By Scott Goldfine

Dazzling guitarist Joe Satriani continues to singlehandedly breathe life into the rock instrumental. Producer Glyn Johns lends a deft touch to 12 Satriani-penned tracks, which range from the funky opener “Cool #9” to the bluesy “S.M.F.” to the tranquil “Home.”

The six-string slinger lays back in the groove a bit, allowing his music to smolder and swing more than ever before.
