After a couple times through, I think they have created a better album than the first! Awesome job!
Huge step up from the debut

This is a total return to form for Jake E. Lee. He has been my favorite guitarist since '83 and a massive influence on my playing. I admit to being underwhelmed with the first RDC album.
This album on the other hand.... is very cohesive. The songs are strong. Jake is brilliant. Its a mature album as far as his guitar playing. He really stretches out and uses a ton of colors on this album.
For all of you guitarists who want guitar 'hero' stuff, there are still plenty of moments where he really blazes, but overall this is album is more about solid songs and very precise parts delivered the way only a guy as talented as Jake E. Lee can.
You can tell that a LOT of TLC went into picking different guitars, amps, pedals combos etc. to paint with a much wider spectrum. Great production, great mix. Give this album a listen. It is well worth it.

I agree on vocals not being my best match, but he seems to be settling into a new style although reminiscent of Badlands as far as guitar which I love with Jake. My favorite genre for him. So by comparison he lacks a little, but at times it was tinny with Ray as far as Hakes high riffs and Rays highs. Soto would rock with Jake. Still in all I’m really digging the first two tunes as far as Jakes style. Awesome!!
Solid start to their 2nd release
November 9th can't come soon enough!!!
The opening riff brings me back to Jake's 1st Badlands album...raw, raunchy & full of attitude. Let's just hope the rest is just as strong!!!

Thank you Jake!
I found the new song on YouTube with a great video yesterday...totally killer riff and harmonies. I just love the sound..wish the vocals had more of an edge but Jake totally kills it. This is the kind of music myself and many others crave... I feel I’ve been deprived while sitting around waiting for Eddie Van Halen. To hell with Van Halen, they can stay in hiding. This band is for real. Going to have this on repeat for heavy lifting days!
Bo Bice should be Jake’s singer!
