As we all know, the new Guns N' Roses album Chinese Democracy has been in the making for quite some time. Because I have always been a fan of GNR, I have always wanted to like it. 15 years of rewrites and production changes, make it nearly impossible to do so. Despite the credit, this is not a GNR record. It's an Axl Rose solo project. Some of the songs are OK. Some suck. It's sort or crushing when this happens to your childhood idol. I choose to ignore it and pretend that it all ended in the '90's.
We rate this album "it's OK" for nostalgic reasons alone. If it were a new band we may give it an "it sucks"
