millennium. And who's gonna argue? Says Sammy of the new album, "It's about fun, it's about partying. It makes me want to go to Cabo and play." That Cabo connection is no accident. Sammy's infamous Cabo San Lucas club Cabo Wabo is the closest ... Read more in Amazon's Sammy Hagar Store

Customer Reviews

This isn't a terrible album, by any means--it's just that it's nothing special.
Daniel Ferguson-Maltzman
Now, Sammy after Van Halen is just like Sammy before Van Halen, with a few more ballads thrown in, so he won't be winning anyone new with these records.
Mike London
I'll be waiting to hear the music from that "project" whatever name they decide to give it when it finally comes out.

Over the years since Sammy released "Cosmic Universal Fashion" I have been meaning to write a review of this rather wretched album, but just never got around to it. If you follow Sammy and you haven't gotten around to getting this disk, well, no worries. This record should be WAY DOWN on your list of albums to buy from the Red Rocker, or for any other rocker for that matter. I've been a Sammy fan for decades, and to say this album is mediocre is an understatement. Like Dylan's "Under the Red Sky", Sammy has adorned "Cosmic Universal Fashion" with some heavy hitting talent, and just like "Under the Red Sky" none of the admittedly remarkable talent are able to rescue this wreck of an album.

The biggest problem with "Cosmic Universal Fashion" is simply how disjointed the album is, as well as its brevity. Honestly, the album sounds like a clearing house for outtakes before Sammy moves on to his next project, or perhaps a contractual filler like "I Never Said Goodbye". Unlike the 1987 "I Never Said Goodbye" album (recorded between Van Halen's "5150" and "OU812" purely as contract filler), this album never moves above even passable.

Since 1996 with the Van Halen firing/quitting (depends on who you ask), Hagar, who Eddie Van Halen said didn't have much of a work ethic, has put out SIX albums since that not so acrimonious split (1997's "Marching to Mars", 1999's "Red Voodoo", 2000's "Ten 13", 2004's "Not 4 Sale", 2006's "Livin' It Up", and 2008 "Cosmic Universal Fashion"). Overall these albums had some strong material, especially "Marching to Mars". Now, Sammy after Van Halen is just like Sammy before Van Halen, with a few more ballads thrown in, so he won't be winning anyone new with these records.

The Red Rocker has been pretty consistent since leaving Van Halen back in 1996, releasing a new album every few years. For the most part they've been pretty good; even if they weren't classics there'd be at least a couple of songs fans of old-school 70s/80s rock would like. The hard-rocking "Ten 13" (2000) and the Jimmy Buffet-esque "Livin' it Up" (2006) were especially good. Unfortunately, however, "Cosmic Universal Fashion" (2008) is somewhat of a dud.

This isn't a terrible album, by any means--it's just that it's nothing special. The songwriting is very pedestrian and the songs, overall, have a "been there" tired feel and a cover version of the Beastie Boy's "Fight for your right to Party" is completely unforgivable (the dude can rock at 61, but covering this song is just...wrong).

The slinky "Vertigo" and a reworked, downbeat, somewhat melancholy live version of "Dreams" are cool, but apart from that, little stands out.

Sammy will rebound, no doubt, but I'd give this one a pass.

I'm a lifelong Sammy fan, I own every album, but I was pretty disappointed this one. I originally wrote this as a one-star review and said I saw nothing redeeming about it, but a few tracks are gradually growing on me.

He has lost something on his voice (understandably at 60), and I don't feel like he has adjusted the music well to fit. His last album, albeit a far departure from his norm, at least explored some new directions. This one, I feel, is just a collection of stuff to put on an album.

If you liked the more country / beach style of "Living It Up" you'll like the tracks "When The Sun Don't Shine" and the "Dreams/Cabo" cover on this one. Those are probably my favorites, because his rock voice just isn't working for me right now - too gutteral and often flat. The acoustic VH cover would be nice, but 2 of the 4 minutes are intro dialog. That's interesting the first listen only.

"Switch on the Light" is pretty fun with Billy Gibbons on it. That one in particular is really growing on me.

The "Fight for Your Right to Party" cover is just gratuitous - the roadie doing guest vocals? May make for a fun moment at a concert (once), but to immortalize it in print is inexplicable to me (not to mention a poor choice of a cover to begin with - the Wabos have a lot more musical talent to showcase than a 1 riff rap song).

"24365" is an attempt at funk, but when you think of "Would You Do It For Free" with Bootsy Collins (on "Marching to Mars") - that's the standard and this doesn't come close. This one does feature Bootsy, but it's just forced. I can't stop comparing it to "Would You Do It For Free" which I hold as one of Sammy's best songs ever, both for the music, the message and the history behind it.

I've been a Sammy Hagar fan for many years now and i have to say that this latest attempt at creating music is just that.. "an attempt". there's nothing here that hints at reinvention whatsoever. Sam prides himself on his tequila and his livin' it up lifestyle. the inclusion of that particular lifestyle in his music has not carried over very well on this disc or his previous one for alot of fans. The title song in and of itself..sucks. "Psycho Vertigo" is okay and "Peeping through a hole" would have been alright if i hadn't already heard Jeff Scott Soto sing that with Soul Sirkus. The Soul Sirkus version blows this one to pieces. the rest of the disc is filler. It just doesn't have the elements of a "rockin'" Sammy Hagar record. Sammy is capable of creating better more listenable hard rock music even at the ripe old of 60! I really hope that the music that he's recorded with Satriani,Mike and Chad is far superior to this latest spud. I'll be waiting to hear the music from that "project" whatever name they decide to give it when it finally comes out.
