  1. Was finally able to give everything (I think?) a listen. All the instrumentals certainly leave more to be desired. I enjoyed them, but it makes me wonder if when Baz said there were three albums worth of material, if all those songs he heard actually had vocals on them. Hearing all these slight variations on the songs that actually made it to CD is neat I guess, but we've been doing this for two decades now. The constant stream of nuances of each of Axl's hired hands is tiresome at this point. At any rate, it was refreshing to finally hear more than just, "All cautions made, every chance was given, no effort spared, to save what we had." Hardschool had a vintage Rumbo Tapes vibe to it, and I can totally see why it was left off of CD--it really wouldn't have fit. Phenomenal song. This is the best batch of leaks we've gotten since the old days, but that's not saying much when comparing it to BITW and Silkworms. Maybe CD was, for the most part, the best of what Axl had to offer? For years so many GNR fans have been holding out that Axl is sitting on stockpiles of absolutely soul crushing songs, and that's probably just not the case. Since there will never be a new album, I'll see y'all in 2024 when Oklahoma with vocals leaks.
  2. Slash: "We will focus on a new GNR album"

    I'm more inclined towards this line of thinking. It's still Axl's decision at the end of the day whether anything will be released. Even if Slash redoes some tracks recorded by Tobias, or Buckethead, or Finck, or Bumblefoot, or Ashba--so what? Axl's had material for the better part of two decades that still hasn't been released, and maybe I'm just not imaginative enough, but I fail to see how Slash providing his input will finally allow those tracks (Checkmate, General, Atlas Shrugged, et cetera ad infinitum) to see the light of day. The same can be said of Duff--does anybody think Axl will release "Going Down" so long as it's Duff on vocals? I'll be more hopeful if at the very least a new song is played in concert, let alone having a single released, album name, release date, etc. But Slash saying what so many have said before doesn't give me much hope.
