5.0 out of 5 stars Unbelieveably good., 26 May 2004

This review is from: Contraband [Digipak] (Audio CD)
Ok, well i wasn't too hopeful when I found out Scott Willand was going to be the singer of this band, because i was never a stone temple pilots (or grunge generally) fan, but the combination of him and the ex Guns N Roses boys Slash, Duff and Matt, and a new guitarist on the scene, Slash's childhood friend Dave Kushner is amazing. Here is my review of each song that has been heard sofar ion the radio and internet:
1 suckertrain blues - Superfast and super heavy. It sounds a little overproduced but is really origional sounding, great lyrics.
2 Do it for the kids - despite the geekish title, this is a real rocker with a lot of balls and melodic chorus, GNR fans will love it.
3 Big machine - if you like its so easy and mr brownstone you will love this. Some of the most origional lyrics i have ever heard here but i don't think amazon would let me repeat them here. Another all out rocker with a great B section.
4 illegal 1. Straight out rocker, doesn't have the Epic structure of the last 3 which are very complex songs. Great riff which reminds me a lot of led zepplins immigrant song.
5 spectacle - Really aggressive but catchy punk/alt rock sonf
6 Fall to pices - This could be a number 1 single. Structured like 'don't cry' and with a guitar riff as dominant as the one from sweet child o mine this is some of slash's best melodic work ever.
7 - headspace, another straight out rocker, probably my least favourite song on the album but its still pretty good.
8 - Superhuman - this song is just messed up, in the best way, i have never heard anything like it, its as ifall the best bits of nirvana and megadeth have been mashed together in a single song. The main riff sounds like sweet child o mine on acid, and 2 minutes into the song you realise there have been at least 6 different sections to the song already. This song really needs to be heard to be believed.
9 - set me free - great anthem with a great riff, the first song we heard as it was on the Hulk soundtrack.
10 - You gott no right - Amazing epic ballad somewhere between David Bowie, Oasis and with a really great solo, probably best solo on the album for melody.
11 - Slither, the first single, straight out grung song sounds like early STP or Alice in chains
12Dirty little thing - the only song we haven't heard yet, hope its good.
13Loving the alien (sometimes) - this has nothing to do with the david bowie song of the same name, it is an origional, 70's sounding prog rock ballad, great guitar riff and solo.
14 - bodies, the bonus track, a cover of the sex pistols song, which says it all. Cool song but not in the same class as the new ones.
