Got the new album and it's better than I thought it would be. Roth sounds old and that's a given as I didn't expect any great vocal performances on the album, and I cringe as to how he might sound live on the upcoming tour.
The big highlight is Eddie. He smokes it. Easily the best Eddie since the 1984 album and probably further back than that. It might be my headphones but the editing of the album seems to have placed a strong emphasis on the noise level of the guitar. Regardless, I would have expected some mellowness in his rhythm but listeners could confuse it for some new young kid shredding on the guitar.
Not necessarily a recommendation to purchase the album but worth the listen for any VH or Eddie fan.
