At this point, Tom Morello’s solo albums sound like the polar opposite of Rage Against the Machine’s music, which blows.
So, am I looking forward to Morello’s next batch of tunes? Me thinks not.
Nevertheless, dude’s got 19 songs ready for a new solo album he claims will be “very hard and very funky.”
He says every album he’s releasing is funky.
Sorry if I don’t believe you this time, Tom.
“I want to take my guitar playing places it’s never been. I want to take the musical underpinnings of what I do and blow them up and put something brand new together that’s not The Nightwatchman, that’s not Rage Against The Machine, that’s not Audioslave, that’s not Street Sweeper Social Club — it’s something completely different and that feels like an exciting challenge.”
“It’s time to rock. I want to make the craziest guitar record that anyone’s ever heard. The idea is that this is the Hendrix of now.”
