So. I might be wrong, but you were fairly bored? 😂

I can’t say I agree with all your points but respect them. 06 and 09/10 were better than OK for me at least.

I’m so bored with this band right now! 😂😂😂

"YOU WANTED A NEW ALBUM? WELL THEY DIDN'T FUCKIN' MAKE IT. SO HERE'S WHAT YOU GET, FROM HOLLYWOOD"

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....."

Imagine that, all we get are chinese makeovers with old vocals. It is possible.

Thing is - we don’t even know what vocal style is on the other stuff. Hardschool was the perfect blend, there is the TIL remix ultra-rasp.....I’d absolutely prefer new vocals as we know he can kill it in the studio and would be more likely to replicate current voice in a live setting

However - beggars can’t be choosers either - and I’ll take whatever.....and that whatever could be absolutely killer anyway.

Also, if there was an actual plan to release something in November, Axl would not step on Angus’ shoes. He has too much respect for him. I doubt they would have announced an official release until after Power Up was out. 
 

Didn't CD come out around the same time as Black Ice though? Also Metallica released Death Magnetic around that time - no-one was concerned about stepping on toes then.

No idea how many million times this has probably been discussed already - but did their musical differences just vanish into thin air? I can't imagine Slash or Axl suddenly wanting to play what they didn't want to play in the mid-90's and all these years that followed. Who would even write such a record - Melissa? Frank? :shrugs: These guys working on songs together just completely exceeds the capacity of my imagination. I don't see them being on the same page musically. But they are surely on the same page when it comes to the financial aspects - so who knows what kind of magic the smell of money may produce.

Just listened to Power Up.....it’s ‘OK’ at best for me. I really don’t think it’s all that different to Black Ice or ROB (I know most of these tunes are from Black Ice era). I think an Axl and Brian ‘duet’ on Demon Fire could have been absolutely killer...Brian flips between two styles.

I think if you take the best tracks from last 3 albums then you can have a great one.

The reason I mention this is that the media seem to be raving about Power Up. Maybe I’m wrong but it’s not a great record. So if GNR get round to releasing the new album then you can bet the media will absolutely rave about it and it’s release regardless of the actual music being brilliant or not.

CD ultimately didn’t have the ‘industrial/electronic’ influence that was suggested it would have.....I really do think if they had taken a proper break and reconvened that they could have got past the issues.

I really don’t see why Slash had to ‘quit’ back in 96....he should have toughed it out and who knows what would have transpired. We will never know.

Id like to think the AC/DC run showed that here is still a commonality between them in a form of rock n roll.

ACDC are releasing the same album over and over again for the last 40 years

I get that argument....but if it was consistently of the quality of Powerage, BIB, HTH etc then I’d be absolutely fine with that!

Say what you want about ACDC but i'm listening the new album and it's quite good. Besides the feeling of listening something new from a band You like is special. We can argue All acdc's albums sounds alike but they rock! Angus interviews about reuniting the members and making a record were great. I think there's no excuses for GNR to release something. I love them crazy but they must do something

Haha, if this is an excuse for not releasing a new record this whole year, GNR might be the most polite band in the world.

That explains why it took them so long, and why there never be another record ever again.

They simply don't want to offend anybody's feelings. Wow, that's so cute. Now they've got my respect.

If GNR were to release something after all this years then why wouldn't Angus be that respectful to postpone ACDCs record ?

Because he doesn't care. He isn't the one worrying about bad album sales. He knows what an ACDC is worth. GNR doesn't. 

I agree with this 100%

That's probably a good thing. Axl 99-2006 vocal is going to beat any vocal he can do age 58 afeter 10 years touring with a spare tyre round the middle. Maybe he'll nail it in the studio with 100 takes and lots of editing, but I can't see him being able to replicate the power lots of the chidem era vocals had.

If that's the best they have to offer they should just retire already.

People used to compete with each other for best sales.

Thats a matter of opinion there. Alot of fans and I mean a higher majority did not like the Chinese stuff or the vocal delivery Axl used.

It would be the best to write new music with everyone's current abilities, rather than using 15 years old vocal recordings. In a live set these wouldn't do the band justice. 

Agree and least it will show some chemistry between the current band.
