from Tom in the I.L.L.

"National Champions" is still the best disc of the year. Chickenfoot put out their album last Friday and it's great. Joe Satriani is a genius on guitar. Sammy Hagar is one of the best rock and roll frontmen out there. The songs are fun. But as I listen to the album more, I start hearing the lyrics more. My favorite song on "Chickenfoot" is "Sexy Little Thing", a catchy, drivin' beat. When it gets to Sammy singing, "Now my little friend is coming out to play", though, I just have to shake my head. Do I really wanna be out on the patio cranking it up singing along with "Now my little friend is coming out to play"?
"Chickenfoot" is a great album. "National Champions" is a great album, but it's also a smart album. I ain't ashamed to put that one on and sing along to every lyric.
If record releases, were race cars, my friend, "National Champions" would win the Indy 500.
