    • It wouldn't have worked from a critical perspective but it would have helped commercially, which is why I think the whole rumor of a 2006 reunion was real - but only from the business end... I don't believe that while he was so close to finishing his dream project, Axl would contemplate reuniting the old band and diminishing the credibility of his new band. I believe he had people telling him he could use a minimal reunion to give his new album attention, relevance and possibly, credibility. That's the only way it would make sense; that somebody got their foot in the door to at least purpose using a reunion as a platform to promote Chinese Democracy.  
    • Just a reminder as I've had to delete the last few posts in this thread. Going along with the forum's new policy on direct download links, we can't have people requesting links either. If you're unfamiliar with the new forum policy on download links, you can familiarize yourself with it in this thread:  
    • I was thinking and I guess this follows a pattern.... you know how Izzy also wrote UTLH from some story he heard on the radio about a woman killing her husband so he had to do something about that, tried to "fix It  by reversing the roles and serve some sort of social justice for that poor man... Well, it looks to me he's doing the same here.... the real story being about a male submitting to a dominatrix he turns it into the opposite and adds the judgemental parts to it because in the end, he thinks those practices and people involved are all insane.
    • Chinese Democracy is Axl's final outburst about his past relationships (Including band members). It's a journey through 15 years of not knowing what to do with his feelings, of being lost, and finally finding the path to release that hurt to the public, in the form of an album.  The fact that various people contributed to the album, doesn't change the fact that the album is about Axl. Even though other band members might identify themselves with what is written on the songs. That is why I think this is a solo album. In any case I think the songs that capture Axl's spirit are "Street of Dreams", "This I Love", "Madagascar" and "There was a Time"
