"Appetite For Destruction"? Please. "Use Your Illusion"? Utter crap.
Axl had to get these juvenile recordings out of his way in preparation for his masterpiece. It's taken fourteen years, the firing of Slash and Daffy...Doof...whatever his name is, the quick rise and spectacular fall of Buckethead, but it's finally here.
Certain works always come up when great music is discussed, Beethoven's 9th, the Ring Cycle, Sgt. Pepper, It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back, but Chinese Democracy may, just may, mind you, be a hundred times better than all of those works put together.
Hope the first track's an instrumental...
