I've been treating this as just another rumor so far but it is looking more and more like it's going to happen. It will be interesting to see who else plays with them.

Never got the hype. Before MTV, they were going nowhere. The guy's voice grates on me like a rusty hinge on a gate swinging back and forth on the breeze. I really can't understand these people, who swear up and down these guys are/were "The Greatest Band Ever". For me, the publicity and hype never even came close to what I was hearing. A couple of albums, latched onto by mainstream media, followed by a break-up feud, and years of speculation. Brace yourself for a virtual shitstorm of more rabid, over-hyped publicity. Personally, I could not care any less than I already don't give a fleeting fart about anything they do.

From 87-93 they probably were the greatest band in the world.

Depends on what you mean by 'greatest,' and 'world.' And also 'from 87-93.'

Obviously a reunion would and will be a massive cash cow.

 

Appetite was a great record no doubt about that, Axle could NEVER sing live worth a shit, 100% studio work only. But people glomed onto it for one reason or another and the rest is history.

 

As for a reunion I could care less as I won's see the show. However if they got ALL original members back, yes I mean Adler and Stradlin then that wold be cool.

Fixed.

 

I like the band just fine. They're like any popular band. On one hand, yes, they are over-rated heavily by a lot of people. But I always see the other side of the spectrum too. And the haters are often just as bad as the over-hypers.

 

No, I don't think they were the greatest band ever by any means, but they were a good solid band. An abundance of fillers, but a very strong catalogue of excellent songs to counter that.

 

As for a reunion, what are we actually talking about? A full reunion of the original, or even 'Illusion' line-up; or just Slash and Axl? If I'm being honest, it doesn't really interest me in reality. If they got back together and released a studio album, then sure, that'd be very interesting. But I feel like it'd be a titanic cause to get them together for a reunion gig... let alone trying to get them together long enough to write/record a single song, let alone a full album. Axl isn't going to suddenly start writing quick albums after almost three decades of doing the opposite.

 

So yeah, on paper it's a cool idea but the reality of it is a bit of a buzzkill.

 

And yeah, poor Axl looks shocking. :(

Supposed to be Axl Rose, Slash, Duff McKagan, and Matt Sorum (instead of Steven Adler). No word on if Izzy Stradlin would be a part of the reunion.

That's a solid reunion. Like I said, if they could make it into the studio with that line-up, I'd be very interested in the result. But I can't honestly see it happening.

 

They'd have to be together for about 4 years minimum to get a studio album recorded, and how likely is that??

I'm sure Axl has a few songs hanging around.

 

Yeah, I was thinking that, but I'd assume the other guys would want some proper input if this thing goes ahead.

At least that line-up is closer to the 'classic' band that most people want to see (unlike the 'Axl And Blokes' tribute band that's been doing the rounds) ... I still wouldn't pay the undoubtedly ridiculous ticket price to see them play an aircraft hangar somewhere, but I'd be interested to see if they could pull off a new album ...

    • This is out and it's very nice. Interesting how far removed it is from a song like 'Midnight in Miami,' but it's still very good. I do enjoy.  Heart Of Gold     -    Beautiful Dangerous 1    .    To The Blue 2    .    Headache 3    .    Patient 4    .    Bright Lights 5    .    There's A Difference Between 6    .    Leave Just Yet 7    .    Something That Lasts Forever 8    .    September Sunburn 9    .    Backseat Daydream 10    .    Hometime 11    .    Bad Habit 12    .    Co-Dependent 13    .    And Something That Never Ends 14    .    Time Spent Driving This'd be my favourite tune off the new album.   
    • These guys have a new album, with some very nice surprises aboard.  Hollywood Undead     -    Hotel Kalifornia 1    .    CHAOS 2    .    World War Me 3    .    Ruin My Life 4    .    Hourglass 5    .    Go To War 6    .    Alone At The Top 7    .    Wild In These Streets 8    .    Dangerous 9    .    Lion Eyes 10    .    Trap God 11    .    Happy When I Die 12    .    Reclaim 13    .    City Of The Dead 14    .    Alright            
    • Very, very safe. To be totally honest, I didn't find a keeper on here, but it's a solid album, all right on the verge of something a bit better. Nice, safe AOR. 
    • You sure? I could be wrong but I thought Ronnie's only contribution to this project, from the start, had been his vocals? Either way, the new album's more of the same. I don't dislike any of it, and I don't furiously love any of it either. It's all pretty nice. 'Riot' is my favourite on the album half because it's a nice ballad but also because I expected it to be some plodding songs about riots but instead it was a trick shot. Nice. 
    • Of Virtue     -    Sinner 1    .    Hypocrite 2    .    Sinner 3    .    Cold Blooded 4    .    Echoes Quick, pretty harsh but a cool EP for those who don't mind a scream or two-    
    • Another one I've mentioned before. Bummed it's only an EP (with two of the same songs on it) but Outsider Heart have released a delicious EP- Outsider Heart     -    Entertainment 1    .    Entertainment 2    .    Anyone But You 3    .    MONSTER 4    .    Crop Circles 5    .    Like The Rest 6    .    Crop Circles (feat. Brody) Sure I posted it before, but I love this song-      
    • Anybody out there loving the new album? So good. Pale Waves     -    Unwanted 1    .    Lies 2    .    Unwanted 3    .    The Hard Way 4    .    Jealousy 5    .    Alone 6    .    Clean 7    .    Without You 8    .    Only Problem 9    .    You're So Vain 10    .    Reasons To Live 11    .    Numb 12    .    Act My Age 13    .    So Sick (Of Missing You)      
    • Yeah, this really surprised me about the album. Weakest songs are the ones with her, but otherwise, I have to say I was really pleasantly surprised with this album. I am not sure I heard the debut and didn't know what to expect with this one, but I really enjoyed it.  'Need A Lil' White Lie' is such a killer opener. Elsewhere, I admit it's pretty one-dimensional, but as I've said in the past about things like this, it's a pretty good dimension.  'A Dream To Be Lost In Time' is a bit bland, but otherwise, from track 4 onwards I really enjoy the whole thing. 
    • I think I posted these guys before. It's not ground breaking, but they have an album out and it's pretty cool. Some really cool musical passages on it.   Sever     -    This Should Have Been a Better Place 1    .    '91 2    .    Red Room 3    .    Animal 4    .    Cold World 5    .    Empty Promises (feat. Christoph Wieczorek of Annisokay) 6    .    Closer 7    .    The Disease 8    .    My Dream, My Agony 9    .    Noise in the Trees 10    .    Do You Remember Me?
    • These guys are one of those mystery bands to me. I think they're fine, just can't figure out why people fall over themselves for them as I think they're average to below average in the overall scheme of things. BUT, that is why I am a strong advocate for to eaching their owning. I'm glad people dig, I just don't really understand why. Anyway, new album is basically what these guys do. Solid, eclectic and half decent... but not great. I did think 'Beat of Your Heart' was a nice ballad. Drum sound interesting too. Took me genuinely 6-7 songs to figure out what I thought of it - if I liked it or not. I think I settled on the fact it's cool. I think. Anyway, I assume fans will adore this for whatever reasons they loved the other ones. Me, I think it's adequate, again.
