THE AGE; MAY 8, 1998
MELBOURNE, VICTORIA, AUSTRALIA

Letting go has been a long process for Izzy Stradlin. He may have quit Guns N' Roses after falling out with co-founder Axl Rose, but he's back and he's brought former band-mate Duff McKagan along for the ride. Stradlin's second solo release stands between rock, blues, and early-'90s soft metal. It takes a more conventional approach than the 1992 release Izzy Stradlin and the Ju Ju Hounds and, as a result, is less endearing. The head-banging version of Chuck Berry's Memphis is a little intense, but the likes of Bleedin is mercifully generous with the mandolin and vocal harmonies. As the obligatory man-in-the-desert shot on the cover might hint, it is yee-haw music. But it isn't bad.
