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.

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:

    • His music videos are always good: either very silly, or very sexy. So I've got this queued up on the PC. Looking forward to it. 
    • New single "The Animal" dropped today, not bad at all:    
    • I dig the new tune!  Honestly, might be my favorite yet from these guys. I like that this kind of gets away from the  Bon Jovi Country vibe they sometimes had on the debut.  For me, this has a fresh, big sound to it.   Will have the new one on my radar.
    • 3rd single... Love It   
    • New video for 'Dance'.    
    • Vandenberg - Sin Chicago - The Chicago Story (2 CD) Megadeth - So Far, So Good, So What? (Expanded) The Allman Betts Band - Down to the River Mike Oldfield - Five Miles Out (Remaster) Buckingham & McVie - S/T Michael Hutchence - S/T Roxy Music - Stranded (Remaster) Echo & the Bunnymen - Reverberation  Echo & the Bunnymen - Evergreen (Expanded)
    • After releasing two albums with AOR/Melodic Rock band Streets, ”1st” (1983) and ”Crimes In Mind” (1985), lead singer and keyboardist Steve Walsh returned to Kansas, to revive the band along with original members Phil Ehart (drums) and Rich Williams (Guitar). Furthermore, the lineup was completed by the addition of bassist Billy Greer (from Streets) and young, promising, former Dixie Dregs guitar man Steve Morse, who also contributed with composing skills and backing vocals. Eventually, the group’s ”Power” album was released in November of 1986, rather much to the vintage Kansas and Prog Rock purists dismissal, as I recall it. The heavier sound/direction and absence of violinist Robby Steinhardt, songwriter/keyboardist/guitarist Kerry Livgren and bassist Dave Hope were all contributing factors to the disapproval, it seems. However, mentioned ”Power” should perhaps instead be judged on its own merits, as it is what it is. Put out in a time when commercial Melodic Hardrock was very much in fashion, with FM rock radio and MTV as ever the important ingredients of daily life. In the end, the album actually landed at a respectable No. 35 on the Billboard chart, while the single/ballad ”All I Wanted” eventually rose to an even more impressive No. 19.

    • They have a real knack for writing (and producing!) songs that could be featured in '80s coming of age films and I mean that in the most complimentary way possible. Really putting the retro in retrowave
