This is terrible, just terrible. Such a shame, cause I really liked Guns N' Roses back when they were actually Guns N' Roses... :-°

Define "it"? I can accept if people don't like it. It certainly doesn't sound like the Guns N' Roses of old, but I feel like people are close minded about the songs simply because of that. I'd just like to know what about it is so terrible, which songs you listened to, etc. (for anyone who bothered to listen, not just Sim). I'm honestly not trying to convince people it's the best album ever or anything either, just wanted to get some opinions and thoughts outside of the GN'R forums.

AC/DC and G&R top the charts and James Bond is #1 at the box office. We are in a creative wasteland. I blame George Bush for killing the hopes, dreams and imagination of a generation. Now if you will excuse me I have a game of trivial pursuit to finish.

I listened to the first minute or so of the first 5 or 6 songs. Sometimes it takes more than one listen to appreciate an album, sometimes you tell right away. This one... well I'll dedicate another 10 minutes of my life to the remaining tracks but I'm not hopeful. It's just not GNR. It's Axl 20 years later and some other guys. Appetite is easily in my top 5, and I think UYI would be in my top 20.

Sorry, I should explain that I am not the biggest GnR fan to begin with. Their singles amuse me when I hear them, but I don't own any albums other than Appetite. I find this Chinese Democracy album to be essentially un-listenable.

Meh. My buddy burned a CD for me. It's ok. I'll have to listen to it a couple times but it is not that great.
