Great Album!

Most memorable melodies from Joe since Super Colossal. I really enjoyed this album on the first listen. No skipper songs on the record. Unstoppable Momentum has a more serious vibe than the previous two albums. This is a Joe Satriani record!!! Satch fans will enjoy this one.

Nothing sticks...

He is a legend. But nothing here stands out. The compositions are dull and do not inspire me to grab my guitar like some other stuff he has done. The melodies are simple and unmemorable. Some technical wizardry here and there, (the first run he does gets you excited..but that went away and got lost in an unmemorable piece.) but it often seems like a canned run up and down the neck that could fit in any composition of his. Unfortunately, Joe is compared to Joe. I can remember every note of every piece off some early albums. This just seems filler material. The drums are busy and effective, but punctuate his work at places he does nothing but let the rhythm blandly roll. I don't get it. He hasn't lost skill, but for me to forego this album in my ride to listen to something else is pretty significant in my mind. I was excited, but I also knew this might happen. His guitar work with Chickenfoot was of no note at all. To be fair, a live Joe show will always be epic. But these late albums are pretty boring. Dang it!

Beyond boring!

I've got to say that my Satriani gas tank has run dry. I hate that too....I've been a Satch fan since the beginning. Not of this Earth, Surfing with the Alien, Flying in a Blue Dream, The Extremist....excellent albums! Where's the passion at, like with those albums? Live in San Francisco has got to be the best live album of his. Listen to "The Crush of Love" "Until We Say Goodbye" "Love Thing" and the infamous "Rubina"....the tones and feeling on those tracks (back then) is irreplaceable. His songs nowadays don't flow like they did back then....they're all weird and too technical. I want the old Satriani and the old Steve Vai back for that matter!
