Customer Reviews

All of the singers bring very different styles to each song.
J. Hintz
This may well be one of the best hard rock albums to come out of 2010, and to my ears the best thing Slash has put out since his Guns and Roses years.
Steven Sly
This album is full of really good songs--actually, some are just OK, others are great!

Ever since I read in Slash's book that he planned to do a "Slash and Friends" record I looked forward to the day it happened. Well that day is here, albeit under a different title. "Slash and Friends" was kind of a corny name anyway; the self-titled Slash is much cooler. Although I wouldn't be surprised to see this record's name ultimately default to the little inscription on the cover that reads "R&FNR". In fact that's exactly how I will refer to it for the rest of this review.

And R&FNR is certainly an apt title, because this is a great Rock and FN Roll record. You get a nice array of rock musicians combined with a nice array of rock vocalists to lift Slash to what I hope will be a big selling record for the guy. It goes without saying that Slash rips it up on every song. I dare say that R&FNR may be Slash's best recording since Appetite for Destruction...okay, at least Contraband.

Slash is joined by many different players across the 14 tracks included on the Amazon MP3 release, including to name a few: most of his former GNR members (except Axl), Dave Grohl & supposedly Travis Barker (but darned if I can figure out or find info on exactly which song(s) it is that Barker is playing on). And on vocals, the guest appearances and songs sound like this:

1. "Ghost" featuring Ian Astbury of The Cult. Great hard rocker to start the record.
2. "Crucify the Dead" with Ozzy. 'Slow & go' rocker with Taylor Hawkins of Foo Fighters banging the drums.

Having recorded five albums with Guns N' Roses, two with Slash's Snakepit and two with Velvet Revolver, Slash finally unleashes his first solo album, with a motley collection of players. "Slash" (2010) features a cast of newer cats such as Myles Kennedy (Alter Bridge), and Adam Levine (Maroon 5) and veterans such as Ian Astbury (the Cult) and Ozzy Osbourne.

"Slash" is a highly diverse album that should have something for everyone, as the album doesn't have a lot of repetition, as each song is a unique collaboration between Slash and the guest artist featured on the track. Bassist Chad Chaney (Jane's Addiction) and John Freese (A Perfect Circle, Guns N' Roses, Nine Inch Nails) round out the band.

1. Ghosts (featuring Ian Astbury). A great mid-tempo opener that wouldn't have been out of place on the Cult's "Electric" (1987) album. Great to see Slash and Izzy rock once more.

2. Crucify the Dead (featuring Ozzy Osbourne). A bluesy, haunting vintage Ozzy-rocker that really wouldn't sound out-of-place on any of his albums. Although Slash has denied it, with lyrics like "A loaded gun jammed by a rose, the thorns are not around your head, your ego cursed you till you bled," it's hard not to believe this song isn't about Axl.

3. Beautiful Dangerous (featuring Fergie). The album takes a real left-turn with this song which sounds a bit like the band Garbage. When I first heard that Fergie from the Black Eyed Peas would be singing on this album, I was not impressed, to say the least. Seemed like a totally lame idea--an obvious attempt at creating a cross-over hit. That said, "Beautiful Dangerous" totally rocks. Fergie actually has a powerful voice that fits the song really well. The song has a great hook and should be an obvious choice to use as a single.

I bought this CD without an expectation, I was there in the 80's when Gn'R came out but those years have been long gone and have not followed Slash all that closely. It is good to see that Slash has evolved and is not affraid to venture into different territory. I found most of the songs on this CD quite tasteful and well arranged, I am not a fan of Fergie and cringed when I saw Adam Levine's name but it turns out Adam delivers the song incredibly well.
Don't get me wrong, my favorite song is still Doctor Alibi with Lemmy, as I am mainly a rocker but I am really pleased with this record as a listener and as a guitarist.

You just can't have an 80's mullet forever you know? at some point it started looking ridiculous.

I don't want to do a song by song review. But just note that each track has a style catered to each featuring artist, but still remaining very "Slash".
It's almost like Slash was making tribute or homage to his current favorites.
How good is this album? I hate the Black Eyed Peas, I can't stand Fergie most of the time...but I am eating crow right now. "Beautiful Dangerous" featuring Fergie is turning into one of my favorite tracks.
I really hope they can perform this live somewhere, perhaps another late night gig. The energy she brings must be seen.

Well done Slash, I see myself playing this album for weeks on end.

Slash is no stranger to collaboration. He has recorded with the likes of Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Ray Charles, Alice Cooper, Cheap Trick, and a host of other bands and artists over the years. His work with Guns N' Roses is legendary, his work with Velvet Revolver was notable and his side project, Slash's Snakepit, did a great job of showing off his skills. With a few signature Gibson guitars and a trademark look, complete with top hat and sunglasses, there is no question Slash is one of the most recognized and widely respected guitarists ever. With this in mind, it is no surprise Slash has finally decided to release a solo album highlighting his abilities.

Slash is a guitarist. He plays the guitar incredibly well and really doesn't do much else. This holds true for his solo record. Those hoping to hear what Slash's vocals might sound like will be disappointed to learn he doesn't sing a note on his own solo record, instead offering the honor to a different vocalist on every track in the same way Santana did with Supernatural. Unlike Santana, however, Slash concentrated on his original core of fans when choosing names to collaborate with. Jack White may have turned him down, but that doesn't mean the cast of Slash isn't impressive. Ozzy Osbourne, Fergie, Chris Cornell, Andrew Stockdale, Dave Grohl, Kid Rock, and Iggy Pop are just a few of the artists that share a track with Slash on the guitar.

Intricate guitar work is the forefront from the very beginning. Ian Astbury of the Cult takes the vocals on the first song; a track with a rather repetitive, yet impressive guitar backdrop aided by the presence of rhythm guitarist Izzy Stradlin. This seems to set the tone for a record with variety in vocals, but not necessarily in songwriting.
