    Default Close to greatness but falls on face

    Sorry, but I cannot recommend this one.



    Bearing in mind that I grew up loving the guitar work that Carlos recorded on the first 5 or 6 LPs, I find his playing on this one painful and embarrassing. And it is a damned shame, because the rhythm section iis fantastic and Neal Schon's contributions are great. A few of the songs have utterly stupid lyrics, badly sung, but it's the soloing by Carlos that makes this one a failure. If you have an Amazon Prime account you can stream the whole thing for free, but if I had paid money for this I would be disgusted.

    Thanks for the warning Mike, I was looking forward to this one. I will just wait
    until someone puts it up on YT for a listen.

    Carlos is just recycling and it shows. It is hard to keep the flame burning for that many years. And that Lion has too many eyes and serious dental problems.
    Some contend that rock 'n roll is bad for the body & bad for the soul
    Bad for the heart, bad for the mind, bad for the deaf & bad for the blind.
    It makes some men crazy and they talk like fools.
    Makes some men crazy and they start to drool.
