“Axl's back!”

published 11/12/2008

ProOriginal, fresh new material, resembles the old Gu...

ConsOne or two bad tracks, but nothing major

Chinese Democracy is one way overdue album and it really makes you wonder why it took Axl Rose so long to sort his act out and finally get it together. It's been thirteen years since Guns n Roses released a studio album back in 1995 - The Spaghetti Incident, which contained no original material...

ProSome brilliant tracks, nice to hear Axl again

ConsFeels disjointed and some dire tracks

It's been a while for Axl and Co. It's been even longer than most of us though, infact their last studio album was "The Spaghetti Incident?" in 1993 and that was an album of covers, meaning the last fresh G N R album was back in 1991 with the 2 "Use Your Illusion" Albums. With the best of album...

ConsSome weak tracks

guns n' roses For me the guns n' roses have always been amongst the best rock bands in modern day history. The style of the main band members Slash and Axel Rose have always been interesting to follow. The previous compact disc of 'Use your Illusion' was breathtaking and over a decade later I saw...

“Nearly all guns blazing”

ProNice Mix of tracks and feels

ConsNo Slash

Of late I have really started to get back into music, so much so I rooted around in my collection and dug out my old Guns and Roses CD?s which I enjoyed so much I decided to get their newest album called Chinese Democracy which was released late in 2008. The album has 14 tracks and lasts for just...

The longest wait in history for any one album ended in 2008 with Chinese Democracy. It bore the legendary name but not the faces. The top hat and Les Paul were gone. So despite being a massive Guns N' Roses fan, I approached with caution. I needn't have. As soon as the haunting intro to 'Chinese...

Chinese Democracy is the 6th album by Guns n' Roses, one of the most talked about bands in rock history. Although you may be familiar with the band from previous albums such as the "Spaghetti Incident?" and "Appetite for Destruction", this particular album is going to stir your rock soul either...

Although this album has had many criticisms, its only real crime is being called a G'N'R album. To call it Axl Rose and chums would be more fitting. As the album is recorded over a 17 year period the feel of the album varies but feels suprisingly uniformed non the less especially considering the...

“Chinese Democracy”

published 25/11/2008

Pro20 years of waiting is over

ConsNot an instant classic

After waiting so long for the release of this album, it is always hard to know exactly what to expect. There is both the desire for it to be in a similar style to 'Appetite for Destruction' and the hope that it will be bigger and better. There is however a failure on both fronts. With the lack of...

ConsToo dense a guitar sound at times

My initial reaction to Chinese Democracy finally being released was to laugh. Everyone knows the story, 15 years in the making, millions spent producing etc. As an original Guns n Roses fan I, like any other, was certain that Chinese Democracy was going to be worthless without Slash, Duff and...

After only 14 years and numerous restructuring within the band Guns N' Roses have bought us this absolute beauty of an album.

With a production history that could fill an encyclopaedia, Chinese Democracy was somehow finally released to the public.
