  1. TSI is a lot more aggressive sounding with the production. Not as much reverb and the bass drum hits harder.
  2. The "New Album" Thread

    You asked who?
  3. The "New Album" Thread

    That would be cool. Despite all the problems with Goldstein and Niven, I think if they were involved now then they would've pushed for new music. TB doesn't seem to care.
  4. The "New Album" Thread

    I already posted earlier why I think it's rerecorded. According to them officially there's no rerecording on Live Era either but we know that's not true. Ultimately yeah, it's just speculation, but then clues are a little too strong here (for me anyway).
  5. The "New Album" Thread

    No, we're not talking about this again.
  6. The "New Album" Thread

    You're both right in a way, but I think they could've still released a single or something along the way. I mean they rerecorded and released soyl, they could've done Hard Skool or something and released that (before it all leaked). Or the seeker or something.
  7. The "New Album" Thread

    Yeah I agree, that part is worth it, but then they could've just done one reunion/farewell tour instead of continuing every year.
  8. Yeah she's definitely not private, always been really loud. I agree, he's great.
  9. Matt Sorum's Autobiography

    I've heard that too, although I didn't know that wrestlers were involved with GnR stuff. Not just a couple tracks, Josh played on most of the album He's doing great, been like that for the last few years.
  10. The "New Album" Thread

    Someone in the other thread said that GnR might not perform again until Axl is 60 and that it might be the end of the road for GnR; if that's true then they've really dropped the ball and wasted a lot of time, both with new music and the reunion itself. In the end was it all worth it?
  11. I went back and watched it. I don't know what you all are complaining about; it wasn't supposed to be a formal interview, just two friends chatting about whatever. It was pretty obvious that Duff wasn't going to be asked about new music. As a musician myself I enjoyed hearing him talk about the monitors and the other stuff; I really wish I could hang out with him sometime and just talk about stuff and jam in his basement. And anyways, even if he was asked about it he probably would've given the same vague answer as before. He's not going to make a major announcement on Instagram Live while talking to his buddy. As I said before, I wish Slash and Duff would do one together, just talking about whatever. Or Slash and the SMKC guys.
  12. Milwauke concert cancelled/postponed

    I agree, may not be until next year.
  13. GNR WOMEN'S CHAT 2020 *NEW*

    Probably not, his life is just one big long lockdown with the occasional tour in between.
  14. The "New Album" Thread

    We may never know, but my guess is that he was working on new songs in some form or another. I agree, they really should've gotten something out in 2018 or 2019.
  15. Yeah I'm sure there's some bands there, and you could start your own too.
  16. GNR WOMEN'S CHAT 2020 *NEW*

    Hope you all get better soon.
  17. The "New Album" Thread

    Maybe I think they did.
  18. GNR WOMEN'S CHAT 2020 *NEW*

  19. Dizzy Reed continues to release more music than Axl

    That actually sounds pretty good! Looking forward to hearing the rest of the record.
  20. They thought that when Axl did those spoken word parts he sounded like Alice, so they asked Alice to come and do those parts.
  21. The "New Album" Thread

    Even though I said I'm not going to get into it right now, here's the short list of reasons: The closest recordings for comparison are the Live Like a Suicide and Sound City versions of SOYL. So after listening to that it's pretty clear that: Slash's tone is completely different (it's his current NITL Silver Jubilee tone) and his playing is not like how he used to play back in the 80s, it sounds like his playing now, Duff's tone is different (NITL tone), timbre of Axl's voice is different - sounds like how he sounds now and not the timbre of his old voice, Frank (or whoever is playing the drums) is playing slightly differently than Steven originally did (specifically the 2 crash cymbal hits in succession in the verses, Steven never did that) and also to me the drums sound like Frank's kit does from the tour (specifically the snare and ride cymbal). Watch one of the videos of them performing SOYL in 2018 and listen to how Slash's guitar sounds and how Axl sings it. Sounds very close to this new recording. To me this is more than a shadow of a doubt that it's rerecorded, or that they just slapped a new guitar solo or something on it. That's way too many differences for it to be an old recording. I remember when they had that website teaser up with the main riff of the song playing and those radio static noises over it, even then I thought that it didn't sound right. I don't know why they wanted to pass it off as an old original recording, or why they even decided to rerecord it in the first place. Maybe there was something wrong with the original tapes or something.
