Customer Reviews

Hoekstra Rocks

Great listen. I liked the mix of vocal between the different singers, but you have to admit this is some great guitar playing. You can see why this guy has been part of some of the best bands from TS to Whitesnake. Great job Joel!!!!

True rock talent, it does not get any better!

The best rock album of the year!

Strong songs & excellent musicianship

Joel has put together an amazing album that has both heavy and light moments, great songs, with amazing musicianship. The more you listen, the more you will enjoy this release. One of my favorite albums of the last 10 years! Joel's hooks are very catchy and remind me of the hey day of classic rock, but this release has a very modern sound and structure. Creating a very fun album with many layers that makes every listen of the album an even more enjoyable experience.
