Generally, previous albums could be considered as more balanced in terms of Mike and Chester's
looking at the art.
As ATS shown the expression of artistic vision was imbalance onto Mike's vision.
Someone may be wondering what's wrong with that?
So the evil lies in the fact that those
members of LP, who are closer to Chester's vision of music, may feel
unfulfilled, and if the balance in the team will not return to normal in
the future to go away.
I think both Mike and Chester would be better to stay in LP, because in the clash of their artistic view lies the strength of LP.
In pursuing their solo projects they were deprived of the element of artistic motivation and fallen into a kind of artistic laziness because
both Mike in the FM and Chester in the DBS act masters roles and
none of their teams did not dare say a word of criticism.
Unfortunately, for Chester's vocal potential, the lack of a strong opponent
made the album of DBS, is not as good as could be with
such a voice potential.
And here you see a perfectly well-known regularity of the lack of strong competition causes depletion in quality. And it is also the reason, both Axl and Slash solo albums are not as interesting as Guns N' Roses.
On Chester and Mike mutual discussionsand gain themselves and the whole LP.
