  1. Outside of Cape Town, Jo'burg and Cairo where have any other world tours gone within the African continent? I'm no expert but consider they would need to fly in all the gear themselves (what could you get locally?) in a market that has few large promoters of rock shows, with next to no indoor venues that could host the GN'R production, etc. I'm sure all that means it's logistically impossible at this point in time.
  2. @missilehead and @facefirst appear to be different users, in different countries. It's not too difficult to tell when someone is using a proxy / VPN and this doesn't look to be the case here.
  3. Thanks for noticing that @Ratam, it looks like a problem with the theme. It will be sorted over the coming days.
  4. How absurd. Thought I was well and truly done after Hershey but I have to say I've never enjoyed a song I hated quite so much.
  5. 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, enjoyable front to back and finishes right before you get tired of the formula. BI is kind of like Ballbreaker for me - a bit of a chore after a certain point. Bit of a tangent, but I was saying to a friend the other day, my condensed album ranking sits something like: POWERAGE / HTH / BIB LTBR / FOTS The rest of Bon-era (lazy but mostly true I think) FTATR / FOTW / POWER UP (hard to clearly "rank" these for me) ---------- TRE / SUL ROB / BUYV / BB BI Everything below the line, I'll rarely listen to in full but they'll each have anywhere between 1-4 tracks I really like. Everything above is more or less killer. Power Up sits pretty comortably among the upper group for me. First one in 30 years to make the cut. 👍
  7. 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.
