Nishit from MumbaiThis album should be called Axl Rose - Chinese Democracy, because of it works, it's entirely due to his raspy, raw, powerful voice.
Elena from Paradise City, Australia, --No comments? :O Well, I've written my thoughts about Chinese Democracy in my blog already so I'm not going to write an essay, but all I can say is the songs, like this, are well written. I really liked this song. However a lot of the songs didn't sound like Guns n' Roses. Sure, you could tell it was Axl but the raw, real sound of Guns N' Roses was missing. It's a good album from Axl and Co. not from Guns N' Roses. Another thing I noticed about the album, and I don't know if it's just me, but a lot of the songs sounded like Metallica. And a lot of the songs had unneeded extras in it, like orchestras, too many changes and additional bits and pieces. Anyway, great song, I love the lyrics!
David Bowie's "Space Oddity" tells the story of an astronaut who cuts off communication and floats into space. The BBC used it extensively in their coverage of the 1969 moon landing - an odd choice considering the lyrics.
