EDITORS’ NOTES

Satriani can shred like nobody's business, but here he latches onto simplicity as a powerful tool. In an all-star power trio with erstwhile Deep Purple bassist Glenn Hughes and Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith, the guitar hero largely eschews overt complexity in favor of a visceral, sometimes downright primal hard-rocking roar. He seems to channel Jeff Beck on muscular blues-rocker "Looper," unfurls monumental, metal-infused power chords on "Thunder High on the Mountain," and shows his reflective side on "Smooth Soul," unleashing electrifyingly expressive solos all the while.

Blistering Satch

Great first release! Can't wait for the rest of the album. The guitar tone is nastier than past Satriani which gives this a great high Energy feel. Can't wrong with Joe! Always epic. Much love.

Simply incredible. Maybe his best ever

If you haven't already, stop everything you're doing and listen to this album. It's a "double whammy" - incredible, truly unforgettable music and just an unbelievable tone with his guitar, etc. I'm surprised there are so few reviews.

The same Satriani album, but different, groovier

I've been a Satrinai fan for 30 years or so. That said, I didn't expect a dramatic departure from him his formulaic style and sound. Until I heard Glenn Hughes bass. Something sparks in this album and I have to believe it's Glenn's playing and Chad's steady back beat. Joe soars, as he does, but Glenn keeps him from wandering. Listen to "Headrush" for Glenn's unique sound.
