4.0 out of 5 stars SLASH - APOCALYPTIC LOVE 21 May 2012
By nin/ja77 TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
When Slash released his debut solo album in 2010 it featured a wide and diverse selection of artists from the like of Ozzy to Fergie, Lemmy to Adam Levine as well as spots for Nicole Scherzinger, it was an album that worked well and featured a standout track in "By The Sword" sung by Andrew Stockdale of Wolfmother. The album also featured two songs by Alter Bridge frontman Myles Kennedy who would also go on to front Slash's group for his world tour during which he would sing songs from Slash's former bands as well as tracks from the album, so every night Kennedy would be filling the shoes of Axl Rose, Scott Weiland, Andrew Stockdale, Ian Astbury and Chris Cornell it was a job that he performed admiringly as his voice handled all the different ranges. So for Slash's second album Kennedy performs all the tracks, it seems like a natural progression and a working relationship has been built up by the two men.

The album itself "Apocalyptic Love" is a rock fuelled funk filled adrenaline rush of old school rock and roll and it's clear from the outset that the album has one intention and that's to rock, it's an album full of great riffs such as the opening song the title track "Apocalyptic Love" with its funk driven riff that has Myles Kennedy using his full vocal range to drive the song on and features a great sing along chorus. "One Last Thrill" starts out with a scream in the background before Kennedy delivers the lyrics at 100 miles rate; it's a great piece of punk rock. It shows Kennedy has many different styles of vocals. It's also topped off by a trademark Slash solo. There's some great drumming and bass playing from Brent Fitz and Todd kerns on the song "Standing In The Sun", both Fitz and Kerns are part of slash's live band.

5.0 out of 5 stars An essential Album for all fans of great music 22 May 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I knew the collaboration of Slash with Myles Kennedy would result in an incredible album (just listen to 'Back from Cali' and 'Starlight' from Slash's last CD) But the end result is so far beyond expectations.
The riffs, the huge chorus's, beautiful lyrics and that voice of Myles's serve up one hell of a listening experience.
All the incredients for the perfect album are present. The rythmn section in Brent Fitz and Todd Kerns provide the perfect backbone.
Slash's guitar genius was made for Myles's vocal beauty.

This isn't just for Slash / Alter Bridge fans, its for fans of great rock music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure Slash 6 Oct 2012
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
Imagine if Guns N' Roses had continued in its original form: this album is essentially that. Myles Kennedy is a very capable if more refined alternative to Axl Rose. It's almost impossible to avoid making reference to or comparison with Guns N' Roses album Appetite for Destruction because this seems to be such a natural successor, and for hard rock fans at least, surely praise does not come much higher than that. It may not quite have the raw 'wow' factor but it is a more developed and polished product. There is no doubt that Slash is on absolutely top form here - you only have to listen to 'Anastasia' to see that - what an amazing performance! Only time will tell if this becomes one of the great rock albums. It certainly deserves success.

I have to admit that I haven't been the biggest fan of Slash since he departed from Guns 'n' Roses. His talent is indisputable, but the vehicles for it (Slash's Snakepit, Velvet Revolver) haven't been anything other than merely above average at best. His collaborations album was hit and miss, but showed a lot of promise, so I gave this new album a go. Quite simply, I believe that Apocalyptic Love is the best thing that Slash has put his name to since departing from Guns 'n' Roses nearly two decades ago. Having a superb singer like Alter Bridge's Myles Kennedy on board is a massive bonus as Slash has someone who can really give his work the vocal power it deserves. My favourite track, by far, is Anastasia. It's a real show stopper which, even on the first preview of the album, demands your immediate attention and appreciation. Other highlights include No More Heroes, We Will Roam and Far and Away, but the sum of this album is greater than its individual parts - it's quite simply a top class, good old-fashioned rock album. Nothing more, nothing less. Enjoy it for what it is.

3.0 out of 5 stars Flashy Stuff but lacks something 7 Jun 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Don't get me wrong this is good music,but from a Man of Slash's calibre I expect something else.
I cannot quite put my finger on what is missing,The guitar playing is spectacular as you would expect the singing is great but it just does not go together for some reason.
The songs lack identity and it seems more of a showcase for individual performances than as a Masterpiece of an album that it should have been.

Others have rightly been comparing and contrasting this record to the previous Slash and Friends which was, of course, an entertaining collaboration with many of Slash's heroes, all of whom brought something of themselves to the mix, and the result was a kaleidoscope of hard rock melodies and lyrical styles.

On the other hand, this one sticks to a tried and tested formula and is one axe wielding, gun toting, mean hombre of a record. It's how 21st century rock'n'roll should sound: it doesn't need any further reinventions thanks. Derivative in places? Of course. Why not? I hear Guns'n'Roses, Aerosmith and The Cult in these songs. Slash has always been the sort of artist who makes no bones about his influences, especially his personal guitar heroes. And yet, when I listen to the sheer variety of riffs on this record, there are still new twists and turns that you simply don't hear much from Slash's peers in the hard rock metal sphere.

And Myles Kennedy sounds like he means it here. His voice is punkier and it's got a snarl with attitude behind it, quite different from his Alterbridge material which often has a much more earnest and reflective post grunge vibe about it. But then hanging around with Slash on the road for three years would do that to a man.

There are very few fillers on the album, though the ballads are, in my view, probably the weakest tracks. Nonetheless, there are potential classics galore which will no doubt feature in Slash's live set for years: the title track, "One Last Thrill" (if you like Velvet Revolver's albums you'll love this), "Anastasia" (it stomps like mid 80s Aerosmith and the guitar solo is a speed trip), "We Will Roam" (probably the strongest chorus on the album), "Bad Rain" (you can tell Slash listens to AC/DC) and "Shots Fired" (a rock'n'roll metal gallop).

Classic metal release of the year so far!
