Album Review

I thought it would be good to reccomend some of the best guitar albums out at the moment so i will start with what i think is the best thing i have heard in ages which is the new album by " The Crooked Vultures " , the album by the now called supergroup of John Paul Jones (Led Zeppelin), Dave Grohl (Nirvana/Foo Fighters) and Josh Homme (Queens of the Stone Age).

As a fan of Zeppelin you can hear in the music where John Paul Jone's influence appears and mix this in with Dave Grohl's big drum sound and Josh Homme's Vocals and you have a cracking sound and a set of songs which i don't ever tire of listening to at full blast on the car stereo.

The best tracks that standout are "Caligulove", "Gunman", and "Dead End Friends".
