Ok... so if I told you that one of the biggest rock bands in the world was taking ELEVEN YEARS to produce their next album what would you think? 
Would you think "WOW... eleven years... I bet it's gonna be amazing!"
or...
Would you think..."Um... yeah... Imma going to listen to some other bands and if your band is still relevant in eleven years ... I might check it out."
On this week's Loudini Rock & Roll Circus Podcast we will tell you the story behind Guns & Roses' sixth and most controversial album Chinese Democracy and answer the question... "Was it worth the wait?"

Better
Street of Dreams ...ballad... not the Rainbow song. beautiful chord changes
If the World... seal goes rock
There was a time... drum loops... then kicks in to heavy rock... then back and forth
Catcher in the Rye... beatle-esque chord changes
Scraped... great groove... throw back to Appetite songwriting... great vocal harmonies... ala Extreme or even Queen
Riad N' the Bedouins... frenetic riffing in the "a" section giving way to powerful half time melodic "b" section
Sorry... ballad... axl singing in lower register,  12/8 time... slow and heavy riff kicks in in the chorus... old Bad Company vibe
I.R.S.  start with rnb drum loop groove... builds until bass gtr kicks in and becomes more traditional gnr... but touches on modern pop and rnb through out...dynamic arrangement
Madagascar
This I Love
Prostitute
