WAAF and Hill-Man are going to be all over this...

Greg is going home tonight, putting it on repeat and listening to it in his "Man-Cave"

Sounds not bad.
The drumming sounds like Nirvana.

Well it only took Axel 10+ years but it finally looks like his album will actually be released.

I used to love these guys. Now, I won't even click a link to check out a new song.

I'll believe it when I see it on the store shelf. Like a lot of their music but ever since the riot in Montreal, at which I was in attendance, I have not been a fan.

I have only heard Shackler's Revenge in Rock Band, and I have to agree that it was not very good...

Personally liked Better and There Was a Time. Sadly I'm sure they'll get my $9.99 at some point.

'There was a time' is cool, but 'Better'? The song is an absolute mess...

That song (Better) is pure perfection, hopefully it will be the Second Single.

I gotta say...I don't hate it. I was prepared to really hate the song. The guitar work on the track is ****ing killer. I searched for some of the other songs from the record, I found "There Was A Time"...holy **** that solo is awesome.

Not too bad so far (Chinese Democracy). Like the guitar solos, but you can definately tell it's not Slash. It's a little disenfranchising to know though that it took them at least 14 years to write this song.

Listening to Better, and it does sound a little messy. Given the high marks on this thread, I expected something more.

The local rock station played a clip of Chinese Democracy today on my way home from work, I was not too impressed, maybe they should have put a little more time in on this one

Give Better a few more spins - trust me it grows on you fast!
