The "New Album" Thread

I believe Axl's vocals on the This I Love remix were recorded after CD was released.

I actually was not fond of how he sounded on the remix version. His rasp sounded very forced. He was screaming almost the entire time. I'd rather have a more natural clean singing Axl than a forced screaming rasp Axl. He seems to be able to only achieve that when screaming, which is most of the AC/DC stuff. Still sounds good, but would get old, especially if he sings an entire album like that. I like a good mix, like in Hardschool, of course that was recorded 20 years ago so who know what he sounds like now in the studio.

Agreed with a variance like Hardschool but TIL seemed better for the rasp IMO. As for the studio - RTR confirmed he can still sound good on that front.

If they can make Ozzy sound like Ozzy, they can make Axl sound like Axl.

And TIL was a beast live in 2010, his vocals on the record are underwhelming compared to that.

I'm not saying it's the sensible thing to do, just the right thing to do. Slash is butchering CD songs left and right. At least us CD fans still have the original to go back to, but as of right now there are CD II songs we may never hear in their original form. 

Thats your point of view. Mine is he saves them as far as that's possible.

Unpopular opinion: TIL vocals on the record are overrated and that kind of rasp in a ballad environment makes the song nearly unlistenable.

Actually, same goes for CD vocals overall, I'd much prefer a more relaxed vibe with natural tone in the style UYI was recorded - those never ending edits on every word sang was what killed CD for me.

What would be the thing that would excite you the most in reading about the album before its release?; as in like, one of the band members' descriptions.  Mine would be- assuming the quote would come from Duff- "it's basically Use Your Illusion III."

If some of the songs were played live leading up to the release instead.

I really enjoyed Slash's additions on some CD songs (like Better, Madagascar and TIL). I didn't really enjoy his take on TWAT or Sorry (the latter was good at the start but Slash got really lazy on it).

Never gonna happen. Slash all the way, even if Bucketheads stuff is better.

That would be like getting back together with your ex wife and telling her: "Honey, glad you're back, I'll be getting my blowjobs from Karen though, she was more talented in that regard! Love ya!"

Time will tell.

Lots of guitarists were on CD who were long out of the band by the time it was released.

TBH the only rendition of TWAT that I liked with Slash was in the Madison Sqare Garden. While I was dissapointed with his other attempts on TWAT this particular one impressed me.

Sorry was sometimes good sometimes not so good. 

What I really loved were his first versions of TIL. They were mesmerizing to me.

CD was pretty cool and while he did good on Better I think the original by Robin was superior to Slash's.

Are you talking about Tracii Guns? 

Axl and Buckethead not putting out more material than they did together is one of the biggest missed opportunities next to Disney screwing up the sequel trilogy. 

As proof as to what came about with CD, the material was good, but not great. Axl and Buckethead were not a match. Neither was Tracii Guns. In fact, what did they do together?

Axl and Slash need each other to make great music. When one is missing, the music is good, but not great.  With that being said, I still wish for AFD5.  However, that's a dream. Axl, Slash, and Duff are GNR.

I think Bucket played on Oklahoma and Soul Monster so maybe there’s still some to come.

"March is falling through thanks to Axl ridiculous demands to universal for advertising and promotion. The music is all done which is the good news. Caram is once again the producer.

Left overs and new songs are completed.

 

Found this from another Forum. And yes, I suppose he claims to be another insider :)

Ah yes, the usual "plans changed" excuse. No word on that live blu-ray we were supposed to get by the end of 2019, I suppose? 

Good to know that the "insiders" always have the same tired, old excuses to fall back on though. 

Is it Brasky?

As much as I would love to hear new GNR music I just don't see anything being released anytime soon if ever. I think that the music industry has changed so much that the model of putting new stuff out isn't what it used to be.

Yeah, Brasky is super reliable source - especially when he said that Axl is in great shape before 2019 tour

Must be really fulfilling to pretend to be an insider for a diminishing hardcore fanbase of a (creatively) dead band.

In fairness Russ, WE made them change plans because we downloaded or even talked about THE AMAZING VILLAGE SESSIONS LEAKS WHICH ARE WAY BETTER THAN A NEW ALBUM COULD EVER BE

So yeah, this is really our fault and I for one don't feel the slightest bit of remorse over it. 

Once there was this rock n' roll band

Time went by and it became a joke

I am quietly confident about March given Fernando's alleged comments and the new tour coinciding with the time (plus promotions of 'an all new show'). That said, insiders are more often than not, full of shit.

Wasn’t March supposed to be the EP anyway? And if true, if the only thing holding it up is related to advertising and promotion then that will not be a long-term barrier to something being released.

Brasky is doing a really bad job. Real insider would never believe a rumour that Axl is getting into shape

And what about the ridiculous "inside information" that the supposed EP would include a T-Rex song cover. "Plans have changed" in regards to that, too, it seems :lol:

It’s sad that this band is so boring and uncreative, that some of us believe in things like that lol
