  1. The "New Album" Thread

    The best thing about the AFD reissue was the 5.1 mix where you can hear Izzy rocking falsetto in random places. The best.
  2. The "New Album" Thread

    I don't know if anything was... people earlier in the thread were saying it was obvious to them that it was. Doesn't seem obvious to me -- remixing nowadays can be pretty dramatic in terms of modernizing recordings. I was just listening to the 2019 remix of Whitesnake's Slide It In -- was recorded almost 40 years ago and sounds very new. My point was it would be weird for them to recorded it in 2018 and not say so -- you would think they'd want to get the credit for doing so and proving they can record quality stuff in the NITL configuration.
  3. The "New Album" Thread

    Why wouldn't they be forthcoming about re-recording SOYL? It sounds excellent and likely much better than many people think NITL-era GNR is capable of -- you'd think they'd want to get credit.
  4. If CD was their sole release GNR would be a Soundcloud band. I hope Slash and Duff can pummel this song into fighting shape.

  6. The "New Album" Thread

    He's very cool and has a sick sound that you can't always appreciate in SMKC neccesarily. He's like a combination of Gilby and Fortus. Slash should have him play more rhythm on the records.
  7. The "New Album" Thread

    I find it really intriguing how Slash kind of earmarks ideas as "GNR" or "SMKC." I'd be so interested to hear riff and melody ideas side by side, hear what he hears as being distinctly GNR.
  8. The "New Album" Thread

    Sucks he didn't actually have his guitar and do the normal "No Guitar Is Safe" experience. The one with Phil Collen from Def Leppard and Steve Lukather are both really great for that. I liked how he was basically asking Slash "So why did you choose Frank Sidoris over me for SMKC?" haha....
  9. Mick Sweda looks (and kind of plays) like Slash’s white little bro.
  10. The "New Album" Thread

    It was at the NAMM guitar show when he debuted his new Gibson’s in late Jan (Edited my original post). The interview (podcast) just came out this weekend. its at approx 21mins in the linked podcast above... small mention but big implications!
  11. The "New Album" Thread

    Slash interview with No Guitar Is Safe podcast around NAMM (late January) but just published today. ”I just had the AFD Les Paul, it just went back into the storage locker, I was doing some Guns stuff in the studio.”
  12. Surgeon general says it’s hazardous to breathe... so buy a GNR mask immediatelyyyyy... ... buy two and get the third one free!!! Come on!!! Take me down to the.... ♫
  13. Yeah the late 70's was their golden writing era... VH1 and 2 were spawned from that. If GNR 2020 were retooling songs from the 80's people would be optimistic, I reckon. This is the equivalent of VH raiding the Gary Cherone era for gems.
  14. I think hardcore fans who don't want new music or say as much are just skeptical about this incarnation the band's capacity to do it right. Obviously on an individual level they're all immensely talented and capable... but the weird state of the GNR corporate entity is getting in the way. Like, are you going to get in there as a unit, find your musical voice as a unit, and record a fucking album? Or are you going to piece it together from disparate scraps, use previously recorded parts and Frankenstein the whole thing and not really commit to it? Dump it in between nostalgia tour legs to tick a box and make new branded laundry bags? Get a producer, book some studio time and record an album. Don't give yourself an out. However it turned out, if it was recorded in that context, I think fans would be extremely charitable about the result and it would be a seriously good moment for the band. Otherwise...
  15. Yeah fair point for sure. But! Lars and James are the original songwriting team, they’re workhouses. It’s been an unbroken chain of releases their whole career, more or less. They film the creative process — you can see how deliberate and exacting it is and still they miss as often as they hit. I say that in no way to denigrate them, I’ll queue up Spit Out The Bone, but to show the disparity between them and GNR 2020. It takes a lot to even float the idea of being the exception to the rule of these late career releases.
