Tuesday marked 4 years of myself posting in this forum. Yes, my first post here was on 23rd December
2004, announcing my achievement for 100 flash reviews. 4 years later, look at how everything is right now. :)
I never thought I'd still be here in 4 years time, but the last two years of being here proved me wrong.
Congratulations dude! Hopefully I might still be knocking about in 4 years time, but who knows?
Alright, here are my thoughts on Chinese Democracy:
Call me cocky, smug or whatever, but I always knew CD was probably gonna be crap, for a number of reasons *braces himself for verbal abuse from GnR fans*
Firstly, the obvious one, it took so long to produce that it was never going to live up to the expectations. Secondly, I always felt GnR were overrated. Apart from Appetite for Destruction which kicked ass, they've never really impressed me or produced music I consider noteworthy, yet they are still paced on a pedestal by many.
Thirdly (and perhaps my most controversial opinion), I believe that GnR are pretty much nothing without Slash. In my view he carried them for years, much more so than Axl (who's a whiny little photographer-attacking concert-stopping bitch), and the minute he left I knew GnR were pretty much redundant. Also, video related.
Death Magnetic is a nice comeback for Metallica. It could have been better, but considering how bad their
previous album was, I won't complain. A Matter of Life and Death is also great. :)
I feel pretty much the same way. DM was by no means "old Metallica" but it was a very good step in the right direction. My biggest complaint was that James' voice was a bit up and down. On the one hand, in songs like My Apocalypse it's almost vintage Hetfield, but in others i.e. Day That Never Comes it's just too soft and gentle. I know people say he blew his voice back in the 90's, but I'm not so sure, I certainly didn;t get that impression when I saw 'em live in Dublin in August ;)
