  1. Yeah man, I am still waiting with baited breath for Oh My God (with Silkworms snare sample +3db) to show up
  2. The "New Album" Thread

    Were you around these parts when Chinese Democracy came out? I distinctly remember it being a fairly positive and exciting time around here and everyone was stoked GNR finally came out with something. There will always be *some* negative comments since everyone will have different opinions on things I don't think the same people who are bitching about new music will be all 100% the same people complaining about the content - I can tell you that I am bitching about no new music because I simply want new music to enjoy from my favorite band and would welcome the opportunity to finally be positive and happy with where GNR is
  3. The "New Album" Thread

    I am sure those statements would be made by a couple folks, however I think that the amount of constructive and positive posting about our favorite band finally releasing something would far outweigh any of those types of comments - and should not deter GNR from actually being productive of course
  4. The "New Album" Thread

    I personally think it is their best album since Binaural! I suppose not every album will be liked by every fan. I hear some amazingly different sonic stuff they are trying out on this album and it is fantastic to me Lemme know what you think! The artwork looks amazing blown up on the vinyl sleeves like that, tempted to get the vinyl from the Ten Club shop
  5. The "New Album" Thread

    I think Pearl Jam deserves a ton of kudos. Not only is their new album really good, but they were one of the first major acts to postpone their tour and they caught a ton of shit for it the day of the announcement from a ton of COVID skeptics. But I think they deserve props for taking the initiative to see the writing on the wall and act accordingly right then and there
  6. That quote is both not surprising in the least that Ted Nugent would say something like that, and also another quote in a long line of Nugent quotes as to why I don't take that guy seriously at all What a nutjob
  7. Although I think a remaster won't change those specific things neccesarily - a remaster is just taking the mixdown master tape and applying new processes such as EQ and compression (and hopefully never too much of it lol hello there Loudness Wars). Kind of like how with the Appetite remaster there were slight changes due to added compression but with certain frequencies emphasized such as slightly boosted bottom end, the changes are all more on the subtle, and broad stroke side of things. It can make some differences, however I think that a lot of the things you mentioned such as Izzy's guitar or the actual sound of the drums on Locomotive, a remix would be the solution for that. Taking the multitracks of the drums and applying different procceses on them, bumping up Izzy's guitar, changing up the stereo image a bit, etc. I personally always liked the sound of the Illusions however I can see how others wouldn't for sure. I really enjoy the Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab remasters of the Illusions that have a slightly more dynamic range and a smooth crankable sound.
  8. The "New Album" Thread

    There has been 3 pages of discussion in this topic the past 3 days, if GNR are not gonna release new music might as well have a pointed topic we can reflect upon it lol
  9. Dizzy Reed continues to release more music than Axl

    2020 and you still use "millennial snowflakes" as a genuine attempt to insult lmao come on Nobody is saying they are owed anything - but if you think it isn't silly that a band that hints at new material as much as GNR has only netted 1 album of original material since when most of those "millennial snowflakes" were born, well needless to say I think that pretty much says it all
  10. Top 10 GNR Guitar Solos

    Ha I saw this reply on the "posts" part of the main page not seeing the post you replied too and immediately guessed you were talking about the fact that Nightrain has a fade out lol. I always turn the volume up as loud as it can go while it fades out so I can hear as much of it as I possibly can
  11. The "New Album" Thread

    I think the "they don't owe us anything" still applies with what you said though. Not that I am happy they aren't releasing anything, however the only thing we as fans/customers are truly owed is the physical or digital copy of the album we trade money for during a transaction, or a show from a ticket purchase transaction, etc. GNR unfortunately is allowed to be as unproductive as they want to be, even if we don't like it - I know I don't but what can you do
  12. The "New Album" Thread

    That's true, apparently this is a band that is only capable of releasing material after every 15 years minimum lol I have long accepted that unfortunate fact
  13. The "New Album" Thread

    At this point I consider GNR to be an entity celebrating the greatness that they accomplished back in the day, until they do something to prove otherwise
  14. Is this Gary Busey? If so, glad to see you are hanging in there man - huge fan!
  15. Norah Jones doesn't need cred, she is great in her own right! I am loving her rendition of Patience, thought it was a really classy rendition I could easily imagine Slash laying down some really clean-style blues lines over some of her recent material
