Your oppinion. Mine's that CD is a much better album than any of the older GNR stuff.
I don't give a fuck if the old stuff is played on the radion, this mainstream shit is getting old already. So the mainstream public prefers Lady Gaga's songs over Hendrix's, so she's the better musician. Ya, got the nonsense already.
Oh, and someone said that Izzy was the main creative force behind GNR. Yup, all of his mediocre/good solo albums speak for themselves, while CD's on another league musically and compositionally. Axl didn't write it alone, yes, but judging by how the songs that Slash, Izzy, Matt and Duff wrote without him aren't even half as good as the GNR stuff... you get the idea.
