I got the chance to listen to this album all weekend on my trip to deejay in Mexico. I like this album, the more and more I listened to it. I couldnt say I know a ton about Gun’s N Roses Albums, but to me this album has classic Guns ‘n Roses sound to it. I like. My favorite? Track 2, Shackler’s Revenge and track 3, Better. U can preview at Itunes. go listen! Thumbs Up!

So far I feel like give this guy a bad rap. I don’t know him personally, and maybe its because the media paints a bad picture of him. I liked his last album a lot but wasn’t a fan of a lot of his antics during that time. anyhow, 808’s & Heartbreak: thumbs down. I listened to it this weekend as well, while traveling with some people and they didn’t like it as well. I took a good listen and just couldn’t wrap my head around it. I tried, It very slow and sad, and I get it, but it just wasn’t for me. One of the girls i was with said her favorite track is “Heartless.” I think that is probably his best song on the album. The song i that i think is decent is, track 4, “Amazing” feat. Young Jeezy.
