Re: Shapeshifter Released Today
I've only gone through it once... and starting it again, so my impression may change. Like was mentioned before, I have to listen to an album several times when I can really get into it. Usually driving to and from work, or working in the garage at home.
So far I like it! I'm a big Satch fan though, so I'm going to like it anyway, but it really does have some good songs. In the same vein as more recent albums, no really groundbreaking new techniques or anything, but solid rock-n-roll guitar, well written songs, and great recorded sound. Liking the title track, Perfect Dust, 1980 is pretty good, Spirits/Ghosts is a good rocker... and I really like Joe's slower, more open songs like Teardrops and Falling Stars. He is just magical when given space to do his thing!
I'll be buying it ASAP and then I'll get a better listen. Now if I get to drinking beers and listening to an album that's when I really bond with the songs... lol.
