a 2001 studio version of Madagascar produced by Roy Thomas Baker. So good!!
Oh, I was hoping this would be about a new studio album.
Care to post it?
And honestly, I don't give a frog's fat ass about new music from the current lineup.
Gnus have been dead in the water, songwriting-wise at least, since Izzy quit.
As somebody who's heard TSI and CD, no kidding.
You mean people leave Buckethead ALONE!!!
I love Bucket, but mediocre music is mediocre music.
Yeah, true. But some of his solos on CD are solid, and some of his live solos on A4D songs destroyed Slash’s.
Gnus n Roses!
I love a lot of his stuff outside of Guns, and even on CD, the guitar work is easily the best part of the album. It's just the songs that are iffy, as well as the bloated production.
Gnus n 'Orses
Well if by new GNR song you mean a different version of a song that was featured on an album that came out nearly 10 years ago in addition to being played live since 2001, yeah it is new lol.
Interesting to hear the more overt industrial aspects of the in-progress Chinese Democracy. To me, and I like the album overall, but the whole history of it is such a mess and the album could have been so much more
"Outtake of well-known, subpar song from Axl Rose's failed solo career has leaked".
Excellent. Outside of his first Pike, “Blank Bot” (Pike 143) is my favorite. The way he brings everything together in the last song is amazing. Buildor, Florrmat, Wheels of Ferris and Invisible Forrest are also in my top 10.
I'll be honest, his Pikes have been hit or miss for me. I've loved some, but others have been like "eh".
Couldn’t agree more. I’ve gone through ALL of them, though, and might have about 10 on my iPhone
I'm not a big new GNR fan but any new material, even if it's "old new" material is good to hear. CD wasn't all bad but you could take the best songs and make a great EP.
anything is better than nothing. : )
Personally I’d love to hear the 2002 version of the album. I was never really a big fan of the extra guitars Bumblefoot added to the songs. I much preferred the original leaks of the tracks from 2006
Yeah I'm not a Bumblefoot fan either. Don't get me wrong, guy can play, and he seems like a cool dude, but his playing does nothing for me.
His additions to the Chinese Democracy were totally unnecessary.
Robin Finck will always be my favourite member of that band.
Where is the goddam song?
hoping it was something new or unreleased
Thanks for the heads-up. Madagascar gave me chills when I first heard the Rock In Rio version in 2001. It still gives me chills.
This reaffirms my belief that Chinese Democracy would have really killed it if it came out between 1999-2002. The album would have been fundamentally the same as the eventual 2008 version. But, y'know, stuff happens....
I feel the same about anything from the axl rose project
