Toy Story...didn't see it. Toy Story 2...didn't see it. Now there's a Toy Story 4? I think Rand knows what a ballad is. Wonder what the original title was? No matter, he proabbly banged this out in 3 minutes before rushing out to meet a young associate of his at the Bel-Air Hotel. Sometime later, the smug musical criminals in Nashville did their best impression of what regular music is, and sent it to that Stapeton guy. He's a cowboy.

Ah, the quintessential blooze album where the only thing that sounds good is the rhythm guitar. The fare here runs the gamut, from I hate this groove to I hate this classic song now. Seems like it would be easy these days to make a blues record that isn't hackneyed and embarassing, but I guess the Bonamassa era gives this stuff a free pass. There are nice moments, like Larry Carlton sounding just like himself on the title track. But mostly, this stays in the shrinkwrap unless you pay for the meet-and-greet.
