Others hear how a track like this is somewhat disjointed, think the Jones influence is minimal and dismiss it as just another side project for these GOTSA guys (because these guys generally don't like to be challenged with material like this). Which is unfortunate, because it they gave it half a chance, they'd probably be happy with at least half the album because of it's neo Zep production alone. I liked it enough to burn a copy. This track started to get some radio legs late last year, then died out.
Its interesting on its own merits. Its clearly a collaboration, and you can hear all three players in the compositions. The song I posted is a radio tune...and not my favorite, but there are some raw rock tunes on the album.

What is interesting to me about it is that it covers a wide swath of rock from Zeppelin-type jams to modern White Stripes sequences. I like all three musicians (Jones is one of my favorite bass players), so its interesting to hear what bubbles up amongst them.

While I wouldn't say that the album is great, I would certainly say that it is very good. The musicians are so talented, and are clearly enjoying what they are doing that they are capable of creating a great album.
