Velvet Revolver: Contraband

Sound — 10
I Just bought the CD and it rocks! GNR and STP blend to make the ultimate flavor. Pure rock n roll, the way it should be. Slash is back and hasn't lost anything from the old days. His guitar work is beautiful on all songs and the song that really stands out to me are the ballads: Fall To Pieces and Loving The Alien. Great sound.

Scott Weiland actually does a great job lyrically and vocally. The lyrics are satisfactory and his voice is soothing for the music. I think that it all meshes pretty well, I know Scott Weiland isn't the best singer or writer but this cd has made a better name for him.

Overall Impression — 10
This CD is the best you will find these days. Rock the way we wanted it, no more Drop D every song, only power chord screaming nu metal, Velvet Revolver are here to save the day and hopefully set an example of how to rock for the future of bands. Must buy. Great album.
