     Him and Trent are shit though.

    Reznor has been saying for 20+ years that that story is made up and not true. Which, I guess, was one of the reasons he cut ties with him back in the day.

    I love the production-mess that CD is. :-D I can listen to it a thousand times and still hear new things and details. There are so many layers, so many things buried in the mix, I think it's absolutely fascinating, trying to figure out what the hell is actually exactly going on in all of these songs! It never gets old for me, it will probably always remain my most favourite record of all time for so many reasons.

    This. So much this. After all these years I still hear new things. I love it. Final version of There Was A Time is such a masterpiece, for example. 

    Though, I got to say I do love the demos too. Especially the bass-heavy versions. And IRS '99 has an amazing, untouchable vibe. 

    I guess I love all those versions. I love the songs and it's cool to have different versions of them.

    Hey man, thank you very much for listening to it, I'm happy you like it! Appreciate your feedback concerning the drums, I will certainly take a look at that! :-) Now that I'm listening to it again, I also feel they could be a bit louder or stronger.

    I'm no mixing expert, but I dabble a bit with songwriting and stuff, and I've found that when it comes to rock and metal, it's important to give space for bass and drums. They lay the foundation which in turn helps the guitar shine.

    But I'm not critizing your song or anything, it's cool stuff :headbang:The thought just came to my mind.

    For other bands maybe, this is a band that's put out Jungle, PC, SCOM, YCBM.
    Hardschool is a spec of dust you flick of your shoulder compared to those.

    This. 

    It's an okay-ish song, but nowhere near the quality Guns is able to produce.

    If I would be the manager of Guns, I'd make sure they'd release three singles before releasing a full length record.

    #1 WTTJ meets Chinese Democracy -type rocker

    #2 An acoustic ballad

    #3 A Guns epic combining elements from the two previous songs

    Then WHAMMO! Album out and let the world (read: this forum) go nuts!

     

    But pinball machines are all we get 😅

    No, I saw the last show of the Axl/DC tour in Philly.  He was out of the chair by then and he sounded even better than these videos.

    He still didn't run around during the AC/DC shows (because he didn't "want it to make it about him" or whatever the reason was, which IMO was pretty considerate and cool). So that made him probably sound even better, because being still and standing gives you more control of your voice, than being still and sitting down.

    You are probably right. Further proof this is not a band. It’s a dysfunctional joke of a band while only purpose is lining the pockets of the band and their entourage.

    I'll read the book when it comes out. I really don't mind Matt dishing out the dirt though. What makes Slash and Duff so fucking untouchable?

    I liked Duff's book, it was very well written, but the political corectness annoyed me. Tell us something interesting for fucks sake. Burst some bubbles. He said so little about so many interesting things yet went on and on and on about his martial arts mumbo jumbo. Who gives. I bet I'll enjoy Matt's gossip more.

    I guess it's a matter of either wanting to air you dirty laundry in public or not. I mean, everyone has some dirt on people they know well, but you can choose to be classy and respectful. And obviously Duff chose that route and told an interesting and reflecting story of his journey without throwing anyone under the bus. I think there's nothing wrong with that.

  8. "Gn'R Machine"

    I get the feeling that Sorum's ego colors some of the stories, but that is a pretty good description of this version of Gn'R. I don't know, maybe it's the years spent on this forum bitching about everything and getting cynical about the band, but Slash and Duff do seem a bit more corporate these days.

    I'm still happy about the reunion, though.
