Editors’ Notes

Is it possible that Scott Weiland can hold together what Axl Rose could not? For their second album, Velvet Revolver sound very much like a band that understands how to work together. As lead singer, Weiland brings an authoritative spark, while Guns n' Roses alumni, guitarist Slash, bassist Duff McKagan and drummer Matt Sorum push forth the punkish ends of their roots, pummeling through the riffage to deliver steamrolling, ragged-on-the-edges hard rock (“Let It Roll,” “American Man”). Producer Brendan O’Brien keeps things tight and focused. Velvet Revolver sound like a veteran act effortlessly spitting out the hard rock playbook with strong new maneuvers. An ELO cover of “Can’t Get It Out of My Head” hints at the pop attributes that the band incorporate into their own writing. “Mary Mary” gives Slash a few spots to sport his leadwork, but it’s back to Weiland for the churning chorus before the four and a half minutes are up. 

Customer Reviews

stone temple..Revolver?

Good album, totally different beast from Contraband. Best way I can say it is this feels like a Stone Temple Pilots album, a deeper more emotional experience so some songs will be hit & miss but well worth a listen. Not the sleaze rock style of contraband, but due to personal tragitys facing various band members one can forgive them for switching focus a little. However stand out rocking tracks for me were "She Mine" "Get Out the Door" & probably the best "She Builds Quick Machines", none of the balleds really did it for me like Fall to Peices did from Contraband. worth the wait? not quite but still a great recording in its own right.

prepare to be rocked

awesome. If you are looking for rocking riffs, wailing solos and more hooks than a fishing convention, this is for you. slash and co are back on form with an extensive tour under their belts and it shows in the music. every instrument - bass included! - is used to its full potential, creating an album full of synergies and moments that make you go "..that was cool." It is quite different from contraband, but this is not a bad thing. it marks a point in the evolution of the bands sound as Libertad goes from the rocking "Let it Roll" (with one of those riffs that is so amazingly simple you can't believe it hasn't been written before) to the more thoughtful "the Last Fight" and to a rather delicious cover of "Can't get it out of my head". this record goes places contraband didn't dare to, and it makes it an all the more richer listening experience. Must download: Let it roll, she mine, american man, cant get it out and spay. This is the sound of the top hard rock band around at the top of their game. enjoy!

VR O'Brienised

This is an excellent rock (not hard rock) album. It's full of great songs with everything you'd expect of a band of this calibre - great riffs, great musicianship, great choruses - hence the five star rating. What interests me about this disc is the Brendan O'Brien influence, which is VERY strong, almost to the point where he has turned Velvet Revolver into another band - namely, Stone Temple Pilots, Scott Weiland's original band. Gone is the hard rock edge that has typified Slash's previous works, with the only song on this album strongly resembling what we are used to being the excellent single. What it is replaced with is a grungier Pearl Jam/STP sound well known to fans of these bands, and no surprise since O'Brien produced Pearl Jam too. This is still a must-buy for hard rock/rock fans, but be prepared for something a bit different. It is satisfying in many ways, although I would have preferred the distortion sound to have been less fuzz and more trademark Slash rather than trademark O'Brien.

Velvet Revolver began with a spring 2002 jam session that reunited ex-Guns N' Roses bandmates Slash (guitar), Duff McKagan (bass), and Matt Sorum (drums) on-stage. With the discovery that their chemistry was still going strong, the trio began pushing around some new music and auditioning singers for what became known as "the Project." Early entries included ex-Buckcherry shouter Josh Todd and Neurotica's Kelly Shaefer; both became acquainted with the cutting room floor. By early 2003, the existence...
