State of Grace is better. Perhaps has a catchy verse, but no real chorus. I don't like those multi-layered screams that infest almost every CD era song.

I'm slowly accepting that that's just the sound he wanted. Anyone who prefers Chinese songs with classic voice has a zillion versions from 2006-2010. It's just a shame he'll probably never be able to sing any of this unreleased stuff like that.

Im pretty sure 'Perhaps' is about MDC and John Lennon.

 

 

My sense of rejection (hey hey)
is no excuse for my behavior(yeah)
you pulled the gun (hey hey)
that shot and crucified my savior
now he is no more
And I am without you,
like I was before
the way I used to be
what a weight upon your shoulders
that you dont need
my heart bleeds for me

Read your post, found and listened and 100% agree

just heard perhaps so far and wow....this is god damn awful. even Brian Mays solo can't fix it. the whole album shows that Axl can't write choruses :( like wtf? did he really expect that fans and public will like this stuff? AFD and UYI are whole other worlds...

yesterday i listened to Madagascar. Actually its hit Material, but the mixing and orchestration is so god damn awful...that it just make you sad...

British influences all over the beginning, definitely UYI quality material.

Yea right? If this guy is named after the band, then nothing he says should be taken seriously

He had all this great material but played the same setlist for years.

Partly why I've not bothered going to see the band since 2006. 

 

Had no interest in seeing them after Robin left. Ashba was a circus of a man.

 

Even with Slash & Duff back, you're paying silly money for something approaching cabaret.

On about my 10th listen and this song has really grown on me. A proper version fleshed out with the current band would be perfect,   I remember a quote (paraphrasing) years ago from someone who said that slash wanted to be AC/DC and make straight rock music and Axl wanted to be like the Beatles where it's different every time. I think Axl was right.... hopefully a new album can be half AFD style and half in this style.

Maybe touch up on some vocals and it's there, definitely a grower like the rest of CD, oh Axl why :/ beautiful little piano lick.

What? This chorus is awesome, and Hardschool and Atlas were great too. The only issue i had with the latter two were the constant repeating of them, but that isn't a fault of the chorus more than it is a lack of verses.

I think Perhaps is my favorite peak...love the old voice and love the piano. The screaming? Eh....but the rest makes up for it. I even like the lyrics. So now I’m ranking at -

1-Perhaps

2-atlas

3-hardschool

4-state-of-grace

Every day of my life I fall in love a little bit more with Axls voice, and I already loved it and always thought he is the #1 singer of all time.

Just listen to his natural clean singing voice here and in the Atlas verses.

What a voice for Christs sake.

I believe he will put more drive (rasp) in his new release; just because of what he said at the China Exchange. He is aware that fans “didnt react well”.

I noticed the repeating lyrics at first but after a few listens the songs really grow on you.  But some of their greatest songs repeat the same lines like "You Could Be Mine".  He says "you could be mine" a dozen times and it never seemed to bother anybody.  Same with "Don't Cry".

I don't think anyone's brought this up so far - was "Perhaps" going to be the cornerstone of the second album?

From a January 2001 interview with Axl (night after Rio):

Quote

"He admitted not feeling happy with the show last night, and gave some details of the new album: he already has 36 songs practically ready (one dedicated to John Lennon, another about child abuse), and there is a possibility that the album is double , in the style of Use your illusion, one of the compacts would be named after Chinese Democracy and the other would be called PRL"

One of the leakers has said PRL = "Perhaps"

So Perhaps is working title for Thyme? The one that Marco Beltrami work on the arrangement?
