[quote:34d4296c2c]Guns N’ Roses Officially Announces “Chinese Democracy” Release
October 22, 2008 – Best Buy and Geffen Records announced that one of the most highly anticipated albums of all time, Guns N’ Roses’ Chinese Democracy, will be available beginning Nov. 23 at Best Buy and BestBuy.com on CD, vinyl, and digital downloads. The title track, the first single from the album, was released to radio today, October 22. Chinese Democracy is the first album of new material from one of rock’s most influential bands since the 1991 simultaneous releases of Use Your Illusion I and Use Your Illusion II.
I thought it was really dull. 17 years to put out an album, you could squeeze in Loveless, The Second Coming and The Menace all in there and still have enough time left over for a couple of world tours.
Dr Pepper promise to provide every person in America a can of the soft drink if "Chinese Democracy" were to arrive in 2008, and has revealed details of the plan.
"We never thought this day would come," Dr Pepper vp marketing Tony Jacobs said Wednesday. "But now that it's here all we can say is: The Dr Pepper's on us."
Interested fans are being asked to visit DrPepper.com (http://www.drpepper.com) on November 23, the day "Chinese Democracy" is released in the U.S. exclusively via Best Buy. After registering online, fans will receive a coupon redeemable for a 20-ounce Dr Pepper wherever the drink is sold.
The twist: The coupon is available for only 24 hours and will expire on February 28.
Yeah I've streamed it maybe 3 times from MySpace, and it's surprisingly industrial sounding. I mean, it's not a surprise I guess since Buckethead is industrial etc etc, but I hadn't heard anything from them since UYI:2.
Better is the best, but even then, it's not great. Axl's overdubs are agony, I thought.
True. That distinctive sound that made them special on the first album is but a distant memory. This record is short on tunes and Axl's voice, never that easy on the ears is now suffering from that old man syndrome that affects some vocalists after a while, not in a good way.
