    Feels like I vaguely remember this. I like that guy's lead tone.

    Yeah, haha, indirectly. Great example of why things are better now. A record company can't just pull the rug out.

    I do remember this and I would like to get a refund on the thousands of dollars I spent on all of the CD's I bought in the '89-'92 era of forgettable flash/pan rawk. i don't think even Columbia House could keep up with the weekly train load of mediocrity being shat out then, it all sounded the same.
    Nothing against Slik Toxik, they were but a pimple on the quaking, cottage-cheesed ass of wannabe hit rawk at the time. I'll take Electric Boys for $400 Alex.

    Yeah, I don't know if I'd be quite that harsh, but it was a very contrived sort of genre. Definitely not what I listened to. It's interesting to me that people see the alt rock scene as having chased away the hair metal scene. To me hair metal sort of delayed the popularity of real metal, because they got lumped together. Then as soon as we had an independent choice of what to watch and listen to and were no longer dependent on HBB or the RIAA guys, metal came back and it's stronger than ever. And it really never went anywhere. We just lacked a medium.

    the melody randomly popped in my head earlier today and was driving me crazy because I couldn't remember who performed it.

    Catcher in the Rye... :lol:

    I liked Chinese Democracy, but that song... The first time I listened to the album, I was listening to it while walking around town. I remember busting up laughing -- full on hysterical laughter -- when Axl started singing. He sounds like Jacob Marley and Bob Cratchit from Mickey's Christmas Carol, and fucking hell, it was the funniest thing I have ever heard. The only thing that would've made it better is a part, perhaps a bridge, where he sounds like Jiminy Cricket. Unintentional comedy.

    Overall, while I liked the album, it is a little too "elaborate," I guess, for me. UYI I/II have a similar problem, though less so. Guns N Roses to me, for the most part, is a basic vocals/guitars/bass/drums band, and all of the synth and stuff distracts from that. Basically a grittier 70s era Aerosmith.

    Killswitch Engage - The Hell In Me

    The lyrics to this song touch me personally more than ever since it's my second day straight sober and I honestly can't even remember the last time I was sober for a day let alone two days in a row. Alcoholism is my personal hell and I'm finally trying to set free from it.

    Hang in there man. I'll be one year sober at the end of this month and it is definitely the best thing I've ever done for myself and my family.
