Editorial Reviews

Duff McKagan is a founding member of both Guns 'n' Roses and Velvet Revolver. He has sold over 100 million albums in his career.The Taking is the brand new studio album from Duff McKagan's Loaded. It is the band's third studio album and the first to feature new drummer Isaac Carpenter. The album features 11 new songs, which continue the band's trademark blend of hard rock with a punk edginess that makes them instantly identifiable. The songs were written over a period of time in late 2009 / early 2010 and the band went into the studio in August 2010 with renowned rock producer Terry Date (Slipknot, Pantera etc). The result is Loaded's most accomplished and most hard hitting album to date.

First off, this album ROCKS! It combines elements of hard rock, punk, and heavy metal, and it sounds amazing! Loaded is the brainchild of Duff McKagan featuring McKagan on lead vocals and guitars, and The Taking delivers with a sonic boom! With dark undertones, rough edges and grungy vocals, there is not one filler song on this album. "Executioner's Song" features some amazing guitar work with heavy, pounding riffs. "Cocaine" and "Follow Me To Hell" ooze with pure rawness. "King of the World" shows off Duff's vocals and has a punk infused bluesy rock feel. "Wrecking Ball" rings of street spirituality and features wailing guitar riffs, while "Dead Skin" shows off McKagan's pop rock slide guitar playing. The songs are well written, the production is crisp, and it leaves you wanting more. I would highly recommend this album to anyone as Duff succeeds in giving us yet another hard rocking, high energy recording!

I just got my cd this morning and I LOVE IT! It's loud and proud, the way rock should be! I had to take a short break after the first play 'cause my adrenaline was getting dangerously high. lol But I'm fixing to give to go for round 2! Now if the sun would just come out so I can put the top down on my car and play the music loud enough to do it justice. :)

Ex- Guns N Roses & Velvet Revolver bassist Duff McKagan serves up another offering from his self named "Loaded" project, which if you go by the reviews posted on-line is a very good album. McKagan's punk influences have always shone through in his music right back from early GNR days, and now that he is able to steer his own ship those influences have come to the fore even more. This album has quite a degree of punk overtone and as such it sounds quite raw and full of attitude, the latter for which McKagan has become renowned. The result of making such an album though is that the production sounds quite noisy and chaotic. I actually quite like a certain degree of "rawness" which I believe is severely lacking in a lot of music produced in today's digital age and McKagan should be commended for bringing this quality through, but the overall sound here is just not appealing to me at all because it's just too noisy. I also think that part of the problem with the sound is that generally speaking the songs just aren't that good either. Maybe I could have handled the sound better if the songs themselves were better, but with production like this and bad song writing it makes for a pretty poor album overall in my opinion, and not one that should be a contender for my top five 2011 albums in the slightest.

It doesn't help when the man really hasn't been blessed with a decent voice, and certainly what McKagan lacks in vocal ability he makes up for in attitude and effort, but that alone isn't enough for me when this album also has the previously mentioned detriments.

One word: AMAZING!!!

It's one of the best albuns of this year. Each song you hear you can see the best of Duff here.
Indian Summer is my favorite song, but it's not so easy to choice. Dead Skin, We Win, She's An Anchor are amazing. Lords Of Abbadon is the first and when you hear it you can see this is a perfect album.

Thanks Duff, Jeff, Mike and Isaac YOU ROCK MY SOUL!!

DUFF MCKAGAN'S LOADED - THE TAKING

The first time i listened to this record the thing that came to my mind was what an awesome album The Taking is.
The production can't be better,incredible! Terry Date is a genious. Duff is better than ever on his guitar and vocals duties. He's just THE BEST! Jeff rouse is a GREAT bass player at his best in this album.His bass lines are terrific! Mike Squires has done a SUPERB job and has really good guitar solos in The Taking. Isaac Carpenter drumming is simply GORGEOUS!

In general i'm sure this album will put Loaded in its place as one of the best rock bands out there. Great musicians, players and songwriters.The Taking is the best album of the band,no doubt about it. Loaded has matured since Sick was released and you can feel the band's chemistry playing together in this wonderful album. This is the heaviest and punkiest album of the band 'til now. The lyrics are dark and in your face. In fact, the whole album is in your face!

The opening song Lords of Abaddon is really hard and punk rocker.One of the best songs in the album.

Executioner's song is a tune we know from their EP Wasted Heart, but in this album has been improved and sounds better and heavier. Great song.

Dead Skin is the perfect first single and video.One of my personal favourites.I love the lyrics.

We Win is the most anthemic song of the band. Perfect for sports and singing along in gigs.

Easier Lying is a little masterpiece with a really cool rythm section.One of the best songs too.

She's an Anchor is maybe the catchiest song in the album and one of my faves.One of the songs in wich i love Duff's voice the most.

Indian summer is my favourite song right now.
