This is hard as I a lot of the GNR side projects, and some would consider CD as side project relative to the old band's catalogue even though it was released under the classic name.

Aside from CD which I'm a big fan of....

I like the First Snakepit record a lot - those songs would be straight up AFD2 if Axl had been involved. The guitar sounds are classic early slash.

Pretty fond of contraband too as although weiland can be repetitive and I missed Axl, but some of those songs are very GNR in their own way - such as 'Suckertrain Blues'.

Some mygner "experts " have nerves to say Pitman is a bad musician :facepalm.

First snakepit half killer/half filler. LOved Believe In Me back when it was released. Played the shit out of that album.  Need to listen to Neurotic Outsiders again.

Of course Bucket projects are way up on my list.

That's what I posted. tongue

Sextapes is also underrated although not as good as Lusk.

This. Although like James, I have a soft spot for Believe in Me as well. And if you consider what all of those albums have in common, it is that they sound the closest to classic AFD/UYI GNR.

I don't care at all for Lusk, the Replacements, any of Bumblefoot's solo stuff or any of Izzy's work. I do like some of the buckethead material, but there's so much chaff that it's hard to find the wheat. I love things like Nottingham Lace, Soothsayer, Jordan and Siege Engine though, the 'hits' if you will.

I listened to Tommy's "One Man Mutiny" record last night.

I got an easy listening, drive and cruise vibe from it. A heavy Stones influence throughout. It was certainly competently done but it didn't grab me.

I also listened to Slash's Snakepit "It's Five O'Clock Somewhere". I found it to be awful.

It's a polarising record because a lot of people are off put by Eric Dover's vocals and Lyrics.

Have a listen to those guitar parts though. With Axl songs like Dime Store Rock, Soma City Ward and others would have been very much like GNR's rockers.

I will maybe listen to it again a long time from now but I really didn't like it.

Both the vocals and guitars are assaulting you and not in a good way.

I didn't care for the style. Felt like Slash doing Metallica, Skynyrd, and Alice In Chains.
