  1. No and they shouldn't, not until Axl gets surgery or has major vocal retraining
  2. Dust N' Bones, Paradise City, You're Crazy, seem to shine on the record. The playing seems to be great, and I don't realllly mind overdubbed vocals.. but not 7 years later when it's really noticeable.
  3. '91-'93 proshots, songs like Perfect Crime, Dust N' Bones, The Garden, Right Next Door To Hell, Don't Cry (alt) with official proshots. CD stuff is definitely worth considering, lots of material and wasted potential; but to me the UYI records had even more potential. The killer tracks got watered down by bad production. Locomotive, Coma, Perfect Crime, Garden of Eden, Civil War, were oversaturated with sound effects, extra dubbed vocals, and bad mixing.
  4. Get Axl in shape and have the polyps and calluses removed from his vocal chords; and get the damn man a singing coach..
  5. It is, but it's interesting; the way people reacted back then, especially during the height of MTV, people were so much more reactive and cognizant of new acts people were. And also shows how huge GN'R was. They truly did rule the world of music for a little while, they were the last great American band
  6. It's interesting how everyone was chomping at the bit to get new Guns stuff and we're dying to hear anything new, or for them to tour, and here we are with 15 song after 29 years
  7. I've always assumed that OIAM is a frame song, that Axl is conveying how someone may feel and act; not his emotions or feelings. But his responses and defense of the song seemed to not support that. Making the song something of a mystery.
  8. I've grown to more than appreciate the record, I've had this theory--especially after the village sessions leaked--that if Axl released CD as a solo record, and dropped the GN'R name for it, he would've had more control and a green light from the label. I'm not one of those people that thinks it's dumb for a band to continue in that manner (with only a sole original member) but I just think such high expectations don't mix well with wanting to create such an experimental new sound for a band
  9. Perfect crime is probably my favorite opener, but that's not going to happen, maybe Pretty Tied Up?
  10. Axl pretty much is to blame for the majority of bad shit to happen to GN'R, not that a lot of fans of would deny anything like that. But, frankly if Axl didn't have the rights signed over to him, for the name, in the '90s and the band dissolved in 1996, the future probably would've been a lot brighter for GN'R. I think that Axl would've had a much much better opportunity to release CD as a solo record--a true solo record. With the Guns name attached to it, the village sessions and experimental second album were pretty much never going to get off the ground the way Axl wanted. Hell
  11. Best scenario we get 1 more record.. that's it; live material wise, we may never get anything. Realistically, people must act accordingly
  12. Anyone listen to the vinyl mix and can compare it to the original record? How does it compare? What are your thoughts on the mix of the UYI tracks, and the Appetite tracks to the L&L remaster?
  13. I posted this in the general musings thread earlier, but I'm glad Lars isn't bitter about it. I know that in the Inside the music about Metallica, all the guys started shitting on Axl and GN'R really badly for the Montreal riot. I'm not sure how true the claims are about the sound system being messed up, and not being set up correctly/Axl may have been sick or something like that IIRC. Either way, a cool time in music, how often could you see Body Count, Metallica, and Guns in a single show? The UYI was such a massive event, I'd love to write a book about it
  14. Sony used some smart strategies, specifically selecting DVD and Blu Ray as the format for their consoles, and pretty much have a lead in console sales because of their IPs. It's all good for me as a PC fan, competition has meant that microsoft is spreading the Xbox platform to PC gaming and now I can play Master chief collection on my gaming rig 😎
