Album Review

Sammy Hagar took it easy on 2006's Livin' It Up! — maybe a bit too easy, styling himself after Jimmy Buffett's beach bongo, keeping things at a slow-rolling boil. It was a strangely appealing switch-up but it's not a big surprise that the Red Rocker returns to roaring guitars on its 2008 follow-up, Cosmic Universal Fashion. Here Sammy chases after his faded adolescence through the rose-tinted "Loud" and a cover of the Beastie Boys' "Fight for Your Right to Party," while bitching about fuddy-duddy fathers on "Switch on the Light." The electronic bluster of the opening title track shows that Sammy is at least trying to live in the moment instead of always leaning on the past, however, and although the slick "I'm on a Roll" threatens to boogie right off the tracks, at least it feels more age-appropriate. This is all relative, of course, as this is the guy who's still churning out grunge songs like "Peephole" when he wants to seem modern, which helps make the Little Feat-flavored blues "When the Sun Don't Shine" — the song closest to Livin' It Up! — easily the standout here. "When the Sun Don't Shine" is so effortlessly charming, it suggests that this is the road Sammy should travel these days.

Customer Reviews

Great CD!!!

Finally Sammy returns to a hard rocking sound. A good theme for this alblum: collarboration. Phyco Vertigo and Peephole are from Sammy and Planet Us (A former supergroup with Sammy and Neal Schon from Journey), Cosmic Universal Fashion (A collaboration with an Iraqi Soldier), and Loud (with the Guitarist from the Cult and Micheal Anthony). Fight for your right to party obviously being a cover of the beast boys hit, and dreams/Cabo being a Van Halen Remix. Through and through it rocks, and Sammy's been lacking that a little last album. Only Lowlights include I'm On A Roll and Fight For Your Right To Party. The rest of the CD is solid. Sammy keeps rocking!

"Like A Fine Wine Sammy Keeps Getting Better With Age"

Sammy never disappoints his true fans. Cosmic Universal Fashion shows Sammy's diverse musical talents and it ROCKS from start to finish. Eddie thanks for releasing Sammy from his VH prison. He truly enjoys life and appreciates his fans. You ought to give it a try. Looking forward to the Chickenfoot disc this spring as well! Thanks Sam & keep on Rocking!

Finally!

At long last the new album has arrived. And it was worth the wait. A great return to the more rocking side of the Redrocker. Loud is a great tune that will be at the top of my playlist. Cosmic Universal Fashion is another one sure to catch your attention. Can't wait to see what else Sammy Hagar has in store for us in the future.
