4.0 out of 5 stars Great guitar rock album November 23, 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
4. 5 Stars

Slash...a guitarist that needs no introduction. In the late 80s, while rock was up to its waist in Eddie Van Halen clones, Slash brought the classic sound of Joe Perry and Jeff Beck back in style. His playing thrilled and captivated a generation of fans. His signature top-hat and dangling cigarette became synonymous with cool. As the lead guitarist for Guns N' Roses ('85-'93) he was more than just a guitar hero, he was a pop-cultural icon.

Fast-forward to 2004. Almost a full decade after the demise of the original Guns N' Roses, Slash makes a huge comeback with his new band Velvet Revolver. But what about the ten years between Guns N' Roses and Velvet Revolver?

When (then) Guns N' Roses guitarist Slash went into the studio to record "It's Five O' Clock Somewhere," (1995) it was not initially supposed to be a solo project or a new band. Anxious to get back on the road with a new album, Slash recorded a batch of new songs and presented them to Axl Rose as the follow-up to the "Use Your Illusion" (1991) albums. Much to Slash's disappointment, Slash claims the material was shot down by Rose as sounding "too retro." (NOTE: In Rose's defense, he claims he would have worked with the material, as it had potential.) Not wanting to waste the songs, Slash formed a new band to finish the material and release an album. Slash retained (then) Guns N' Roses drummer Matt Sorum and rhythm guitarist Gilby Clarke, who had just recently left GN'R. Alice In Chains bassist Mike Inez and the unknown vocalist Eric Dover rounded out the band.

In the early days of post-grunge, when old-school guitar AOR was all but left-for-dead, "It's Five O' Clock Somewhere" was a complete throwback to 70s/80s arena style rock.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good debut album by ex-Gunner 'Slash'. January 9, 2000
Format:Audio CD
As a debut album by former Guns N' Roses guitar-god, Slash, shows to a great extent just how much input on the sound of his former band. He brings this style to "It's Five O'Clock Somewhere". It's brash, occasionally rough, bluesy, but definately rock and roll. Just so you know, the hignlights of this record are Neither Can I, Dime Store Rock, Beggars and Hangers On, and a few more. His attempt at a love song in I Hate Everybody (But You), dedicated to his former wife, Renee, is okay as well. Pick this one up is you dig Guns N' Roses and Slash's bluesy rock style, you will be happy with the purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars What Slash was all about on Appetite for Destruction August 15, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Slash is a one-of-a-kind guitar player, and any fan can pick out a new song from one of Slash's bands (the latest being Velvet Revolver) just on his unique bluesy guitar style. After seeing the direction Axl wanted to take GNR with electronic music, it was a relief to see Slash get back to his roots, to the blues music he loved, and release this outstanding album with the very talented Eric Dover on vocals.

This is an album for hard rock fans who thought Appetite was the best thing to come out of GNR. If over-the-top stuff like Novemeber Rain is your favorite, you might not appreciate Slash's Snakepit as much. This is Slash truly playing the music he wanted to do with GNR.

There are some great blues rock songs on here, especially Be the Ball and Neither Can I. Personally, I love Doin' Fine, which is nothing but a pure party song. I've played that for a lot of non-GNR fans and they've enjoyed it.

On a side note, I had the pleasure of seeing Slash's Snakepit open for AC/DC back in 2000, and Dover did a dead-on impression of Axl singing Mr. Brownstone that proved the band had a great sense of humor along with their immense talent.

5.0 out of 5 stars What? April 30, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Is this a joke? There have got to be 35 mindless, one-line reviews giving the album one star. Most of them comment on his guitar-playing prowess. As someone who has been playing for over 15 years, I can assure you that Slash is among the best of the last 50 years. I wonder what tripe these detracors are listening to. A few other reviewers comment that this album doesn't sound enough like GN'R. Well, none of their solo records do. GN'R was a combination of all the members' styles. This is Slash's, and it rocks the way rock is meant to.

5.0 out of 5 stars Other than GNR, this is as good as it gets! November 30, 2001
Format:Audio CD
This album is hands down one of the best rock albums I own. I dont care if everyone disagrees me. Everyone seems to have a problem with the vocalist (Eric Dover) but he's not that bad at all. The man's edgy, rough style fits with every song. I was actually quite impressed. Words cannot describe Slash's guitar play. People say that he was trying to recreate GNR, but thats just HIS style. GNR was based around his guitar play just as Snakepit is. In my opinion this album is better than the new Snakepit album. Dont get me wrong, the new album rocks, but it doesn't have as much solo time for Slash. Anyway, buy this album, its well worth every penny.

4.0 out of 5 stars Packs a punch better than most music out now August 3, 2002
Format:Audio CD
ok, so Slash knew this album wasn't going to be a classic, but this was just a side project while GN'R weren't doin anything. Eric Dover is no Axl Rose (then again, who is?), Slash again provin one of the worlds greatest guitarists and a decent line-up for the rest of the band which is: Mike Inez(alice in chains normally), Gilby Clarke(ex-gnr), and Matt Sorum(ex-gnr). This was an experimental album for Slash, trying to add some blues to the GN'R sound which works in most cases. The second Snakepit album 'Ain't Life Grand'is probably better but this is well worth buying if you're into GN'R.
