Guns and Roses is my favorite band of all time.
I got hooked on them in 1988 when I was 8 years old and they were absolutely the shit. Appetite for Destruction is one of the best albums ever written. Then came Lies: Another excellent album.
Then, they reformed, keeping key members (Slash + Izzy primarily... who wrote almost ALL of GnRs music and Duff, just because) and came out with the Use Your Illusion albums. Still great GnR tunes, and some of my favorite albums.
Now... Axl is an amazing lyricist and excellent performer. I will never, ever deny that. The band would never have been the same without him.
But... then again... it would never be the same without at least Duff/Izzy/Slash either, and it's not.
It's a flaming pile of Axl Rose's shit, that was a wasted 10 years of his life. Ten years and that's what you come up with?? Really? Seriously. It took him 10 years.
In order for Guns and Roses to exist successfully, you need izzy/slash writing the music and Axl performing it.
(On the same turn of the coin, although Velvet Revolver has some good tunes with the original members of GnR, they're no GnR with Scott as lead vocalist)
If Axl wants to continue writing music, fine (I think he did a song for that movie with Arnold saving the world from the devil) but please Axl... please... Drop the GnR name.
Those of us who are diehard fans of Guns and Roses are absolutely insulted that songs from a "Guns and Roses" album sound like that.
Maybe the album isn't 'that' bad.. for another band... but its nowhere near GnR caliber and shouldn't have the name attached to it.
(Kind of like Call of Duties not made by Infinity Ward. =p )
It really felt like Axl Rose punched me in the balls when I played the new CD for the first time.
Note: The Spaghetti Incident album left out intentionally. I deny the existence of that one.
