Riad again. Riad and Scraped are equally bad.

I voted for If the world. Not a big fan, but I absolutely love the mash-up version with slither. Probably like that as well as anything Axl or Slash has done since 91’

I don't dig mash-ups but this one was great.

Sorry to say but to me this album is the opposite of the other records...

On the other records you had 2-3 maybe 4 songs that you could vote out easily but then it became hard because of the songs were all so good. And with this record I don’t know what to vote out first because they're too many bad ones...

You're insane if you think Spaghetti Incident has overall better songs than Chinese Democracy.

I've never quite understood the hate for Riad, I get that it's no masterpiece but songs like If The World and Shacklers is far worse in my opinion.

I like Shacklers. Although I can't really tell you why. :lol:

I think it's cool how Axl jumps up and down octaves in the chorus, using his different voices.

The verses also have a fairly simple and catchy melody that keeps the song somewhat grounded considering everything else going on.

It was dated long before it actually came out, but outside of that, I think it's a decent song that gets buried at times with the production (which, could be said for every other song on CD).

I'm gonna go with This I Love on this one.

I really don't get the hate for Riad. It's a great song. Unfortunately it's one of those songs that the Village version is much much better than the album version.

I’ve always liked Riad. The intro is ridiculous and the lyrics suck (though they’re apparently about someone really interesting, according to that note he wrote) but the song has some really great vocals including one of Axl’s highest notes near the end - “sweet salVAAAAAtion”. This song suffers a lot from the instruments being buried amongst each other. It’s hard to pick out what’s actually happening. I always felt it sounded quite modern (at the time…)

I voted Chinese Democracy. This song has never impressed me. It was cool in 2002 when it was sorta grungey, but IMO lost its identity the more it got worked on. It starts with a generic riff (rock you like a hurricane adjacent), has lackluster vocals (especially live, axl sounds like he’s trying to take a shit when singing the chorus), and also not good lyrics. I like the solos and outro, but this song doesn’t melodically grab me at all.
