Bit of a mixed bag
on 19 June 2010
Which is what actually makes it appealing, there is probably something for everyone here. Yes it's no vintage G n R u-like nor is it the last word in rock classics, and it's probably not the kind of epitaph that Slash himself would choose to be remembered by; nonetheless there are some good tunes in here. Like most I like Andrew Stockdale's contribution, but I don't like Fergie. I was impressed by Myles Kennedy at download this year, and I like both of his songs. They are indeed a bit more MOR than you might be comfortable with but if you are adult enough rock is a big church.
I think it's a worthwhile purchase if you are a fan of any of the artists, as each one lends his or own her style to a Slash-esque foundation. And that's the rub, its a Slash-esque album rather than a full on 'proper' album. I like it, if only because Slash in half hearted commercial mode is still one hell of a guitar player, irrespective of where they are played in the song.
