Chuck Klosterman reviews Chinese Democracy

Posted 9 years ago by Adam Gautsch

This is a little like when that grizzly bear finally ate Timothy Treadwell: Intellectually, he always knew it was coming. He had to. His very existence was built around that conclusion. But you still can't psychologically prepare for the bear who eats you alive, particularly if the bear wears cornrows.

From Chuck Klosterman's review Guns and Roses Chinese Democracy


Madeleine Muska ~ 9 years ago

Axl believes every single Guns N' Roses song needs to employ every single thing that Guns N' Roses has the capacity to do—there needs to be a soft part, a hard part, a falsetto stretch, some piano plinking, some R&B bullshit, a little Judas Priest, subhuman sound effects, a few Robert Plant yowls, dolphin squeaks, wind, overt sentimentality, and a caustic modernization of the blues.

If Klosterman hadn't written this, I would have thought that he did; by far the best Klosterman-esque commentary of the article.

P.S. Since when are beards ironic? I understand using ironic with mustache or goatee, but beards?
