Velvet Revolver
Contraband
(RCA/BMG)
There will be countless comparisons to Guns N’ Roses and Stone Temple Pilots based solely on Velvet Revolver’s lineup (Slash, Duff and Matt Sorum, plus Scott Weiland). And on Contraband you can hear echoes of the past, but tied into a new direction. “Slither,” “Head-space” and “Dirty Little Thing” show Velvet Revolver has the cock-sure swagger and rock-star arrogance of their previous bands. It’s is a lean, gritty rock debut that’ll leave you panting, sweaty and begging for more,
