Velvet Revolver <= STP + GNR

Enjoying both Stone Temple Pilots and Guns N Roses, I had kind of been looking forward to Velvet Revolver's album Contraband. It is OK, but nothing spectacular. There is certainly promise there, but somehow I have my doubts about Scott Weiland's ability to hold it together through a tour, let alone for a second album.

Some of the songs sound disturbingly like other STP songs, and at least one's guitar riff sounds an AWFUL lot like Sweet Child O' Mine's opening. What can you expect, I guess.

Certainly not the worst album that I had been looking forward to.
