    MINNEAPOLIS, October 22, 2008 – Best Buy and Geffen Records announced that one of the most highly anticipated albums of all time, Guns N’ Roses’ Chinese Democracy, will be available beginning Nov. 23 at Best Buy and BestBuy.com on CD, vinyl, and digital downloads. The title track, the first single from the album, was released to radio today, October 22. Chinese Democracy is the first album of new material from one of rock’s most influential bands since the 1991 simultaneous releases of Use Your Illusion I and Use Your Illusion II. “The release of Chinese Democracy marks a historic moment in rock n’ roll,” said co-managers Irving Azoff and Andy Gould. “We’re launching with a monumental campaign developed by Gary Arnold and the Best Buy team that matches the groundbreaking sound of the album itself. Guns N’ Roses fans have every reason to celebrate, for this is only the beginning.”

    “Chinese Democracy is one of the most highly anticipated albums in music history, and Best Buy is thrilled to deliver this explosive and previously elusive release to Guns N’ Roses fans. Longtime fans will be rewarded for their patience and loyalty to this great band, while a new generation of fans will be blown away,” said Gary Arnold, Senior Entertainment Officer for Best Buy. “Axl Rose is one of the most dynamic and gifted writers and performers in modern music. Best Buy is excited to work with Axl to make the release of Chinese Democracy THE musical event of 2008!”

    “Guns N’ Roses is THE premier American rock band,” commented Steve Berman, President, Sales and Marketing, Interscope Geffen A&M Records. “Partnering with Gary and everyone at Best Buy to release one of rock’s most anticipated and legendary albums is truly a moment in music history. We’re thrilled to be able to announce that Chinese Democracy is coming, it’s coming this year, and it’s coming to Best Buy.”
    Produced by Axl Rose and Caram Costanzo, the album, which will be released on Black Frog/Geffen Records, includes 14 tracks. “Shackler’s Revenge” debuted September 14 through the Rock Band 2 videogame and “If The World” can be heard in the film Body Of Lies, which premiered on October 11.

    Chinese Democracy is being released in three formats: CD, Vinyl LP (with a free digital download of the tracks), and as a digital album. Pre-orders at www.BestBuy.com/chinesedemocracy begin today.

    its alright i guess. I think people are expecting it to be the old GNR which it will never be. Sounds way over produced for its own good. But i guess you can expect that when you spend 11 years in the studio.

    All around the net and even at Best Buy where consumers are rating their purchases and not reviewers, Guns N' Roses frontmant Axl Rose's new release Chinese Democracy has pulled off the release of the decade. 14 years in the making, the new album was never thought to have a release date and some gave up hope long ago.

    Was it worth the wait? Consumers and artists, as well as newspaper reviewers all seem to agree..... yes it was.

    "This may be the revolutionary album that singlehandedly kicks this Emo movement back out of mainstream and brings some real rock and roll back".

    Chinese Democracy can be reviewed on the GNR myspace site and purchased exclusively at your local Best Buy (or on the best buy site) where the record is slated for release effective immediately pending the clock striking 12 tonight.

    I got the thing in the mail the other day. It has some alright songs that sound like an extension of UYI. I can understand why Slash and Duff quit and did not like the direction it was heading, however, a lot of it still sounds "Guns N' Roses" to me. It is very heavily produced. There are like 3 pages of production notes in the booklet, sometimes as many as 5 guitarists and 4 keyboard players, plus bass and sub bass. It's a bit ridiculous.

    I do think Chinese Democracy is a great single and sounds very GNR, and is better then most stuff out there now.

    I'm more excited to see if there is actually a couple more albums in the can ready to come out soon as rumored.

    I never seen it as GN'R. I knew it wouldn't sound anything like the old GN'R we're used to. If you expect something like UYI you will get dissapointed. But if you're open-minded and give the album a chance you will that it got its qualities.

    Real rock and roll? Not really. This album is something different and something new, IMO

    Different and new... lol. Streets of Dreams isn't a spawn off of November Rain? PUH-lease. ;) Play them both from the start together and you can barely tell the difference. The key's are different, but the songs sound musically identical.

  18. Hey Red, what's up.

    Having been spoiled by endless "catchy" rock and pop tunes growing up in the 60s and 70s, it took me a long time to adequately like original music again, when the old standards weren't enough. So when I hear the new GNR release, I'll surely give it a decent rating also.

    That's one reason I'm on a campaign to get as many CDs as I can handle. I just bought 200 used CDs at Rasputin's for 50 cents each. Also, I like the simplicity of having the music in hand and slapping it into my sound system. It's amazing how many good tapes are out there if you compromise your tastes just a little.

    It sounded like they left the sex, drugs and rock n roll direction and went with a lets slit our wrists in a bathtub kind of deal. Album = fail.

    I do have an open mind and ear to music but I just don't like this album at all.
    I knew it wouldn't be like old GNR but this album is over produced and doesn't flow well.
