    Lickety Split is not only a joyous, unhindered return to form, but the group's finest studio offering to date.

    The guitar work is explosive and vibrant, and Mr. Randolph’s band is accustomed to turning a congregation into a howling audience (and vice versa). At times it’s easy to forget that this isn’t a live recording, which seems like the point.

    Randolph has come home and he’s never sounded better.

    The songs really serve as a backdrop for Randolph’s musical prowess. Designed to work for frat kids, fest-goers and other party people, in the end, what matters is the way he plays.

    As it stands, this selection of songs did not translate well to the sterile environment of the studio, and, because of that, the final product falls flat on feeling the spirit.

    Carlos Santana's guest spot on "Brand New Wayo" sounds less than "Smooth," and the entire ethos of "Welcome Home" works like repurposed new country.
