Album 365: Day 162 - John 5 - God Told Me To

John 5
God Told Me To

Favorite tracks: Welcome To Violence, Ashland Bump, The Castle
Sleeper tracks: Beat It

I wasn't blown away by this record.

John 5 was the guitar player in Marilyn Manson's band and played with Rob Zombie.  Before that, he played with David Lee Roth.

The album was half electric shredding and half acoustic shredding.  I didn't like the tone of his lead guitar.  It was a little to 'swarm of bees' sounding and lacked definition.  I'm guessing there weren't a lot of amps used in the recording process.  The drums were also fake which really annoys the hell out of me.

His acoustic songs were some of my favorites.  I wasn't expecting to hear him play acoustic as well as he did.
