dying open

Chinese Democracy In a Crushed Republic.

The album is an amazing piece of work. I bought it on vinyl and CD, as pictured.

RollingStone actually likes the album, which is amazing because they hate everything.

Axl Rose, with this album, has achieved a lot. Everything from critical acclaim to giving everyone in America the right to a free Dr. Pepper.

As it turns out, he didn't spend the last 15 years on just this album. He was working on three albums simultaneously, so two others are already in the can when this one passes.

Less a band, more a cult now. Axl the grand shaman on high, the rest of the collective those who drank the KoolAid and lived.
