Thats a matter of taste, BUT I’d invite you to listen it a couple of more times

I played Atlas on the stereo while driving and it certainly gives a different perspective than listening with headphones. It’s a great driving song, and I can see it being a radio hit with more work done on it.

All over the place this song. I get what he was trying to do but I dont think its working it its current state.

I don't especially like Catcher and therefore can't warm to this either. Prefer Hard School. 

I really hope if the band do make some new music, this Atlas/Catcher style of cleaner singing is ditched. Lacks the punch that makes Axl such an iconic signer.

Just to clarify:Does Brian May play guitar on this ?

Some early media reports say yes. The guitar in the track is also unmistakable. It just sounds like May.

The first version I heard was slightly bland and boring, second version I heard seemed a bit beefed up on the drums which ties in with some of the comments that there are a couple of different versions floating around. The heavier drums was more interesting IMO although clearly missing the final guitar parts so I imagine the end version would sound a bit different.

It makes sense based on the title that it would be paired with Catcher and have a similar sound and style

Really love the 2nd verse when the additional guitars kick in and the drums really groove.

 

Can you imagine Sorum on this...

Cool track....reaches for similar airspace as The Blues, & Estranged.  Definitely can see a Bowie/Elton/Glitter Rock influence on this track.  Has potential with the right final mix but seems to be lacking somehow.  Was in a way similar to what I'd expected with this track.

Hard School>Atlas without a doubt.

Has any version leaked in full that had the additional guitar/synth parts from the 1:17 phone recording?

That's what I was wondering! Right before the cellphone clip cuts out, I swear I heard a lil guitar riff that sounded quite nice in that part of the song behind Axls vocals. Good catch with the synth, too. I didn't notice it. Headphones make it much more enjoyable and easier to spot the difference's. 

This drums up version is quite good!  I didn't even really care for the song at first, either. It really does grow on ya.

Particularly When Axl jumps into second part of the song at the 1:41 mark there is a pretty kick ass/kinda pretty synth thing going on that I really dig, and sounds wonderful as Axls singing the line "To be half as strong, to still belong". Man. What a difference this version and a few additional listens can make.

So it doesn't really sound as we, or at least I expected it to. But I say that's a good thing. We can't expect art to work around our expectations. Atlas drums up = 9 outta 10 for me.

Drums up version really sounds much clearer. Vocals seem to be more crisp too, as well as the guitars. A bit like the differences between the initial HS leak & the second version that leaked together with the CD batch.

Is this the actual drums up version or the fanmade one from a few days ago

I second this question?

Drums up is real and leaked before the weekend.

Drums down is an imsorry mix. The mix from the CDs hasn't leaked.

Where did the version that leaked come from if not the CD's?
