    The date is finally set, and IMHO, there is no way it will live up to the hype. On CD and vinyl on November 25th.

    And it is a Best Buy exclusive, which is lame.

    The same day, they are 're-releasing' Appetite. I remember reading that Axl re-recorded the entire album with the new lineup. I'm wondering if this is it.

    Behold the cover art and be underwhelmed.

    I''; buy irst day of release, mostly out of curiosity. As for re-recording Appetite? Appetite is, IMHO, one of the best 5 rock albums ever. Messing with it is stupid, unnecessary, and possibly evil.

    At least we can finally stop talking about this album. It'll be more a relief for Axl to get rid of it. I want my Dr Pepper too.

    Must be a brisk day in hell.

    I'll buy it but it won't be Guns N' Roses without Slash, Izzy, Duff and Steven (or even Matt Sorum). I won't be wasting my time with a re-recorded Appetite for Destruction, if that's indeed what the re-release ends up being.

    I can't imagine how bad this is going to be. However, I do love how an unreleased album has 47 reviews with an average rating of 4.7 :dunce

    Walking into a Best Buy store and buying a physical CD? I may do it for the nostalgia value alone.

    Axl should jumpstart some buzz with a new (actual) live cover album ala Live ?!*@ Like a Suicide. Hit up some more old Thin Lizzy, Stooges, Aerosmith, early AC/DC, maybe some Ramones.

    Bleh, I hate Dr. Peppers but I don't mind a free can of it. I am not going to get Chinese Democracy. I am quite happy with the GNR songs I downloaded from iTune, thank you very much.

    Yes! Free Dr. Pepper!

    No interest whatsoever in the album. I was never a big Guns N Roses fan in the first place, and Axl has dug himself a hole from which it will be impossible to escape by taking 15 years and losing his entire band before getting this thing out. Also, the new song in Rock Band 2 is teeeeeerrible.

    I am still loyal to Metallica, thank you, I always new that GN'R wouldn't last.

    Those were the 2 huge 80's bands. Guess who just put out a really great album?

    Yeah, but Metallica arguably hasn't made anything great since like 1991, so I wouldn't bring them into the discussion. Their new album is 'good'....but far from great. It's about where I expect this GnR album to be at. I'm sure it will be "good", but I'm not expecting anything worth 13 years of holding onto it.

    Good point. I might just get a can from the machine at work. It's only 35 cents.
