The new song is pretty cool...I'm digging the layered Axl vocals...

It is pretty crazy that this album is actually coming out now. I'm looking forward to it. Glad to see that I.R.S. made the track list. I've had a demo of that song for years and it kicks ass. I just heard the title track (you can stream it at Pitchfork and a bunch of other places) and it definitely brings the rawk. And there's no mistaking that voice, either. It's just a shame what the man has done to his image. Botox much? Ahhhh, I still love him. It's Axl fuckin Rose. His badassity in the 80's makes up for it.

I can envision a couple hours before midnight on Nov 24th, Axl having a last minute change of heart..."no wait, its not quite finished yet aye aye aye aye" and running out to Best Buys everywhere with a big box truck and taking back cases of the album.

The scary thing is I won't be surprised if it actually happens!

I was a huge GNR fan in high school. Guns n Roses/Metallica was the first concert my brother and I went to without adult supervision. I think "Appetite" still ranks as one of the greatest rock albums of all time. I don't know what to make of this. Is it really happening? Are we really going to get a new, full-length, studio album from Guns n Roses? After 16 years of waiting, I'm still a little doubtful. I guess I won't believe it until I have the CD in my hands.

He should have the decency to not use the GnR name. This is NOT the band that put out Appetite and the Use Your Illusions. No Slash. No Izzy. No Duff. No GnR.

It should be an Axl solo record.

Which is exactly the reason he had the rest of the band sign the name over to him back in the late 90's...because he knows an 'Axl Rose' album wouldn't have the selling power of a 'Guns n' Roses' album...

I agree in principle, but I think this album will be pretty good, based on the demos I've heard...

I can't say if the album has leaked or anything (has it?) and I don't know if anyone holds any respect for the opinions of Rolling Stone magazine but they've given a pretty glowing, 4 star review for Chinese Democracy...

Chinese Democracy : Guns N' Roses : Review : Rolling Stone

I don't know about you guys but I'm actually pretty damn excited to hear this thing.

Whoa.

Axl is 46 already?? He's like almost as old as the members of U2. That's ridiculous.


I trust David Fricke's opinion. He's been around for a while and has good taste.

I'll admit it - that review has piqued my interest.

The album is going to be laughably bad and overstuffed, like a Meatloaf record on steroids, but I still can't wait to hear it.

Heard the lead single yesterday. Dang. It kinda sounded like watered down Metallica to me, not all that excited anymore.

But that's just me

I heard the title track a couple of weeks ago. I liked it. I'm looking forward to the new album. I don't know how good it will be, but it will definitely be historical.
