Classic Rock Magazine said that's one of the best songs Slash has ever done. I've only listened to it twice but I don't hear it.

It reminds me of that Gary Moore song Still Got The Blues.

Does anybody else think that the latter part of The One You Love Is Gone sounds like Battleground?

It takes a few listens. And the latter part is lifted from Battleground. The main verse melody is the same as the 'la la la' part.

Pls God save us from this 

Out of all the SMKC songs in the world, this is definitely one of them.

Everyone who lives in Europe should be interested in an announcement that will be out in few days

Roadrunner emailed me today and said that the backorder email for the autograph was an accident lol. Then this came, made my fucking day. This book really is cool. I probably would have kept it, even if they didn't send the autograph. If this was something GN'R put out it would be $700. Oh an I still like WOF better :lol:20180921_164618.jpg.8d31a8190d409c343716ef91a9b4e8fe.jpg

super stoned right now first time listening to living the dream. so far call of the wild rocks pretty hard. I really like Slash's riff and the energy of the tune. cool opener. Slash's solo sounds nice and mean, but not truly a great one for me.

serve you right - tasty slash solo, the rest of the tune is kinda samey. not one of my favorites so far. Slash's tone in his solo here is hollow sounding, different for him but I dig it. single pick up perhaps? Slash's playing in the very end is so cool, shame it fades out so fast.

My Antidote  - does have the ycbm vibe everyone was talking about. the lyrics are kinda cheesy but Slash's beastly solo here is good to hear. I really like this tune, even if the chorus is myles somewhat recycling the wicked stone melody, I want him to tap into that vibe more but not out right copy it. strong tune.r 

Mind your manners - silly song title imo but it's a nice and fast tune POW! fun Slash solo.

Lost Inside The Girl - good in a more pop emo direction vocal melody but I like it. nice and melodic Slash solo, good to have new ones like this to listen to.

Read Between The lines - very cool tune, so far one of my favorites, cool riff, feels like myles came up with a more thought out vocal lines, good stuff. great guitar work by Slash and Frank.

Slow Grind - enjoyable track for me. I like the vibe of the song Slash's solo especially. 

The one you loved -  too sweet for me. my least favorite track so far, but I love Slash's simple yet effective solo so not true suckage. really great second Slash solo, a lot of feel here.

Drivng Rain - really good riff, very catchy chorus even if I don't like it. Slash's solo here is not bad, pretty cool parts of it I enjoy. on second thought I'm starting to like the chorus. I guess this song is a grower

Sugar Cane - cool snappy Slash riff, not really into what Myles is doing here. cool almost country like Slash solo some paradise city licks. nice.

The great pretender - I like the gary moore note choices in the riff and the chords as well. song kinda slow, not crazy about the vocal melodies. but I love Slash's solos in this song. Seems almost like a homage for Gary. good stuff.

Boulevard of broken hearts - eye of the tiger! cool tune, I like the vibe and a cool melody by myles in the chorus. a great Slash solo, well constructed. I love Slash's guitar outro here.

my final thoughts on living the dream is it's got the usual cool stuff I expect from Slash, a more unified and concise album, the things I Didn't like about Myles are still present but it doesn't bother me anymore, I focus on the tune, and the instrumental anyway.

cool album, even if it doesn't reach for the moon, Slash and the band deliver a strong release imo.

From a long, long, long term Slash fan

Really, it’s just the biggest fluffy, mundane, candyfloss, forgettable pish I’be heard.

Be honest for fuck sake. I want to love this album, I really do. Trust me.

Christ, people are arguing it’s the best SMKandtheC (?) album yet.... so this might be the best of 2 previous albums that are the equivalent of a shot in the heart

Does anyone actually still listen to Apocalyptic Love on this forum? Let alone planet earth excl. mygnrforum? Nope

World on Fire? (which actually I thought was a brilliant album) - double nope

These albums are essentially disposable  smokescreens so the guys can go on the road and make some dolla. Other than that- it’s impressive studio shit with no lasting value whatsoever.

Dont believe me? Go listen to Slash 2010 and everything after it.

Its nonsense

so don't listen to it bro. I think there are a bunch of cool tunes, riffs, and Slash solos here. now they've really got a really defined sound, like it or hate it. a lot of us like it.
