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

If Perhaps and Hardschool are on the next album, do you think they will be better or worse (mixing and mastering aside since what we heard were rough mixes) than the village versions from 2000?

I’m fairly confident the vocal takes will be the same, or mostly so.

I'm confident that Slash and Duff (and Richard!!) will do a great job on the CD era songs. And if it's really Frank playing drums on SOYL, then that's promising too. 

What worries me the most are the new songs, I'm afraid we may get some crappy and generic SMKC tunes if Slash doesn't step up. The solos on Livin' The Dream were good, I liked them, and I'm sure that Slash has some "big guns" saved for Gn'R. 

Also, it could be interesting to hear Duff's ideas, I'd love one or two songs similar to what we hear on Tenderness. I really enjoyed that album!

 

I'm 99% sure the album is going to live up to the hype. They won't dissapoint (if they release it :D )

Grandma's hamster has never been in safer hands.

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....."

Improvising live is one thing but I reckon working on an ‘unreleased track’ which 99% of public haven’t even heard of would see Slash step up IMO - this is true for all the unreleased Village songs.

Problem is the remaining 1% who DO know the Village sessions will likely struggle....I just don’t see ANYONE beating the Perhaps solo. Which is fine - happy to have a couple of versions. 😂

I sure hope so, though the next eventual album, if mostly CD2 era stuff we will not have to worry too much about bad songs.

Subsequent albums with a heavier Slash influence, could definitely be an issue. I did very much like his 2010 solo album though. That's what we need, with Axl.

that's the best one for me. Slash on it could be killer

I believe Axl's vocals on that version of the song, a majority anyways are scratch vocals, in other words placeholder until proper vocals are recorded. A buddy of mine said it sounded like a cheap mic was used too, unless that was some sort of desired effect. Sounds like Axl recorded the lower notes on a laptop right after waking up.

Yeah, cuz CD was such a huge hit without Slash. :lol:

 

Slash will elevate anything Axl presents to him. It’s what he does.

Foo Fighters were a really good rock band until mid-2000’s but have really lost it IMO. Yeah they churn out a fair amount of material but problem is that the quality is seriously lacking n most of it now. 🤷🏼‍♂️

Wasting light was a fantastic album, but agree, since then it's been mostly filler. However there's 2/3 good tracks on each album and I'd kill for 2/3 good songs every 2/3 years from guns!

they dont have to drop a full album this year with a good single and video im happy plus a NITL blu ray. They can wait for the full album next year if they so want to tour it.

Exactly. Like a normal band. 1 single and video now. then the NITL dvd. Then a second single around xmas with a video. Then a 3rd one in late january before a feb/march release date.  album is out say 2 months before a tour so every fan has it and you play the new songs live in May. That would make total sense. This is GnR though. Probably get nothing for 2 years then they'll drop a triple album surprise release that has so much material, nothing sticks. Actually what am I saying. That'll never happen

I guarantee the vocal takes would be identical. At worst a few overdubs (as per Rhiad, SOD)

CD has generally positive reviews, and was certified platinum. 

A lack of Slash was not the biggest issue with CD.

I agree with you. The lack of Izzy was the biggest problem with CD.

From what Myles is saying, it seems like SMKC is just starting to develop ideas for a new album. It doesn't seem like it'll be out next year. 

https://www.blabbermouth.net/news/slash-featuring-myles-kennedy-and-the-conspirators-are-working-on-new-material/

"[We've been] working on new material off and on for years, really. I mean, since we did the last run, which was — geez, how long has it been now? I don't even remember. Everything is just kind of running together! [Laughs] But, there's always new ideas starting to bloom. Due to the state of things, as far as getting that material out, we're just going to have to wait and see. But there are always ideas in the pipeline."

Wasting Light was OK actually - White Limo was really good. I’m struggling with 2/3 per album though. Totally agreed re GNR....even a happy  compromise is a series of EPs over the next few years 😂!

That’s the thing - whilst it underperformed in terms of units shifted, critically it did really well for the most part.

The biggest issue for me was the lack of promotion on Axl's part and the shoddy release of the album from the label with a booklet full of typos despite one being available that was error free. So much more could have and should have been done to promote stellar fucking work that a lot of players worked hard on, Axl included, over a period of roughly 10 years. Mental. I hope they get it right with whatever they do next.

 

I couldn't have said it better. Most casual listeners couldn't tell who's playing what on the album anyways, all they want or recognize is Axl.

To any casual fans who bought a copy of CD out of curiosity, and had no idea slash left they probably read or looked at the booklet to see if there were any slash photos and slash written lyrics.

What! New merchandise? Woohoo! Where did this info leak. Was there a leaked fake but real photo of a piece of paper that has the details of a new GnR toilet lid or something f’n equally bitchin’ on it? How many Tuesdays until release? 😁

It's so sad how GnR will seemingly sell ANYTHING with a Guns logo slapped on it
