There is some rumors circulating that State of grace is an early version of the General - it could make sense based on some descriptions of the General and Axls high pitched screams, I guess they could have changed a lot of the lyrics and intros etc. 

Any opinions?

Bill Brasky is a troll and a liar.

State of Grace is my fav of the leaks would be gutted if we never hear a final version ... But this is GNR

Aye, I agree, it's definitely my fave too. Really like that track to be honest. Most of the other songs/ideas are fairly underwhelming to me. Though I think we are now legally obliged to say that Atlas Shrugged is possibly the greatest piece of music never released!

Heard this rumour a while back it makes sense to me if you compare the vocal pattern to the cell phone recording it is similar. 

Been saying that for years too... Def can hear the same patterns from that audio phone call. Especially the "oh my love what can it be blinded by grace with me",  part. Would love to hear a final mix one day too...

What's the general view on Nothing??! I've heard it sounds like elevator music!

Sounds like one of those songs that was already downloaded on a phone when you bought it back in 2003.

Nothing is nothing special, as others have said.

It would take a lot to make it a good song as it existed then.

I assume it has been improved since 2000.

I can hear a similarity with Billionaire but not SOG

Yeah I made a post last year about the similarities between Billionaire & The General ... Definitely interesting.

Before it leaked, someone described it as "GNR meets Pink Floyd."

Man it was disappointing to finally hear it... :lol:

I actually really like that song for what it is. The beat is fun. And I think Axl's vocals are astounding ... Although I think every vocal track from Axl is lol

The vocals are a scratch take, and they sound like it. WTTJ, Coma, TWAT, those are astounding vocals...

The version that we heard sounds like such an early version that I don't even count it when I think of the leaked songs with vocals. Same with Quicksong, although instrumentally QS sounds a lot more finished than Nothing.

The vocals remind me of Look At Your Game Girl. And you don't count it? Sorry but any vocals from Axl should be counted no matter what stage of completion they're in, given the amount of recorded vocals we have from him and the time in which it's been since the last release of said vocals.

He's mumbling and singing the same few lyrics and 'oohs' and 'aahs' for 3-4 minutes... no I don't count it. The version we heard is more of an idea than it is a song. Do you honestly listen to in playlists or anything?

I never thought of Nothing as being with scratch vocals, but it makes some sense. Quick Song is obvious, and State Of Grace sounds like scratch vocals too, from a recording quality standpoint, unless that was the intent for effect on that song. The instrumental for State Of Grace sounds good, only missing a guitar solo, assuming one was intended for that song. Axl's vocals sound like they were recorded with a cheap mic at his PC, for the most part in that track.

State Of Grace with polished vocals, and a Buckethead or Robin guitar solo would be amazing. Axl's singing at the end is TWAT ending like good.

Nothing is 100% scratch vocals.  He just singing the melody to get it recorded, then will finish with real lyrics later.  It couldn't be more obvious based on the repeated lyrics and the mumbled section.

While the music portion isn't great and wouldn't be happy with that as the final version, it does remind me a bit of Zeppelin (D'yer Mak'er), which I like.

Would be great to hear Gary Sunshine's take on it. Or even an isolated Paul Tobias rhythm track with Chris Pitman on shakers. I mean, can you imagine the public reaction if that shit leaked!

Yes, when I'm in the mood to listen to it I put it on, as I said, I enjoy it. Would listen to "Nothing" 10 times in a row before listening to "Rock the Rock"

Whatever floats your boat man. :thumbsup:

I don't listen to RTR or Nothing, but if I were gonna pick one I'd go with RTR because at least it's a complete song.

A world whereupon those are your legitimate options for the day sounds bloody awful! I'd be looking for the gun.

I was just taking a shot at that ridiculous excuse for a "song" that Rock the Rock is because of the extremely odd praise it gets on here when Axl sounds like absolute dog shit and the song is intended for legit children ...
