Josh Homme of Queens of the Stone Age, Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters, and John Paul Jones of Led Zeppelin came together in 2009 to record this one time album that blends all the musicians together in a series of tracks that show case all their talents. Some tracks have a true rock and roll feel, but others go from weird to weirder. This song sticks to good old rock vibes with some wild guitar solos with Jones providing backing on keys. Add in some great backing vocals by Grohl and you've got a pretty solid tune here.
Can't beat the slide guitar on this number. A simple ascending riff takes this song to great heights before slowing the tempo down mid verse to send you off into space. Dream like vocals that only come from David Gilmour will have you swaying as you go to places that Pink Floyd creates with musical greatness. This is early Floyd at their best.
A great track by a little known band. Piano, violins, and an assortment of weird noises (was that a dog barking in a reverberation hall?) make this creepy yet beautiful song one worth listening to over several times to catch all the suddal details. The lyrics seem to tell the story of a ghost maid trying to find things that belong to her old master. It's eerie in the best kind of way.
Probably the best love song I've heard in months. It makes me feel like I'm back in Paris when the night takes the Iffel Tower at its best. It's got an incredibly seren opener and the lyrics in the bridge make me smile without fail. Great song.
This song will murder you in your sleep if you don't watch out. Recorded live in protest of the Vietnam War, this track shows why Hendrix was a master of the guitar. From the machine gun dead notes to the death tunes of war at it's conclusion, this 13 minute track will have you on the edge of your seat if your listening through headphones on blast with the lights out. Back ground harmonies moan as Hendrix sings of war causalities. Bass notes descend and carry as Jimi explodes off throughout the recording in a series of increasingly intense solos that leave his band mates scrambling to catch up. However, with Mitch Mitchell on drums and Billy Cox on bass, they are never far behind. To this day, this track is revered as one of the most powerful displays of electric guitar playing. If I can ever get my rig to support the amount of sustain Hendrix cranks out, I'll be a very happy player indeed.
