It fucking is GN'R because it's Axl. And also new musicians who play more or less the way the original members play and have a pretty similar style. They're also quite talented. But it's GN'R with a little twist 'cause it's different and changed from the regular rock stuff, it's that and then all these other things mixed with it. Kind of like industrial rock, synths and stuff like that. So Chinese Democracy is a more complicated, edited record than other GN'R albums, but that don't mean it ain't good lol. It's fucking fantastic actually.
