It's rare that I can listen to an album the first time and instantly like it. "Ain't Life Grand" is one of those CDs. I found myself hitting the replay button on the first three songs alone!
The previous reviewers are correct, there is definitly an Aerosmith/Zeppelin groove on the album, but with Slash's unmistakable guitar work, it's got a style all its own. "Been There Lately," "Just Like Anything," and "Shine" are steller songs that stick with you long after you're done listening.
This has got to be one of the best releases of 2000-2001 in the Hard Rock genre. Why radio stations that play Classic Rock aren't picking up on this, I don't know. But why let them decide what you listen to anyway? They're missing out on a good thing -- don't let this happen to you.
If you're tired of manufactured teen pop or tired replayed Classic Rock tracks, give this album a try. It has just about every element you could want. If you're a Guns 'n' Roses fan, this is an example of the great material they could have been putting out had they not fallen apart.
It's good -- really good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rock your ya ya's off 16 Jun 2004
By Leigh
Format:Audio CD
Ok how behind am i... i just got this, and it rocks the house... it totally blew me away.. just good old fashioned low down dirty rock an' rolla!!
I have It's five o'clock somewhere, and that is good... but this is soooo much better.. i just can stop boppin to Been there Lately...
I cant believe that people didn't pick up on this before.. i realise that Velvet Revolver hav just now released Contraband.. Which also kicks serious ass... but i have to say get this..
Just don't try to make any comparisons with GNR... why would you want to... just listen without prejudice (to coin a phrase)

5.0 out of 5 stars Slash is BACK TO HIS BEST 15 Oct 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
It may be five years since the last snakepit album and he may have a new crew with him, but the new Snakepit line-up is awesome. The tracks reveal lead voclist Rod Jacksons great powerful voice, and this is alwaays backed up with some ass-kickin Slash guitar. The album has some fast temo songs, and some slower melodic ones, but the mix is just right.
This would be recommended to any rock fan, especially to those who know what Slash can do with a guitar in his hand!

4.0 out of 5 stars Grab A Les Paul And Lets Rock. 11 Oct 2000
Format:Audio CD
I love this mans style, his attitude and most of all his guitar playing and music. He makes brilliant music with a truly beautiful instrument, a proper Rock n Roll star. In my opinion Slash is God of the guitar, and yet again has produced a good time Rock n Roll record. The album is full of cool guitar riffs, listen to every track because it shows Slash can still Rock and it justs out lines the pure talent of the man. My only complaint is Slash don't leave it so long between albums, I've waited five long years for this, but it has proved to be well worth the wait.
If you apperciate good Rock n Roll you will love this album. Steps fans need not apply, for this is a proper album. So pour yourself another JD and Coke, sit back and enjoy. I know you will.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ain't Life Grand - Slash is Back! 9 Oct 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is one of Slash's best records yet , including GNR.Packed with great songs , superb solos and lots of attitude; Ain't Life Grand is an awesome rock album.The Snakepit also give us a taste of blues with the title track.This album is by far,a better record than the previous Snakepit title "It's Five o' Clock Somewhere".The vocals of Rod Jackson are superb and I much prefer them to that of Eric Dover.My favourite tracks are the powerful "Been There Lately" and "Just Like Anything" as well as the more relaxed, romantic touch of "Back in the Moment".Beautiful! Jackson's vocals come to light here.The only dissapointing track is "The Alien" where Jackson opts for more of a grunting voice through the verses.Other than that, this is a quality album.Any fan of rock, or more importantly, any fan of Slash should not miss this.GET IT!

5.0 out of 5 stars An aamzing album 9 Oct 2000
Format:Audio CD
Aint Life Grand is an album graced with some classic rock songs. Slash seems to have wrote this album with no constraints or pressure allowing him to explore every aspect of his playing from hard rock songs like 'Been There Lately' to dark powerful rock songs like 'Serial Killer'. Rods singing is awesome, way better than Axl's or Eric Dovers. This album is the path that Guns N Roses should have taken after 'Incident'. When GnR finally release there new album it has a lot of work to do to even compare to this album. I recommend you go out and buy it cause its HOT !

5.0 out of 5 stars Now this is what im talking about! 4 Mar 2005
Format:Audio CD
Slash has always been one of my idols and when i bought this album i was bit pretencious about how it may have turned out because the 1st Snakepit album was less than impressive!
But i was amazed when i heard this album because of it's originality and it has a very good front man as the 1st Snakepit album had Eric Dover who in my opinion was not a very good singer! This album had a more bluesyer aproach to rock than GN'R does, it has a very original sound and has lost that GN'R sound (which is a good thing for a new band coz you can't be original and sound like another band) GN'R have always been one of my favourite bands and i'd hate to see someone try and recreate the GN'R phenomenon which i think the 1st album tried to do!
But Slash has learnt from his mistakes and this Snakepit album is amazing! it has very fast and original solo's, creative riffs and licks!
The album has contrast of fast rockers, ballads and Heavy Rockers! My favourite Solo is from "Life's Sweet Drug" which is extremely fast its almost as if its not being done by human fingers! "Back To Moment" didn't really appeal to me first of all but it grew on me and is now one of my fabourite Rock Ballads of all time (up there with Sweet Child O'Mine).
It just oozes out originality, and potential if this album had been carried on with and,this Snakepit created more and got better known i think they would have done very well!
Rod Jackson particualrly impressed me with his powerfull voice!And Ryan Roxie is a promising guitarist! This album has the potential to go a long way but seeing as Slash is now in Velvet Revolver i doubt it will be carried on further!
10/10 for this album! BUY IT!

5.0 out of 5 stars Besr since GnR
I reckon this is the best thing Slash has done, excluding GnRs, would have liked him to have kept Slash's Snakepit going

4.0 out of 5 stars Ain't Life Grand
Slash's snakepit was originally meant to be known simply as 'snakepit', but record producers added Slash's name to the front of the band - and it might have been a good thing. Read more

1.0 out of 5 stars totally over-rated by the other reviewers
If you are hoping that Slash's band will recreate some of the G&R majic, think again. This is mediocre, trashy american rock at it's worst. Read more
