Published Nov 20, 2008If the non-stop news coverage, album reviews and illegal leaks are not enough for you to believe in the existence of Chinese Democracy, the new Gun N Roses album is now streaming on MySpace. The stream of Axls entire "opus began today and comes 96 hours before the long-awaited album/punch-line hits retailers on Sunday, November 23.
Along with the sweet-ass Axl Rose icon at the left and the monstrous banner up top, the bands MySpace page tells us that Chinese Democracy is "only at Best Buy. However, wed like to remind you that in Canada there is no such exclusivity and the album can be bought at any retailer. In fact, earlier this week, we saw real hard-copy editions of Chinese Democracy being priced at one of Vancouvers independent record shops, where the clerks were kind enough to actually let us hold one. Somehow, though, it wasnt as satisfying as we thought itd be.
In other stream news, Electric Arguments by Paul McCartneys side project, the Fireman, also started streaming on MySpace today. You can hear it here in advance of the albums November 25 release date.
