4.0 out of 5 stars SLASH - APOCALYPTIC LOVE May 22, 2012
Format:Audio CD
When Slash released his debut solo album in 2010 it featured a wide and diverse selection of artists from the like of Ozzy to Fergie, Lemmy to Adam Levine as well as spots for Nicole Scherzinger, it was an album that worked well and featured a standout track in "By The Sword" sung by Andrew Stockdale of Wolfmother. The album also featured two songs by Alter Bridge frontman Myles Kennedy who would also go on to front Slash's group for his world tour during which he would sing songs from Slash's former bands as well as tracks from the album, so every night Kennedy would be filling the shoes of Axl Rose, Scott Weiland, Andrew Stockdale, Ian Astbury and Chris Cornell it was a job that he performed admiringly as his voice handled all the different ranges. So for Slash's second album Kennedy performs all the tracks, it seems like a natural progression and a working relationship has been built up by the two men.

The album itself "Apocalyptic Love" is a rock fuelled funk filled adrenaline rush of old school rock and roll and it's clear from the outset that the album has one intention and that's to rock, it's an album full of great riffs such as the opening song the title track "Apocalyptic Love" with its funk driven riff that has Myles Kennedy using his full vocal range to drive the song on and features a great sing along chorus. "One Last Thrill" starts out with a scream in the background before Kennedy delivers the lyrics at 100 miles rate; it's a great piece of punk rock. It shows Kennedy has many different styles of vocals. It's also topped off by a trademark Slash solo. There's some great drumming and bass playing from Brent Fitz and Todd kerns on the song "Standing In The Sun", both Fitz and Kerns are part of slash's live band.

5.0 out of 5 stars What Rock 'n' Roll Should Be May 24, 2012
By AS
Format:Audio CD
'Apocalyptic Love' is credited as Slash's second solo album, but in truth, it's more like like the debut album of his new band. After a number of talented-but-unstable frontmen, Slash finally seems to have found his perfect musical partner in Myles Kennedy. The tight and propulsive rhythm section of Todd Kerns and Brent Fitz is a force to be reckoned with as well, rounding out "The Conspirators". The results of this collaboration is a thoroughly enjoyable hard rock record that marks some of the best work of all the players involved.

It may have taken decades in the business and several different bands along the way before finding each other, but Myles and Slash both compliment and push each other in mutually beneficial and interesting ways. Though his work in Alter Bridge is stellar, that band plays more to Kennedy's heavier, more metal sensibilities; with Slash, Kennedy gets to show off his looser, bluesier, rock 'n' roll side. Myles' voice is, quite simply, a thing of beauty, and the man is capable of singing just about anything. His assortment of high-pitched wails, soulful crooning, and lower-register vocals are the perfect compliment to Slash's playing, which, as usual, is phenomenal and instantly recognizable.

The album is a straight-up blast of hard rock, the kind Slash lives to play: melodic, riff-heavy, and with an abundance of his trademark solos. The joy behind the album is pretty apparent in every track, as well it should be; for the first time in years, perhaps ever, Slash is playing in a band that doesn't seem on the verge of imploding at any given moment. Amazingly, none of the album's 13 tracks (15 in the Deluxe Edition) feel like filler, for each of them carry their own groove and energy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Congratulations, it's a Band! May 28, 2012
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
As I played this the first time, I was thrilled to find that each cut was as good or better than the one before. Besides the title cut & the single, "You're A Lie," I esp. liked "No More Heroes," & "Anastasia." Slash sounds better than ever, and technically he's raised the bar for his fellow Rock Gods, by laying down everything from flamenco to metal. It's no wonder that throughout his career, everyone from Iggy Pop and Micheal Jackson, to Alice Cooper and more recently, Rihanna, have asked him to play on their records.

Myles Kennedy is the perfect lyrical muse/lead vocalist for Slash and his unbelievably well-honed chops. He proved himself worthy by being the only artist to sing on two tracks on Slash's debut solo album, ("Starlignt," and "Back From Cali,") and then touring with Slash for that album and not only nailing songs from it by Ian Astbury, Chris Cornell, and Andrew Stockdale, (no small feat,) but also material from Velvet Revolver, Slash's Snakepit, and of course, some of Guns N' Roses's greatest hits. Check out the double live disc, Featuring Myles Kennedy Live (Made In Stoke 24/7/11) if you missed the tour.

Finally, after twenty-five-plus years, a handful of bands/projects, a serious health scare, (2001 heart failure,) a couple of wives, and kids, epic drug addiction, and 6 years of sobriety, Slash finally has the Kick You in the Face rock band he deserves! Seriously, in my opinion, Slash and his wicked guitars, plus Myles Kennedy on vocals, Todd Kerns on bass, and Brent Fitz on drums, (otherwise known as "Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators,") equal one helluva great rock and roll band.

Some good stuff here. Saw them live as warm up band for Aerosmith. If they'd have had run of the full stage and lighting/sound gear they might have almost upstaged them. Read more
