Not to get too far off the "there hasn't been any good rock music produced since 1992" topic, but:
Especially compared to Use your Illusion (which is one of the more subpar GnR CDs in my opinion).
There's not exactly a whole lot left to choose from in the GN'R catalog besides the Illusion
albums (yes, there are two of them). The only other full album of original material is (the untouchable) Appetite
, and then you've got an EP and a covers album. So, only three full albums of original material, and yes, the Illusion
s are most definitely subpar compared to Appetite
(although if they had been smart and whittled the Illusion
s down to one disc, it certainly would have come closer to rivaling Appetite
There are definitely some cool new rock bands out there though. Take Wolfmother for instance. Very retro, pretty derivative, but it works and it rocks.
But some decent new releases? Like I said: Wolfmother is cool.
Do you have the Wolfmother album, Nick? And if so, care to do any uploading?
I've heard the single and really like it, and have heard nothing but positive things about the full record.
