After a 17-year wait, Chinese Democracy needs to be a spectacle- something that either validates its tortuous birthing process or a Hindenberg so horribly panned it somehow validates its mastermind as a misunderstood genius. Perhaps the most striking aspect of Chinese Democracy is that it's about the fifth-most shocking Guns N' Roses album.
An album with an infamous history behind it. Guns N' Roses began to write and record new music in 1994. In the following years, everyone that recorded predecessor The Spaghetti Incident? aside from Axl and keyboardist Dizzy Reed either quit or was fired. Seeing Chinese Democracy be released in 2008 was considered, by some, akin to pigs flying or Hell freezing over.
In a recent interview with Billboard, Axl Rose stated that "Chinese Democracy" was coming February 28 to Rock Band, but that information has since been updated to a "spring" release. What was also unclear - you know, given the source - was whether Mr. Rose was talking about Chinese Democracy the song or the full album.
Unusually for Axl, or at least for this album, the title track seems to be aimed solely at the Chinese government and its tendency to be overwhelmingly filled with ruthless tyrannical bastards and isn’t, as we’ll see elsewhere, a lofty metaphor for the persecution he’s suffered at the hands of x, y and z.
