Was Shadow Of Your Love really planed or AFD? I thought that was planned for Live Like A Suicide. But it was cut away because it sounded too similar to Reckless Life.. 

I think it was just a song from that era - they played it live (It was obviously a Hollywood Rose song).

The AFD boxset also covers Live Like a Suicide so it does fit together.

It will be a complete suicide for gnr

That s what I think too. The song is terrible, doesn t sound like hardrock or gnr at all. I listened to it and thought „are you serious?“ thank you, but if that s the future direction I dont need new music. 
 

Can t imagine that song having any success. But who knows.. some people just buy it cause it says GNR 🤷‍♀️

Yes. But if Hardschool was released first there would be even more doubt and speculation on whether it would be the prequel of a new album or related to a potential UYI reissue. Absurd doesn't make any sense as something related to UYI - they surely wouldn't sell a UYI box set with that.

Exactly - and wouldn't that be great? Another bit of mystery in the GNR world! HS does sound like GN'R, whether from the "Axl direction" or "Slash direction" point of view. Folks would be even more confused! :huh:

I dont get that people saying that this does not sound like GNR - its not like GNR are AC/DC, think of them more like Queen or Beatles - everything is possible! :)

You're right, but those "what's SCOM" people won't agree!

How in the hell did you guys connect this one with a UYI set. Just stop, breathe, drink this one in. Wait for some official shit. 

If a UYI boxset were to be connected to Absurd, it would have been promoted alongside it. Simple as that. I'm sure many of us remember the months-long build up to the AFD boxset and SOYL. This has nothing in common with that strategy. Plus, Axl specifically described this as a 'new Guns N' Roses song', so the implications have nothing to do with UYI.

I think the band will continue to introduce new songs to the setlist and release equivalent studio singles as they progress. Perhaps Hardschool or another song will accompany a new album announcement, but this live/studio approach seems like the way forward.

I noticed this with the Bumble leaks and to an extent the Village leaks that if I didn't pay close attention to the lyrics, it sounded as if Axl says "fucking bitch hate you" instead of "screaming fucking banshee". They've chopped off a bit of the lyric, so it's all I hear on the new one. Is anyone else hearing this or is it just me?! :lol:

Doesn't sound like that to me mate. You're going crazy. How many times have you listened to it? Be honest. :lol:

Haha, I've only had it on a few times, I passed out shortly after I gave it a listen when it was released! I definitely can't hear "screaming fucking banshee" at the start though, I need to check it out with headphones!! I'm hungover, but my lugs are still somewhat functional :lol:

I've listened to it like I dunno...30 times at least. Don't look at me! :lol:

Jus listened on Spotify. I don't hate it as much as I thought I would, so there's that lol 

It sounds slightly better to me than the live version and Slash's guitar work is a redeeming feature . I just can't see that I'm ever going to love this though. I do want to but I think I'll hang in there for Hard Skool. :lol:

I'm annoyed at those fans who want a band to be stuck in the past. GNR was never a band that was gonna do the same thing over and over again to begin with. AFD-LIES-UYI was a direct progression with new elements, directions, complexity etc. There is no point in remaking Appetite or UYI, they already did that. The people that want them to remake UYI don't get it, there is no way they would ever redo that for 2021.

Considering the unpredictability of GnR, do you think it's possible that after releasing Absurd, they could release HS in the first concerts of the next leg, like Mexico or Australia?

The more I listen to it the more I’m loving it. Really liking Slash’ guitar work on it.

What does that say when translated?

I agree totally......but to say "GNR was never a band that was gonna do the same thing over and over again" is a bit much. They're been doing the same thing over and over again for years now! Hence why most of us slipped into a catatonic daze.

Più lo ascolto e più lo amo. Mi piace molto il lavoro di chitarra di Slash su di esso.

Cosa dice quando viene tradotto?
