Which do you prefer- 

The original 2008 release 

or a theoretical 2001 release with this track list with a proper mix and fully mastered-

 

Chinese Democracy 

Hard School

State of Grace

The Blues 

Atlas Shrugged 

IRS

Perhaps 

Silkworms 

TWAT

Eye on You

Catcher in the Rye

Riad

Madagascar 

Prostitute

 

Both 14 tracks. Roughly the same length. I think the 2001 edition is the better album

2008 album, solely for the Buckethead solos.  If the 2001 album was released like that and a follow-up with songs like Prom Violence and Dub Suplex were featured on the following album a year or two later, I'd change my mind.

Never thought i'd say it but the 2001 album before Buckethead and Brain is a truy great rock record, especially for the time and overall its just a better record. 2000 Intentions is a coherent album put together with some sort of purpose that all feels organic and written by a band. The 2008 album that came out if the same album but designed by a committee.

why not both?

Chinese Democracy Round 1 - 2001
Chinese Democracy Round 2 - 2008

maybe:
Chinese Democracy Round 3 - 2014

then:
New Album with Slash - 2016
New Album with Slash - 2020

And we all live in happy world with peace and justice

It's a Use Your Illusion situation

Enough material for two discs, only enough *good* material for one disc

Glad we got to hear it all, regardless

 

That's your opinion. I actually enjoyed a majority of the illusion tracks.

I can't imagine anyone but the most hardcore psycho Axl sycophants actually insisting non-ironically that the watered down, neutered package we got in 2008 was better than all the stuff we've just heard which is just teeming with potential.

Maybe the issue here is your lack of imagination. I think the official version is diluted in some ways but improved in others. It has nothing to do with the kind of fan I am.
