Other than a few promising moments with Bash & Pop and Perfect, Tommy Stinson hasn't done a lot of memorable work since the Replacements imploded. Evidently, from the time he joined Axl Rose in Guns N' Roses six years ago, he's been ducking into studios to record songs for a solo album whenever an idea hit him, and the scattershot results of Village Gorilla Head support that theory. There's a bit of crummy triphop here, a Dylan-style ballad there, and when all else fails - surprise - a Replacements rave-up. It's all bleary-eyed pastiche shabbily pasted together with Stinson's rock 'n' roll attitude. It might've worked if he were still a snot-nosed teen, but by now you'd expect more than mischievous diddling.
