Re: Redemption announced

My CD has been dispatched, so hopefully arrive in a few days.
I get the impression it’s more Blues than Rock.

Lester

He took it all too far,
but boy, could he play guitar.

Re: Redemption announced

I've finally had a chance to listen through a couple times, I'm *really* digging it.  My top 5 so far (and it's hard to pick just 5 favorites):
Self-Inflicted Wounds
Stronger Now In Broken Places
Just 'Cos You Can Don't Mean You Should
King Bee Shakedown
Pick Up The Pieces

I also love Molly O, Evil Mama, Ghost of Macon Jones...

There isn't a bad song on the record, though.  Joe is on an absolute roll.  I've thought every record since (and including) Different Shades of Blue has been his best, and this carries on the trend.  The title track is probably my least favorite song on the record, interestingly, but it's still cool.

Redemption seems to be his most bluesy effort in a long time, but there are a lot of influences present to keep it interesting. His writing continues to be strong.  The record sounds great, too, as expected.  The arrangements, production, and mix are all top-notch.  Definitely a highlight album of the year so far.

As for the Target bonus tracks, I *really* like Black Roses.  That's a killer song.  I also like the 'full band' version of 'Stronger Now In Broken Places'.  It's a really nice complement to the acoustic & sparse album version, just to hear how the same song can be done so differently.

I have to agree. I’ve had two full listens so far and can’t pick a “best”.

Re: Redemption announced

Well to say I love this album would be an understatement so many great songs.  Every time I play it I find something new and really can't pick a favorite.  Truly relate to a few of them on a personal level.  I have the Bonus CD so have been able to hear all of the songs :-).   Just a quick question: "Am I the only one who hears a hint of Dr. John in Evil Mama"?

New Redemption video: "Pick Up The Pieces"

Love this song, video is so cool ( ahrrr... how can one be so astonishingly cool and charismatic?.. you all know who am I talkin about }
Just a thought: can easily imagine Joe landing part in a movie.

Re: Redemption announced

It’s a great CD to listen to, not too keen on “mind over matters” but everything else is great.
I would have liked at least one (long) guitar solo.
There’s no track that really stands out but that’s probably because they are all so good.
I’m more accepting of the horns and backing vocals on this CD, although I personally would like to see a return to a three/four piece band next time round.
As per usual, Caveman has done a great job putting it all together.
Certainly his best work with the current line-up.

Lester...

I do like the way the horns and back up singers are used on This album.
Great album! I am also up for a power trio or 4 piece set up as well.
In a way it doesn’t seem to matter as it’s all been great

Re: Redemption announced

No trio only as one off in my city.  Same with 4 piece.  Well, maybe a quartet doesn’t have to play in my town...but still a one off.

Now to get serious: Pump UP THE Irchestra.  That way the Entertainment Event is highest class, highest value per high valued currency denomination anywhere.  Albums are cheap.  Live Entertainment is not.

Whatever Crossroads taken or forsaken, Rock ON  I know is guaranteed and the cell phones will have some tales spreading like autumn leaves to the cyber four winds.



Rock ON & DO ENJOY The Redemtption & Keep The Faith,
Rocket

Re: Redemption announced

thanks again for the link and thanks to the uploader!
i really enjoy hearing Joe talk about his albums!
I need to listen again but wanted to comment it cracks me up Joe often says he dislikes or something the songs I like a lot. Deep in the Blues Again...lol i do like how he described some as sorbet...and thats OK. Even though he didn't have a lot of compliments for the song and dsays he never intended to play live or even listen to again. Thts ok by me as long as its ok I keep repeating it.
I like all the songs but i do enjoy that one a lot. I am curious though, maybe it was just talking but he said something about how he was surprised people liked it and he mentions 'the record company' lol i thought he WAS the record company??? maybe he meant Mascot?
and I also wonder what the ones on other albums are
anyway good clip, going to listen again. i like that he confirmed some of my initial thoughts, glad i listened to album before this...i'm slowly learning how to pick up on things as compared to just casual music lover before...i forget the details but i noticed a few things on my own then to hear him talk about it, it was cool for me if that makes sense.
