Atlas was a little underwhelming, in my opinion. Hardschool lived up to the interest and Perhaps was a great surprise. State of Grace and Eye on You were interesting, and good, experimental tracks. 

I don’t know, I don’t think many artists make songs like Atlas. Not sure where these kind of songs come from. It has that magic you can’t explain.

Hardschool is essential for that old school GNR thing. 

I really liked State of Grace. Perfecto Axl vocal. The range of the vocal. Has that Stones thing where it starts out slow and builds. Eye on You isn’t complete. 

Perhaps is great. It’s a little heavy to be a single but like a UYI track. Atlas and Perhaps are UYI 3 type songs. Not as catchy as Yesterdays but not as epic Breakdown. Next level of songwriting, how I see Catcher. Argue about the recording but the songs are there.

Oh, OK, cool. 'Cause you didn't like those records, I guess GNR shouldn't release anything because it may not be up your standards. Ha! It isn't like a terrible album is gonna ruin the legacy that's already there. Same as a myriad of lineup changes never did. Chinese is as good as anything GNR has put out short of Appetite, which I consider the greatest rock and roll record ever.

I didn't say whether they should release an album or not. I just stated the reason an album from these guys doesn't excite me.  Personally I would than no album than a shitty album but they can do whatever the fuck they want and I would never tell a band whether they can release music or not. I also didn't say anything about a legacy...

Nothing worse than someone putting words in my mouth.

Chinese as was released in 08 was as good as the illusions?.

I did laugh......

The 2000 intentions could have been the proper successor to the illusions.

In defense of Tenderness, I've found in it a good turning point regarding musical direction. Also some songs are actual really good. I'd rather have some mellowed songs with a Country vibe than some industrial shit coming from guys in their nearly 60's.

The recent leaks of 2000s-era CD mixes does really highlight that the studio record is sorely lacking in the bass department. But yeah, I stand by my statement. I enjoy Chinese Democracy as much as either Illusion record.

If added Going Down, Silkworms and a reworked Oh My God, plus add vocals to some of the other songs like Oklahoma and Dummy and CD would have been brilliant.

I would LOVE to get a set of "GNR, 1995 - 2007". All of the stuff everyone worked on that's never been released. I'd buy that in a heartbeat. 

This would probably be my dream release tbh. That's why it's never gonna happen lol.

If we could get a new album in the vein of Led Zep III that would be ace - a mix of mellow/acoustic and some rocking numbers. Wichita Lineman shows what that style of song could bring.

If they are just going to rework CD II, we should at least get a Red Panda box set with all the original versions before Slash shits all over Robin's work. And can you imagine what Melissa would do with Pitman's parts? Chills (not the good kind!).

Don't forget Buckethead's parts. I really hope they keep him on most, if not all of the material intended for release. On the bright side, I believe Axl would be more likely to keep old Bucket parts over Bumble's parts.

Why oh why did they not use the remix vocals on the original This I Love¬†track.....ūüôĄ

I believe Axl's vocals on the This I Love remix were recorded after CD was released.

I actually was not fond of how he sounded on the remix version. His rasp sounded very forced. He was screaming almost the entire time. I'd rather have a more natural clean singing Axl than a forced screaming rasp Axl. He seems to be able to only achieve that when screaming, which is most of the AC/DC stuff. Still sounds good, but would get old, especially if he sings an entire album like that. I like a good mix, like in Hardschool, of course that was recorded 20 years ago so who know what he sounds like now in the studio.

Do you really think that they will be keeping Buckethead's parts now that the REAL GNR lead guitarist is back?  No disrespect  to you, but thank God Buckethead is gone. Should have  never been in GNR to begin with.

it's Slash though. Axl might want to exclusively use him or at the very least have him rerecord the rest of the work done by past players but I guess anything is possible.

Tenderness is so fucking good, i don't understand the complaints. So what if it isn't rock! Duff has improved his lyrical output and has created something interesting in Tenderness. I would take Tenderness over a generic SMKC album any day.

What would be the thing that would excite you the most in reading about the album before its release?; as in like, one of the band members' descriptions.  Mine would be- assuming the quote would come from Duff- "it's basically Use Your Illusion III."

"It's one of the best things we've ever created together. And Axl sounds incredible there. Can't wait for it to be released. Oh and it's due within 3 months..."

I can see Slash add parts or re-recording most of these songs, then adding 4-5 new songs to the pot.
