Leaked Guns N’ Roses “Chinese Democracy” Tracks Make Us Long for Whiskey, Slash

In the last few days five songs from Guns N’ Roses long-awaited albatross of an album, Chinese Democracy, have leaked. Right now “The Blues,” “IRS,” “Madagascar,” “There Was a Time,” and “Chinese Democracy” are all totally available. The good news is that listening to them brings on the thrill of doing something naughty. The bad news is that the songs mostly suck. “Chinese Democracy” tries waaaay too hard to rock and retains none of that effortless, dirty looseness we need from G N’ R. “There Was a Time” is a busy almost-ballad. “The Blues” is “November Rain,” the musical. And while we kinda like the unabashed brawn of “IRS,” it features Axl hawking really bad lyrics he knows are “lyrics.”

We’re assuming “Madagascar” (song five on the leaked list) will show up tomorrow, but in the meantime it’s available on file sharing sites. Perhaps it will redeem the rest? [via MetalSucks]
