Marc Malkin of E! Online reports that Axl Rose has recently been letting people, music industry honchos, tastemakers and so forth, listen to six new tracks from Guns N' Roses long-awaited new album "Chinese Democracy", according to a music executive who has heard the songs. The exec raved about the music. "It's really good," he said. "Axl's voice sounds exactly the same, but the songs sound contemporary. You expect it to be a trainwreck, but it's not." "Chinese Democracy" has reportedly been in the works since 1995, with Rose the only original member still in the band. According to a report published two years ago by the New York Times, Rose had allegedly burned through $13 million in the studio by that point. Although a revamped Guns lineup toured successfully in 2006 and Rose tentatively promised that the record would be out last March, it never materialized and little has been heard about it since. Thanks for the report to Blabbermouth.net.

    Yea, but Dizzy Reed wasn't an original member. He was their first keyboard player, but he wasn't on the first 2 albums, so he doesn't count as an original member

    Because when I think of Guns N Roses, I think contemporary. Too little too late anyway. I don't care about a band that hasn't been relevant for 10 years, especially when it's due to the front man's ego. This could be the best album known to man and I wouldn't think one iota more of Axl at this point.

    I'm sure Chinese Democracy has been 'due out in the next few months' for the last few months. Few years Almost few decades...

    Get slash back, I can tell you it won't be as good without slash on guitar. Slash was that band, if you want new guns n' roses, look at a band called Slashes Snake Pit It's basically Slash shredding.

    The Feed had a bit on that a completed album of Chinese Democracy was submitted for evaluation and all the legal stuff to get it done.... If we don't see it, probably blame it on Geffen?

    These will be leaked online soon, no doubt. Still, not sure if these are even the final tracks or just further demoes. Anyway, nice to know there's some progress being made.

    I have a version of "better" as well, its good but anyone could have made that song, i can see it hitting high on the charts though

    you know whats sad? I bet that album goes platinum or at the very least gold, even if its absolute garbage, just because of all the hype, fame, and anticipation.

    Whats the heck? This doesn't even have any release date info, it just says that people who heard some leaks were good. Well..... they are actually pretty good

    Can we stop with all the pointless "Chinese Democracy" speculation? Thanks.

    This isn't news, this is just speculation UG. Also basically asking anti-Axl activists to come on here and troll and flame... Honestly, why let articles like this through? All the info contained in it has already been in older articles, both on UG and all over the net.

    I'm going to laugh my ass off if the CD ends up being the same thing that leaked more than a year ago.
