    I really like this album simply because of how much energy it has, and how many memorable guitar riffs/solos there are on this album. This album is not as good as either the best GN'R album, nor the best STP album, but a lot of fun to listen to.

    A perpetual guilty pleasure. [Jun 2004, p.107]
  2. Even at its sharpest, Contraband feels secondhand, and much of it is also hobbled by a disconnect between singer and band. [4 June 2004, p.79]

    This is a troubling record. There are some stellar moments, but it's mostly just troubling. [Jul 2004, p.105]
