GNR chinese democracy

They said it would never happen. Just like the Chinese embrace of democracy. Chinese Democracy has landed. Well, the capitalism aspect of it anyway.

Due out on November 25, 2008.

Catch a preview of Chinese Democracy in it's lower-bit rate entirety on the GNR site while your staring at the countdown clock.

You'd expect to get quite a lot of muddy mixed up heavy metal confusion after spending 14 years to make an album, but Chinese Democracy is surprisingly cohesive.
Glaringly obvious is the 80's-90's drum sound, but it's also clean and crisp. Axl's growl is nothing short of amazing for a guy in his mid 40's. Although Slash is sadly absent from the tracks, the guitars are modern and relivant.

I guess mid-life crisis is a good thing for bands that should have just cut out all the drama and focused on the music. Chinese Democracy is the first in a trillogy of new albums, let's hope they can make it that far.

Chinese Democracy

 

Chinese Democracy lyrics

It don't really matter
You'll find out for yourself
No, it don't really matter
You're gonna leave this thing to
Somebody else
You think we're missionaries
Real time visionaries
Sitting in a Chinese stew
To view my dis-infatu-ation

I know that I'm a classic case
Watch my disenchanted face
Blame it on a Falun Gong
They see the end and it can't hold on, now

Cause it would take a lot more hate than you
To stop from fascination
Even with your iron fist
Our baby got to rule the nation

But all I got
Is precious time

It don't really matter
You're gonna find out for yourself
No, it don't really matter
I guess you'll do this thing to
Somebody else

'Cause it would take a lot more time than you
I've got more masturbation
Even with your iron fist
Our baby got to rule the nation
But all I got
Is precious time
Our baby got to rule the nation
But all I got
Is precious time

It don't really matter
Gonna keep it to myself
No, it don't really matter
So you can hear it now from
Somebody else

You think you got it all locked up inside
And if you beat them all up they'll die

And then you'll walk them home for themselves
Then now you'll dig for your rose back in hell
As if your eyes were your ass you can tell

In another time
