Chinese Democracy



The long-awaited GnR album is out. After a quick listen, I'm left pondering whether I'm supposed to listen to this thing in the context of coke/heroin/Jack Daniels LA circa 1990, or maybe just as an unearthed artifact of rock and rollia that took forever to make and has zero context in the present, though it clearly features amazing musicianship and production.

I digress. Maybe the best thing to come out of this is Klosterman's 2006 'review' of the album, which was actually an April Fool's joke.

Listen, read, discuss.

Love,

Quelxl Rosé

funny how a lot of his reviews/commentary ends up being about him. Nice link, Thunders.
