  1. I would absolutely love it if Izzy is on a new record, especially if that mid-90s stuff he was working on for GN'R got used, assuming Izzy didn't use all that stuff up already on other projects.
  2. I wish everyone would give Axl a bit of a break on the live vocals. I guarantee you no one is more down on his inability to bring it for three hours every night (like he used to be able) than Axl is. He still goes out there and gives it 100%. Goes out on time. No real drama has gone on as far as we know since Duff and Slash agreed to come back. I think a studio record will give Axl a chance to show he's still more solid on vocals than we think. Honestly, as I think about it, a studio album being able to better let Axl's vocal capabilities of today shine might be one of the main reasons I'm hoping they do a record. Obviously a new record would feature a lot of old unreleased vocals, but I bet we'd still get some new, recently recorded vocals as well
  3. If Hard Skool released on either of the Illusions it would be viewed as the "solid tune that is deserving of being on a good GN'R record" reception it deserves rather than what it faces being released today in this situation
  4. An EP would be awesome because they wouldn't release an EP without an album to follow it up. So instead of getting a just a new album, you get an EP as well to tide you over until the album
  5. I'm curious to hear how different Hard Skool sounds from the full song leak. From what I understand, the full leak sounds like an incomplete song, almost like a song concept or demo.
  6. I am so freaking excited to hear this song finally finished!!!!!!!!!!
  7. Wow. Axl has just been a class act every day with every challenge the band has come across during the NITL era. I'm completely impressed and proud of him. We can complain all day about vocals and lack of new music and I think the latter is worth discussing but I'm just proud of how he has been out there working with Duff and Slash
  8. I know most prefer 2 but I honestly like 1 more. I think some of the filler tracks are quite underrated, particularly; Bad Obsession and Bad Apples. I think Don't Cry and November Rain are some of the best ballad rock singles ever made. Even if you find November Rain "corny", I think the song deserves respect. Coma is a monster of a masterpiece. There isn't a single track on UYI 1 that reaches the lows of UYI 2; Get in The Ring and My World Looking back, I'm surprised that for so long UYI 2 got the reputation of being the better of the two albums. UYI 2 has arguably my two fav GN'R tracks with KOHD and Locomotive though. I also think Breakdown might be GNR's most overlooked track. I call Breakdown overlooked because I feel like it when it comes to GN'Rs fantastic deep cuts (Coma, Locomotive, etc), I feel like Breakdown is mentioned the least I love the Illusions. Fantastic albums
  9. Broken glass and cigarettes, Writing on the wall, It was a bargain for the summer, And I thought I had it all.
  10. This is fascinating. It's just great seeing those two on solid terms again. I've read a lot over the years that some people say they never were that close in the band, and maybe compared to Axl's friendship with Duff and Izzy, Axl isn't that close to Slash and vice versa. But maybe people downplay their friendship too. They are one of the most iconic duos in music and I know Axl's voice isn't what it used to be but I'm proud of Axl going out every night and making it work with Slash. I hope the two of them are having a great time.
  11. Do we know when Axl called Slash? This isn't referring to the 2015ish phone call to Slash's mom to get the ball rolling on the NITL era? I remember reading in a few places that Slash drove to Axl's home around 2006 and yelled outside at the gate that he needed to talk to Axl or something to that extent
  12. Albums having bonus tracks placed at the end is a common thing. And I think generally people consider bonus tracks to be kind of gimmicky and to not necessarily being as meaningful to an album as the "official" (non-bonus) songs of an album. UYI II ends with Estranged or maybe it ends with You Could Be Mine and you get Don't Cry (with alternative lyrics) and My World as bonus songs thrown on at the very end. You Could Be Mine had already been released before UYI I and II through it being part of Terminator II, particularly part of the marketing of the movie. Do you see You Could Be Mine as the official end to UYI II or do you see it as another bonus song thrown on at the very end of the album like Don't Cry Alt and My World? Do you see Estranged as the real closer to UYI II? Or do you not see Don't Cry Alt and My World as bonus tracks and consider My World to be the real ending to the UYI II album?
  13. That song is a masterpiece. It's so heavy, trippy, the lyrics are amazing. One of GN'R's (particularly Slash and Axl) finest moments. I think it's really cool Axl said he wanted to include Coma on occasion on the NITL tour because he knew it would make Slash happy.
  14. Yes, I love Slash's sound on this. With all respect to Axl, if Axl's lyrics were a bit more reigned in here, this could be much more than a "lol, Axl sure loves to give people the middle finger" sort of song. I like the song. I liked it as Silkworms. But this feels like a "joke" song to me and I think it could have been more than that.
  15. I don't think he's flawless and I'm not going to say I "love him" But from a music standpoint, I love him because hearing Don't Cry and November Rain as a kid played a role in shaping how I viewed music, rock and the world
  16. I've always felt CITR is a fantastic song and one of Axl's best from a songwriting perspective. This might not be the thread for it, but ChiDem has some fantastic songs on it (IMO) and I wonder if it just wasn't ever given a chance due to the circumstances around it (the GN'R name, the time it took to make and the expectations that brought, people mainly wanting at the very least Slash back)
  17. There was a review for the UYIs I read once that made a great point that touches on this. The review reflected on WTTJ's writing sensibilities with its line; feel my serpentine Vs Get in the ring: **** you, suck my ******** dick (and I actually prefer the UYIs over AFD, but I've always loved the point made here) Edit: Also, I was not aware that Brian May was on Atlas
  18. A new album wouldn't be about airplay or modern-day mainstream attention (thought it would get some, like the semi-reunion and NITL tour has). It would be for rocks fans, rock history/legacy and GN'R fans
