Dreadful. Got bored half way through track one, gave up. Just as awful as all their other stuff.

You gave up on an album because you didn't like track no.1 upon first hearing it? :?

Jeez MiB, your taste (?)is dreadful. This is one of the best albums I've heard in years and you slate it, yet happily listen to stuff I wouldn't touch with a bargepole. :P

LOL, I obviously wasn't in the mood for Guff Metal last night! I'll stick it on the iPod and give it another go in the week... :)

Well, I've got as far as track six the second time around - and I'm really, really bored. :(

Hair Metal was a rubbish genre in the 80s, and the twenty years in between haven't improved it. :nup:

I hear that this took fifteen years to make and cost $13 million. Jeez, talk about wasting your time and money!

No, I can't take any more. Bye bye, Axl - let's make it twenty years to the next one, eh? ;-)

Because I'll give anything a try if it is reckoned to have some musical merit - even Country & Western, or Rap. :shock: And some metal is OK, just not (IMO) the limp and pallid 80s hairdresser stuff. :P

I bought this yesterday and I have to say it is the biggest load of shite I have heard in years. What amazes me most is that people like itso much. I am truely staggered by how awful this album is. The dynamic range might be there but it is still the worst production I have heard in a long time. 20 sounds all at once, none of which go with the other. It's like they just put it all together at random and it is not in the least bit musical. Absolute fucking bollocks!

Philistine. Give it more than one play man! It's an absolutely fantastic album. Sure it's over-produced but it's bound to be when Axl has played with it for 15 years. However,the songs still shine through. Fantastic songs, fantastic vocals and fantastic musicianship. What is there to hate? You just don't like the style of music, pure& simple. As others would say on here 'you don't get it'.

I gave it 3 plays but couldn't go on. It's been taken back to Tesco and swapped for something else now.

I liked most of their old stuff (appetite and illusion) but nothing on here is remotely close to that in quality.

For me nothing shone through. It was just a barrage of random G N R noises. I definately dont get it!

Been listening to it in the car this week. IMO, on a par with Illusion 1/2, which I like.

But, TBH, sucks if it's been 10 years in the making.

It's just a good album. Nothing more, it was never going to be the best album of all time. It was never going to be better than Appetitebut you're right IMO, it is on a par with the Illusion albums. Better than Illusion 2 IMO.

This is £12.99 on vinyl in HMV - worth getting or not?

Also, the limited box thingy of My Chemical Romance's Black Parade album (2 180g heavyweight records) is reduced to £14.99 - another punt?

You spent four grand on a sofa, is a £12.99 punt on a new album by a band you profess to like such a gamble? :shock:

* Being serious, the album is great. No it's not G'n'R - it's an Axl Rose solo album but it's brilliant IMO.
