Product Description

"The feel and energy of Libertad informs the eternal struggle for freedom - individual, political and social freedom." So says Velvet Revolver's frontman Scott Weiland in describing the band's forthcoming album. Produced by Brendan O'Brien, Libertad is the follow-up to Contraband, VR's debut album, released in June 2004, which earned three million in sales worldwide, debuted on the Billboard Top 200 Album Chart at #1 and was awarded a Grammy for the lead track, "Slither." 1st single: She Builds Quick Machines.

When they exploded out of the gates on their 2004 debut, Contraband, Velvet Revolver were met with as much diffidence as appreciation. After all, supergroups have tended to detonate as often as succeed, and with vocalist Scott Weiland, bassist Duff McKagan, and guitarist Slash all vying to keep the lit match away from the fuse, the odds against this band ever seeing album #2 were even money at best. Surprise! Not only have Velvet Revolver survived three years with unreckless abandon, this album blows the doors off its predecessor. Save a pair of disinfected ballads ("The Last Fight," "Gravedancer"), Libertad is all about hand-grenade chords, drag-racing riffs, and circus-tent choruses. The ageless McKagan and Slash continually gun for the disorderliness of their former band (most notably on the punkish opener "Let It Roll" and its lewd brother "Spay"), while Weiland sounds--knock on wood--positively clean and like a voice of boisterous renewal on tracks like "Mary Mary," "She Builds Quick Machines," and the melt-in-your-mouth cover of ELO's "Can't Get It Out of My Head." Obviously egos have been checked at the studio door, as Velvet Revolver have already exceeded their anticipated existence. And now that existence goes back on the clock, trying to outshine a second album that's head-and-shoulders better than the first. --Scott Holter

Anytime a band has a successful debut album, the follow-up is always a challenge. The "sophomore slump," as it is called, has been known to rear its ugly head, time and time again, derailing the momentum of many up-and-coming artists.

For a "super-group," especially, the second album is going to be particularly important.

Velvet Revolver's debut album "Contraband" (2004) entered number one on the charts, selling two million copies in the United States alone, and spawned three huge singles. But was it all just a fluke? Did Velvet Revolver find success only because the band contained alumni from Guns N' Roses and Stone Temple Pilots? Can curiosity and hype alone account for the band's success? While Velvet Revolver's detractors will argue yes, the evidence points to no.

While "Contraband" has some flaws, like a muddled mix and a monotonous first third, when the album is good, it's very good. Songs like "Slither," "You Got no Right," "Set Me Free" and "Loving the Alien" among others proved that Velvet Revolver was more than just a band that looked good on paper. "Loving the Alien," especially, with guitarist Slash's signature bluesy soloing over singer Scott Weiland's soulful delivery, rivaled the best of vintage GN'R and STP, sounding like a glorious "November Rain/Big Empty" hybrid.

Taking three years to release their second album, Velvet Revolver are back with "Libertad," (2007) an album that proves Velvet Revolver to be more that just a novelty act; demonstrating that the band has some real potential staying power.

Upon listening to "Libertad" the first thing that's apparent is how much more cohesive the band sounds now than they did on their debut.

On the enhanced CD Extra portion of Libertad (viewable on your PC), Scott Weiland says that Velvet Revolver's unified goal for Libertad was to, "make the best record that any of us have ever made." Congratulations, Scott. You've succeeded tremendously!

Libertad is to date the best Rock release of 2007. And it is indeed as good as any record that anyone in the band has ever participated in recording....Yes, even as good as the classic Appetite for Destruction Appetite for Destruction . Hence, it goes without saying that Libertad is as good as the best STP album and it's even better than Velvet Revolver's own 2004 release Contraband Contraband (and Libertad doesn't have that annoying copy-protection software attached to it that Contraband had).

Libertad rocks. It is a Hard Rock record with clear vocals, melodic rhythms and--oh my God!--tons of guitar solos! Clearly Velvet Revolver were not influenced by the countless Sons of Plunder label executives that roll up their sleeves and tell new modern rock bands that you need to sound like Nickleback in order to sell a CD. Could you imagine trying to tell Slash that he needs to cut back on his guitarwork? No worries on Libertad; this disk is full of some of Slash's finest playing.

Scott Weiland sounds better than I've ever heard him. His range is amazing, and I swear that I walked away from my first few listens thinking that this is one of the best Hard Rock singers on the circuit today.

Matt Sorum (drums), Dave Kushner (guitar) and Duff McKagan (bass) are all back and are all playing their best.

If Velvet Revolver never made it to album number two, no one would be surprised. Afterall, a supergroup featuring ex-members of Guns N' Roses and fronted by arguably the biggest ego of the grunge era, Scott Weiland, didn't seem like a project built to last when they formed. But with "Libertad," Velvet Revolver have the goods to back up their place in the modern rock world. Not only is "Libertad" a stunning blow against the sophmore slump, but it is also the band finally gelling together, creating something new instead of something nostalgic. And as a triple threat, it's easily the most exciting pure rock album released in the past few years.

Unlike it's predecessor, "Contraband," this album sounds like a real band, not just a happy marriage of two different styles. Whereas "Contraband" sounded like lost Guns N' Roses material with Scott Weiland doing vocals, "Libertad" sounds like a different beast. Slash, Duff, and even Matt don't deny their musical heritage on this album, but they do an excellent job of reinventing their signature style. It's still got that ballsy, punk-rock meets classic-rock feel, but with a modern twist that ensures longevity and more creativity to come. Truly, Axl must be jealous by now. And also unlike the debut, Scott comes across more as himself than before, and the music actually allows it. No doubt, his performance before was merely conforming to the music. Here, however, the signature Weiland style can be heard in all it's glory, and it all works well together. "Let It Roll" and "Get Out The Door" may pick up where "Contraband" left off, and the stadium-rock appeal of "She Builds Quick Machines" and "Just Sixteen" will likely be memorable hit singles that will please everyone.
