Time to take a sick pill.
Duff McKagan is off course best know for his
involvement in Guns 'n' Roses and Velvet Revolver. Duff McKagan put Loaded
together back in 1998 and they released two albums before they vanished, only to
return in 2008 with the 'Wasted Heart'-EP. Duff, who sings and plays guitars in
Loaded, has hand picked each band member for his project.
Loaded plays west coast style hard rock with a
punk rock attitude and balls - sounds familiar doesn't it - the basics are the
same as they were in Duff's previous involvements, and he stays true to his
beliefs and roots with 'Sick', and even adds a small potion alternative rock to
The ingredients are well-known and the result
is predictable, after all the genre does not have a wide span, but as long as
the music is catchy, has balls and sticks that's all that matters to me. And
'Sick' is a well-written party rock album that rocks, is edgy and is filled with
hard pounding energetic rock anthems.
Not groundbreaking in any way, just honest hard
rock with the heart in the right place.
