While the project was hyped for eons, technically they're just like demos from any other bands we're fans of.

^ This.

We're hearing a 00/01 version of Atlas and it's first press mention is like 2005. The later versions could sound a bit more fleshed out.

Neemo, Atlas definitely fits right in with Prostitute and Catcher in my opinion. I like both so I dig it. axl

I found a lot of these songs sounds "mainstreamish" so I guess the entire Axl is making a NIN style record was overblown.  IRS and Rhiad have these wonderful funkish sections that I've been listening to.  I think the material is more experimental (probably the wrong  wrong) and probably a continuation of the progressive parts of the Illusion albums.

Man...i dunno...song reminds me of prostitute...not really digging it

Yeah Prostirute came to mind for me too.

After a couple listens. Its got potential to have been ok. The vocals are bad & overall song just is not well put together.

I agree a polished mix could have a Soundgarden/STP vibe

In general the vocals are just "mushed in"... that's a criticism I've had of several Chinese tracks, so maybe there's a preference. I'd rather have everything else down a notch and the vocal more prominent. Axl was always so primary in the mix on the old records and sometimes he's fighting beneath other instruments.

Anyway, here's my take on the Atlas lyrics:

Why should I try and judge
the things they say? They just won’t budge,
I’m letting go

Oh, I shelter from the blind,
so you managed to be kind
and stood enough show me how to keep it together.

When my heart’s crying out in vain,
no matter who’s to blame,
there’s still a ways to go.

So if you ask me to believe “your heart will follow you” -
it’s got a mind of its own.

When it says “run!” and the road gets rough
and you’re the one
whose shoulders just
ain’t wide enough -
whose shoulders shrug when they’ve had enough -

I’ll be the last to say “don’t follow your heart!”
But there’s more to what it takes to be a man -
than what you’ve known,
than what you’re shown,
and what we know you understand.

It’s another thing, if I were you,
I would say all that I do to be half as wrong
or still belong.
You really should take the time
to look back at what you’ve done –
all of your misadventures

When it says “run!” and the road gets rough
and you’re the one
whose shoulders just
ain’t wide enough,
whose shoulders shrug when they’ve had enough -

I’ll be the last to say “don’t follow your heart!”
But there’s more to what it takes to be a man -
than what you’ve know,
and what you’ve shown -
that’s what we know you’ll understand.

Don’t ever say “don’t follow your heart!”
Give it all, that’s what it takes to make a man
from what you’ve known
and all that you’ve been shown -
Jesus, now I hope you understand.

I’ll be the last to say “don’t follow your heart!”
But there’s more to what it takes to be a man -
than what’ve you know,
what you’ve shown,
and what we know you understand.

I never said “don’t follow your heart”
give it all, that’s what it takes to make a man -
from what you’ve known
and all that you’ve been shown
Jesus, now I hope you understand.
