This is a great album. There's much to dig into and it's a rewarding listen. Great hooks, good compositions, fiery and mature playing. I prefer the instrumentals to the vocal tracks, but that's just me. Billy's one of the best. I like seeing him shine here, coming out from his usual position of sideman to other great axe-wielders. It's good to get to know him better. Another reviewer said it was too bass heavy?! It is, ahem, a bass album after all! C'mon now, get with it. Thanks, Billy, for the music.
