It certainly appears to be.

 

Whether or not anyone will care has yet to be determined, however.

Is Guns N' Roses' "Chinese Democracy" album coming out on November 23? Yes or no?

 

Doubt it. You have to question Axl's level of creativity too, as surely there comes a point when an albums been sitting on the shelf for so long that the artist has moved-on and just wants to get back in the studio and record something more current....

If it doesn't come out, I daresay that all the folks who are pre-ordering the CD from Best Buy here in the States are gonna be pretty pissed off.

I believe it's more accurate to call it Axel Rose's solo album.

Is this a poll? I vote YES!

 

I think it's a done deal, at this point not even Axl could stop it. If it doesn't, I would expect many parties to be crippled by lawsuits. JMO

Hell the people are already pissed off because it took fifteen years for it to be made! So if it sucks or delayed, people are going to be more and more pissed.

This piece of trash is on my DO NOT BUY list along with Metallica.

 

The Metallica is actually quite good when compared to their last few albums.

If you like classic Thrash then you should like it.

 

As for the GNR, you can check out my first spin review in the first spin impression thread.

Basically if you're looking for Appetite then look elsewhere if you have something of an open mind and don't mind a band bringing in some newer influences then it can be a rewarding listen. I'm not saying it's great but I don't think it's as bad as has been advertised.

Thanks for the heads up Wes, but I can't have my heart broken again by these bands.

Okay, so I'm listening to the AUTHENTIC version right....I am going to say this and everyone can hate on it when they hear it, but this cd is so much better than what I was expecting. A lot of the songs could have been on Illusions....I am going to say that if you liked the Illusions albums, you will like this. There is some modern stuff on here but it stays closer to Illusions. Same over the top production as Illusions and all.

 

I hope everyone gives it a chance because it's very good.

I posted my thoughts in the first spin impressions thread but I agree with the above statement to a point.

One song sounds very similar to "November Rain" another is close to "Breakdown" while another has that same kind of funky sound of "Pretty Tied Up". And I'll say it again if your looking for Appetite then look elsewhere.

Anyone who was expecting Appetite hasn't followed the band since 1987 :) That's not going to happen again...a very special place in time. This is a great follow up cd to the Illusion records though.

I have this sitting in my car ready to go, along with the new Edguy CD. I will probably spin them on the weekend if I drive the three and a half hours up the coast to see my brother, but at the moment I am just not excited enough to spin either yet. :lol: Still trying to sort out what to put on my Ipod from the other discs this year.

 

I will say, though, that I could find an EP's worth of good songs on the two 'Use Your Illusion' discs and not much more... so not sure what I'll think of this one.

    • I try to give albums a proper go before I write them off. Closest I would say would be cats In Space Atlantis. Narnia was SO good that my expectations were extremely high and the album was average on first couple of listens. I let it go for a few months, then came back to it with anopen mind and loved it. Otherwise I can probably pick songs. God Of Thunder I didn't like for many many years and eventually it grew on me.  
    • I left this comment on the promo for "Flames," and I feel like it applies to every song I've heard from this project so far, too:  "Great song, great singer, but I feel like the compression of the production takes away from the quality of the songwriting and puts a damper on Ken's playing."
    • Vain, yes it's one band i never really got into it. Just last week I spent about 30 mins listening to their most popular songs, I dont know what it is but the songs dont do much for me. But i do like one of their songs a lot 'No tears for you', and Whisper is pretty good too. And a few I do like to some degree, that's about it. 
    • Listening to it now (I know I'm late)... Some starter notes, that have no doubt been mentioned here already, but I didn't read through the whole thread: -Production is overdone. I don't know why, when Tobias Lindell had done such a masterful job mixing their last few records, he would do this?  -I've always liked H.E.A.T better with Kenny than with Erik. Not because I think Kenny is a better singer by any stretch (though I do think Kenny's voice is underrated when comparisons of the two inevitably arise), but for the same reason I prefer Danger Danger with Ted Poley to Paul Laine. Kenny's voice is, to me, part of the sound of H.E.A.T and I felt like it was missing the longer Erik was the vocalist with the band, even though 3/4 of the records they did with him were phenomenal. -For the first time, I feel like H.E.A.T doesn't know where they're going. On previous records, there was a distinct direction they were clearly striving for -- the original self-titled album and Freedom Rock were clearly products of their influences and the albums that followed with Erik Gronwall showed the growth and maturity of their playing, songwriting and the budding production skills of Jonah Tee. But I can't figure out if Force Majeure is meant to be a step forward or a step back. I wouldn't go so far as to say that any of the songs are bad, but there's not a single banger present here, as far as I'm concerned, which I was not expecting. -I also feel like this is the first time you can really hear Eric Rivers's absence since he left the band after Tearing Down the Walls. Into the Great Unknown being an anomaly altogether guitar wise and H.E.A.T II being a phenomenal return to the stage for Dave Dalone, Force Majeure is the first time I've really thought to myself, "Man, there could really be another guitar track here," which might be why they felt the need to compensate with the over-the-top production?   All in all, is it bad? No, I wouldn't go that far. But as far as H.E.A.T albums go, it falls extremely short of the ridiculously high standard they've set for themselves over the course of their career.   But hey, it's better than Into the Great Unknown.
    • Yeah, a few times. Unfortunately, it didn't live up to all the hype. 
    • Ok the title was clickbait, first dislike and then later like would be more accurate but hey, you clicked on the topic, so it worked! 😬
    • 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.
