Yea, right on, dev. I remember getting a definite Hendrix vibe the very first time I heard the song. But I couldn't a place a finger on the exact song that made is seem so. Yea, Crosstown Traffic it is, dev (though I vaguely remember initially feeling it was like Foxy Lady in a sense)
I really think the rhythm section, throughout the album, is amazing. Wolfie and Alex seem to be in a tight, terrific lock-step in all the songs--making them sound heavier, and decidedly more dense & dynamic. The 'songwriting' is very skilful and makes the album apt for many repeat listens, as many of us seem to have already done. I have to confess how I'm a bit surprised at how much criticism Tattoo has copped, from many people, so far. I'd easily agree that almost all of the other songs on Truth are much better, but I still like Tattoo quite a lot, think it's a really cool tune, in its own way.
And I have to insist how I'm absolutely awed at Eddie's playing; how searingly sharp, focused, varied and resurgent it sounds, from start to finish. Listening to ADKT, it reminds me why EVH remains, in many ways, my all-time favourite guitar player on the planet.
