Guns 'N' Roses - Chinese Democracy


T-BONE

Recommended Posts

A few weeks ago, some poor sap got bamboozled for leaking 9 tracks off the supposedly upcoming Chinese Democracy CD by Guns 'N' Roses.

 

Leaker Gets Schmakered

 

I've heard these leaked tracks and their quality is MUCH better than the bootlegged and poor quality live recordings floating around the net. I'm sure plenty of people here have heard some or all of those tracks.

 

Any Opinions on the tracks?

 

Better

Chinese Democracy

IRS

Madagascar

Riyadh and The Bedouins

This I Love

If The World (Would End Today)

The Blues

There Was A Time

 

Another track I've heard that wasn't part of the leaked 9 was:

 

Catcher In The Rye

Personally....

 

This is NOT a Guns N Roses album at all.... This doesn't even compare to Appetite, and is a FAR LEFT TURN from Use Your Illusion, which I also think could have been stuffed into 1 full cd if the filler was cut. Sure I hear Axl's voice, but that's about it. The songs mostly start off slow and are too overproduced. Too many sound samples, too many drum tracks, too many layered vocals, etc....

 

Whoever loaned Axl all that money to actually produce this cd "may" collect it all back just because of the hype this autrocity has generated, and the lemmings will buy it just to see what all the fuss is about, but that still doesn't make it a good cd. :lame:

 

I'm actually "hoping" that the supposedly leaked tracks are just a cover up to keep the buzz going and the leakers in a frenzy, and the REAL CD has all totally different tunes and totally different sound, but I may be using too much imagination :wacko:

I like the songs that leaked but it's really an Axl Rose solo project. How he can call it GNR I don't know. What pains me is when I think of the fact that they should have put out another four or so studio albums in between all the fighting :(

I've refused to listen to any of the leaked tracks and will just wait for the real deal to not spoil it for me.

I do like "Madagascar", which is the only song I've heard(I think). Sure it don't sound like GNR but I'm still buying it when it comes out. I might hate it when I hear it but I want to wait to hear the finished product either way.

I heard these songs about 2 years ago and I was left most unimpressed and with no desire to give them a second listen. If I recall they weren't that bad, but I just couldn't be bothered with them. As noted, it's just an Axl Rose solo project and it just doesn't have a G N' R feel to it at all.

My sentiments exactly. The songs sound OK (nothing spectacular) but they sure as hell don't sound like GNR.

I thought they all pretty much sucked. Why does Axl insist on putting hip/hop beats in rock songs? That SUCKS.

There's an Axl-obsessed guy on the Rock Music message board at IMDB who's counting down the days till this release. He sez he's going to camp out at his local Best Buy the night before so he can be the first one to buy a copy when they open in the morning. Seriously!! :huhsign:

    • As a few others mentioned, musically it isn't too far off from their early material, but the song itself doesn't do much for me unfortunately.   In watching the video it looks like they've got a new drummer.
    • White Lion's Big Game was a massive letdown after Pride but over the years it's grown on me. Cinderella's Heartbreak Station was always way too bluesy and too far removed from the debut but again the quality of the songs sunk in after about 15 years. Spread Eagle's Open To The Public was a bit of a letdown compared to the debut but there's enough strong stuff on it once it gets under your skin to enjoy it. Whitesnake's Slip of the Tongue was another real letdown post 1987. Vai didn't do the songs any favours but again there's a pretty good collection of songs once I got over my disappointment. Anything by Harem Scarem after the debut. Still there best for me by a long shot but heaps of solid albums in the mix. Shotgun Messiahs 3rd industrial album. On first listen wtf but songs are fkn awesome. Same goes with  Wasp's KFD.
    • I've mentioned it before, but I wasn't in love with either Roxx Gang's 'Things you've never done before' or Vain's 'No Respect' when I first heard them. That was in the early stages, though. Vain's in one of my top 10 albums and I love the Roxx Gang one too, so things certainly changed.  Neither are exactly my favourite albums ever, but Cinderella's 'Heartbreak station' and Warrant's 'Ultraphobic' both took a long while for me to come around on. I actually returned the Cinderella CD when I bought that one, and only re-purchased it second hand many years later. Still don't love it, but dislike it less, lol.  To answer Karpetface's question, not to the degree of hatred, but back in the day when all I ever had were CDs and cassettes and once they were bought they were bought, I tended to give everything a lot more chances than I would today, where music consumption is the polar opposite. When I only had dozens, or up until it was a couple of hundred albums... the time to give something a chance again seemed to come around a lot more often than these days, when there's a million songs to choose from all the time. 
    • Now also the official video is out, recorded live in front of  large crowd in California.  This song seems to be a real grower. Was actually a bit disappointed after first 2 listens. But still played it few more times. And then it happened - when I was doing other things, without music, parts of song started playing in my head ;-).   
    • not quite is accordance with the thread, but I saw Vain support Skid Row back in the day and really didn't like them, then years later actually discovered that I liked the debut - it was after Enough Rope was released and I worked backwards. Also I returned the John Kilzer Memory in the Making cd, but came to love the album but still don't own the cd
    • I think I saw them at Cathouse in St.Kilda .  It got re issue 3 years ago with a different cover
    • Have you had a chance to give "Bangalore Choir - On Target" a sping yet?
    • They actually sound great together, despite your reservations towards Floor. 
    • Not at all what I thought a band called "Days of Wine" would sound like; I was expecting something much more laid back. This could be awesome, though.  There have been many days of wine in my life lately. ;}
