Chinese Democracy Videos?

I've also wondered this -- why no videos from Chinese Democracy? Perhaps in 15 years. Update (because I don't want to start another GNR thread): Pitchfork finally reviewed it: 5.8.


For that matter, all I see are reviews, not interviews.

i really think this album, for all its hoopla, is being dumped out there as a way for axl to pay off his debts (to his label, which also happens to own his publishing/merch companies). also, note this week's best buy circular: there's not a mention of the album anywhere, even though it's their big-money exclusive and it's only been out a week.

i bet you we won't see an interview with axl until irving azoff finishes negotiating the old arm-tattoo lineup for a huge cash-in tour, whichever happens first.

So, I've been listening to this album, one song per day. I'm two songs in. So far, there is so much crap tacked on to the songs that even to the extent that they're good it's hard to get to.

But it's much much more "accessible" music then Appetite for Destruction or even the Illusion albums, not I think, to its credit. It's like there's a "please like me" sign that Axl put up.

5.8 sounds about right.

Maybe Axl Rose is really Osama Bin Laden?
