Had high expectations of Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators
second album, Aplocalyptic Love. This a lot due to Myles Kennedy's involvement both as a singer and a songwriter. But don’t think it really lived up to what I hoped for; this is because there were too few songs that stuck out. However, I really like its modern hard rock style and Myles sings obviously really, really good, which makes is worth having. This latest album from these gentlemen is, however, a shake-up and keeps the level that one would expect. And it should then also be mentioned that we got 17 songs and over 77 minutes of music, which means that you cannot be anything else than impressed with the result. Tracks like "Automatic Overdrive", "Wicked Stone" takes them into classical ground as well as the heavy "Beneath The Savage Sun" with some Gene Simmons aura in the intro. Although I think that the band is at its best in harder songs, so I really appreciate the slightly quieter tracks that create a whole. Is thinking of "Battleground" and the Alice In Chains fragrant "The Unholy" both of which show Myles and Slash talent when it comes melodies and lyrics.
Must also provide additional credits to Michael "Elvis" Baskette who produced the record in a perfect way. The sound and airy, edgy and without a lot of technical toppings (which you can hear at least), which gives it a both modern and classic sound at the same time. Check up!
