ABSUЯD Single released at midnight


Recommended Posts

It's safe to say it's completely 'absurd' to release this 'turd' as a first single.

Man, I'm disappointed. 

Also fucking hate the production.

and the cover with the stupid inverted R :lol:

 

The backwards R makes it edgy

I assume you've never seen Slashs Instagram. There is no doubt in my mind he jerks off to these lyrics

I definitely think when Slash heard this for the first time he really dug the lyrics

You know it's funny cause that's what lots of artists do nowadays, all CAP$ and EDGY song titles. So in that sense, it's actually very modern :lol:

I don't understand this logic complaining of old vocal tracks. Do you want age 58 Axl vocals? Do you think that's an improvement? The older the vocals the BETTER they will sound because Axl was YOUNGER. The further back they were recorded the better they will sound. Fuck, put unreleased 1988 vocals somewhere if you can, GNR.

Exactly!  People will care less when they’re vocal tracks for songs no ones heard yet. Then we will all argue what year they were recorded lol

Can someone politely tell Beta what the difference is between a "new arrangement" and a "new song" lol

 

I mean I get what she is saying for sure, but just this *is* not a new song, just like Slither is not a new song just because Axl is singing on it now and Frank is playing drums instead of Matt Sorum

So Axl's housekeeper is still managing stuff? I thought her son and daughter did that now.  What a joke. 

She could have also answered: "this is indeed a reworked old song, but don't worry, new things will arrive fast."

But I'm just saying whatever I want to.

I keep seeing comments saying this is mixed well but to me, the part where Axl says “screaming fucking banshee” sounds off key, like it’s been pasted over the instrumental in the wrong place. It comes in too early. 
 

The whole thing sounds like a bad cut and paste job that was mixed in GarageBand.

It’s like Axl has gone from being this perfectionist tinkering with songs for 15 years until they’re perfect in his head to “oh fuck it just release that to shut them up”. I mean it’s the same verse repeated 3 times and the word ‘Absurd’ for the chorus ffs…

Me - I can’t fucking believe they released Silkworms, what a terrible choice.

Also me - I should probably listen to it again…. Fuck, it’s kind of good. 

Couldn’t agree more!

Silkworms as the lead single? Truly the darkest timeline.

I joke, I joke. 

New music released!!! Listening closely and the drums are tight! Brain throws in a good performance as usual - def one of the most underrated musicians associated with Chinese in general.

They shifted that specific line digitally for sure, the original Village Sessions leak has that line where it was for the live performances that we are all used to.  It lands now on beat 4 of the previous beat as opposed to right at the start of the beat on the next bar.  It was also like that on the BBF leak so the line has been altered for many years now in the studio

It is in key though, or at least as in-key as it can be with a more yelling vocal delivery in a punk rock vein

The CD album was a bad cut and paste job too. This is not new for Axl

As someone who enjoyed previous versions of silkworm, especially the leaked demos, i am glad they are doing it. All though one of the charms of the song was the electronics which seems to be missing here, as well as the high pitched elephant thingy.
