Top Customer Reviews
Myles is great here as always, he just has such chops There are some real standouts and only one, not so much for me. I am not a Kid Rock fan or really never was gravitated towards Adam Levine's work but those are 2 great pieces here. Ian Astbury kicks some butt, and my idol Chris Cornell, who I speak of with total bias because he is so gifted, has a stand-out to me. Iggy is great and Rocco Deluca's piece is really one of my favorites. Heck Ozzy is even here and gives a solid classical Ozzy piece.
I hope Slash continues to do this. I'll buy them as long as they come out. These collaborations give the finished work such great diversity. To me, this makes an album more enjoyable, interesting, with much more longevity.
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.
So here is it , plain and simple , yet complex and fresh
Track by track
1.Ghost (Feat. Ian Astbury) - Great starter for such an album with a cool riff opening up and continuing throughout the song!
Izzy Stradlin is playing rhythm on this one :)
Glad he's chosen to work with Slash again officially !
2.Crucify The Dead (Feat. Ozzy Osbourne) - Best song on the album
Why ? Listen to the lyrics carefully ! <semi-spoiler> - because it's towards Slash's past and we all know what happened a few years ago ...
Ozzy means quality in rock music so , why argue anyway :D
3.Beautiful Dangerous (Feat. Fergie)
Great tune with memorable Slash licks
I wonder how would people react to a Black Eyed Peas disbanding cuz of Fergie joining Velvet Revolver ? Hmm :)
4.Back From Cali (Feat. Myles Kennedy) - Myles is a new-comer for my musical knowledge but a pleasant surprise.
Can't wait to see him live this summer on Slash's tour !
The song is a great sing-along , that's for sure.
5.Promise (Feat. Chris Cornell) - One of the greatest riffs / licks to be featured on the album.
6.By The Sword (Feat. Andrew Stockdale) - Great pick for a first single , from what i've read / heard.
Andrew Stockdale is a great singer anyway !
7.Gotten (Feat. Adam Levine) - Maroon 5-ish sound with Slash's lick & solo around :)
8.Doctor Alibi (Feat. Lemmy Kilmeister) - Motorhead trademark !
Great track , enjoyable solo !
9.Watch This (Feat. Dave Grohl/Duff McKagan) - Pure rock n' roll instrumental track , hope they play it live !
10.I Hold On (Feat. Kid Rock) - Wow , another hit on this album , Kid Rock really shines on this one. Great lyrics too !
11.Nothing To Say (Feat. M Shadows) - Another new musical personality for my taste,but again a nice surprise ! Power-track with a metal feel ! Solo and licks are over-the-top !
12.Starlight (Feat. Myles Kennedy) - Totally enjoyable , hard to describe !
13.Saint Is A Sinner Too (Feat. Rocco DeLuca) - 2nd best song on this album ... totally different from the other tunes on the album , which is cool and points out Slash's musical range
Catchy lyrics too !
14.We're All Gonna Die (Feat. Iggy Pop) - Like Iggy said in the Album Trailer - it's rock song !
Headbanging vibe :)
I'll also mention these , because they are worth-mentioning !
Extra-tracks (to be found on the UK release)
1.Sahara (Feat.Koshi Inaba) - Incredible track,this should have been on the album,worldwide-ish, not UK-only :)
This is the english version of the song,although that doesn't really matter,the vibe of the song & the licks/riffs are incredible
Solo - no comment :)
2.Baby Can't Drive (Feat. Alice Cooper & Nicole Scherzinger)
Pleasant surprise by Alice & Nicole, i don't know the story of the song,why it wasn't included on the initial album as well.
3.Paradise City (Feat. Fergie & Cypress Hill) - i was ultra-happy they Slash did this,because it's a really different version compared to the Appetite version !
The "so far away" riff is missing though , but we can live with that , can't we ?
I know certain people will be bashing this comment , but this version is much better than whatever new Gn'R is out performing live this time around :)
I won't make any tops / pros / cons for this, but it's definitely a record to have & to listen to it as many times as possible.
Make no mistake,this is not Appetite or Snakepit , it would be impossible to get to that - it's got a dozen guest vocalists on it :) - but it's totally R'n'f'Roll and a great album !
