Guns N’ Roses, ‘Chinese Democracy’: Aidin Vaziri | Axl Rose is an idiot. He spent nearly 15 years, countless millions and a truckload of Slash replacements making “Chinese Democracy” only to finally put it out in the same week as just about every other major release of 2008 (and only at Best Buy stores, at that). Since he made us wait so long, it’s only fair that we make Axl wait for our verdict on the new Guns N’ Roses album after we address all the other important new stuff coming out this week. Here goes. The Killers, “Day & Age”: Even worse than their last album, if that’s technically possible. Kanye West, “808s & Heartbreak”: Kanye can’t sing, yet everybody involved neglected to inform him. Daryl Hall & John Oates, “Live at the Troubadour”: Awesome, as usual. Coldplay, “Prospekt’s March (EP)”: The lukewarm leftovers from “Viva La Vida,” with a wholly unnecessary Jay-Z cameo. Barry Manilow, “The Greatest Songs of the Eighties”: Oh really, Barry? Where’s “Girlfriend in a Coma”? David Byrne and Brian Eno, “Everything That Happens Will Happen Today”: Great if you have a Ph.D. in being boring. The Fireman, “Electric Arguments”: The latest from Paul McCartney’s alter ego, which at points sounds like old U2. Ludacris, “Theater of the Mind”: He’s stepping it up with the lyrics, slowing it down with the beats – call it a draw. R.E.M., “Murmur (Deluxe Edition)”: Came out 25 years ago and still capable of making knees tremble uncontrollably. Finally … Guns N’ Roses, “Chinese Democracy”: It’s a bit overproduced, isn’t it?
