Here Today...

Both songs have grown on me.  The thing is, only big GnR fans will give the songs the chance to grow, the average listener will not, so I'm expecting poor/average reviews for these songs.  Whether that matters or not is a different story...

If released, I think Monsters have the potential of being the song that people will like right off the bat. The verses are cool, the chorus is somewhat catchy, and then you have the - in my opinion - greatest vocal performance of Axl in the past 30 years during the bridge (or whatever that is called).


I don't know , Monsters sounds to me like the intro of a TV series....

Both songs have a really dark and cinematic vibe

They could do a good Soundtrack for a horror film

Same, but i'm not paying 3-to-4 times more than the price of the CD for shipping.


This is all very bizarre to me, this vinyl-only for The General, and then this Japanese exclusive for the CD release.


Why? Crumbs for the lowly mice? A "you get what you get" type mentality?


The slow sporadic release of singles is mind-boggling as well. Hiding The General on the flip-side of a single, which is not as good.


The General is mind-blowing incredible. Monsters ever better. Both are better than the 3 post-reunion releases. And I love all 3, yes even Absurd.

I give it a 4/10. It feels disjointed, lack of structure. Also more an idea than a song. A bit repetitive.
I like the screaming but that's about it.

Two possibilities:

One, vinyl may not have had a comeback in Japan the way it has elsewhere. I really don't know.
Two, maybe a CD will be added here eventually and the Japanese store was just updated first.

There's a lot going on in GNR land these days between these new songs, touring, heck even the new EOY version is something to talk about. As far as The General being hidden, my theory was it came down to the very personal nature of the song, but then they're playing it live...

Its pretty hard to say one way or another without decent vocals.

Axl's live vocals on the few I've seen are just dreadful.  Like, 'There Was A Time' live caliber bad, I'm talking.

I like the song, especially the chorus (he sang that pretty well all things considered). My only "issue" is that the song seems incomplete. There's only one verse, one chorus, and one refrain that's repeated. That's it. This song has been around for how many years and this is all that's there? This is supposed to be the follow up to Estranged (a lyrical masterpiece) and there's only one verse? Same can be said for Perhaps and HardSkool.

I'm having the same problem - it's only letting me choose a local shipping address in Japan.

Those who have ordered successfully, any tips?
