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


Recommended Posts

I decided against pulling the trigger on the things I wanted to ask, but it is incredibly poor on their part if they didn't plan on recording a few shows professionally with the intention of releasing to celebrate and capitalize on the huge success of the Not In This Lifetime Tour. We know of at least 2 that were professionally filmed, but Fernando stated a few years back that the Troubadour was only filmed for personal use only and there were no plans to release it.

I think we can write off this year for new music and sadly the vast majority of next year, as I can't see them releasing something outwith the Christmas market.

I guess we don’t know what the trigger was for the NITL release he has confirmed. It SHOULD be a given that one of the biggest tours in history has a documented release.

Hi - are you talking about the initial CD vinyl release (which had issues), or the overall release (the only issue I know about is in Scraped)? Where are there skips other than Scraped?

Not trying to argue. Generally interested if I've missed something. 

Idk I actually don’t have the vinyl. Just heard that there are mistakes all over the vinyl version of the album lol.

I have an American pressing and the only issue I was aware of was the ‘inner groove distortion’ meaning some tracks sound dreadful. I wasn’t aware of any Scraped skips?!

I've only listened to my vinyl a few times, and I'm not knowledgable enough to explain specifics issues, but there were many moments that just sounded ... off ...

You’d think Axl would care about that sorta thing, but I guess not lol.

It’s just another example of the label forcing the album out without due care (CD booklet full of mistakes/cancelling the alternative covers). Neither wonder Axl was pissed off.

I totally get why they wanted it out - absolutely no reason to do it so shoddily though.

Has anyone mentioned this comment by Fernando over on Reddit?

"My priority is, music, tour, merch, happiness. All of which will be taking place next year."

Translated from Fernando-language to english, that means: "My priority is no new music, a never-ending nostalgia tour, loooooads of merch, my happiness because I earn a shit load of money for doing basically nothing."

His priorities are money, designing awful clothes cause he doesn't have any sense of good taste (see how he dresses), wasting his time on Reddit, being an asshole and blaming everyone for his failure as a manager

@Fernando probably couldn't give two shits about new music. Why would he?

Eh I'll believe it when it actually happens.

As far as a NITL live DVD goes, it's too little too late imo. Should've happened 2 years ago.

Scraped has a vocal skip where they fucked up the edit in the studio. It's on all versions not just the vinyl. From memory it is in the second verse - they've clearly tried to either auto tune or patch together two takes and there's a glitch in the vocal. Terrible QC that it made it to the released version, goes to show how quickly they rushed the final version (ironic really given it was 8+ years in the making).

Crazy - never noticed! And yeah another example of a botched release.

I always assumed that was intentional? Are we certain that is not intentional?

Fuck @Fernando. Useless scumbag

I'm with you.

It's too bad Irving Azoff didn't pan out. Funny how Axl was claiming Azoff was scheming to get the old band back together, and to tour with the reunited Van Halen.

I have no doubt that Azoff would have gotten new music from the band if he was in charge. Fernando just makes decisions, or lack thereof, based on Axl's feelings on a given day.

I always thought is was intentional. A little "wtf" moment if you catch it.

Who knows. But it always sounded like an error to me. The kind of thing that isn't obvious (which is why many people dont notice it, so you can understand why QC didn't spot it) but still wrong. I can't imagine for the life of me why they would do that on purpose. It literally fucks up the whole word, you can't understand what he is saying (try reading the lyrics while listening). It's clear they've done some extensive vocal processing on the song, and I just think they cocked this bit up and nobody noticed until it was too late.
