  1. This is just pathetic at this point that a year in quarantine and no tours led to absolutely zero new material being written. If they just have Slash and Duff on top of old Axl vocals and Brain drums, then why the hell couldn't they have released these five years ago?
  2. If Slash says “GNR album is coming this spring” or whatever, it just totally overshadows everything he’s currently promoting. I get why he’d be vague. But they’ve always been vague about Guns. At least in 2021, we got a couple surprise drops. I really do think there’s more to come. But not till Slash is done touring.
  3. Imagine if gnr promoted a single the same way The Conspirators just did. With an actual music video, a band photo, and a few interviews.
  4. A huge portion of GNR's fan base doesn't give a shit about new music. It's "classic rockers" who wanna hear the bangers from their youth. The songs that were playing on the radio when they came of age, partied, lost virginity, etc.
  5. I do think a full album is coming. I don't think it's coming soon. Meegan posted that the first single from Slash/Conspirators' new record is dropping very soon. I don't see how it logically even makes sense to release a Conspirators single then do a GNR album drop in, say, November. Unfortunately, though it's been a fun year, I think GNR will stay dark till before the next leg of a tour starts. We will probably see a record in that timeframe.
  6. I wasn’t complaining though. I was responding to the question on why they’d do a “single” or “ep” physical release if an album was forthcoming. I’m happy with it.
  7. Honestly? Money. That's why. I don't even buy physical releases anymore, and I ordered the CD and the vinyl knowing full well I have to wait for almost a year to get it. And if this theoretical album dropped between now and then, I'd cop that too. I assume "Hard Skool" and "Absurd" will be on the full-length record, but it would be pretty awesome if they weren't. More songs is never a bad thing. Plus, it would make the "EP" we all ordered a little more special.
  8. Goddamn, I love you brilliant bastards for giving me hope by studying numbers. The depths we must go to try to cull information about a new record is beyond ridiculous, but also fun. I choose to continue to hope a new album is coming sooner rather than later.
  9. "This I love" sounds like GNR. "There was a Time" sounds like GNR. That song has some of the best guitar solos in their catalog. In fact, the Chinese Democracy record features blistering guitars and tremendous codas, both staples of GNR. Saying "Hard Skool" sounds like the first proper GNR song in 30 years is ridiculous because that just means it has Slash's trademark tone. Of course that sound is instantly recognizable, and Slash's greatest success is with GNR. I like what was done with "Hard Skool" and "Absurd." "Absurd" similarly has the trademark Slash guitar tone and Duff's groovy bass. However, I'd really like to see what else this current group puts out, 'cause I'd like more evolutionary type of work. Not a fallback to a "traditional" sound. Something like live "Better" with the bridge intro sounds really dope. Had that been the studio release, it'd be like a blend of old GNR styles and new. But if they're just gonna past Axl's vocals over some Slash and Duff music, I know it'll be good and it'll "sound like Guns N' Roses." But I'm not sure it's going to be taking the group in any type of new direction. And I guess at this point, it's OK. Then again, all that said, "Absurd" kind of points to a band that isn't afraid to put out something people don't expect from them. So I hope there's a lot more where that came from.
  10. It's not weird Slash is promoting a new single already. It's weird they did no promo besides the obligatory social media post for the new GNR studio releases. It'd be cool to hear them discuss future GNR plans, but that isn't gonna happen. If anything, maybe the canceled tour will push up the Conspirators record. I can't wait to see them live again. And here's hoping Duff does another solo tour too.
  11. I've had a lot of fun following this tour and the two new songs, and official studio releases. It's a bummer it's over. I was lowkey hoping for a random UCAP theater type tour. Brief Vegas run. Something to keep this momentum going. The band sounded tight, they all looked like they were having a blast after a year off the road. I am now a believer a new album drop was likely imminent but it was all put on pause starting with Mexico.
  12. People in here complaining about the set list tonight are acting like little bitches. We wanted them to change shit up and they finally have been. Tonight’s set list was awesome. I’m jealous of Catcher. I’m still chasing that dragon.
  13. Stream is jumping but it appears he's still feeling his way around how to sing the verses. I wish the studio version had Duff and Melissa this high in the mix on the "too hard school" part. Definitely a banger.
  14. Man the stream I'm watching keeps skipping, but this Hard Skool sounds better than the other night.
  15. "You're Crazy" sounds really good. Good stream too. Thank you, whoever you are!
  16. They should open with "Hard Skool" at this point.
  17. So ... uh ... are we gonna get "Atlas Shrugged" tonight or what?
  18. Chicago litho pops in person. I was underwhelmed at first, but the detail on it is really nice. It's got dirty infield sand brushed all over it too. And there are Big League Chew/Wrigley (company) ties too. All in all, it grew on me quite a bit. And also it's the only litho this leg that's horizontal, which is a change of pace. The official city shirt was a baseball tee too, so the design worked on that better than a white t-shirt. One thing that disappointed me about a previous litho with a design I loved (Chicago Michael Jordan inspired United Center) is a lot of the details on the shirt were lost on the litho. Like they saturated the darks too much and you couldn't see the silhouettes of other players in background. Sort of lame, tbh. Here's a link to ebay https://www.ebay.com/itm/255148266528?hash=item3b68059420:g:cdoAAOSwlg1fkLTh The first image listed is not the actual litho, and this even appears to be a fake litho because the actual posters didn't have this much detail on them in regard to the background players. Edit 2: Never mind. It appears the seller is even stating this is a rare "reprint" and not original.
  19. So ... why is the CD taking till next year to ship, fam? I just got an email from Metallica that their live performance from the Metro in Chicago (9/20) can be purchased on CD and it's available by end of October.
  20. I don't even mind the lyrics. Still funny so many people are pressed about 'em.
  21. This is exactly it. I am not a collector 'cause I like to live pretty much clutter-free. But the physical releases will fit nicely into my existing box set. GNR is probably the only band I'd even buy physical media for these days.
  22. The old bait-and-switch. They also didn't show anything from the letters.
  23. Say what y'all want about "Absurd," but it's 100 percent a headbanger at a live show.
