    Chinese Democracy, album would probably be viewed more favorably had it been released as an Axl solo record.
    You miss 100% of the Nope you don't Nope.

    Don't give up Nope.

    I get that. I thought it lent that album a lot of franticness that I really enjoyed. Their second album is much more polished in that regard - I'm sure you've heard it.

    @Ben: were you already familiar with it? I knew of the CD when I was shown it 'cause I'd seen articles on Steidl in the guitar mags, but Frankfurt was the first time I lived in a city where one could buy music like that. Everyone I've ever played it for was knocked out by it, but it's clearly not mainstream. I also have Burnt Steel , his long-awaited follow-up, where he switches to steel-string acoustics, but it's just not the same. He then attempted a come-back as Orisino, but nothing much seemed to come of that, either.

    No, only listened to it when I saw your post. Very intriguing stuff. I'll have to look on Amazon to see if I can pick anything else by him up, there are only 2 albums on Spotify. I need to give it a better listen, it was just on while I worked so most if it went in one ear and out the other, but what I heard I really liked. The guy can play.

    To my knowledge there are only the two albums.

    The guy is more Al Di Meola than Al Di Meola is!

    Oh man, another person who actually owns that album!

    Own it? If I'd had the vinyl, I'd've worn it out!
