There are a few seriously good songs on that disc. Wasnt overly keen on a couple of the jazzier tracks, but it is good.

 

I love it when he mixes it up, so the Steely Dan/Jazz fusion stuff is great in my book - he rips it doing that style. I''m having a sneaky suspicion that this is better than 'Everchanging Times' and that was an awesome album.

Mate, I haven't been gone that much, have I? Anyway, it's good to be back, mate and thanks for the thread about me. I didn't have time to read the above posts as I assume it's just the usual "I want to touch Geoff's nuts and cuddle them" and "He's so handsome my heart breaks everytime he enters the room" kind of talk. So I thank you.

This really is one fantastic album. It covers just about everything I like in Rock music and the standard of songs, along with Luke's playing and the assembled musos is just phenomenal. Me thinks the album of the year has just arrived.

I'm loving this album, it will surely be in my top 10 this year. The packaging and booklet of this digi pack is one of the best I've seen. It's a really sturdy digi pack with lyrics, photos and a track by track rundown by Lukather. The don't call it the "Limited Edition Deluxe Version" for no reason. If only all bands could put this much effort into the packaging side of things...

I try to be unbiased when listening to Luke's stuff, because as you probably know, he is my favourite musician on the planet, and in my opinion, THE best guitar player that has ever walked this planet. I always have VERY high expectations when he releases stuff, and after his excellent last album 'Ever Changing Times', this was no different. I can honestly say that from the very first spin , I knew this was something very special and now a couple of months down the line, I think it is some of his best work ever, especially in the songwriting. Obviously going through difficult times brings out the best in you and this is an album he can be justifiably very proud of. It's not necessarily his 'flashiest' playing wise, but the care and attention that has gone into everything from the quality of the songs, down to the band he has assembled, production, and as you say, the finished physical product, is just superb. Record companies, musicians etc, take note of how it should be done. 'All's Well..' just about covers it all for me musically, from the Toto'ish stuff ('Darkness In My World' - one of the best songs I have heard this year without doubt) & 'Can't Look Back' to the Jazz fusion and bluesy tracks 'Tumescent' & 'Flash In The Pan', the Steely Dan'ish tracks ('On My Way Home') and top quality ballads ('Don't Say It's Over')- it's all here and makes an album that never gets boring or predictable like quite a few I have heard this year. Thankfully it is also getting the very positive reviews it deserves from the press and fans alike. Many people will probably steer clear of it,thinking it's a Muso or guitarist album, rather than a quality melodic rock record, covering varied styles - more fool them for not taking a punt and trying it out. I can't say how blown away I am with this disc really and my album of the year by a million miles.

Just spun a few of those tunes on Youtube to see what the story was here. Some mega long intros which bring to mind Slamer's 'Nowhere Land' CD. Being a pop rabbit I couldn't find a decent hook on 'Darkness in my world', but I didn't mind 'Can't look back' or 'Don't say it's over.' Both of them are quite nice. I can't see me really seeking this CD out desperately, but I'll keep an eye out for an affordable copy as it does remind me of Slamer's work, which is never a bad thing. It also really sounds like someone else too; more likely someone else really sounds like him... just can't think who it is. But yeah, sounds cool for a nice mellow listen. Love that brief but nice solo in 'Don't say it's over'...

Like me you'll probably hate the jazzy stuff, but I can understand some raving about this stuff as it is well played.

 

There are about 3 or 4 really nice songs on here. Steve's not the strongest vocalist in the whole world but it does suit this stuff.

Yeah, death by anal rape appeals to me more than jazz, but I reckon there'd be a few nice tunes on the disc. I actually quite like the vocals on the songs I heard. :)

Remember he is a guitarist first and foremost, not a vocalist, but he sings aswell as some so called 'lead vocalists' on this disc imo. Hence why he took over quite a lot of lead vocals in Toto, as Kikmballs voice is almost shot. Not an easy job.

 

Re. the 'Jazzy' stuff - only a couple of bits that have a Jazz Fusion feel, like 'Tumescent' and for the Westcoast buffs 'Flash In The Pan' and a Steely Dan type track 'On my Way', so absolutely no 'Jazz' on here at all.

Neal Schon and Satriani could smoke Luke in their sleep....especially Neal. When we are talking about someone's favorite, it is very hard to be objective.

 

BTW, neither Neal, nor Joe is my favorite.... :bananamac:

Fortunately, this thread is about how good the new Luke album is, not a pissing contest whether he is better or worse than blah de blah. In some peoples opinions CC Deville would be better, but that is a matter of opinion.

 

 

BTW...I am a major Schon and Satriani fan ;)

    • I don't. Hate it with a passion. Even that is so 1986. Retire Tesla please. You are an embarrassment now.

Rattle The Cage  4:42 Band members: David Shaw - lead vocals, bass George Giannoulis - lead guitar, vocals Alex Rude - guitar, vocals Erik Fehrenbach - drums, vocals Produced by Streetlight Circus Recorded at Snake Mountain Studios - Monroe, New York Mixed and Mastered by Bob St. John for PDQ Productions Bio: Born in New York City, raised on rock ‘n’ roll, Streetlight Circus has become a fist-raising juggernaut.  With two independently-released full-length albums and one EP, consistent touring in the United States and overseas, invites to major American rock festivals, and bills shared with countless venerated artists, Streetlight Circus has become a name synonymous with the new wave of hard rock. The band's new album, Super Fine Sugar, represents a huge leap forward for the hard-hitting quartet. Streetlight Circus showcases the urgent songwriting and soaring vocals of David Shaw, the fiery and passionate guitar work of George Giannoulis, the thunderous drumming of Erik Fehrenbach, and the smooth rhythm guitar work of Alex Rude. What’s more, Streetlight Circus has captured the attention of industry stalwarts who have eagerly participated in the creation of the new album. The songs were mixed and mastered by Grammy-winning producer and engineer Bob St. John. Guest appearances are made by Berton Averre (The Knack), Tony Harnell (TNT), Jon Auer and Ken Stringfellow (The Posies), Brian Forsythe (Kix), and Jesper and Jacob Binzer (D-A-D). Streetlight Circus has been invited to rock thousands at festivals such as Rock Fest (Wisconsin), Rocklahoma (Oklahoma), Rock N’ Derby (New York), Wolf Fest (Colorado), and the M3 Rock Festival (Maryland) among many others. The band has managed to comfortably fit on bills featuring bands as heavy as Avatar, Anthrax, and Megadeth and as accessible as The Doobie Brothers, Buckcherry, and Night Ranger. In 2018, Streetlight Circus embarked on a successful headlining tour of the United Kingdom taking them from Wales to Scotland and many British points in between. Supercharged and ready to roll with Super Fine Sugar, Streetlight Circus is prepared to rock stages around the globe. Don’t miss your chance to rock under the band’s big top. It’s a show you won’t want to miss. Watch the video for "Dirty Earth" featuring Tony Harnell at the link below  https://youtu.be/08_IuFTqwTM  
    • warrant?? CP and DED destroy the debut imo. 🤷
    • Eric Clapton-Chronicles Best Of John Fogerty-Centerfield Genesis-...And Then There Were Three... Jimi Hendrix-Electric Ladyland Billy Joel-The Stranger L.A. Guns-S/T Bruno Mars-Unorthodox Jukebox Motley Crue-The Dirt Soundtrack Simple Minds-Glittering Prize Patty Smyth-S/T U2-The Joshua Tree    
    • Such was commonplace around here years ago. 
    • That's an oxymoron-even KarpetRyd knows that !  
    • Checked this out....not too bad but not sure how memorable it'll be. There's a few tunes I thought sounded pretty good after my first listen and do think Ronnie sounds excellent on the album  Songs like Scream and Shot in the Dark both stood out to me a bit.  I thought Last Man Alive sounded decent too. Much of the rest kind of feels like it falls in line with the first 2 singles that were released.  It's kind of heavy which is cool but just not coming off as being that catchy or memorable initially which was sort of my same problem with the last album.   We'll see what happens with more listens.  Here's a link to the whole album:  
    • WTF is this, two dudes having an intelligent conversation about a band without relying on easy absolutes. I'm impressed.
