  • Blane from Pocola, Okawesome song!
  • Nishit from Mumbai, --This 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!
