Good Busy Day, Axl Rose
Some days are just insanely busy, but make you feel more productive than normal, and near the end you might as well finish up a bunch of stuff hanging over your head because you have the momentum.
Listened to some of Axl Rose’s Chinese Democracy leaked tracks. I don’t really consider myself a metal fan, but the story behind this album is one of those bizarre pop culture stories that is just too fascinating to ignore. I mean, after several years, tens of millions spent, and many musicians’ involvement, this album has either got be some kind of masterwork or a total embarrassment. So the feeling I got from listening to some of these leaked tracks is that the train is headed towards the latter. Axl’s got a fine voice still, and there’s some moments of GnR glory, but overall there’s that aching “solo album” feel with many musical moments that bear the markings of paid-for overdubs.
