Guns N Roses is my favorite band of all time. But this particular album is not my favorite. This album was released after when Guns N Roses broke up, and it’s not the same. It doesn’t sound the same. And it doesn’t sound like Axl singing. I mean, I understand he’s older and his voice sounds different, but it’s really not the same. Some of the songs are pretty good though, like This I Love. Oh well, it’s Guns N Roses, I’m still buying it.
Pretty much an Axl solo album...
This pretty much is an Axl Rose solo album but it's still not the worst album I have ever heard. As long as you understand this is not a real GNR album you may appreciate it more. Yes it's extremely produced, but that's just Axl Rose and plus I would have been extremely surprised if it hadn't been considered how long it took for this to be released. The problem is this has the GNR name on it...the only way for it to sound like GNR is with some of the other guys that created that sound. Here's to hoping now that Slash and Duff are back in the band we get a new album. Undoubtedly that would sound more like Guns than this.
Where's the reviews?
Why aren't the iTunes "reviews" showing?
Very good album
First I'd say about half a star rating of people's votes towards this is due to the fact that people will allow a band name alone define what an album can be. Forget the name of the band for a moment and listen to the actual music. This album is great if you can do that. If you feel the name Guns N' Roses shouldn't be associated with this album and give it a lower rating because of that alone than you are missing on a album that has many good songs. Better, street of dreams, there was a time, IRS, this I love.. heck I like it all. But musically speaking once again I highly recommend it. Give it a chance. For me it got better over the years.

I listened to the album once and love it! It's a nice change of pace in my opinion and the songs are a little different from the ones he's done before, good job G n R!
If you want a good rock album from 2008, go to Black Ice by Ac/Dc
The booklet??? Why can't I download it?
GREAT album that I have been enjoying for 8 years now but the booklet downloadable anymore? It says purchased but I can't get it...anyone??
Saw songs performed live-made the difference!
Took awhile for me to appreciate this album. After I saw GNR live this past summer (fan since '87) and heard these songs live...it won me over. Maybe becasue Duff and Slash were performing them, but I fell in love with a lot of the lyrics on this albumn. "If it doesn't show give it time. To read between the lines" ;)
Finally listened to this, as a Buckethead fan. Sadly, his gifts were not really used enough. Also, I can see how people expecting more GnR pop metal would be disappointed in this. I found it unique and different and liked it. Will definitely listen to it again.
