I can see clearly that some people are experiencing a sense of Apathy, or even lethargy for something they have been anticipating for such a long time.
Whether the Album was good or not it was Always going to be scrutinized meticulously above and beyond anything else...Reviewers,as objective as they are
.... Still believe and buy into the spin that literally engulfed an Album such as C.D.
When it arrived, and didn't stop Global warming,or cure cancer or in fact Doesn't Change their little lives...It becomes an Instant failure to them. Thus you have the uber
critics with unreasonable expectations about C.D. which
carries a mythic aura with it,and surrounding it.
Personally I think this Album hasn't hit it's peak yet,whether it goes mainstream or simply gathers a cult
following,People were ready and waiting to watch GNRs
fall on their faces,and ready with their verbal blades to slice it up,and mutilate it all because it didn't jive with their expectations.
It's a shame they can't enjoy it, due to some personal vendetta or failed expectation.IMO it honestly is a good
Album and only time will tell the story.
