    Best Album in 10 Years

    Posted .

    Axl Rose has created a masterpiece. On these 14 tracks he tells a story that the world has been dying to hear. This album contains 2, 180 gram records, which means that they are thick and heavy and will stand the test of time along with the music recorded on them. The album is incredible from start to finish. Everyone needs to hear this album. At first it is just good. But after multiple listens, the songs take hold and then they are impossible to forget. Do yourself a favor and get this album. Axl Rose is the last Rock Star. We may never hear music like this ever again. Don't miss out on this peice of history.

    Axl Rose is a Genius

    Posted .

    Axl Rose is a genius and anyone who takes the time to write a negative review even before the CD or Vinyl version is not fair. You have a great opportunity to buy an exclusive CD or Vinyl copy from Best Buy. Maybe even buy both like many fans are doing. Buy the music and support the band and give the music a chance before you give it a negative review. That is the fair thing to do. If one is a music lover then one appreciates all music. Great music is great music! Great art is great art! This brilliant piece of art is not about comparing and contrasting Old Guns N' Roses vs. New Guns N' Roses. It's also not about the length of time it takes to produce great art -- so what if "Chinese Democracy" took years to complete -- it is art and there is no time limit on art. "The Last Judgment" is a mural by another great artist, Michelangelo, on the altar wall of the Sistine Chapel. It took eight years to complete. It was created from 1534 to 1541. To this day in history it is appreciated as one of history's most amazing, brilliant works of art, which I believe "Chinese Democracy" will also be. Artists work to create their art and if they chose to share it with the world -- that is their choice. Axl Rose is another artistic genius that creates what is in his heart and soul and we are fortunate that he choses to share it with the world and history. Be appreciative that you are alive to witness one of the most brilliant minds (Axl) and bands (GN'R) in history. Many of us young fans weren't around to witness The Beatles or Led Zeppelin. Now we are fortunate enough to live in a time where we get to see Guns N' Roses -- and a band like GN'R (both the new and old versions) does not just come around every day/every year. This is a once in a lifetime experience. So buy the music!! :) Rock on Axl! GN'R!!! We LOVE YOU, Your REAL FANS!!! And there are so, so, so, so many of us.

    Honestly, it really is awesome...

    Posted .

    I have listened to this album several times. At first I was not thrilled with a few songs...Sorry, If The World, and There Was a Time were not on the top of my list..but after a few listens all of these songs are awesome. Axl's voice sounds great and these are amazing. If you like rock n roll and guns n roses then this album will not disappoint. These songs will be played in my regular rotation for years to come and that itself is worth a 15 year wait.

    good stuff!

    Posted .

    i did have reservations for years. i didn't really like the demos,but even in the past GnR demos don't sound good. I liked some songs better after hearing them live. Now the finished product is ALOT better than i expected. Now a few songs if the world, and Better sound somewhat dated to me. would have fit into Illusion 1+2 great. it made me wonder why this took so long. GnR fans will LIKE this not sure if they will LOVE it.

    Great!

    Posted .

    Magazine reviews said this would suck. i went out and bought the album and not only were the songs great but the for an album it sounds really good. Plus you can get free downloads for the entire album so you can burn it to a CD too.

    Axl's voice is back.

    Posted .

    After waiting years for this, including going to the New Year's Eve 2001 return of Gun's N Roses, it's here. Axl's voice is absolutely incredible. His range going from high and raspy to low and deep is unparaelled. His lyrics have more meaning than any other band from my generation. My personal favorites from this album are, Better, Street of Dreams, If The World, There Was A Time, Catcher In The Rye, I.R.S, Madagascar, and This I Love. Although we miss Slash, Izzy, Duff, and Steven(Matt) for nostalgia reasons, the new band does Axl justice. And remember this, he's even better live. Just like Appetite and Use Your Illusion's I & II, I plan on hearing Chinese Democracy over and over again. There is nobody better.

    Well Worth the Wait

    Posted .

    This is the best album out this year. I have purchased the CDs for stocking stuffers for many family members. I bought the CD and LP for myself. The music here is deep, multi-layered, and excellent. The vocals, guitar work, and lyrics are far beyond those that you can find on ANY other album out there right now. This is a unique and powerful work of art--it is a masterpiece. Note: The LP makes for an excellent show-piece / collectible, as well.

    Well Worth the Wait

    Posted .

    I don't know if any album can ever measure up to Appetite for Destruction, but Chinese Democracy is not far behind. Chinese Democracy is a solid effort from Axl Rose. Say what you will about the man, but no one can deny that he is a musical genius. My wish for the band is that we will some day see the "Appetite" lineup reunited, but it's going to take one of those hades freezes over moments for that to ever happen. So far, my favorite tracks are Chinese Democracy, Shackler's Revenge and If The World. Chinese Democracy is easily the best rock album of the year. 5 Stars!

    Better than you would think!

    Posted .

    This really is great, his voice has lost a step, but it is still good. There is some amazing guitar on this album. I do miss the whole gang, but an old bud of mine of long ago is playing rhythm now. I did not have any issues downloading the digital that was offered with the vinyl purchase, I don't know if my T1 line had anything to do with that or not though...yeah! If you are tired of not having any true rock and roll bands to listen to these days, or you are an old fan of GnR then you will need to buy this, don't go by any previous leaks of this release.

    After over a decade, axl finally got it right

    Posted .

    i was so excited to get this cd... and after listening to it, it was worth the wait in my opinion. its crazy to hear axl sing something that sounds like it was straight off of use your illusions, to something you wouldnt even expect him to sing,, i mean, hes got some pretty cool beats. and his voice has stayed the same, but he sings a little different on some tracks. but i love this cd. anyone who is a true gnr fan wont be disappointed. i sure wasnt.

    the swift kick rock n roll needs!

    Posted .

    since the day i heard a chinese democracy leak i have been hooked. Better is a really cool tune. i love the chorus in shacklers revenge and the title track chinese democracy has a nice layering of Axls deep voice and high pitch voice. I cant wait to buy the album. iv heard it starts off with a blood curdling scream. i guarantee from the second that scream hits your ears to the last note of final track you will be amazed

    awesome!

    Posted .

    This is a step in the right direction! Now if we can get the rest of the 80`s rockers back, We would fix rock music! Kidding aside, Just a terrific album, I imagine a live show by GNR may lack a little chemistry but the sound is there!

    A long time coming

    Posted .

    This album is a masterpiece. the song "Better" was an instant hit in my book the first time I listened to it. "I.R.S." , "There Was a Time" and the title track "Chinese Democracy" also great songs and became favorites very quickly. The rest of the album had to grow on me but soon I loved every song on this album. Chinese Democracy is the Appetite for Destruction of today.

    Digital DL Great! - LP Quality Poor/Distorted

    Posted .

    Not sure if the record company Geffen/Universal is aware but the sound quality of the LP is distorted. I compared sound quality to the digital download and to LP versions of Appetite for Distruction and Use Your Illusion II. In both cases, the LP version of Chinese Democracy is sub par. I even contacted customer service and returned it for a new one thinking that my LP was defective. The second one was not any better. Bummer. To recap - the music is great, the LP does not do it justice.

    Vinyl mp3 download not working!!!

    Posted .

    Bought the Record version because I bought Appetite on vinyl back in 87. The This new GnR Album is GREAT!! Music 5 stars! BUT, Has anyone els had problems with the MP3 download that comes with the Vinyl version?? This morning I purchased the Vinyl version, entered the code,, the download only got to 31% before it stopped on me.. tried to do it again but the website only lets you enter that code once. Drove back to Best buy and exchanged the album and when i entered the new code (on a different PC) the same problem arose! IT STOPPED AT 31% . That website must have something wrong with their server! Who's going to to correct this? Beware if you plan to purchase the Vinyl version with thoughts to download the MP3..
