    How cool is it that we have new music to listen to and talk about?

    Picked it up on my lunch break, got the Best Buy CD/DVD version. Listened to it on my way back to work. I have to say I really, really like it.

    Probably my three favorite songs on first listen are Big Foot, Dubai Blues and Different Devil.

    Cant wait to listen to it more on the way home and pop in the DVD later this evening.

    My dad picked it up while I was in class. When I got into the car, "Last Temptation" came on and blew me away. The music and melodies are great throughout the entire thing. My favorite song is "Up Next". I love the riff, the lyrics, chorus, solo, everything. "No Change", "Bigfoot", and the first five songs are great rockers. The others are more mature and more developed, musically. Some of Sammy's lyrics sound like they could have easily fit for a follow-up to Balance, but they are great here. I think one of the biggest and best changes in this CD from the last is that Joe seems to have loosened up quite a bit and can just jam away. His playing has that more spontaneous and live vibe to it.

    when I bought mine the guy at best buy was like "this must be a new release" and I said yeah and he siad "I've already sold 15 or so and we've only been open a couple of hours". This is funny cause I had almost the same conversation with a guy at a record store back when I bought OU812 in 1988, the only reason I remember it was cause the guy was shocked that it was selling so many copies and I thought that was funny as hell.

    Love it. The last track is incredible. If you don't like this cd you just don't like Chickenfoot. It was fun to go in the Best Buy and see the 40 somethings there at opening buying their cd's. I guess a Tuesday morning ritual for some.

    At my age, I enjoy the mix of the songs. Perfect disc to throw in a do whatever.

    The clerk asked me what I was looking for, I said Chickenfoot. She replied which one? I said the new one. She laughed and asked with dvd or without. I didn't know there were two versions. The dvd was marked $34 bucks and I thought it was the last tour dvd so I just took the cd. Cool 3D package and liner notes on the actual disk.

    Fuck, I wish I lived near a Best Buy or any kind of music shop for that matter. I live in a bumfuckle little town with a population of 8,000, about 16 hours away from Vancouver. Waiting the next few days for Amazon to deliver the CD is going to suck!
    The song ain't dirty it's really just the way we sing it...

    First off, it is definitely heavier than the first outing, they took that formula took it a few steps further. I also think from a song-to-song comparsion to the first one this is definitely better as well, the songs are better developed and not as sketchy as the first one. No real favorites or no least favorites as of yet, they all sound great. One difference I notice that Joe is bigger in the mix and Chad is maybe not as much this time around. Joe's riffs and solos are all kicking my ass, as is Mike's fat bass and heavenly background voxs are big in the mix. Sammy has said this is best album he has ever done. Time will tell if this will stand the test of the time. I like its chances.

    Been through the album 3 times today and here's my immediate impression on a few:


    Last Temptation is EXACTLY what I was hoping for on this album. Killer in every way and definitely my favorite. I feel like this song is perfect. I wouldn't change a thing about it. The very first listen I was hooked.

    Up Next - LOVE the heavy guitar. Right up there with Last Temptation as my two favorites so far. Great tune.


    Big Foot - The best part of this song is it's placement on the album. Following "Come Closer" and "Three and a Half Letters" is the perfect setup for the monster opening riff. I've dogged on this song pretty bad but I gotta say I cranked the volume huge as I flew down the Mass Pike going 75!



    I may feel differently in a month but for my money I prefer CF 1 top to bottom because I think it showcases Joe better and I think the songs are stronger as a whole. But that's taking nothing away from this one. This is a very good follow-up and SO MUCH better than I was expecting after hearing the samples.

    I love the record. The first one was great, and so is this one. The songs on III indicate that Chickenfoot has evolved as a band. I've categorized the songs based on my own musical tastes.

    League of their own: Different Devil and Come Closer--absolutely fantastic songs.
    Top tier rockers: Last Temptation, Lighten Up, Big Foot
    Solid rockers: Up Next, Alright, Alright
    Good songs: Dubai Blues, Something Gone Wrong
    Can do without: Three and a Half Letters

    I've not listed to No Change enough to categorize it.

    The best song on the CD is Different Devil.
    My top 4, in no particular oder: Last Temptation, Different Devil, Come Closer, and Lighten Up.

    I think this is easily better than the first the first one. I liked the first one, but I've probably listened to it maybe....30 times in 2 years....I'll get 30 listens on this in 2-3 months probably.
