Album review: Apocalyptic Love

Slash continues to plough on that thought arrived unbidden two tracks into the former Guns 'N' Roses' guitarist's second studio album. Turning away from Velvet Revolver this time around, he has his other touring partners on board, the ones he refers to as Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators. The result is, straight off the blocks with the opening title track, a whole lot of old-fashioned rock ‘n’ roll.

Riffs occupy centre stage, giving Slash a number of opportunities to show off (One Last Thrill, Halo, Anastasia), and Mr Kennedy’s vocals get their share of the spotlight too, especially on You’re A Lie. The sad thing is how eminently forgettable it all is, less than a half hour after the last note fades away.
