Myles Kennedy was asked on The Classic Metal Show if Slash's upcoming solo album "Living the Dream" is musically similar the previous effort - 2014's "World on Fire" - to which he replied (via Blabbermouth):

"Yeah, it definitely has those sonic hallmarks, I think, that started to evolve on 'Apocalyptic Love' [2012]. It's 12 songs, and there aren't a lot of epic journeys.

"We had more of the epic side of things on the 'World of Fire' record; these are very concise, and there's an uptempo quality to a lot of the tracks that I think bode well for this band.

"So, yeah, we're excited to put it out there and do some touring on it. It should be fun."

So Living The Dream is a 12 songs album, concise and uptempo songs. I kinda like the more serious and “epic” side of some of WOF songs ..

If it’s an album full of 3 minute tracks with Myles spit-firing the verses then I’ll probably pass lol

Yeah, pretty much. After we heard the solo album, this year, if the album is just going to be full of singles-length tracks that does a throwback to the 80s classic hard rock days, and not stuff like Anastasia, Battleground, or The Unholy, my interest wanes a lot. I do like me at least one big epic track from Myles and we got that with Love Can Only Heal this year. At this point for me, it's like, "wake me up when AB is in the studio" when it comes to Myles' next work.

I really liked World on Fire, Shadow Life, Automatic Overdrive, 30 Years to Life and Too Far Gone, and loved Wicked Stone and Beneath the Savage Sun, so if they can get an album full of that kind of quality I'm very much on board. If there's a similar proportion of filler to that which appeared on WoF, slightly less enthused.

Feel like we need to periodically remind ourselves that the video for Bad Rain exists.

I hadn’t listened to that album in a while. Made a playlist of Myles songs on Spotify not long ago, and didn’t realize how many songs from AL I had to take out of it. :lol

I care more about Wicked Stone and Avalon than I do about Battleground and The Unholy. It's not what they do best, so I don't really care about the lack of epics.
