Chinese Democracy - revisited and reconstructed

Recommended Posts

With these new leaks, here is my suggestion for an optimal record from the CD era, an improved Chinese Democracy, if you will:
 
1. Chinese Democracy (the leaked version with the awesome bass during the verses and without Bumble's tacked-on solo)
2. Shackler's Revenge
3. Better
4. Atlas Shrugged
5. Hardschool
6. There Was A Time
7. Catcher in the Rye (the leaked version with Brian May's solo and without Bumble's chaotic outtro solo)
8. Perhaps
9. State of Grace
10. Sorry
11. I.R.S (the leaked version with less guitars)
12. Madagascar (likely a simpler version)
13. This I Love
14. Prostitute
 
This album is awesome. The best GN'R album of all times.

Wow ...

I would throw new vocals “This I Love remix” on there for a fresh sound along with The Blues.

If the CD is the one with Josh instead of Brain then yeah that's an album right there.

Yes, that's the one.

I will change Twat for the version that leaked in 2006.

And probably SR for The Blues 2001

For sure, would of been the greatest GNR album IMO. 'cept maybe a few personal switches in the tracklist, like not leaving out Rhiad ;), scraped and TIL I can do without.

I’ll probably get killed for this (lol)- but gimme the Dj Ashba “Better” (studio)...

I like the guitar riff in the chorus. Really cool.

That's the one with Bucket's solo? Yeah, I agree.

I would keep the 2008 album exactly the same except switch out Catcher and Riad for their respective 2000 demos, switch out If the World and TWAT for their respective Antiquiet demos, and finally, switch out The Blues with either the 2001 demo or the demo that MSL leaked.

Everything else should just be on another album altogether.

It really is time to leave this album in the past and move forward.

Yeah, I love some of the leaks, but am not overly fussed on seeing any of the songs reworked with Slash and Duff. The next album should be fresh material written from scratch, imo.

I mean I hope the General is on there, but all in all, these last two months have felt like the slow closing of the lid on that era.

My only change would be The blues instead of Shacklers.  Great album.

Id even consider Going Down, Silkworms or OMG instead of Sorry lol.

FWIW these are all my ChiDem-related fanmade bootlegs. I had to do some rebranding on some of the songs, but I finally have enough songs to make what I like to call Chinese Democracy - Vol. II.

Chinese Democracy- Remixes & More

In a perfect world we had CD with the best songs in their 2002-ish state of recording around 2004-2006, sans Ron and Frank. Vegas, weddings and Ashba never happened, instead we would have gotte an EP with the remaining members of Queen (plus RTB) incl. Catcher, Perhaps etc. and the "reunion" kicking off with a new studio album of fresh tracks in 2017, instead of a greatest hits n' covers tour we would have gotten the AFD 5 performing the entire AFD album live plus 10-15 more songs (UYI, CD and new ones) every night. And all that could have been...oh how much potential and material went down the drain all those years.

I don't think anyone who posted tracklists took into consideration that CD's can only have 74 minutes worth of audio

Personally, I'd separate the albums into 2000 Intentions ("Drum Loop Album") and Chinese Democracy ("Ballad Album")

So something like

2000 Intentions

1. Better

2. Oh My God

3. Riad N' the Bedouins

4. Shackler's Revenge

5. Scraped

6. If the World

7. There Was a Time

8. The General

9. State of Grace

10. Silkworms

11. Prostitute

 

Chinese Democracy

1. Chinese Democracy

2. Hard School

3. I.R.S.

4. Madagascar

5. Going Down

6. This I Love

7. Street of Dreams

8. Catcher in the Rye

9. Atlas Shrugged

10. Sorry

11. Perhaps
