What does a clas­sic rock gui­tarist do if they don’t have a rea­son­able or half­way re­spectable “rock” voice? They do what Slash (for­merly of Guns N’ Roses, just in case you’ve ar­rived late) had to do: en­list the ser­vices of a much ad­mired rock singer in the form of Myles Kennedy. Us­ing Kennedy as some­thing of a vo­cal fo­cal point may be a smart move, but it can never (and I mean never) dis­guise the fact that the star of the show is, and will al­ways be, Slash. So what we have here is lit­tle more than a sur­round­sound showcase for gui­tar so­los, and lots of them. Which means that by song No 4 ( Wicked Stone – and there are 13 tracks to go), you know the drill: bog-stan­dard riffs and vo­cals will al­ways (and I mean al­ways) be pushed aside for gui­tar so­los. Lots of them.
