    It`s not there best song, not heavy enough if you ask me. Although, listen to Chinese Democracy on gunsnroses.com, it kicks this song`s ass all the way to New Jersey, pretty much a new Welcome To The Jungle type of feel.

    He`s trying to be Trent Reznor (his idolization of Trent is part of the reason he started doing this stuff). The problem with that is, he already had something good and he just blew it because he`s trying to hard. It`s not a bad song...it`s just not GNR. It`s Axel trying to be something he`s not. I was never a fan to begin with, but I can understand why people are upset over this. He should have taken all the money he spent on this and instead payed Slash and the original band to come back.

    Just an FYI - "There Was a Time" is NOT Guns N Roses new sngle.

    The new single is "Chinese Democracy" and is being streamed at the Guns N Roses & Geffen websites.

    T.W.A.T. is on the new album, and was also mistakenly reviewed by Perez Hilton as the new single.

    Personally I think both songs are good.

    I stopped listening to G&R 10 years ago. Ever since they got to pigheaded. Axel was the worst of them all. He thought the world revolves around him. What a dick.

    I for one will NOT be buying the new album, and if someone gives me a copy I`ll shattered it to pieces and send it back to what ever record lable put it out.

    Man, I`m going to vomit!!!

    I love the original GNR but this is just awful. Axl should have quit while he still had something of a good reputation. No wonder everybody quit. He was way too in to electronics and synths.

    Im certainly not buying this.
