I want to give this a few more spins before I really dive into it, it usually takes me some time to get really into a recording. So far I can say, this is definitely good stuff, I like the upbeat feel to it......I get the impression this is definitely a "fun" band, and that impression didn't get lost in the recording. Joe's playing is a perfect fit for the band, and the man has some nice skills! He moves around a lot, without becoming disconnected....nice work! After one complete spin on the CD, there is only one song that doesn't really grab me....."one more million times", but it does have a cool fretless tone. I can honestly say I liked the rest of it, with my early probable favorite being "happy". Recording and production is very good. Joe has nice tone throughout the entire cd (used the strling eh?). There are a generous 17 tracks on the cd (16 plus a hidden track). While I definitely dig the CD, I get the impression the music is definitely highlighted live. If I ever make it to NYC, or the nerve makes it within an hour or two from here, I will definitely go check them out. So far, I am definitely pleased with it, and it will be getting many more spins. More to come later.
