Chinese Democracy

I am actually physically holding a copy. Who would've thought?

Aside from my complaint that this should really be known as "The Axl Rose Band", it doesn't sound too bad at all from the three songs I've heard so far.

It's a bit unfortunate that the 'new' GnR have become one of those bands that are apparently cool to dislike without question (Metallica's "Death Magnetic" got some pretty unwarranted flaming for the same reason). Axl Rose is still a pretty good songwriter, and a very unique vocalist - even if he is a bit of an egomaniac.
