I swear to God Axl could just put out his favorite version tomorrow on Bandcamp, and we would all buy it this is so fucking stupid. We just want the fucking music because we are fans why is this so fucking hard you wouldn't need to sue everyone if you just put out music.

UMG would have something to say about that. They need to agree to release it and it won’t be on Bandcamp

Let's just make this clear. We will not allow any discussion relating to any correspondence that was intended to be private.  This is none of our business and just as we would want others to resp

Even though the content of the storage locker wasn't intended to be released by its creator, I'm glad I got to hear it. It's music. But private e-mails are another story. As much as curious I am

The soundtrack version is just a demo that the label forced out as a means of showing everyone “hey people, GnR still exists!”

there is a higher-quality version with some extra effects, a new lead guitar track from bumble, and a “stripped down” bridge where axl’s vocals are just over a drum machine loop and nothing else. It leaked last year.

Thanks.  I thought the OMG version leaked in 2018 was poorer quality than the original demo.

Hard School doesn't prove anything (when it comes to a second album with Big Guns on it). It is a rough demo at best. The song has potential, but isn't finished at all.

Atlas is just 1 minute of a song we don't know how the rest sounds and if it is even finished. It has a CITR vibe imo.

People who think Slash and Duff haven't released anything good after GnR are crazy. Velvet Revolver's first record, Contraband, is amazing.

A ballad like Fall To Pieces is just as good - if not better - than anything on Chinese.

And the rockers on that album, like Slither, just blow songs like IRS completely away.

This is why the original Guns N Roses was so amazing, they had all this talent combined in one band.

And don't forget about Izzy...

Of course this is just my opinion.

The really weird part is... I like NiN, I like Marilyn Manson, you would think I would like a more alternative sounding Axl... but I liked him more as a classic rock singer.

I'd rather have another AFD or UYI than a departure from it.

His lower vocal register was nice back in the day... it had a lot of emotion in it, was bluesy... and then he would scream at some point and it fitted the songs.

But nowadays... I feel like he is pushing himself too much. Writing songs which are impossible to sing.

Axl sounded great with AC/DC because the songs are easier.

Keep it simple Axl!

That's my message in a nutshell.

I would probably love a simple acoustic album with Axl, Slash and Duff. Like Seether did, with One Cold Night.

Chinese is way overproduced, and it wrecks the potential the songs had. I loved CITR with Brian May on it, but just hate the album version with Bumble.

TWAT is butchered also, with weird sounding intro and what not.

These songs could have been amazing... but I hardly listen to them anymore because of this.

But I still love VR's Contraband after all these years..

These leaks are making me sad and angry. This would've been SO good in 2000/2001.

Imagine releasing 3 albums of this shit in 2000 like they did with UYI in '91. HO. LY. SHIT. 

Fuck everybody who turned this shit down. 

 

As for Going Down - I love it but it's not a GnR song. It's a Tommy song. It would've been perfect on Village Gorilla Head or One Man Mutiny. Love both those albums.

Would like to hear Axl on lead vocals for going down

Speaking of relying on older material, I wonder if that new rumor is true that there will be like four or five new studio songs lumped with an NITL live album at the end of this year. Would sorta fit with the “EP at the end of the year” rumor from earlier. If that ends up being true, it would mean that the band and/or label feels more comfortable releasing this new stuff alongside Jungle, Sweet Child, and Paradise City.

Could the EP rumour fit in with Terminator movie soundtrack song?

It wasn't a drum machine loop? And it definitely isn't a 'ska section' either (as I've seen suprisingly many people refer to it) - it's a disco beat/guitar riff, just like on the released version.

It is. The leaked OMG is a VERY rough mix that is nowhere near finished. Comments to the contrary are just about personal preference with regards to it being more stripped-down (nothing wrong with that btw). Axl himself said it was a re-record that wasn't taken too seriously.

Spent a little time revisiting the older leaks this morning; it actually made me give a new fondness to Ashba's instrumentals.  :lol:

This is probably biased of me, but I just can't take the names of those tracks. Mi Amour and Ballad of Death are just wayyyyy too cheesy and cliché for me.

I do remember liking one better than the other when they used to play them live though. I just can't get past the names overall though.

What about La Bella Vita? Is that also a stupid name in your opinion? Not trying to sound like a dick, just genuinely curious.

Not a fan of that one either, but again, that's just my opinion.
