I'd say it's better than Libertad though. I really like "Big Machine", "Slither", and "Fall to Pieces".
Any fans of GN'R, STP, and any good rock band should be looking out to buy this album, totally recommended..
But overall it has a little somethign for everyone's taste and mood.
However, with the added presence of Dave Kushner, the band are able to create their own sound, rather than sounding...
There are some of the intros sweet child o mine-ish, and some are very GN'R-ish, but again, it's a modern...
If tickets are available to see this band, snap them up.
Some of the best songs are "Slither," "Headspace," "Do It For The Kids" and "Big Machine." Though, overall, I think...
I love "Illegal I Song" and "Dirty Little Thing." I love that they're more then a super group.
Some of the better songs on this album include "Set Me Free," "Slither," and the brilliant acoustic song "You Got...
Not even Spaghetti Incident. You can't even compare it to a STP record either.
I personally was tired of hearing simplistic punk riffs on the radio, I did miss the heavy, in your face...
Best songs are "Do It For The Kids," "Big Machine," "Illegal I Song," "Fall To Pieces," "Slither" and "Loving The...
I listen to this album attempting to forget "Welcome To The Jungle" or "Sweet Child O' Mine," but it just...
It was always going to have aspects of their former bands, but it's all been mixed up, added to, and...
If you are looking for superb riffs with mesmorising solos then this album will not dissapoint you in the slightest...
No nu-metal emo s--t, just the real thing.
I wouldn't, and I would never reccomend that anyone else do.
The simple conclusion is that it doesn't compare soundwise or in style.
Every song sounds so much a like and nothing really stands out.
Scott, Slash, Duff, Matt and Dave are all really talented people and great musicians.
It's only flaw I can thnk of is the sometimes confusing, even bad lyrics.
If I lost this CD I would buy 2 more, for insurance.
Slash could have been so much better, and the GN'R/STP mix could have been so much less irritating.
It isn't a death metal CD but it a very good hard rock album.
Velvet Revolver really breaks through the barriers that all the other bands seem to be caught on.
About half the album are good songs while they other half are songs that will never be remembered..
I can't state my favourite song because they are all amazing.
You have to listen to this from start to end to appreciate the excellent songwriting on display.
It is unique from what has been shown this year and completly kills Jet and other poser bands.
Scott Weiland has no creative energy left, and I also think that he's opted for an "alternative lifestyle".
Everything about it rocks, you could compare it Appetite for Destruction but that's far too easy a comparison.
This album really is something fresh to todays music industry, yet most of it weve heard before in all the...
It's my favorite album and I can lisen too all the songs.
What you will get is rock veterans making brilliant music, simply because they can.
Do get the best overview of the album I would recommend: Fall To Pieces, Slither and You Got No Right...
To compare it to anything that comes out now days would be a crime.
I love that they didn't try to make music like the other bands they were in.
2. That's not to mean it's not as good.
The album beated, in opion, The Darkness, Los Lonley Boys, The Trews, and Jet.
The best songs are definitly Spectacle, Fall To Pieces, Sucker Train Blues, and Slither (damn, that song is so catchy).
I like every song on the album except Do It For the Kids and Illegal I Song.
But with someone like Slash in your line-up, you wouldn't expect anything less.
But this album has brought a new meaning to the word "Rock!" I loved slither since I saw the video...
I'd say it's the 'Appetite' of it's era.
It's worth every single penny of my money that I spent.
This band is ready to pick up where other bands left off a decade ago.
But that is my opinion. I hate nothing about it, and love everything about it.
This album is worth buying in all 3 flavors (by flavors I mean colors).
Really brings back memories of good music. I cant stand this rap and Nu metal era.
I'm actually just 17 and I wasn't around during GN'R's hayday but when I started listening to them a few...
Better than the majority of the 60+ albums I listen to frequently.
Not Nu-metal, not punk, not pop-punk, not EMO.
Rock the way we wanted it, no more Drop D every song, only power chord screaming nu metal, Velvet Revolver...
Every song sticks in your head, makes you wanna listen to it again and again.
If you're expecting a GNR sequel, you won't get it.
This albums got it all, 2 slow songs, and another 11 hard rockin songs.
