Chinese Democracy..A Review...

Chinese Democracy, the LONG awaited album from Guns N Roses, finally dropped, 14 yrs later. It was supposed to drop initially in 1995. Every year since then it was slated to be released, it became a joke of the music industry. People were saying that when the album finally came out China would actually have a democracy. Well it dropped today. The question on many peoples minds is, was it worth the wait? In a word yes! There are some fantastic songs on the album! The album has a great mix of heavy songs and many slower piano songs that eventually rock! Its vintage GNR, around use your illusion time. The standout tracks are: Street Dreams, IRS, Rhiad & the Beduins, Better, madagascar, and Catcher in the RYE. The album in general has great production, and the songs all change tempos, and go from faster to slower or vice versa. Axl sounds as good as ever! He can still hit ALL the notes, which I questioned. The album is 75 mins long, and many songs are over 5 mins (9 of 14) GNR is at their best w/ the long songs. Love the album, get it! GNR is back baby! and I couldnt be more happy! (4.5 out of 5 stars)
