Hey, Chinese Democracy has arrived.
Or at least the first official single from the loooong-awaited Guns ‘N Roses album, the title track of which was released earlier this week. I listened to it through my computer, which makes it sound all tinny and small, so I will have to catch it somewhere with better audio before I decide if I like it.
The album is scheduled to be sold exclusively by Best Buy beginning Nov. 23. Since it’s been 13 years in the making — actually, it’s just taken drug-addled lead singer Axel Rose that long to cobble it together between bouts of weirdness and the departure of all other original members — it should really be something. Maybe.
Apparently, the new business model for rock and roll is to find an exclusive place to peddle your music. The Eagles and AC/DC have done it with Wal-Mart, and now G’N'R with Best Buy.
