Got mine in today's mail...listening now...

First impression is that the album is 'Soul Mover, Pt. III', with snippets of Steely Dan and something like "Will Our Love End" mixed in.

Cheers...Todd

Got mine today, too!

I felt like a little kid when I saw the FUNK in my mail box a couple days before I was really expecting it. Couldn't play it right away, though, cuz I had to be on a conference call for work. That's over now, though, and I've been in the "Kitchen" ever since. Haven't had time to give it a proper listen, but I like what I'm hearing. It seems like both a logical extension of where Glenn's been recently and yet like nothing he's done before. As is the case with most of Glenn's stuff recently, I'm sure it will take a number of listens to figure out exactly how I feel about it. It'll be spinnin' in the old CD player for quite some time.

Holy Funk, Batman !!

Excellent album by Glenn and Co. yet again.

Satellite is a strong favorite at this moment. I'm sure by the second spin, they will all be my favorite, as there isn't a bad track on the album.

There's some "tip of the hat" moments to some past sounds, like STP, right off the bat on Crave, and some that I can't quite grasp at first spin.

I'm sure tomorrow when I pick up our brother in funk, Frank, and he's touring the Trapezium, we'll be cranking it up.

...Two thumbs up on the new album !!

Chip

PS - I think old man, Chris Spencer, up in the wilds of Scotland will love this funky album

Already?!?!

I haven't found any place in Malaysia to sell import CD yet.

Which is faster from Japan or in Malysia. That's the problem...

I will have to wait for the weekend to really listen to it when Susan hasn't got it spirited away in her new car for her trek to work and back. But I was able to listen to it once and

MR. GLENN HUGHES... Awesome brother!!! "Imperfection" totally blew me away, as does "Satellite".... "Love Communion" and "WE Shall Be Free".........just really, really great. Proper review coming soon

I am really really loving this album. I think my favorites so far are Oil and Water, Imperfection, and We Shall Be Free.

Oil and Water really blows me a way. I love the acoustic start and love the electric guitar on the song (that is JJ, right?). I also really LOVE the vocals on this song...very very cool. Also - the drum ending is great....there is just so much going on in this song

Imperfection is such a dreamy, spacy song...I almost feel like a disembodied spirit when I listen to it Really fine song

I am actually not minding my long arse commute to work these last couple of days

Yes, that's JJ on that one, plus he's featured on "Too Late To Save The World". I was just saying to Shirean the other day, although he's on only 2 this time out, he more than makes up for it with these two stellar performances. Less is more, right! The same goes for George Nastos, as soon as I heard his brief parts on "We Go 2 War" and "Never Say Never", you just know it's George adding to the flavour of the funk....his sound is so distinctive, wonderful job. As for Luis, I'm mightily impressed in all departments

I assume it is Luis who plays the solo on We Shall Be Free then? The tone and style in that guitar part has a bit of a Jonny Lang feel to me (not exactly like it, just reminds me of his style).

Local record shop says next shipment due early next week. Good to read about the early deliveries some of you have been getting and the reactions posted. It must sound great through a proper stereo system. Gotta have that Bass

No fav tracks as such yet - take a few spins

Just got it today...it came in yesterday's mail which I didn't check it till today. It only took two days to LA from NEH, lately it's been taking the mail 3 days. Played on the way to the Chino airshow and back and am enjoying it. I don't think any of this will make the gym but I still like it.

Ayup

Long time no see....

Got it on Saturday & on first listen thought it sounded like it might be my fave since Building the Machine. Listening again today, it is!!! (Tho not so keen on 'Too Late to Save the World', so far.)

Being a funk fiend, I've found the last couple slightly disappointing, as I felt that what Glenn & some peeps were calling 'funk' was more what I'd call groovy rock (which I like, but not as much as real FONK!). I've also found the sound a little too harsh in places on the last 2 (esp Soul Mover), but this one's just about right

Nice one Glenn!!! (REALLY looking forward to the Robin gigs now!!!)

Off to Sardinia tomorrow, so will try to pop back in when I get back.

love

TC
