I listened to the full album today. As we already knew from the songs they released these past few weeks, the production leaves a lot to be desired. It sounds like a demo recording and not just because of the production. Some of the guitar solos sound like they did one take without really having the solo worked out beforehand. Most of the best songs have already been released. There are a few others that could have been on Back to the Rhythm or Rising. A few are just plain weird, including the title track and "Spy vs. Spy."

Oh, and the closing track is sung in a barbershop quartet style. The voices are so processed that it sounds like a choir of robots.

The best part about it is that Jack's sounds relatively good throughout.

I gotta say, I don't think the production sounds bad at all. It sounded great in my car and sounds really good on my PC.

As for the album itself, I love it. Yeah, the last track is awful. I have no idea who green-lighted that one, but aside from that one, it's a great album. Don't expect classic Great White. It's a very different kind of album. I mean, "Don't Let Me Go" has this summer-funky kind of sound you'd expect from 311. "He Saw It Comin'" could easily be a late-era Savatage track . It's a very odd album like that, but oddly it works.

Good tune, yeah. Terry is definitely trying to sound like Jack, though.

IMO, that has more of the classic Great White sound then Jack's version.
