Song is ok, nothing special.
That said, I find that most Slash songs are generally growers.
Last album was his best IMO

I loved the first album, but as probably my least fave tracks on it were the ones fronted by Kennedy, it is no surprise that the follow ups have no excited me.

At least he does not seem to aping Axl on this song, something he has done way too much on other releases.

Funny thing is, if I heard this without knowing who it is, at points it kinda reminds me of Tyketto, but then the vocals on the verses give away that it is not.

For me Kennedy took time to come to terms with.
Never really saw him as mimicking Axl, but he has a unique voice for sure.

I thought every album so far has had at least a few decent tracks on it. Having said that, I listened to World on Fire the least and Apocalyptic Love the most out of the three. This might not have anything to do with song quality but only that I was more receptive to this style back then

But will need to check out World on Fire again to see how it's held up

Kennedy seems like a good dude and all, but his voice is like fingernails on a chalkboard to me.  Music reminds me of Blind Melon... and I HATED Blind Melon.

"Hate" is actually sugar-coating my feeling toward the entire Grunge movement of the early '90's.  What a paltry time that was for me (musically).

Blind Melon?  Surprising comparison, I'm not hearing much grunge influence.   Blind Melon and Slash do have a bit of a connection though, their singer provided backup vocals on Use Your Illusion and was in the video for "Don't Cry"

I didn't listen to the new track... I've really only heard Kennedy when he did a Guitar Center acoustical thing with Slash a while back, and all I could think of was Shannon Hoon and his stupid bumblebee outfit :)

Haha, the bumblebee outfit!  When I read your post earlier, the only song by Blind Melon that I could even think of was the one with the girl with the glasses wearing that costume.
