Fantastic. Should be reissued.

Great album. Really punchy, more balls to the wall than "It's 5 O'Clock Somewhere." Singer's voice isn't the best but still very good. The first track, Been There Lately, is so strong. Stripped down, fast, heavy, leaves nothing desired. It's excellent.
The songwriting for the album as a whole is excellent. There are great songs like Mean Bone, Landslide, Ain't Life Grand, and many more. Much stronger than It's 5 O'Clock Somewhere.
The singer is fab. Takes a little getting used to, but he's so powerful. It suits the music so well.
I love the composition. Just little bits like the piano in Been There Lately, and the blues wind band in Ain't Life Grand augment the guitar playing without eclipsing it, unlike Guns 'n' Roses' Chinese Democracy.
Super effort by Slash and Snakepit. Too bad it didn't last.
