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.

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`ve never liked GnR he sings like an old women and has gotten more plastic surgery than one and somehow it`s gotten even worse now the 80`s are long dead give it up.

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.

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.

"There was a time" when people knew how to retire with some dignity. GNR died back in 96, and I`ll just go back to listening to those albums that inspired my youth. This here is just pathethic!!!

I dont think its as bas as some people think, but its not GNR. He should never have called it GNR again unless he stuck with the same sound, or at least style. This is completely different.

Axl never should have broken up GNR. This is just terrible. Meanwhile, Velvet Revolver is out there making some decent tunes.

Oh god, this is awful. I thought it wasn`t possible for Axl`s singing voice to get worse, but yikes. It`s like Maroon 5 meets generic garage band.

I bet Slash is somewhere, laughing his ass off.

Anyone else notice that it sounds like the 90210 theme when the guitar starts up at the beginning?

I feel a bit let down... I was all hyped up waiting 15 years, does not sound like G&R at all.

G&R is reknowned for Axl and Slash......1+1=2....you make the connection I am trying to make here...

It`s like calling an album "Elton John" without Elton....

Me and my dad were listening to this in the car on the way home.
The first things out of our mouths?
"It sounds like really bad Rush."
They`re just coming back out of the coffin for money, now.

Firstly, thanks Rat5Rule. =)

Secondly... awful... Axl went off the deep end a long time ago, and this just proves it.

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.

If that`s Axl, he sounds like crap. Listen to the part where he goes "...it was a long time for you, it was a long time for me..." - TOTALLY FLAT AND SAD.
