  1. One mans shit is another mans gold. I happen to think State of Grace is pretty rubbish, but you love it. Different strokes for different folks.
  2. When all is said and done (we're not the only ones), I am pleased to have ABSURD and Hard Skool and see them as worthy additions to the Guns catalogue. As much as I wish Axl was more "normal" and wrote/recorded new shit like other bands, as long as I enjoy the stuff they put out and it comes out in a regular fashion, then I'm happy. Obviously, I would prefer an album, but two singles in one year is more than we've had in 10+yrs, and if we get another two next year I'll be happy. I will continue to follow/support this band all the while they are putting out official releases and don't particularly care when/how the songs came to fruition, providing they're musically pleasing to me.
  3. I think it would go some way to helping your credibility if you elaborated on WHY you believe that. You always talk as if you are privy to something the rest of us aren't, but then turn around and use phrases like "I believe" etc. Cut the bullshit - are you claiming to have inside knowledge or not?
  4. Why do you talk with such certainty that no vocally-completed songs exist outside of the ones leaked on the Village demos? You have no way of knowing if this is true. We know for a fact that Axl continued recording vocals beyond 1999, Shacklers Revenge was recorded as late as 2002-2006. And didn't Axl talk about recording some vocals over Christmas one year for a track... was it Soul Monster or Seven? I can't recall which one, but he spoke about it in the 2009 MyGNR chats. None of us even knew songs like Perhaps, Eye on You and State of Grace existed before the Village demos leaked. You have no way of knowing what else Axl has lying around that is vocally completed.
  5. I can't believe anybody legitimately thinks this song is superior to Hard Skool. I find it hard to believe anybody genuinely believes that. Hard Skool ain't the best Guns song, but it shits all over this song, lets be real.
  6. I think the fanbase needs to collectively accept that Uncle Axl is never going to operate GNR like a normal band. Anybody hoping that Slash and Duff coming back into the fold would change things was simply kidding themselves. Axl is prepared to "let Slash play" on HIS songs, but other than that, it's like "It's 5 O Clock Somewhere" all over again - Axl simply ain't interested in working on Slash's original compositions. I for one will take what I can get. It's far from ideal, completely dysfunctional and utterly frustrating to watch as a fan, but an album of Chinese leftovers with Slash and Duff would actually probably be better than anything the three of them could write nowadays anyway.
  7. There clearly is no intention to write new shit together like a normal band. TBH, releasing Hard Skool and Absurd sort of confirmed that anyway, but I guess we were all holding out on the slim chance that we were wrong.
  8. Totally agree. Utterly depressing that Axl has this talent at his disposal but just can't be bothered to be creative.
  9. In terms of lead singles: You're A Lie > Driving Rain > River Is Rising > World on Fire (never cared for this one tbh)
