Remember the good old days, when jazz-fusion wasn't all about showing off your chops, and was more about creating sweeping moods, and the importance of songwriting? Well, the Bombastic Meatbats certainly remember those days. Having obviously studied the classic early-to-mid '70s recordings of such fusion greats as Return to Forever and Jeff Beck, the group (which includes such members ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic & Bombastic!!! January 27, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Chad Smith's Bombastic Meatbats are all that & more. This CD kills with some heavy hittin' instrumental funk rock. It's the best way I can describe it. I actually got to see this band "live" at NAMM 2010 in Anaheim as part of the Sabian Live concert and they tore the roof off. Buy this disc. Great players all around. A +++

4.0 out of 5 stars Don't Judge A Book... January 15, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Silly band name. Drummer leading a band. Half-hearted cover. Even though I know better, I almost judged a book by the cover..glad I put preconceptions aside and listened to it! If you like Jeff Beck's 'Blow By Blow' or 'There And Back', this will hit you right in your wheelhouse. I fear calling it "Jazz-Fusion" cause I know that's a bad word to lots of folks, but this is a classic addition to the fusion cannon. This will get played to death for years to come in my household!

5.0 out of 5 stars Sweet October 10, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Being a huge fan of Kollman and Cosmosquad lead me to this. Wow. This reminds me a bunch of Jeff Becks older stuff, but with more of a solid groove to it. Too much to say about it, it's solid all the way through with absolutely amazing recording quality. I've got an audiophile system in my vehicle and this disc sounds incredible and spacious. The last track 'Into the Floyd' is really cool, and it's funny to hear Kollman trying to restrain himself. That's not meant as any kind of negative Jeff. You, Gilmour, Govan and May are my favorites EVER!

5.0 out of 5 stars amazing drummer....amazing fusion November 1, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Of course we know that CHAD SMITH is an extraordinary drummer through his work with the CHILLI PEPPERS, but this puts a huge exclamation point on his resume. He takes the drumming to a new level and the band and the music challenges him and pushes all 4 musos to greater hights. Could have been a noodle fest, but the music stands on its own and everyone plays to augment the composition. Amazing skills from JEFF KOLLMAN on guitar. If you like fusion or strumental virtuosity 2nd to none, buy this now......many jaw dropping moments
