Received mine today
i have been listening to this release for hours, non-stop, this CD is amazing! really something i have been waiting for, i also agree with those who have said "he is back" this statement couldn\'t be closer to the truth.Real highlights from the album that i highly enjoy and that really stuck out from the rest for me:
Track 1 (amazing track, one of my top favorites, really fun to listen to, lots of happiness and hard rock, great combo\'s!)
Track 2 of course
Track 3, this track is a great one, mellow and beautiful, yet still manages to have that rock feel, really reminds me of A Real Diamond in the Rough.
Track 4 is a great tune, i also agree with others that have said this reminds them a bit of early Sabbath.
Track 5, this is one of the two true highlights, really reminds me of the holidays and Shadows Between The Sky with some powerful solo\'s.
Track 6, again this is a good one, reminds me of a gargantuan army preparing for battle, some great sounds here.
Track 8 is the
[/u] heavy track for me here, really love the killer drop tuned riffs and solos, out of previous albums this one reminds me of Decoding the Tomb of Bansheebot with some Cuckoo Clock of Hell and Elephant Man\'s Alarm Clock thrown in.
Track 9 is the second true highlight from this for me and shall never be forgotten, such a short track that contains an unsurpassed amount of beauty, this really reminds me of Capitan EO\'s Voyage, this would have made the greatest ending to that CD, i would also assume that this track was composed during the CEV recording sessions.
Track 10 is the definition of rock and roll, reminds me extremely of AC/DC and Frankenstein Brothers tracks such as Bought Big Ben.
So to sum it up, these are the tracks that are most important in my mind and are the true great\'s, the others that i have not mentioned (Tracks 7, 11, 12 and 13) while highly enjoyable as-well, they really haven\'t clicked in my mind just yet, i\'m sure i will enjoy these more as i give them some growing time. 10/10 Superb job, Thank you Buckethead!
