"Sessions" was recorded at Soundhouse Studios in Ballard. Engineered and mixed by Brandon Busch. The 7 track album clocking in at 27:18 featured Joshua Henningsgaard on lead guitar/vocals and as an additional songwriter. Josh remained a part of the lineup until 2010 when he left Bad Love for Thailand to live out a long time dream. Reception was positive yet limited. Notable songs including "Leavin' Out Your Back Door" received some minor airplay and "Cosmic Transmission" was selected by Classic Rock UK Magazine for inclusion in "We're An American Band" (2010) a compilation of deemed-worthy U.S. rock groups.

Praise for Sessions - "They’re from Seattle, their logo involves a naked, musclebound Jesus and a flaming guitar, their singer’s name is Crawlin’ Snake and their influences include James Brown, acid rock, and weekend-long house parties. I think that pretty much explains everything." - Ken McIntyre (Classic Rock Magazine UK)

"These guys shower audiences with blistering blues-riffage and hard rock gusto." - Guitar Doug (Seattle Sinner)
