    Posted: 03 August 2004 at 2:31pm

What are your thoughts? Love or hate?...I'm not the biggest Guns n' Roses fan...I liked the music but I never like axl...I'm a very big STP fan so of course I was thrilled to see Weiland doing a project that seemed to have potential...I wasn't sure what to expect...When Audioslave first came out as Civilian and I heard some rough demo's off the interent i thought it was a great idea...the ratm band with one of my favorite singers of all time (i loved soundgarden)...but I was very disapointed with the cd as a whole...there was really good songs on it don't get me wrong but it seems like the whole album was leftover rage songs with cornell singing his lyrics...I was very impressed with VR's album as it held some stp sound to it but was a very different band than stp or gnr...Velvet REvolver seems more of a band than a sideproject as I think Audioslave failed to do so...This was a great hookup...Lyrics are great and the songs are outstanding...I give Contraband a rating of 9 out of 10

I personally thought the cd was very dissapointing.

Slither and Fall to pieces are the only truely great songs on the cd, and anymore im starting to get sick of slither.

It sounds more STP than Guns and Roses.

I don't mind some of it...

Two of my favourite albums are Purple and Tiny Music, but the other STP albums never did anything for me...

Core was the best album IMO

its some ok stuff...i just dont think that bands that go away and try to make come backs never work... i mean Guns 'N Roses tried it and they failed, big time. only good part of them was Slash. look at Van Halen too, they're trying to make a comeback but who actually likes their new stuff? or the old stuff for that matter.

He fired the entire band.

Slither is a good song, the bits of Contraband that I have heard sounds alright, but I am still disppointed that Weiland broke up STP for VR. Nothing against VR, but STP was one of my favorite bands of the 90s, and they were showing a lot of promise when they released Shangre La De Da
