Listen to the whole album 3 times. Still can't like any of those songs. There are worse, but these ones are nothing special.

the more I hear it, the more that's not the case.

“To the ones who are negative and want to see either myself or the new band fall on their faces, personally I can’t pass up an opportunity to upset so many of them in one quick swoop. I get misty-eyed just thinking about it."

Bad Rain is a fun track. I like Slash guitar, the vocals are like Jack white. Lyrics are a bit unconvincing but there's some awesome parts.

Just listened to Apoc. Love, Halo, and One Last Thrill. Good stuff, but I immediately notice it's the same song structure for all. Riff. Verse. Chorus. Verse. Chorus. Breakdown/Bridge(whatever you call it). Solo. Chorus. Very formatic. I'm sure I'll like the entire album, but it's one of the reason I like Nu-Guns a little bit more than Slash. Axl is doing stuff different, whereas Slash is sticking with what he knows works, not taking a chance.

for me there's just a lack of songs, there awesome guitar parts and solos but it's hard to really find a song. But the looseness Slash has on it is great. There's no big deep meanings it just a bunch of riffs and solos. In some ways when Myles tries to sing about something it sounds worse cos the music is so don't give a shit. it should be all songs about drinking and strippers.

It's a good point, I like the album, but there isn't a track I like to skip to or for that matter skip over. It's just solid.


I feel out of touch because I really like Standing in the Sun and not one person mentioned it! Maybe it's because I dated a girl for almost four years that that song could have been written for. *Shrugs*

I was dissapointed by the lack of ballads... "I was all like, oh here we go!!!" when Anastasia started and then all of a sudden it was a rocking.

One Last Thrill = VR v2.0?

Anyone?

For the love of all that is holy, DeadSlash is not negative in any way toward Slash.  It is a handle I used when the band was still together.  It's a reference to the skull with a top hat design from the Illusions albums. I like Slash and Axl.

That's what I thought this seems like a stepping stone for Myles join VR.

Far and Away is pretty good ballad but it's like they couldn't be arsed.

Anastasia didn't really have the dynamics that I thought it would.

There's parts where vocals sound like Plant or Cornel, loads guitar parts.

No More Heroes might be good live.

Not for Me...
One of the 3 really good songs on the album.

The rest is VERY generic and boring, sadly.

Standing in the sun is kinda cool, but Myles really kinda sucks on it.

Need to check this out, I enjoyed the 1st album. Really liked all the different styles and artists he was working with...hope that 'magic' isn't lost :unsure:

The Post cornered him and asked how late he generally stays out. Rose just smirked. ďAs long as it takes".
