When I first heard this album, I thought it was right on target with what Sammy can write. I think with the edition of the guitarist, he has added a rough edge as well as a modern sound. I also like that Sammy has incorporated the backing vocals “ala Van Halen” in song like “Tropic of Capricorn” and “Serious JuJu”. It just shows that Sammy is a great song writer. “Tropic of Capricorn” is a “happy song”. “Shaka Doobie (The Limit)” is a great rock song as well as “Serious JuJu”. Really all the songs are great, but I have my favorites. “The Message” has the same vibe of “Right Now” from Van Halen.
