4.0 out of 5 stars Easily the most under-hyped band around.... 3 July 2007
Format:Audio CD
If I wasn't a massive fan of Guns N' Roses, and Slash in particular, I would probably have never had the chance to hear this bands two albums.

I've never heard one of their songs played on the radio, and other than the excellent "Slither" (the first single from the first album), their videos are rarely seen on the various satellite television music channels.

This is a travesty, as this, and their previous album "Contraband," are both fine examples of what Rock music is supposed to be, with none of the identical nonsense that all of the "Rock" bands that are in the charts today put out.

The most notable songs from the album are, in my opinion, the first single, "She Builds Quick Machines," "Let It Roll," which is a short but to the point introduction to the bands brilliance, "The Last Fight," "American Man," and "Gravedancer," which has an excellent solo from Slash.

Forget what Axl Rose is doing at the moment with the ever delayed "Chinese Democracy," as this is the closest thing you'll get to seeing Guns N' Roses back at their best.

4.0 out of 5 stars Really like it, more rounded sound. 8 July 2007
Format:Audio CD
Overall i really like this album, theres not as many really top-notch songs as there is in contraband, but there are no poor ones either. Have to say slash is the reason im a guitarist, and is my guitar god, so i might be biased but heres a breakdown of all the songs. 0-2: is crap, 3-4: Ok, 5-6: Like it, 7-8: Really like it, 9-10: Love it!

1) Let it Roll - Great rocking start to the album, thought the solo could be ever so slightly better though, but im picky :) - 9/10
2) She Mine - Nice solid chunky riff - 6/10
3) Get out the door - 5/10
4) She Builds Quick Machines - Thought this tune was a bit light when i first heard it, now its my favourite tune on the album! Awesome solo! 10/10
5) The Last Fight - Think they were trying to have their 'fall to pieces' track here, its good but not great. 6/10
6) Pills Demons & etc - Cool funky wah-wah riffage. Cool solo, but rhythm section needs to be tad louder there 7/10
7) American Man - This along with mary mary is probably most mainstream stuff here 6/10
8) Mary Mary - See above 5/10
9) Just Sixteen - 50's esque rock, with not so 50's lyrics lol. Really cool 10/10
10) Can't get it out of my head - Quite chilled riff with top wah solo. 7/10
11) For a brother - Solid if unremarkable - 5/10
12) Spay - Probably the closest sound to contraband, cool unexpected slide guitar. 8/10
13) Gravedancer - Love this tune, strongest singing on entire album i think. Beautiful, up there with Loving the Alien. 10/10
14) Hidden track - Cool little country ditty 6/10
15) Psycho Killer - A cover track, weakest in my opinion, Still ok though 4/10.

I think theres a definate maturing to all the musicians on this album, a more textured sound, although i have some issues with the production.

5.0 out of 5 stars velvet Revolver.....brilliant! 2 July 2007
By Sarah
Format:Audio CD
As a huge fan of Velvet Revolver I knew that this album was going to be a must have in my collection. Little did I know how good it was going to be. You can really hear the transition of VR becoming more established with this record. I really recomend this to any rock fan.

Format:Audio CD
I awaited in the utmost anticipation for Velvet Revolvers follow up album to contraband.

I picked up Contraband on its day of release (having always been a fan of Guns'N'Roses), to find out what I read about the latter days of GNR to be true. The fued between Axl and Slash really did compromise Slash's talent. the guitar riffs were truly stunning, and showed Slash in a completely different light in my opinion.

So when I read that Libertad was soon to be released, I was truly excited about listening to their new material.

the moment I put the album on and listened to the first 2 minutes of the first track, I knew this was going to be a fantastic follow up to Contraband.

There is not a single track on this album that I dislike and skip (which is rare on mosts bands albums nowadays). There is hard, heavy tracks and guitar riffs but also slower tracks such as 'The Last Fight' that help break the album up whilst still letting flow smoothly. This is reminiscent of the GNR albums with tracks such as 'Sweet Child O Mine' and 'November Rain' etc.

Upon first listening to Libertad, Scott Weilands voice will surprise and amaze you. Its almost as if Velvet Revolver have got a new lead singer. This just shows that no matter how good an album Contraband is, Weiland was still battling his drug addiction, which obviously affected his voice somewhat. Weilands voice on this album is now softer and more melodic, although he can still sing the hard rock tracks when demanded of him.

It is great to see an album of this calibre from some of the best musicians from the last 20 years, and I can only hope and look forward to a third album.

3.0 out of 5 stars Velvet Revolver with the intensity turned down 5 July 2012
Format:Audio CD
Scott Weiland's post-Purple-era recordings seem to inevitably mean his drug-weakened, slinky voice slithering (pun intended) around the mix, to usually good effect. However, in Libertad, the suitability of Scott Weiland in the heavy, 70's influenced section that is Slash, Duff McKagan, Matt Sorum and Dave Kushner is sometimes called into question. In direct contrast to their previous effort Contraband, Velvet Revolver's sound has seemed become tamer. Gone are the huge riff-driven songs like Dirty Little Thing and Slither, replaced by a much heavier emphasis on the vocal melodies. In fact, you would be hard pressed to remember the riffs on Libertad. If anything, Libertad sounds like an approximation of what Stone Temple Pilots would sound like if Dean DeLeo was replaced with Slash. 'She Mine', 'American Man' could have been lifted straight from No. 4, and 'Gravedancer' wouldn't sound out of place in Shangri-La-Dee-Da. Even the single 'She Builds Quick Machines' lacks the aggressive punch that 'Sucker Train Blues' threw at you.

Despite all my criticism, in no way am I suggesting that Libertad is a poor album. It has its moments - 'Just Sixteen' is a phenomenally groovy number with lyrics about forbidden/inappropriate love (although Weiland urges that 'We ain't got nothing to hide'), 'Get Out the Door' is an infectious middle-eastern inflected song that you'll find yourself humming for days, 'The Last Fight' is, in the bands' words 'something that they had never done before', a more somber song filled with reflective lyrics penned by Weiland: 'Time heals all of the burned out bridges filled with nothing but misery...' and a signature chiming hook from Slash (think the chorus line of Fall to Pieces).
