Chinese Democracy: Solid Album, Stupid Title.

Picked up Chinese Democracy today. I heard 9 of the 14 tracks a few months back when they leaked online. The final versions of the songs sounded great - much better than the leaks.



Its a solid solo album for Axl. My only complaint is that some of the lyrics are a bit cliche - even for rock lyrics. A few of the songs are a little bit over-produced as well. The songs featuring Axl's piano work have always been and are still my favorite. This holds true on the new album.



When you dress like the guy for more than one halloween, you don't really have the option not to buy his first new album in 14 years, regardless of how mired in controversy it is.

Let's Go!

People keep asking me - "What happened to the Blog?"

She happened to the blog. RevZilla.com happened to the blog. Life has managed to get in the way of the blog, sleep, working out, fist-pumping, bowling etc. This is not a bad thing though...

Hoping that this post is the spark that brings me back. A lot of things coming up to write about, but priortities have really kept me taking the left turn at twitter when I feel a blog post coming on. It's just so much easier. I know, I know its a cop-out - but a 140 character limit ensures I get back to work much quicker.

The juices are flowing, I just need to get the posts locked down. It will happen.

For the record Whitesnake was playing in the background at my new distribution center for this pic. I just dont randomly throw the horns that often anymore. Isa did love it though.

More to come....
