The Panic Channel "(ONe)"

What kind of rule is it that every supergroup, regardless of how innovative their original bands are, has to put out the most unoriginal schlock imaginable?

Following in the proud, safe tradition of chart toppers by Audioslave and Velvet Revolver, I present to you the Panic Channel. (ONe) sounds like the birthchild of the filler songs by both previously mentioned bands. Listening to this disc leaves no doubt in your mind as to who the musical mind was in Jane's Addiction.

Among the many, many problems the album has, perhaps the worst is lead vocalist Steve Isaacs. Isaacs, a former MTV VJ, has the vocal intensity of Chad Kroeger's less talented brother. Seeing as how Dave Navarro is a host for the CBS prime time show Rock Star, it's perhaps only fitting that the singer chosen for this band sounds like he came off a reality show.

"Win a chance to front Jane's Addiction, only without the heart, soul, or innovation!"

What a waste of talent.
