Someone on another forum has leaked a cellphone recording of three new songs: Chinese Democracy, If the World and There Was a Time. The songs were recorded at a Best Buy employee preview, which was apparently held a few days ago; If the World is introduced by Andy Gould, who announces the song will be playing during the end credits of the new Ridley Scott thriller, Body of Lies.

The quality of the recordings is pretty poor, but you can hear the songs quite clearly, and many of the instrumentals and general production (and vocals) are different from the earlier demo leaks. Ron Thal has added his work to the tracks, and you can hear a lot of his contributions on the new version of the title track.

According to many people who claim to have attended this event, Andy Gould also said the album would be released on November 25th, exclusively through Best Buy. This info wasn't recorded on the cellphone, but presumably - since numerous people have reported it, and these people had also initially reported the song previews - the information is probably legitimate.

This thread is just for discussion of the songs. Please don't PM me for links.

what proved it to me about it being legit was the next to last line of CD you can hear axl sing "while their arms reach out for your help" instead of the "...something something you're head you can tell.."

I can't believe this is happening. I never imagined it happening like this. :lol: Best Buy employees were telling us this stuff a day ago and nobody believed them because of how many times we've been lied to.

Do you realize that this literally means Chinese Democracy is coming out this year? If Best Buy is having employee previews and announcing a release date of November 25th, it means it's finished.

... So who wants to say it?

These don't count as leaks, they sound like the ass-end of a dolphin quality-wise.

Does get me excited though.

CHINESE DEMOCRACY STARTS NOW! ! !

Doesn't matter what I say, they all made up their minds
I didn't like it then, and I still don't like it now
But I find the strength to smile somehow"

If this were just a tentative announcement, I'd be more hesitant.

The fact that Best Buy is actually previewing songs and telling their employees that it's coming out on November 25th is pretty much definitive. There's really no going back. It means they've signed a deal with them - legally, I really don't think they'd be able to pull back at this point. But yeah, there's still part of me that doesn't want to get too excited. It's Chinese Democracy, after all. Anything can happen.
