This album is a little softer than the first one. That's not a bad thing. Not at all. It's awesome. Songs like Lie #1 and No Slack are already among my favorite songs of all time. I wouldn't compare Joe Bonamassa to Stevie Ray Vaughan anymore though. I think this album has made him evolve beyond that. Not in terms of greatness, but in terms of diversity. He can do anything on the guitar.
The package I bought contained a DVD of a concert during his tour with his previous album called "A New Day Yeasterday". I saw it, and was truly amazed. It features a bass solo by Eric Czar that left me wondering "how did he do that!?!".
Addistionally the DVD contains some background documentary (5 minutes or so) on Joe Bonamassa, featuring some video clips of his child performances, that left me wondering "how did he do that!?!".
Truly an amazing album. Go get it. You won't be sorry. This is a type of music everybody could like.
