#1 Re: Guns N' Roses » GNR Release 'Absurd' Single » 10 weeks ago
So here we are, Monday (in Australia), three days after the release of Absurd, and it’s barely made a blip really. Sure, quite a few websites reported about it, but considering it’s the first official original music from Axl/Slash in 30 years, I feel underwhelmed by the response.
They would have had a good idea of that before release I'd imagine.
That's how it works these days. They make rolling stone and pitchfork and get playlisted on Spotify and that's really all there is to a release, especially if you're not interested in doing press which they are not. It's constant press that builds the buzz.
I'm happier for the music to do the talking.
Hopefully they have a back up plan with more something along the lines of classic material to build on the initial momentum that Absurd gave them.
I’d really like to believe they have a plan. I haven’t seen Axl so happy on stage with the band since 2015.
I'm sure they have a larger plan here alright.
When you think of the Dr. Pepper thing they did last time around. That was a LOT of free press that got a lot of attention for them without the band having to do a ton of interviews etc.
Also, I'm sure that there are parts of Europe and South America that are losing their minds about this.
GNR has a much bigger fanbase in countries that don't predominantly speak English nowadays.
No she didn't.
This current era of GNR is majorly exciting.
Slash and Duff back in the fold. A mixture of Chinese and pre-Chinese material played by probably the best incarnation of the band (musically) that we've seen in years.
The entire 2000 intentions vault appearing online.
GNR rehearsing an unheard CD era song and Slash openly discussing the recording of a new GNR album.
We are at peak GNR right now.
It is me. Lomax.
I haven't been around in a while.
Mostly because I saw Guns a few years back. The reunited lineup scratched the itch I had for all those years.
I hear there are songs.
I really really need to listen to these songs.
Can someone please help me out here?
I can't believe Atlas Shrugged exists!
I'll happily vote when I hear them.
Not sure how I feel about this. More music from any of these guys is always good in my book.
I would love to hear a new GNR track.
Would love if they put together an EP.
5 strong tracks would be enough for me.
All that said. I like the raw explosive feel of this track.
The guitar work is, as ever, great.

Oh..... That's a shame.
It's been too long. I thought maybe someone in the GNR camp leaked something to keep the message boards chugging with activity throughout this next tour cycle.
They need to try harder then.
If anyone has a link... That would be great!

He sure does.
This is one hell of an album.
There's so many good tracks on here.
I'm listening to Crestfallen at the moment.
if you can share the album with me .... send a pm
I'm listening on Apple Music but here's a link to the album on spotify.
You can listen free on spotify but they will sometimes put ads between songs...
Just like the radio back in the day really:
