David Fricke Gives Chinese Democracy 4 Stars
Edited to add: OK, so I'm three songs in, and I've heard all the songs before (not these versions, though). And... seriously... this album is kicking my ass.
Edited again: So what I have doesn't appear to be the whole album, though it does sound like final versions of most of the songs. Either way, it's awesome, and I'm ordering it here right now.
