  1. Woof. After what, 8 singles already? I can definitely write this one off, this is musical Xanax.
  2. I keep hoping and praying that Billy puts something good out again. I followed the pre-reunion years fairly closely and both Zeitgeist and Oceania have some solid tunes, but they're not great albums. So then I hoped James and Jimmy coming back might light a fire under Billy's ass and really get something great out of him again...and instead we're getting boneless synthpop that's not far from the stuff he was trying to do ten years ago with the Teargarden crap. Billy hasn't really evolved his style at all in a decade and it absolutely fucking baffles me that this band has three guitarists and o
  3. If you would've told me in 2006 that one day Slash would be saying the same things about new music as Bumblefoot and Fortus used to, I'd probably have an aneurysm.
  4. Nothing. This band is long past the point of doing anything but the occasional tour, and they're either not savvy enough or willing enough to embrace things like an active and open social media presence or unique online events during the Covid era. I'd say we might get ONE brand new song from the band before they eventually call it quits, but I don't see them ever going into a studio to bang out a full length album.
  5. I mean, dude is part of one genuinely amazing front to back album (Appetite), a mixed bag of great songs and filler (UYI I & II), a shitty cover album, and what amounts to a solo album that took 14 years to make and that a LOT of people hated. The prime of his career was what, four years long? Axl is the reason I'm a lifelong fan of rock and music in general, but let's be honest, the dude flamed out hard and wasted the majority of his career doing fuck all.
  6. Two weeks after it dropped and I'm still listening to Run the Jewels 4 almost daily. Shit SLAPS and the lyrics are pretty powerful and timely.
  7. CD was the first vinyl I ever bought as a teenager, but man it's such a garbage pressing. Very staticy and starts getting really bad towards the end of each side. The mix itself sounded like it was solid but it was hard to get through in light of the noisyness of it all.
  8. It's easy as fuck to release music these days as long as the artist actually wants to. Hell, you don't even need promotion, you can literally drop an album the same day as a surprise and let it build its own buzz (you know, as long as its actually good). You know that would be HUGE news if a band the size of GNR just surprise released something, and it would work better for them too since no one would have time to build any expectations.
  9. The Black Dahlia Murder - Nocturnal Cattle Decapitation - Death Atlas Ringo Deathstarr - Self-Titled
  10. The thing that interests me the most about this is the Hair Metal Justin Timberlake on the cover.
  11. I believe he got on meds around that time too. His whole demeanor changed, he suddenly gained a lot of weight, and he seemed to lose a lot of the fire and drive that made Axl, well, Axl. That said, he does seem to be in a lot better headspace these days, and I'm happy he's got his shit sorted out enough to be at peace with himself and the rest of the band as far as we can all tell.
  12. He had it back from 2006 to 2010, and for a brief moment when he was with AC/DC, but for the most part he lost it after 2010. Not getting to release Chinese Democracy on his own terms, or any of the rest of the music, and it not doing well seemed to have broken something in him.
  13. I just remembered that these leaks happened and I'm finally getting around to trying to tracklist an alternate version of CD from the complete songs with vocals. It's something like this: 1. Chinese Democracy 2. Hard School 3. State of Grace 4. I.R.S. 5. Oh My God 6. There Was A Time 7. Catcher in the Rye 8. Madagascar 9. Atlas Shrugged 10. The Blues 11. Riyadh 12. Perhaps 13. Prostitue Oh My God is a bit of an outlier but it does help give a bit of energy to the first half of the tracklist before it dips down into more moodier,
  14. Last month I got to see two great shows back to back: Thrice playing all of Vheissu, alongside support from mewithoutYou (who are breaking up at the end of this year), and one of Ed O'Brien's (Radiohead guitarist) very first solo shows. Both shows were incredible, because Thrice is an all time favorite band of mine and Vheissu is their best work imo, and it was such a treat yelling every word along to it. And Ed's solo stuff was a wonderful surprise, it was a lot more upbeat and jammy than most of Radiohead's stuff, and Ed is a great vocalist in his own right. Really looking forward to the rel
  15. Funny how traveling the world and meeting/working with every walk of life will open someone's mind. It's easy to hate the world and think Daddy Trump will fix everything when you live in a tiny community of like-minded and like-looking people that's never had to step foot out into the wider world.
