  1. Yep, I'm in this camp. The entirety of the above applies to me. I've grown to hate Mists of Time less with more listens (Brian's comments around it were also pretty endearing) but it's the worst track on the album for me, save for the solo. No surprises from me on the other two tracks either. Bubblegum-AC/DC isn't for me. To your question, I couldn't answer track by track but it would probably look something like 7-8 tracks from Power Up, 3-4 from ROB and 1 from Black Ice. I don't really understand the hype for Black Ice. I thought ROB was a much better listen overall; to the point, en
  3. Not sure I can add much at 17 pages, but this album fucking bangs! - I liked SITD when it dropped but the album as a whole is much, much better than I anticipated. - Brian literally sounds like a man back from the dead. Go figure. What a howl to open up proceedings - There are moments that remind me of their whole catalogue (sort of.... all the best bits) - It's a top 5 Brian album for me - The first 3, back 3 and Witches Brew are my favourite tracks Thanks to the boys for saving this absolute dumpster fire of a year. Fuck I love this band.
  4. They're ok my end. Has it resolved itself for you yet @Padme?
  5. Are you able to PM me a screenshot (or post in here) please?
  6. This is cool; NGL though - I was hoping for a full album of Planetary Lockdown / Cintaku.
  7. Welcome to the retirement club @RussTCB!
  8. I get the sense that is what's happening. This band / management team always seems to be starting from square one - so any time there is an idea, it seems to be a lot of work to get off the ground and into reality. To me, this would be very easy for a larger team with more contacts / knowledge of how to get from A to B in this area. TB may still deliver, but it will inevitably take a long time. They clearly know how to organise and run a smooth touring operation. But TB don't seem to have the structure / contacts / organisation in place to make ad-hoc releases like this a sea
  9. Come back. We all miss you.

  10. I really wonder if 80's Axl could hit the notes on songs like Shoot To Thrill. I agree he'd have absolutely dominated the Bon material, but the way he sang back in the 80's was a lot more taxing than the raspy falsetto of today up the higher end. I don't think he could have done Hells Bells, Shoot To Thrill, Thunderstruck, For Those About To Rock, etc with his old style of singing. Despite what it sounds like, Brian himself recorded those tracks with a similar shrieking falsetto to what Axl uses today. I've always believed that's why he was so good at the Brian stuff from day 1 with
  11. I'm not saying it couldn't happen, but my sense is that the numbers wouldn't stack up in terms of demand. https://www.cnbc.com/2019/11/08/the-death-of-the-dvd-why-sales-dropped-more-than-86percent-in-13-years.html I imagine concert DVD sales have fared better but I couldn't find anything in my 5 minutes of Googling. Is that fair? I don't know that releasing a concert DVD from 2016 is necessarily the obvious thing to do in 2020...
  12. The Led Zeppelin DVD came out for a few reasons: - LZ did not play any other shows - no opportunity for a DVD from a later date - No other opportunity to see them live - 20 million people registered for tickets for that show (including half this forum at the time!) - There was huge buzz about the show itself that continued years later. There was massive demand for the release. You can't really say the same for a GN'R gig from 2016. I love your enthusiasm but I don't think it's a realistic comparison.
