Yes I listened to it once and didn't like it. But it does sound like they took some chances and didn't just make the same old thing. So I think some people might dig it. Just not for me.

Heard the album. I think it's really good. If you're looking for 1991 GnR this isn't it. It's new and fresh. Axl's voice sound pretty good. It'll be interesting to hear live...

Re: Axl Rose angry with Dr. Pepper....

Thumbs down from me for Chinese Democracy. And no, I didnt judge it as a function of it taking 60% of my life to make, just purely on the album itself. Axl simply cannot sing anymore. IRS is ok, but the rest of the album I really didnt find the least bit interesting. I'm all for a band changing and evolving its sound, but for me the quality of the songs just doesnt cut it.

Re: Axl Rose angry with Dr. Pepper....

From a previous article:

The company said that in an "unprecedented show of solidarity with Axl", all Americans would receive a free can, "except estranged guitarists Slash and Buckethead".

The band's frontman, Axl Rose, said at the time that he was "surprised and very happy" to have the firm's support.

The company said the star's "quest for perfection" was understandable, leading them to believe that Chinese Democracy would not hit the shops in 2008.

They concocted this whole thing to garner huge publicity for both parties.

It seems to have done the trick

I like the album - not the best ever or anything but worth the 7.99 from iTunes

"The redemption scheme your company clumsily implemented for this offer was an unmitigated disaster which defrauded consumers and, in the eyes of vocal fans, ruined the day of Chinese Democracy's release."

Oh, THAT'S what ruined it... glad they cleared that up...
