You have to look at supergroups a certain way…
Velvet Revolver will never be G-N-R, or STP.
Audioslave will never be RATM or Soundgarden…
Perfect Circle will never be Tool… Etc.
They are a new band with old guys from different groups. You have to listen to them with an open mind. Personally, these supergroups will never meet the mark that was set by their previous bands, but they do have good things to offer.
On a similar note, does anyone remember the grunge supergroup “Mad Season?” They had only one album, but I liked it a lot, still listen to it on occasion.
I love supergroups.

Yellow Matter Custard - a Beatles cover band that only played one show at BB King’s. I was there, they were great.
If you like Prog rock or the Beatles, this is an album to pick up. Paul Gilbert’s Solo in “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” is, as drummer Mike Portnoy said that night: Absolutely Fucking Amazing!
