Perhaps - Full Leak Discussion Thread **NO LINKS, NO ASKING / HINTING FOR LEAKS**

Recommended Posts

I mean what the fuck was wrong with all these industry people? We should've got the Beavan album around the turn of the millennium - it only got harder and harder to explain to the public after that high point of interest.

Perhaps and Hard School are my two favorites from the leaks so far. They both have that classic GNR vibe.

Brians solo beats anything Slash has released dont@me 

It's remarkable that although it's so obviously Brian May playing, it fits the song perfectly.

And by the way, no wonder Axl half asses his vocals so much of the time. He's probably been bored and frustrated singing the same songs for twenty years, sitting on stuff like this.

IKR? His solos on Catcher, Atlas, and now Perhaps have made everything else look like child’s play.

Agreed!

This is enthralling and infuriating at the same time. This album was fucking ready and it was fucking good.

I am very happy with what we had but if they released a double album at the time Chinese would have been the best selling album of all time

Axl was right. They were ready to mix.

Slash wasn’t on it and they wanted to sell an album with him. Didn’t matter how good the songs were. They wanted money

This is the most UYI sounding track in the entirety of the CD era IMO

They ended up losing a ton of money as a result. It's as simple as this - at the turn of the millennium a traditional GnR album would've been really unfashionable. This material gave Axl a fighting chance of weathering the storm, for all he wouldn't have sold 15 million. Universal Music wasted a fortune and a career here.

I was always skeptical of this theory until these songs started leaking and it was clear the music was there. Axl was ready to roll. They gambled by punting, hoping slash would return, never thinking that Axl would legitimately hold out for nearly 10 years.

I feel the same way, although I like to hear all the different versions of all the songs.

Well I'm blown away by both songs that leaked tonight

 

I was losing all my hope after Atlas and Hardschool but this. This is what I wanted from Chinese Democracy album. Updated UYI sound

This what I got so far, does anyone know what the first three raspy vocal parts say? 

Perhaps I was wrong
When I didn't see you
Haaay haaay
Perhaps I was wrong
Haaaaay
When I don't believe you
But I wanna know how it feels
What it is to be you
I've been so upset
Harbouring this hate for days

My sense of rejection 
Haaay haaay
Is no excuse for my behaviour 
Haaaaay
You pulled the gun 
Haaay haaay
That shot and crucified my saviour

Now he is no more
And I am without you
Just like I was before
The way I used to be
What a weight upon your shoulders
That you don't need
My heart beats (?bleeds?) for me

(?) 
You're all alone now
(?) 
You're all alone
(?)
You're all alone 
Used to be a little crazy now there's so much more 
You're all alone

Ooooooh

Perhaps I was wrong
When I didn't see you
Haaay haaay
Perhaps I was wrong
Haaaaay
When I don't believe you
But I wanna know how it feels
What it is to be you
I've been so upset
Harbouring this hate for days
What a weight upon your shoulders
That you don't need
My heart beats (?bleeds?) for me 

(?) 
You're all alone now
(?) 
You're all alone
(?)
You're all alone 
Used to be a little crazy now there's so much more 
You're all alone

Some slight changes, still think most of the raspy vocals are mostly unintelligible to me.

How the fuck does this song not make the album? The only explanation was that he honest to God thought he was going to release two albums.
