Chinese Democracy

star wars and guns-n-roses made be the two pop-culturally defining phenomenon for males of my generation. and chinese democracy is basically like the star wars prequals: cool in theory, disappointing in reality. just as it was awesome to see a bunch of light saber fights, it's great to hear axl's voice on new songs. just about every song has something to like, some killer guitar groove or hook or melody of one sort or another, but i can't say there is a single song that is great, or (dare i say) even that good.

in the end, the vlaue of chinese democracy--like the star wars prequals--is more about the myths surrounding it than the actual document itself (and both made great and totally marred by their creators). still, i keep listening to it.
