Riot shields or bust.  

Cant beleive its taken the band 3 months to do this, and Fernando only agreeing to do something like this when told to him directly by the fans. If GNR want to look at being a top tier band this

LARGER! LARGER TEXT!!! I CAN'T READ!!!

Just to think they have years/decades of that type of footage....

Great taste. Think they have to go longer or promote it more during the week to get the eyeballs they’re expecting.

Yes, we kind of knew it would be those three songs from the length and the trailer.

I enjoyed it a lot. I'm really looking forward to watching more of these and I would really love for them to have some kind of DVD release of the NITL tour. So many great memories :wub:

But, yes, only a bit of Axl. It was like the Slash show. Not that I find that very upsetting. But looking forward to seeing more of Axl next time.

Yup. I was just settling in with a drink and snacks. :rofl-lol:

lets be dead honest here, this just shows he is really self conscious about the way he has been singing. just look at the songs they choose for the stream

Sorry ... I won't be kissing the band's ass because they graced us with 3 songs from 1 show in 2019 ... I didn't enjoy that at all and it just makes me more pissed at the fact that there's currently still an on-going purge of ANYTHING Guns N' Roses music on the internet .... 

Again literally "complaints, complaints, complaints" :facepalm:

Aaaaaaand let the complaining begin....

Honestly, it's a good way to make sure we never get anything like this again.

I will say, my bitching aside, if this becomes a weekly thing and paves the way for lots of proshot GNR videos from different eras and years I am all for it and think its a step in the right direction

 

If its a few week thing and fizzles out with just 2017-2020 videos, then its fucked

Brief thoughts:

1) It's So Easy was painful. Literally. The fleeting moments of rasp actually sounded like it was painful for Axl. He was making an effort though so I can't fault him in particular, but it sounded rough. Honestly I give them credit for releasing this as is with such a dry mix.

2) Chinese Democracy sounded really good. I was surprised to be honest.

3) Great version of DTJ. I like that this was a version where they all nailed the intro. There have been a few versions where Axl came in early, or Duff started too late, and so on. This was dead on.

That gun shot sound at the end was WAY TOO LOUD on headphones! Ahh

This, it was really loud.

Otherwise this was really good. That was nice. Let's hope we get like three songs per week, we will get sort of a best of NITL that way. This really rocked.

 

I think the sound mix was good. Maybe the bass needed more body, but other than that it sounded good to me. That was a solid CD and DTJ

What sucks is I doubt they leave it up. I think if you don't tune in, you're basically SOL.

 

Edit: Never mind. I refreshed the page and it's there.

This band really seems to lack any cohesion. Slash's playing is all over the place and surprisingly sloppy. 

I used to think that the problem with the previous soundboards we had was the lack of mixing, but no, it's the band.

Compare it to the 2010 band, this version of GNR is very sloppy... racing through the songs (playing faster doesn't mean more energy, it usually just means that the musicians don't play it half as well they could at a slower pace). If you were blind folded and both bands came on one after each other, I don't think many would say the current version is better.

Anyway... for this turn of the "select cuts" it's not the greatest of starts, BUT it's a start nonetheless! definitely room for improvement on the sound if nothing else. If you compare it to what other major acts have released this sounds like a soundboard gig from your local pub band... not the highest grossing touring band :P

Cool stuff if its repeated a few times with other shows! (And "better" crowds?) Video editing/ angle choices were so weird to me though...but great Slash/ Duff close ups!

Lmao the crowd did look dead.

We need so vids from South America for their crowds.

A couple notes about the production quality:

- To properly get the sound of a concert you need to add "room tone" to the video, which this doesn't have. It makes the music sound bigger, grabs crowd noise and will make it sound less like a soundboard recording.

- The editing is really lacking here. Granted, the last time they edited together footage from the Appetite for Democracy residency, it had Michael Bay levels of cuts and was seizure inducing. This could have to do with the lack of cameras available. There appears to be three "hero" cameras on Axl, Slash and Duff and then the way overused wide camera, and not much else (I guess the drum attached camera counts, though it's shaky as hell). This video appears to be edited by a non-Guns fan as it misses key moments like the "Fuck off!" part of ISE. The edit lacks a lot, and fans will most notably notice a lack of Axl shots. 

Glad to have some new stuff, regardless. But there's a real lack of professionalism in the compilation of this video.

We don't  have to complain  to much about it. It was pretty decent and if they post 3 songs every week, that's cool! 
But the video and audio mix are strange... To much static image on the giant screen, and where's Axl ??? We dont have any close up and he is really low in the mix.

 

Nice effort Fernando!

I thought all three were painful! The rhythm section was literally the only enjoyable part for me ....
