Hell Freezes Over, Pigs Fly, Etc., Etc.

axl-rose-005-imgY’all, I’m still not holding my breath, but according to many, many sources, Guns ‘n Roses is finally releasing Chinese Democracy on November 23. Like I said, I’ll believe it when the disc is in my CD player, but until then, I can’t help but get a little excited. It feels real this time, especially because Rolling Stone‘s already reviewed the album. And it sounds pretty good:

“Let’s get right to it: The first Guns n’ Roses album of new, original songs since the first Bush administration is a great, audacious, unhinged and uncompromising hard-rock record. In other words, it sounds a lot like the Guns n’ Roses you know. At times, it’s the clenched-fist five that made 1987’s perfect storm, Appetite for Destruction; more often, it’s the one sprawled across the maxed-out CDs of 1991’s Use Your Illusion I and II, but here compressed into a convulsive single disc of supershred guitars, orchestral fanfares, hip-hop electronics, metallic tabernacle choirs and Axl Rose’s still-virile, rusted-siren singing.”

Oooh, I can’t tell you how excited that makes me! I love, love, love GNR. They’re one of my favorite bands of all time and even though the only thing that remains of the original lineup is crazy-ass Axl, that’s still enough for me to be pretty stoked. If this miracle actually takes place and the CD hits the stores, I’ll have a full review here for you on 11/24. Stay tuned!

  4. I’m a GNR fan too, although it’s hard to imagine anything coming close to their initial recordings. Too bad they didn’t completely reunite….they aren’t getting any younger, so I hope this is good!
