    Default "My Kinda Girl" The Roxy, 5/19/09

    A fairly radio-friendly tune. Due to the angle, the recording microphone managed to pick up more guitar than vocal. To my knowledge, this is the first live clip of this tune thus far available.

    Wow! Great tune. That's about as close to a Hagar-era VH song as they've come so far and it's refreshing that they didn't write a bunch of VH-style tunes. But that song sounds like it could've been an outtake from FUCK or Balance...and I mean that in the best possible way.

    Wow, another killer tune.

    Now that I've heard all the songs, I can say this album has really exceeded all expectations. I think even the most rabid readheads didn't think this record would be that good. Wow.

    This album has a bit of everything; and it really has exceeded my expectations. All of the songs are great and the variety is certainly more present than I would have thought. I cannot wait to get my hands on this.

    Exactly. I couldn't agree more.

    Music tastes are very subjective so I'm not going to berate or insult people that don't like the CF stuff. Some people are actually providing very good critiques of some of the songs. But I don't see how someone can't find something of value among the songs we've heard so far. It's different than the stuff SH has been doing solo-wise, SH's lyrical felonies are at a minimum and his vocals sound strong and powerful, Satch's playing is top notch, you can hear MA's bass in the mix again and he's playing more complex bass lines than he had in years with VH, MA's distinctive background vocals are sounding great on some of the songs, and Chad Smith sounds great playing a different style of music. There are definitely some songs that are stronger than others, but I don't hear any songs I would never listen to on this CD. It has definitely surpassed my expectations, too. It's the type of CD I thought VH could have and should have been releasing the past decade, whether DLR or SH were on vocals.

    Yeah, as a long-time Sammy/Van Halen/Chili Peppers fan, this stuff is exceeding my expectations. It's not perfect and it is retro of that classic rock sound so it's not like they're doing something mind-blowingly new. But I haven't heard good, rockin' songs with a low bottom end that are catchy and fun like this in a long, long time.

    Me likey the Chickenfoot.

    Now bring on the rest of the album in hi-fi so I can crank it!

    I donno about retro. I think modern music has reached a dead end and should backtrack, and find a new direction. Forget about the 2000's, it's a lost decade, the most horrible one since the invention of rock'n'roll as we know it in the 60s. I hope Chickenfoot's record will inspire younger bands, show them how it's done.

    Absolutely. What I find the most alarming about this decade is that the handful of groups that I do enjoy (Muse, White Stripes, Wolfmother, Avenged Sevenfold) are hopelessly derivative of music I liked thirty years ago. When I was younger, there was a fear held by people around my age of one day turning into our parents with regard to musical tastes and a dismissive attitude toward today's artists. As a result, (as a group) we tried to be open minded about current acts, at times to the point of absurdity. Yet in this decade, the artists do not seem to even hold a pretense toward originality. Hell, the shameless Zep rip-off acts of the eighties appear to have been more inspired than the talent-free hacks operating in today's music world. The song does indeed remain the same.

    Even the lyrics suck. I mean we had 2 wars, a recession, huge changes in technology and those new bands decided to sing about a whole bunch of nothing. While society was going through changes as decisive as the 70s, the music didn't reflect that at all.

    I don't wanna become an old man ranting about the good ole' days, so I'm hoping that the 2010s (the Ten's!) are gonna reverse this trend, starting in 6 months! (scary thought!)

    Boy, that Zep ripoff thing really hits home. As bad as it was, it seems like great music now that you look back and compare it with the stuff that's out there now.
