G’nR’s Chinese Democracy is available – at Best Buy, at any rate.
NPR’s music reviewer may have preferred the delay:
Chinese Democracy wins points just for entering the world. After all these years, hearing it is like finally seeing the monster at the end of a horror movie: It’s no longer a mystery, but at least now, the real action begins.
Rumor has it their next album will be called either Man-Made Global Warming or President Hillary.
