  1. I think, if you were to compare Appetite and TSI in terms of fidelity, its got to do with the soundstage, and dynamic range of the mix. It just feels off to me, I honestly think the drums are too loud, over power slash and Izzy's playing. Sort of muddies the entire mix for me. If you just do A and B tests with TSI, UYI feels inferior.
  2. Ah, very true, didn't even consider that. A total remix could possibly fix the issues people have with the drums and guitars. I think the illusions were mixed for CD's and the loudness war in mind; hopefully a remix could better layout the vision the band had for the songs, if you listen to the live versions, there seems to be a disconnect in my opinion. Although, this could be from the trouble of the production, not necessarily the mix.
  3. I think the production value is the weakest of all the albums of GN'Rs catalogue. The guitars don't sound as crisp to me, Izzy is a bit muted, drums don't have much punch; think of the first note of Rocket Queen, then compare to the intro for Locomotive. A lot of UYI songs could benefit from a remaster. It doesn't sound terrible, but when we only 4 full length albums from the band-i count lies and Live like a suicide separately as EPs, it feel frustrating that the production value took a step back from Appetite
  4. Seriously this. UYI desperately needs a remaster, along with a slew of 5 or 6 live shows with it. I think we have or have had most of the spare demos and outtakes from the sessions-so that doesn't interest me much. But, proshots ❤️❤️❤️😁😁😁 also, if it still exists, the Perfect Crime documentary would be awesome
  5. The "New Album" Thread

    Yeah, that probably sounds right. Duff sounds a little muted in the mix, to me at least, but Izzy sounds about right. god help the man that would suggest to Fortus to try and rerecord Izzy 😂
  6. The "New Album" Thread

    I don't doubt that part of the instrumentals must be new or some cut we've never heard, but Axl doesn't have that mid range in his voice anymore. It's just not there, listen to the way he sings the words "fun" and "one" in the first verse. Definitely young Axl. Doesn't sound like rock the rock axl
  7. The "New Album" Thread

    Man something I wish this album could have is the combination of Axl's, Izzy's, and Duff's vocals. Listening to It's So Easy, Dust N' Bones, Patience, live all those tracks mesh well with their voices. damn shame we won't get it
  8. The "New Album" Thread

    What do you think they re-recorded?
  9. When did Axl lose his musical and performing drive?

    Cool, I'm across the border in SC
  10. When did Axl lose his musical and performing drive?

    I would suggest that Axl doesn't just get over things or give up, otherwise the NITL would've been a lot shorter, money or not (if you think otherwise, think about how long it took Axl to "forgive" Slash, the NITL tour and possible succeeding albums would've made huuuuuuge amounts of money in 2006-10, with everyone still in their prime). I just think the guy is near 60. It's hard to be the same Axl anymore. Izzy might be the only guy who hasn't changed that much, from 1991 on he's probably been close to the same guy. Also is your name in reference to Durham, NC? Cool place if it is
  11. Best Live Recordings per era?

    Nothing official, the closest you could get is the digital lossless audio from the Laserdisc versions of the show; which is better than the lossy 192kbps AAC audio from the DVD's. Doesn't make a huuuuuge difference though. I'm not sure what the sound engineer did to the audio, but he reallly really compressed the audio to death.

    To be fair, the more important point should be Axl should've taken care of his voice over the years. He's lost the mid range of his voice from bad technique. Screaming, like the Indiana '91 show, doesn't do well for the voice

    That would be wild. Love that song
  14. Top 10 GNR Guitar Solos

    Considering GNR has probably 50 something original songs, makes it kind of tough to pick something not "obvious"
  15. Umm so there's 2 sources, a badly mixed radio broadcast with announcers interrupting and the audio from original video broadcast, where Duff is waaaayy to loud in the mix. Not sure what you mean, if you compare it to the other 1992 soundboards it's easily the worst (and I guess the Venezuela one as well)
