The good news: Libertad, Velvet Revolver’s second CD is so chock-full of the tight ‘n’ crunchy pedigreed hard rock that’s in short supply these days, it feels both comfortingly familiar and vaguely exotic. And, frankly, the closest thing to bad news is that the cover of Electric Light Orchestra’s ”Can’t Get It Out of My Head” isn’t anywhere near as good as VR’s freshly minted originals. Our advice? Stop pining for a new Guns N’ Roses release, break out your air guitars, and bask in the glory of Libertad.
