P.R.L. - Full Leak Discussion Thread **NO LINKS, NO ASKING / HINTING FOR LEAKS**

Recommended Posts

Glad this electronica stuff never saw the light of day.  Sheesh.  Hard pass.  I don't care if there are no guitars on this...no amount of guitars would ever make this good.

The second album was supposed to be titled "P.R.L." and the tracklist in theory would have been

1. Thyme

2. P.R.L.

So listen to both tracks in that order if you want an idea of how the second album would have started

Isn't Thyme supposed to be part of P.R.L. Like layered into the song or something. Sure I heard that somewhere but cant see it working at all.

Definite Crystal Method vibe. I remember this sound back in the 99 timeframe. It was pretty cool back then. Takes me back! :)

In 2002 Marco Beltrami re-did it as an orchestra piece - so imagine Thyme as a piece of classical music to open the album

I don't particularly like this one or Thyme. But I definitely want to know how the fuck they'd combine into a full track with guitars and vocals. Both seem like building blocks to something.

I thought eveyrone was aware that all songs with vocals have already leaked.

Into this?.....

Fucking hell lol

It's hard to judge without guitars but I don't think that would have worked.

Strange to think someone reported all those years ago that the follow up to Chinese Democracy was going to be called P.R.I. and it was largely ignored!

I’m glad we never got an electronica version of GNR. This is so late 90s the way disco was so late 70s.

I mean...it sounds exactly like the outro to "Closer" and that was from fucking 1994

It's like Axl got caught dabbling in Electronica, his entire band left him, and then he hired a bunch of other people to prove them wrong...but by the time he figured everything out the fad had passed

Really - listen to 5:00 on from "Closer" and then listen to PRL

Well, he also copied Smells Like Teen Spirit. So the early 90's were a clear influence. ;):P

This record should have been called "Grunge Sent Me Into Hiding." It's a clear indicator that Mac Daddy thought a style change was in order to keep the band relevant, and guys like Slash probably opposed to that - and I don't blame them.

Not really interested in anything without vocals, tbh.

5. I SAID FUCK MY EX WIFE (BUT MOST OF ALL SLASH)

6. Silkworms (no Slash)

7. I'm The Victim (and it's all Slash's fault)

Fixed.

Wouldn't be fair to pass final judgement on this 'song' (or any of them infact) without the vocals added - never mind in this case with it also lacking guitars. 

Think of some of the odd industrial shit going on in the background on 'better'.... being one of the 'better' tracks on CD, i would not have thought that if we had only just heard 3 dollar pyramid instrumental. 

That said.... i'm not keen on this in its current form!

if there was ever a song that had something to do with moby... this is it.

but this leak at this level of completion is good as nothing. since without guitar, it could range from spice girls to nin.

From Wikipedia: 
In February 1997, electronic producer Moby entered talks to produce; he said: "They’re writing with a lot of loops, and believe it or not, they’re doing it better than anybody I’ve heard lately." Moby pulled out to focus on his solo work.  

 

There's definitely a lot of loop stuff on the discs. Funny to think it'd already be as old as 1997.

From Chinese Whispers

Quote

"I had produced [techno songstress] Poe [album Hello, released in 1995] and there were drum loops in the songs, and Axl wanted that." (Matt Sorum, Spin, 07/99)

So this is what Axl was aiming for:
