Right Ok, One of the earlier reviews say's about not getting swept up with the hype, however I believe that the reviewer has done just that.
The media was always going to be split on this one, half will say it was worth the wait, and the others will say that it was not.
I understand that any review is just someones opinion, however I disagree with some of the below. First off, Its no Appetite for Destruction, but lets be honest, it was never going to be. Any G'N'R fan will love this though, and I mean, really love it. Its great, the blend of acoustic guitar with electric, and some of the riffs are awesome. And Axl's vocals are amazing as usual.
And look at it this way, if this had of come out when it was meant to, you would be paying about £15/£16 for a new CD. So for £9 you cant complain.
