I'm going to buy this just to piss off the useful idiots. It's amazing the amount of pure ignorance thriving these days. If anything it's proof that Darwin was wrong. Survival of the fittest??? Ha! They should be thanking their lucky stars that there are so many generous people still alive willing to subsidize their wasted space and keep their bellies full and rain off their heads.

Oh...and yes, Derek St. Holmes sounds great. The band in general sounds very good.

I love Ted. Great production. Greg Smith is a huge asset on bass and vox. I just listen to the music and don't give a fuck about anyone's political opinion or ethics but my own. Ted is an institution of guitar and rock. Keep em coming.

yeah... I hope no one mentions the fact that Guitarworld is giving quite a lot of ink to this draft-dodging pedophile who rants about murdering American politicians and various other creatures. Oops... sorry about that!

This is about the warmest sounding production I've ever heard come from Ted.

Was that a Stranglehold quote? heheh

And now, the anti-Ted fanactics will fill the comments with their poorly worded and grammatically absurd opinions, based on uneducated guesses, "trash media" based political rhetoric, and straight up stupidity and ignorance...you know, I don't give a rat's @ss what Ted thinks about the state of politics anymore, and I DEFINITELY don't care what his "detractors" have to say...I've come to the conclusion that it's ALL BULLSH*T! I *do*, however, still dig the way Theordore wrangles his axe after all these years, the song is actually kinda catchy, the band is still hittin' on all 8 cylinders and Derek's vocals are as sharp as ever...and that's what's REALLY important for me!

I sort of agree with you JF. The anti-celebrity fanatics that follow certain people are as over the top as the people their protesting.

However, I also think celebrities have to learn when to say "No comment" and avoid controversy. Ted's made it a mission of his, a part of his brand, to make controversial statements. So much so that I just can't bring myself to add cash to his coffers.

Too bad to. One of the best concerts I ever saw was Ted and the boys around the time Tied Up In Love came out. But back then there was no internet, 24 hour media outlets were just ramping up and print media had better things to do with their time than follow guys like this around.

I'm right there with ya, NorthernGuitar...I miss the days when if you wanted to know what a musician was thinking at any given time, you listened to their lyrics! I've seen Ted and Co. a few times over the years and they've never failed to deliver a fantastic, high energy show each and every time...but the political rhetoric needs to stop, it's a MAJOR distraction from what they do best. It's more than a shame, it's downright ANNOYING when entertainers (both conservative and liberal) feel the need to force-feed their personal beliefs down their fans' throats...it's like these celebrity types think their fanbase is too stupid to form our own opinions, so instead they'll just speak to us like we're a group of 6 year olds, and try to make us believe that they know better than us! It's insulting, really...when I go to a rock and roll show, it's to see someone I respect musically perform, not to hear them babble on about political bullshit. I don't really care what Obama had for breakfast, I don't want to "SAVE THE WHARF RAT", I don't want to hear about what's happening 10,000 miles from here in a tiny village on the other side of the planet that's being controlled by a douchebag of their own choosing that doesn't agree with said entertainer's thoughts on political innuendo, and I don't need ANYBODY to form an opinion for me...I'm *already* highly opinionated enough, thankyouverymuch! Rock on, brothers and sisters!
