  1. This I Love Remix **NO LINKS***

    The remix is better than the album version by a ridiculous margin. I haven't read a lot of the comments in this thread, but would not surprise me if older pure "rawk" fans don't like this version because it is more hip hop/R&B in tone. That's not a criticism of them just an observation, I wouldn't like GNR Dubstep, everybody has their box they are in musically. Vocals are better, the overall structure of the song is better, it's catchier. I get people are attached to Robin's solo, but it would be out of place ham fisted into this version which I think is a funny observation because CD as an album seemed to be Axl trying to hamfist a decade worth of parts and overdubs into each song. This version is more cohesive. This I Love was not an A level GNR song for me. I don't like the lyrics, vocals, or the arrangements all that much, but this remix version saves it for me. It's very good.

  3. Each to their own, but paying $650 for a box of junk is insane. The only justification for that might be if it comes with a certified Axl auto. Temp tattoos and lithographs do not equal a few extra hundred dollars compared to just buying either the LPs or CDs. It's insane that they couldn't get together to record one new song as a bonus track to be the single. What's up with that? Guessing Slash wouldn't put on the school boy outfit.
  4. Why does it matter though if they are just gonna tour the same set list of 20 year old at the time songs. At most, we'd get Slash on CD songs. What are the odds they would actually release an album of original music written by Slash+Axl?
  5. CD would be the same, except Slash would have re-recorded the parts with his "feel" and solos. Think the live versions of the CD songs that Axl makes Slash do now, but in the studio. CD would have sold a lot better due to the hype of the reunion....I mean regrouping. Not that it matters since they sold the album to Best Buy. By now, 10 years later they'd probably have broken up because once the novelty wears down they'd be an arena rock band again and not a stadium group, so they wouldn't have the obscene amounts of money on the line to keep them honest with each other. At the same time, maybe GNR would finally be dead since Axl wouldn't exactly be able to go back to a NU-GNR lineup after opening the pandora's box of having Slash back in the group. I doubt they'd stay together long enough to get another album out after touring CD. Too hard to split the dough. 2006-Reunion tour+Finck leaves the band or doesn't re-join or whatever it was. Huge hype, big stadium shows ala what happened at the beginning of the actual reunion. 2008-CD released w/Slash 2008-2010-Tour CD to diminishing crowds similar to what is happening now at the tail end of this tour but more pronounced. Solid arena shows, but not like the sold out stadiums. 2010-GNR doesn't renew Slash's contract, Axl hides in his mansion while listening to Lana Del Ray songs. 2017-GNR use their final cash cow of reuniting the AFD 5 to tour and play Appetite live.
