Okay. Acceptable

I've been waiting for Al's return to the electric guitar and after a few listens I'm not disappointed.

True to the spirit of a great musician and writer

I think this album has a lot of expectations placed on it, as though Al has somehow not been putting out great music all these years. The notion of his “return” to electric guitar is just kind of silly, about as silly as criticizing him for the cover photo.

On to the music: this album is fantastic on many levels. The production itself is crisp and clean - definitely not overpowering. My feeling, as a longtime fan of Al’s, is that this album continues a pattern of excellence for him, especially on the writing front. Thus far, “Babylon” and “Monsters” are highlights for me, as I continue to explore this fantastic recording.

I recommend you put your notion of guitar and technique to the side when you listen to this. While there is a lot of that here, it’s all there to serve the music — which is something Al has progressively been mastering from “Land of the Midnight Sun” till now. This album is awesome.

Al does it again!

Do I have to give it just 5 stars? This album was worth the wait! Every song is fantastic. Acoustic and electric songs are all just amazing. I swear, every album, I think "Al cannot top this one!" and he does. I cannot recommend this album enough.
