...an excellent early review of the self-titled album

Quote:
California Breed is a fantastic album by a fantastic band. It's new breed, if you will - it doesn't sound like Deep Purple, Black Country Communion, or anything that preceded it. Hughes and Bonham have done some of their best work yet, and the avenue of guitar heroes has a new kid on the block in Andrew Watt.

I will get the Japanese edition as "Solo" is also included. Always thought there would be a Japanese CD with an extra bonus bonus

Sweet Tea: OK track but hoping the rest of the songs/melodies will be stronger.

Reading Conley's review, was Glenn about to join STP last year?

Tony Conleys review of CB is eerily the exact same review he gave to BCC Afterglow.

If I recall, he alluded to both Aerosmith and Led Zep comparisons on both records and stated that both records were the best that Glenn Hughes have performed on.

Strange.

Hmmm...I like what I read...but it kinda annoys me if the reviewers calls the band he reviews his friends and also thanks them...I'd rather have proper journalism and criticism...

Hughes continues to amaze, as his vocals just keep getting better and better with age.

It is kinda obvious single... (but for Finnish radio it should have better chorus - IM- not always so -HO) ...Chemical Rain and Spit You Out are the highlights of the album - for me - at the moment.
