New GNR...

So, after MANY years of working on it, Axl finally released Chinese Democracy. The title track was ok, but I am really liking the new release, Better, as well as another track I heard on Sirius right after the release. Anyone pick up the new disc?

Not the same as what made them popular or what you would expect after the wait, but I still like it. Without Slash and the rest of the boys it really isn't GNR, I know, but what if this was just some new band named Joe and the Pajama Fish? Would you have a different take on it then? Sort of like Metallica's newest release. Too many people wanted it to be a re-issue of an old album they love and hate if it is anything else.

And thanks Basswipe, I know it didn't just come out. I had the song stuck in my head last night and wanted to see waht others thought.

And when Redcrbbr gets tired, I'll take a few swings while he gets his energy back.


I heard the first 2 singles and thought it was crap. The songwriting is just sucky and the music is pretty much what you could get at any club with a $3 cover charge and $4 pitchers of beer. Axl is officially a washed up has been.

Conservatism is not about leaving people behind. Conservatism is about empowering people to catch up, to give them tools at their disposal that make it possible for them to access all the hope, all the promise, all the opportunity that America offers. - Marco Rubio

HA!HA! Can I watch???


Seriously I was never really a huge fan of theirs. Maybe a song here or there but thats about it. All in all I think the radio stations maybe the reason? Thats ALL they play.....even to this day. But to each their own, I know not everyone likes the same stuff!

No not the same I agree & great point.
Maybe if the song Chinese democracy was Pajama fish party's first song I (we all)might of liked it more vs the well awaited & anticipated newer GNR without half it's members.
I think it was more of a let down,I wanted (like everyone eles)that old school heavy grunge things change but that was a little to much some of the addin in sounds just didn't flow with it seemed like it was an after thought and put in to make it new style.

Metalica
Metalica on the other hand has been a large let down,there Black album grew on me after a few seasons.......Back in 1991!Man IM dating myself,but since then Garage days Inc. which was all remakes of there inspirational artice there's some good stuff on that on but Load & Re-load.......They were just like there Titles A freakin load!
And then there was Saint anger?WTF was that inspired by Prisoners?Sorry couldn't even buy that one!
I have faith that there latest album will be better.
Sorry no offence to any one but Bring Back there old school stuff the one's with real heavy rifs.Kinda like Rage there self titled album was awesome A mix of rap anti gov't heavy bass and some acid mixed into revolutionary music.
I don't mean to rant & rave but I can't find any old school bands with heavy substance un less I look underground.
