I thought is was more consistent that UYI I & II even though it didn't have anything as "classic" sounding... but if Better, There was a Time or Sorry had been promoted they might have been pretty popular in my opinion.
    I think it was so long in the making it will always be judged as a let down. People will automatically think, this took THAT long to make?

    Hard Skool--Love this song. Sounds like UYI-era meets Chinese Democracy, with an emphasis more on the former. Better than some of the rockers, i.e., "Garden of Eden," and "Riad" from those albums. If the band hadn't fallen apart, I imagine this is what a GN'R song may have sounded like in the late 90s. Sounds a lot more like GN'R than "Absurd." I can even hear shades. of Velvet Revolver here.

    If we get an album with these two songs, and ten more i.e., "Atlas Shrugged" that sound like these, I will be very pleased.
    I really hope there's a new album, even if it is made up of stuff from CD sessions.
    Hope they release Perhaps too
