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

Adjust your expectations is fan speak for It's not good, but just like it any way!!

We all know he can do better on SCOM... he sounds terrible, I love his voice when he chooses to use it but If this was the first time hearing these songs there's not a chance in hell I'd be a fan of this band. I'm not adjusting my expectations, I expect the musicians I pay exceptionally high ticket prices to sing to a minimum standard, and in my book that SCOM vocal is about a 4/10. I would find it hard to believe he would stand over this and say "I really like how I sound on this".

I enjoyed parts, and I'm glad some of ye enjoyed most or all of it! I'm not trying to change your minds, I'm just saying what I heard.

 

 

I hear you, I paid $250 for GA in 2016 and I would never do it again with the way he sounds. I agree with that assessment of how SCOM sounds. It's just that I haven't heard him sing it any better in 4 years. I don't think he can do any better.

It’s so much more apparent to me the more shows and vids I’ve seen of NITL that the 2006 lineup was the best sounding lineup they’ve had since the original 5. They just don’t sound good together live anymore. None of them. Top to bottom.
 

Wish Finck and Tommy were back. At least there was integrity there. Axl should have trusted his gut and stayed with his hired guns. Slash at times, trying to reinvent things, is just as bad as axl trying to keep the same pitch/tone he used 30+ years ago...they are pushing the performance instead of feeling it. 

Indeed well put. Its very bad.

It's clear this "select" videos are just reunion stuff.

We are still being denied the golden era stuff.

 

It's literally called Not In This Lifetime Selects :lol:

Props for the release. Super flat, though. Bummer. Not sure if it's performance energy or the mix... not sure how you can watch something like this more than once. 

 

No chemistry, no energy, crowd is snoozing.... watching this just stresses me out -- nobody is having fun! 

Back to the 90's we gooooo *whoosh*

I saw this just now.

 

Its a thousand better than the first one. Oh yeah no doubt. I enjoyed it a thousand way more.

Im not gonna say its perfect but never was perfect. Like always. 

Some details i saw:

- Very good sound. Sound mix... idk. Its sound like GnR live. 

- Did FF almost cutted the Slash solo in RQ? 

- i would buy a Download bluray. Definitely.

- Axl was acurate. I dont like scom live, but Slash saves the song like a monster. 

- i repeat, this is a better good job. Take my money on this kind of shit. The first sucked so much that this its almost a 1991.

AXl sounded like this before AXLDC and then thunder struck and we were all like WTF!!!!! Why cant he sing like that for GNR?!?!?!?!?

There is no question in my mind that he can still kill it with rasp when he wants to and his natural range/voice is as good as ever.

I would pay more money to hear half the set with ACDC AXL than three hours of MICKEY.

I felt different when I first heard it yesterday. I thought I liked the first video more and I'm surprised most people think it's an improvement. Seemingly because I place more importance on guitar than on vocals maybe. But then again, Axl had his moments on this but overall it's still not a good performance imo. For the first video they choosed songs where he sings with his deeper voice and it fits better imo. On this one he sucked most of the time. But even Slash managed to fuck up a few parts, like improvising the second SCOM solo or playing a boring RQ middle part. With The Conspirators he takes you to a journey when playing this, but with Guns he doesn't have the time to do it, instead, he has to share the time he's got with Fortus who places a strange sounding odd solo. Really weird. Otherwise Slash shined on Slither as on the main solo and outro of SCOM. 

That was my first impression but I have to give it another listen.

Yeah. I'm watching now and enjoying the video very much. I've seen and enjoyed 5 shows in 2018, so I know what to expect.

Read a few 'anyone who likes this is deaf and blind' comments, and others calling that 'healthy debate' and decided not to bother with the rest of the thread :lol:

I feel like a fangirl again though. Still hoping for a NITL release.

Thanks Fernando for putting this up. You see some of us are grateful :P

Nitl can be good or bad like the first release. This is a good job. Get them a bonus. A stimulus check and make it happen.

While I still don't understand the choices (why not 2016??), this is way better than the first one. And Slash is a beast, I'll keep saying that till I die. The band used to be mostly about Axl, but now... 

Edit: The sound of drums is horrible though, and I can barely hear them.

At this point I’m convinced that the Lebeis family, after years of telling Axl he still sounds amazing, have bought into their own lie and can’t tell the difference anymore. I can’t understand why they’re choosing some of Axl’s worst performances and why they would highlight YCBM and SCOM in the same video, along with choosing SCOM for the Super Bowl show. I almost wouldn’t highlight YCBM period, I know it’s a classic but it’s embarassing at this point and shouldn’t even be in the setlist. 
 

Actual video, sound was way better than last week. Slither pro shot is exciting. I just wish Axl/TB would put more effort into disguising Axl’s weak moments since these always incite hundreds of “Axl sounds like mickey” throughout social media and youtube comments and have the potential to go viral in a negative way. I may be alone on this but I wouldn’t have even minded some overdubbing here :shrugs:

I read the comments first so did not know what to expect.  I enjoyed it and found Axl to be more animated then I expected, I have not been to a GnR concert yet, and after seeing this I would definately go.  I know it would not be the same as the early days but I think its all about expectations, it is 30 years since the beginning.  Thanks Fernando.

Maybe that was the idea :-)

At this point they either get it sounding good one way or another (possibly rearrange it, or change the key)... they can't drop it because it's their biggest song... but fuck, if it was based on how well the perform it? I would drop the song in a second along with 90% of their major hits. The set would filled with deep cuts so we'd be over the moon!

SCOM could be performed acoustically for a tour, would be something different and might make the guys excited about performing it. I guess playing a song for the 10000th time might be a bit of a drag... but watching 100000 people jump and sing to it cannot not be amazing, no matter how many times you see it!

Maybe their biggest song, but i doubt all the hardcore fans (of which seem to be a minority) arnt buying tickets to hear SCOM. I cant imagine the casuals going to further concerts to hear it. I think all casuals have saw the band in the last 4 years and that ticks GNR off, on any bucket list. Which brings us back to the hardcore fans. I would be happy to sacrifice SCOM for any illusion deep cuts.

YCBM, coma and TIL should be removed from the setlist.
