Velvet Revolver Review

Rock of Ages has a really good review on VR's new CD. I commented over there that I did not plan on purchasing it, but now I will give it a shot. I also did a bit of name-dropping and metioned that went to high school with Matt Sorum. I have an album (i.e. vinyl record!) of the first band he was in (Prophecy), I wonder if I could cash it in on Ebay for some $$$.

So these guys LOOK like rock and roll or what? Gotta love it.

I don't know where I've been but I hadn't heard they had a new album. I'll have to look into it.

it is a pretty damn solid album. One of the best current bands out there, methinks.

Very cool about Matt Sorum. I went to high school with Ben Franklin. Amazing guy, very creative.

I've got Libertad it is a great album, better than their debut, Contraband imho.

The biggest surprise on the album (at least for me) was/is their cover of ELO's Can't Get It Out of My Head. It's not the best song on the album, it's just not one I'd expect them to do. That being said it is pretty damn good.
