Five and a half stars!

So, this is what SatchJoe is so great at - each track is so different, both from what he’s done afore, and from each other. Joe doesn’t just rock, he entertains! The listener goes from headbangin’, to beboppin’, to swingin’ (still rock, but swingin’!), to swayin’ to a sweet melodic piece, holdin’ high their lighter app! Just a lot of fun. I love rock mixed with just about anything, and SatchJoe rocks to just about everything! One of my favorites, only slightly behind the Alien! Great work, Joe. Above and beyond!
Joe is a fine wine, gets better with age
Listened to Satch since the beginning, he truly is amazing. Carry on Joe!
Not really a power trio
I think this is the best album JS has put out in years. Teaming up with Hughes and Smith gave this project a solid hard hitting rhythm section that sounded GREAT! Problem I have is sythesizers and pedals that give Joe that same sound every time. When you have backup as strong as Hughes and Smith you dont need that echo, reverb or keyboards. I liked it, but dump the keyboards and the effects and just play down dirty and raw. Smokes effects board is at least 6 ft long, cut 4 feet off that.
I love this his new stuff it’s great buy it u won’t be disappointed
Great playing on this album!! Glenn Hughes and Chad Smith are a kickass rhythm section!!!
Just purchased and listened to it 3 times in row. There is not a bad song on it.
I rate all 5 Stars. And I can hear the influence of Glenn Hughes. Just wish he would have sung a song or two with his unique voice. Going to listen to it again.
Classic Joe excellent offering.
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.
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.
I’m a huge Satriani fan but I’m not crazy about this music. It’s mediocre. The younger musicians music is better to me lately.
Plini,Micic to name a few. 🤭
