Velvet Revolver (Contraband) 2004





I love Guns N' Roses and Stone Temple Pilots, duh. So obviously I had huge expectations for the latest "Supergroup" with the formation of Velvet Revolver and was very encourage by their first single Slither. It was a no brainer that I would pick up the album.

After listening to it just a couple of times through, I was somewhat underwhelmed by the album as a whole. There were a lot of good songs, but they weren't great. Out of the entire album there were maybe 3 or 4 songs total that just blew me away, while the rest served their purpose. That was back in 2004. So, how does it translate today in 2012? For me, it's better than I originally gave it credit for, but it still doesn't quite get where I want it to be.

The same songs that I loved are still the only ones that I can listen to on a loop. I will say that I haven't listened to Contraband much over the years. I still need to really give the album a serious workout and see if those good songs will ever elevate themselves to being classics.

Fave Songs: Sucker Train Blues, Big Machine, Fall To Pieces, You Got No Right, Slither and Loving The Alien

Velvet Revolver (Libertad) 2007





Libertad is actually the album I was expecting from Velvet Revolver when I got their debut Contraband. Overall Libertad is a much stronger album and it all starts with the writing. The songs themselves are infinitely more infectious and they sound better as well. Even though it doesn't have any of the bigger power ballads from the first album, this is just a great kick ass album that really showcased how strong they were are as a unit and left it opened to just how good and big VR could become. Unfortunately (for the time being) this is their swan song....er, album, now that Scott Weiland is back in STP and Slash is doing his own thing. What does it say about an album when I can say that I like their "country" song Don't Drop That Dime? A lot apparently when I hate country music in general. By the way, the song is a hidden track, so it's not listed on the back cover.

Fave Songs: Every last  m o t h e r f u c k i n '  one of them. The Last Fight gets top billing for me here.
