I was quite surprised by the production of this song. Slash plays a cool top heavy riff with cutting bite on the tremelo notes, reminescent of the old Guns n' Roses, but a better song arrangement. Slash definitely filled the vocal slot with top notch talent with singer Myles Kennedy. He has a great sounding, powerful voice with range and is a perfect fit for the song. And the song -- it moves with great riffing, nice rhythm fills and sustaining power chords giving a nod to Leslie West old school. Myles Kennedy shows his talent with crescendo vocals that will send chills up your spine.
Overall, the song surprised me. Slash went beyond himself to align with superior talent and it shows. I'm an old rock n' roller and pretty hard critic, but believe in giving credit where credit is due.
Hence, the 5 star rating. Slash combined a fresh feel, with a groove riff and stunning vocals. Play this song loud and enjoy it.

I had to admit I was a bit skeptical about Slash. I never thought of him as being a songwriter, just a great guitarist. Boy was I wrong! I heard this song, liked it immediately and bought the album. Want a really great rock album, then I suggest you get on board and buy Apocalyptic Love. And then after that, buy Slash's Snakepit album as well, because that one is just as great!
