Eye On You - Full Leak Discussion Thread **NO LINKS, NO ASKING / HINTING FOR LEAKS**

Game on!

Man. Just imagine. You're a rock singer and you have a band and you want to make an album. And you have Hardschool, Atlas, Perhaps, State of Grace and Eye On You all ready. And for some reason you still wake up one day and think "You know what? I'm going to put Scraped on the album!". 

 

But yeah, honestly, this is awesome. It's something completely different and hard and heavy. It might be the worst of the new tracks (imo), but I still like it. I mean, fuck, if you listen to the old demos of CD and Rhiad and SoG and this you just think DAMN, this could've been a heavy album. Honestly, I'm even loving the old Silkworms leak. Which feels weird and uncomfortable. 

These leaks also succeeded in something CD didn't succeed in - making me blast "new" Guns n' Roses stuff really loud on my car stereo for the first time in forever.

I haven’t heard this one yet (am at work), but guys, you keep forgetting there were supposed to be 2 or 3 records. Nobody says all this "new" stuff we’ve heard so far was never to see the light of day; it could have been intended for the sequels…

Is that really Axl singing “I know you think you’re bad but who’s the Mac daddy?” Doesn’t sound like him.

I dont think its real. The sound of the drums dont match any of the leaks in the way it was mixed or the sound of the snare/bass drum.

Plus the tone actually sounds like shit. Like line 6 $80 amp shit

sounds shit as fuck don't it lol

The chorus is catchy but I think this is GnR’s least GnR-sounding song that we’ve heard, tbh. Yes, even more so than My World and Silkworms. Not sure why Axl thought people would accept his new band if he had presented a song like this to the world. Makes me think this song was always intended as just a fun little private experiment and nothing more, or the plan was to just use the the hip hop/ industrial beat as a foundation for inspiration, and then move the vocal line written on top of it over to a guitar melody. Axl says that he wrote the orchestral bridge of TIL that way, so it’s not too much of a stretch of the imagination, I suppose.

I wonder if Brain wrote the drum loop? Also, this, If the World, and Silkworms all had their first versions mixed on the 7th of November 2000.

@Gambit83 Can you ask Brain about this song?

Can I be there to hear it?

I'd like to talk for a full hour about Eye on You.

Cheers :heart::hug::heart:

Honestly I feel bad for listening to stuff like this that was never supposed to see the light of day. Kinda like if someone had stolen my sketchbook and was laughing at my unused ideas. It doesn't feel fair.

Look at it this way: Axl and the band played tunes that are mostly 30 year old and made half a billion in ticket sales and we get to listen to 20 year old unreleased demos. This batch of leaks didn't set the world on fire, we are a very small group of fans and the response is generally positive plus: if he'll just fuckin' release something officially, I'd buy it twice. In the mean time, they don't feel bad for me as a Gn'R fan, I don't feel bad for Axl. He gets to live like a king.

Also: as bad as you feel, you've still listened to it. It's not my ideal or first choice to steal but as far as Gn'R go, I'm starved. Almost no choice on the matter.

this song isn’t good enough to be anywhere higher.

6. The General (Evader's)
7. Going Down

I can see that, but I love this song. It's also cool to hear demos of songs to see the creative process, and you can get something different from them that you don't in final versions. I like the Stevie Nicks song Planets of the Universe with its eighties production and all, but there's a beautiful haunting demo version of it on the deluxe version of Rumours that came out a few years ago.

 

On another note, potential concert tees?:
