Ok, I finally heard it now. I really like it, it's more focused than the demo and of course more GnR sounding. Although, the demo version had a lot of good elements, too.

At least at the end we get some "new" vocals. :D

The drums and the drum sound could be better. Love the cowbell.

Thumbs up!

To cut this tiny little song (what is it like three and a half mnutes in total?) into an even shorter radio edit baffles me. Like don't you dare play a guitar solo on radio! Might as well just give em just a jingle to play.

As much as I hate the copy/paste approach to their "new" releases, I must say I'm looking foward to a live version of this song. the studio version feels too Pro Tools for me, kinda sterile and lifeless.

What are you saying?

He didn't use 99 vocals yet again?

Even I didn't think he'd patch unreleased 99 hey-heys from a completely different demo into another song!

It genuinely is Stockholm Syndrome at this point - he'll patch together his MacDaddy rap with the Woo-Woo from Quicksong and you'll all take it as some sign he has loads of new songs for you!

I sometimes get what you're saying and sometimes feel you get a hard rap for making certain points. But really who the fuck cares about what year the vocals were recorded?! And realistically we have no way of validating it either. Even if we did... so what!?

Exactly. I don't care if the vocals or the Sub-Bass were recorded in 1991 or 1999 or 2006. I just want to hear this material.

Omg wtf happened to this song? It hits half as hard as the Demo. Guitars sound flat and have no soul and everything about it feels lazy and copy and paste. This sucks. If the new album is just more of this butchering the 2001 bands work this legit sucks!!! Bucket runs circles around Slash.
