4. Guns n Roses, who I just wish would go away after all these years of waiting for their new album, which undoubtedly be utter crap anyway. Sweet Child 'O Mine is possibly my most hated song in history.
Having heard the 9 song leak I gotta say that the songs are pretty good, but the production and performance style Axl has gone with are horrendous
. There's loads of horrible electronic fills and intros, and drum loops (yes, drum loops!). It's fiddly, unnecessary, and anything good about the music is buried under so many layers of extraneous bullshit that nobody is ever going to notice.
I predict that if, and it's a big if, the album ever comes out it will shoot straight to number one on billboard for one week, then sink quicker than lead. After the first week sales it will become an unmitigated commercial failure, and will certainly get a phenomenal roasting from the rock press. Assuming the whole album is like the tracks I have heard that is.
