Post GNR's Chinese Democracy finally has a release date!
Blabbermouth:

According to Hits Daily Double, the companion web site of music industry tip sheet HITS, GUNS N' ROSES' long-awaited new album, "Chinese Democracy" (Geffen/Interscope) finally has a release date. The CD will hit all Best Buy stores, where it is an exclusive, on the Sunday prior to Thanksgiving, November 23, giving it a full seven days on sale before entering the chart on December 2. Best Buy's sales week runs from Sunday through Saturday night.

GUNS manager Andy Gould reportedly told 900 Best Buy employees at "vendor convention" held by Best Buy last month in Dallas that a new GN'R song called "If The World" will play under the closing credits of "Body of Lies", the new film starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Russell Crowe due out on October 10. That news was confirmed online at film web sites whose representatives had attended a press screening of the flick. "If The World" will not appear on the film's soundtrack album.

"If The World" features the guitar work of Robin Finck and Buckethead, who have both since departed GUNS N' ROSES.

Another new GN'R song, called "Shackler's Revenge", appears on the Rock Band 2 video game.

"Chinese Democracy" has been more than 13 years in the making, with every original member of GUNS N' ROSES except for frontman Axl Rose long since gone from the lineup.


Yes! Finally!!

:roll:

It isn't Van Halen with only David Lee Roth. It isn't Black Sabbath with only Ozzy. It isn't GN'R with only Axl.

This is a solo album, and he doesn't want to label it as such, cause it would never sell as much as an album with the name GN'R backing it up.

That is all.

:?

Exactly, so why DO people give a shit about it? I've heard lots of demos from the album, and EVERYTHING about it and around it is nothing but PURE SHIT... :lol: :evil:

well... I'm not really a fan of GNR, this band is still on my big list of stuff I must listen to.

I have heard a few songs though... and I've heard a song from chinese democracy...

And I must say I ain't buying and I agree: After 14 years of so... who fucking cares anymore?

They said they'll make new albums though, after Chi. Dem. I can only hope they'll be good.

I've heard leaked samples off the album. I liked some things, but disliked others. I listened to "The Blues" and thought some parts sounded very much like Use Your Illusion-era Guns N' Roses. It was nice to hear. Unfortunately, some of the other samples didn't resonate with me. I wasn't too impressed, so it's not something I will be buying. Then again, the latest Velvet Revolver album didn't astound me, either. And guess what? I still haven't bought Death Magnetic.

This is why I buy old jazz CDs. Music will tend to either blow me away or just really let me down.

It will probably be a double release, like UYI.

Chinese Anarchy. Chinese Commie. Chinese State of Emergency. "Chinese Food, Do you want chips with that?"

I just listened to Shackler's Revenge off of Chinese Democracy, the game is featured in Rock Band 2 for the 360.. and I gotta say. I am not impressed at all. It's obvious that Buckethead plays on it.. which is cool, but his style does not suit the song at all.

Eh, i'm not a huge fan of Guns N' Roses. Never could get that into them, so even a new album with the original lineup wouldn't interest me too much.

I just feel bad for Willy...

It was worth the long wait! Great album!
