Debut album from all star project featuring Sammy Hagar and Joe Satriani.
In true old-school "supergroup" fashion, Chickenfoot is a hard-rock dream team. Composed of vocalist Sammy Hagar (Montrose, Van Halen), bassist Michael Anthony (Van Halen), drummer Chad Smith (Red Hot Chili Peppers), and guitar virtuoso Joe Satriani, the combo grew out of a few impromptu jams, but the combination was judged strong enough to record an album and go on tour. The resulting disc is a full-throttle, unapologetic rock record, brimming with the same party attitude and sense of fun that made Van Halen so legendary. From the "Boris the Spider"-esque locomotive descending riff and manic screams that drive "Oh Yeah" to the screaming guitar solos and pounding drums of "Get it Up," these songs showcase veteran musicians having the time of their lives, playing the type of music they know and love best. -- Muze

This band is nothing that hasn't been done before in one form or another. As others have noted, they are an updated, in many instances improved versions of many different performers, such as Van Halen, Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix and The Who. Like a cover band for all those, but with original material and more cohesiveness as a band than can ordinarily be expected for a group that has been together for such a short time.
The whole is as good as the sum of its parts and better than classic metal rock that's come out in a long time. Attending the last stop on their current tour, at the Gibson Amphitheater, I realize how exceptionally talented they are both as individuals and as a band. That they even exist at all and were able to tour is a confluence of events that may never happen again. But until the next time they're in concert, or the expected live version videos come out, get this CD.
I never expected this album, I was checking Sammy's website looking for news, probably a new album? After living it up and cosmic universal fashion I felt Sammy owed something big to all his fans.
Hmmm chickenfoot, what is this all about, I just needed to hear Oh Yeah! and after that I could barely wait for the album's release.
Sammy, Mike, Joe, and Chad; did not know what to expect 4 awesome veterans, one killer single, would the album hold on it's own?
After almost two weeks, I can say "Oh Yeah!" it rocks, I've been waiting for an album like this for ages, plain, fun, simple and honest rock.
This guys came together for fun and their love of music and it shows, an enjoyable album, no fuzz, no over-bloated hype or egos...
It's weird like most musicians just attack the album stating Satriani could've been more technical, or stuff like that, but really guys who cares?
Joe fits the album perfectly, he does not steal the show with over though oblique unnecessarily complex guitar solos, he just rocks perfect.
Sammy at 61, man I feel like it is impossible for a man at his age to sound so good fresh and passionate... and as another reviewer rightly said "for all those DLR fans stuck in 1984" you guys just keep listening to that record, no need to bash Sammy. He has kept rocking, still has a voice to rock and keeps on working for fun doing great (Most of the time) simple fun stuff.
Chad and Mickey, those two are a perfect one-two combo, they sound like they've been playing together for ages.
This is the VH album I wanted to hear ever since Balance... I've always wanted Eddie to deliver it... but Sammy beat him to the race... Chickenfoot rocks, like few band have in the last years.
You like rock? buy this album and forget about VH, DLR or anything else... just think chickenfoot and you'll be fine rocking you socks off.
Cheers mates !
