Let me start by saying that this album is one of the best, if not THE best, discs i´ve heard in the past year or two. I acquired an advanced copy of this disc, and uploaded it on my ipod, thinking i´d listen to it on a train ride and like a few of the songs. What i quickly discovered was that this disc is in face a masterpiece. I don´t know if the band considers this to be a concept album, but regardless, every track is worth listening to. The harmonies, arrangements, and different styles experimented with throughout the spread of the CD are absolutely awe-inspiring. To start a disc with Queen caliber/style harmonies and then drop into a rock fused, hook filled song works far better than i ever imagined it to be. I´m going to stop rambling about this album, because i think i might never stop. Highlights for me include "Beside You", "Masterpiece Theater III" and "Good To You", along with every other track on this fantastic album. BUY THIS FEB. 24 .
Myles Kennedy was asked by Slash to audition as lead singer of Velvet Revolver, but he declined the offer. Two years later, he was called up by Creed guitarist Mark Tremonti asking to join a new band he was forming since Creed had recently broken up due to personal issues with singer Scott Stapp.
