The "New Album" Thread - Susan McKagan says album is coming

I mean yeah they can do that, but by splitting them into 2 discs/albums that's already a really strong theme for each album. The "Axl" side of the album could be way more experimental, include industrial type sections in songs etc., Axls artistic vision fullfilled + whole other album of "classic" sound GNR songs all at once. Just seems like a win win for me instead of releasing one album with many modern type Axl songs interspersed that many fans wouldn't be fans of or don't want in a GNR album.

I guess, but not all of it is modern sounding. Even less out of place when Slash and Duff play the material. They've played 8 Chinese tunes live. All the tunes sound like they can go together in the same album with newer/Slash based tunes. Hard School played by Slash could fit with a song like Slither for example on the same album maybe.

we haven't heard all the unreleased Chinese tunes and we haven't heard what they still didn't write together. I think after you've got all the pieces it's easier to put together the puzzle.

I like the idea of being on my death bed, saying "just refresh that page one more time for me....I'm pretty sure that insider was full of shit, but I want to be totally sure....." 

Axl is close to 60 Reunion is now over 4 years old The last unheard new song was played in 2006 The last studio album was in 2008 The last new song before that in 1999 Every s

You could be right. But you could also be drunk. Just like me, I mean we are both sitting at home in quarantine, talking about the way GNR should sequence their double album release. When it's highly probable not even enough material for a single album has been worked on, or will ever see the light of day lmao.

A double album comprised of mostly CD-era material, with some polishing and a handful of entirely new songs would be amazing.

Call them Guns N' Roses and Guns N' Roses II

I just hope, I really hope they keep at least some of Bucket and Brain's parts. Bucket's work on the reworked OMG, and Soul Monster is amazing. I also liked some of the Bucket and Brain instrumentals from the Village leaks, but I doubt the latter will ever surface officially unless Axl completed them since then with vocals, etc.

Honestly, they should just drop the whole “CD Sessions” on Spotify right now to give something for their quarantine fans to enjoy, specifying that those sessions are to not be mislead as the first new Axl and Slash release in a thousand years and then focus on a completely new album.

Axl solo happened 20 years ago and it failed almost miserably, its time to move on.

But its fat Alex we’re talkin bout so... never gonna happen.

I had a dream last night that GNR dropped a new album, the cover was literally just Pearl Jam's Gigaton.

The album had around 18 songs and was 1hr and 22m long, tracklist was something like:

1. Hardschool - performed on Jimmy Kimmel with the next song shortly before the album release

2. All or Nothing (feat. Big Sean) - wtf?

3. Atlas - titled just like that

4. Quick Song

4. Cuban Skies - 9 mins long

5. First Right - around 5 mins long

6. ?

7. ?

8. ?

9. Devious Bastard

10. Tonto

11. ?

12. ?

13. Real Doll.com

14. ?

15. Chicken Cobbler

16. Time Attack

17. Soul Monster

18. ?

Sadly no Perhaps or The General. This quarantine is really messing with my head, somebody help me

It’s a little weird. Intro is the same, but the rest of the song has some of those extra effects from RIR2001 as well as a new guitar track from Bucket doing like these deep, metal-sounding power chords and a new lead guitar part from Bumble towards the end that sounds really bad. Oh, also the bridge was put through an AM filter and all of the parts were removed except for Axl’s voice and a weird hip-hip loop of some kind.

Nah not gonna happen. Not with Slash back in the group. Which is a good thing.

There's not even any guarantee that there will be any redone CD stuff; it might be all new ideas. Who knows.

Wishful thinking Slashite. Axl ain't throwing away the second part of his masterpiece for whatever bland cock rock riffs Slash put in his GNR folder.

That's quite the dream there. Hopefully the question mark tracks aren't covers

So you know for certain that there's CD tunes on it? Do you happen to have a release date too? :lol:

I know for certain that in 2016 Axl at the China exchange seemed pretty set on keeping said material, and seemed very ambivalent about Slash and Duff contributing to it. I know you're just dying for an Axl version of Mind Your Manners, but try to be realistic. I do expect Slash to replace and/or mutilate Robin and Bucket's parts, but I don't think Axl is going to be inspired to write new material to the garbage Slash comes up with these days.

This is probably my main concern about reworking Chinese material. I'd love to hear them fully finished,.but based on almost everything we've heard the last few years, Slash consistently make CD songs worse as opposed to better(This I love being the main example). I hope it isn't the case, but I don't see this changing when it comes to potentially reworked material on the "new album".

I never said that there wouldn't be any CD stuff, I said there's no guarantee and who knows. That means we don't know, not me, not you. And until they release something we still don't know. It's all speculation.

Cheers for not understanding what I said the first time around :facepalm:

We can speculate anything, but some are more realistic than others. I think the idea of there being no CD songs on the next album, which you raised as a possibility, is comically absurd.

I think Slash may was always uneasy to play CD songs. It makes sense to me that he felt those are not GNR songs, and he don't want to "fix" it by really making them justice (save for CD and Better, I guess).

If he just rework CD-era demos with his and Duff's input, it should be a different thing IMO.

Hardschool being rehearsed means if something comes out, we will have some reworked CD

It could also mean that if they (Axl) still strictly follow the policy of not letting us know anything new until it's time - because of the CD era leaks - they would have thrown HS down to us, as it's a new song for casuals on the one hand and yet not a new song, because it's 20 years old and we've already heard it. I.e. if ya wanna tease some "new", exciting stuff, why not go with a tune that's already leaked? 
It's not necessarily saying anything about he album itself though.
