Velvet Revolver


Recommended Posts

anyone interested in the spin off of guns-n-roses and STP if you wanna put it that way?

 

 

anyone gonna check out these bad asses back at it again and supposedly stronger than before?

 

 

Axl was a great frontman and possibly one of the best ever but Weiland is possibly my favorite of all time

 

FYI:

 

Scott Weiland - vocals (stone temple pilots)

Slash - guitar (GnR)

Duff McKagan - bass (GnR)

David Kushner - guitar

Matt Sorun - drums (GnR)

 

... ma lord

This is the best album I've heard in a LONGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG time. It blows away all of the STP albums.

 

The beginning of the album is mostly hardrock. I'm really starting to love "Sucker Train Blues." The first rock balled is "Fall to Pieces." The guitar reminds me of "Don't Cry." The song kicks major ass!

 

The guitar intro of "Superman" is awesome.

 

"You Got No Right" is awesome. Starts out with a simple acoustic guitar riff and then proceeds to kick ass. It has a great melody. It blows away any current song on the radio right now, including their first single "Slither," which I also love. It has the classic Slash emotional solo.

 

I think they must have been listening to Pink Floyd before writing "Loving The Alien." This is my favorite song on the album. I read on their site that Weiland said this was the hardest song he has ever had to record emotionally. Some of the lyrics are odd, but you can tell he is talking about his wife (or ex? not sure) when he sings "And I'm moving on."

 

 

 

Anyone that likes Weiland's voice MUST own this album. Some of the songs will take a couple listenings to start to get in to them, particularly the first 5, but they've won me over. It is a damn shame Axl ruined GNR. Slash is close to passing Jimmy Page in my book as the greatest hard rock guitar composer. The album doesn't have a song as good as "November Rain" or "Welcome to the Jungle," but I think I like this CD better than any GNR or STP album as a whole, and that is saying something since I love all the albums by those bands.

Good Band, but Im not a big Scott Weiland fan.

WHAT!?

 

I'd say I like Scott Weiland's album just as much as some of the golden oldie classic STP stuff. If anything Stone Temple Pilots have gone stale and Weiland is moving onto bigger and better things.

 

He's not the greatest singer in the world but he gets the job done.

its surely not the best album ive heard in a while ... its ok ... too much hype

 

i got the album and its good, its a bit harder than guns but I guess thats what happens when times change ... some songs sound just like guns and sometimes Weiland sounds like Axl.

 

its ok ....

What hard rock albums have you heard lately that is better? Audioslave's album was great and I liked Pearl Jam's last album, but I'm not sure if I would consider it is hard rock. I liked Blink's new album (my guilty pleasure) but it is pop rock at best. Metallica's new album was pretty good but nothing great. The last NIN album was the s***, but that was a long time ago. I really can't think of a better album I've heard in a long time.

Velvet Revolver may be the worst band name ever. These guys had their time in the sun, they're basically parodying themselves now. Hey, they're tough, they rock, they're 40 years old.

Question: Do you own the album?

 

Methinks you don't, but this is a messageboard so you'll probably say yes (you know, nobody to verify). I got it yesterday, and to say these guys "had their time in the sun" and basically write off anything they put out BEFORE they put it out is, in a word, sucky.

 

I also like the name shot. Because Guns n' Roses, Stone Temply Pilots, any band with "THE" in their name makes a whole helluva' lotta' sense.

 

Also, what does age have to do anything? So, I take it Eric Clapton sucks now that he's old?

Also, one of the tracks towards the middle of the album Weiland goes REAL deep and sounds JUST like Rob Zombie. I didn't know he had it in 'em.

While I like the DeLeo brothers as well, they've lost it, somewhat. Their last two albums have been filled with sentimental garbage (and that's not what made them famous or their riches). Make what the fans want, an album that rocks.

 

To me, Velvet Revolver has done this.

I agree on the last one. Can't think of the name right now.
