Eddie Van Halen's son, Wolfgang, has finally released his solo album. He wrote all the songs, played all the instruments, did all the vocals. I think he even recorded it himself. He's not the virtuoso that his father was, but that doesn't matter. He's a damn good musician in his own right. The music is pretty damn good, too. The song about his father, Distance, is particularly poignant.

Have you guys heard it? What do you think?

Lead back to the earth the virtue that flew away, as I do-back to the body, back to life, that it may give the earth a meaning, a human meaning. -Nietzsche

I've only heard a couple of tracks from it, and I wasn't terribly impressed. I need a long car ride so I can stream the entire album.

I haven't heard any songs, but I'll stick it on Spotify on the way home. Looking at Spotify, Don't look back seems to be a popular one.

Had a listen. It has an old school rock feel to it - it could be quite at home in the 90s. I could get on board with it! This album feels quite straight-forward in terms of songs - guitar intro, bring the other instruments in, start the verse, chorus etc. I reckon it would be fun to play some of those riffs.

It's impressive that he recorded the whole thing himself. Respect for that. I'd be interested how his 2nd album develops musically, assuming that's on the cards. This seems like a reasonably safe album.

I'm going to see Mammoth WVH on August 29th in Tucson. Will try to post a review afterwards in this thread.
