Single Review

It received more publicity than the final of Strictly Come Dancing, unfortunately GUNS N ROSES first album since 1991, Chinese Democracy also managed to come across as forced and clichd as a Bruce Forsyth quip. This single Better, bears out some of the flaws of this supposed rejuvenation. Building from an disjointed, atmospherically implanted beginning it relies too much on hollow, spiralling 70s riffs and Axls tiring glam skirting vocal approach that was showing signs of tiring and becoming grating in 1991.

Unfortunately, Metallica B-side status would be a compliment rather than a put down for this incongruous offering. For many, it was just enough for Chinese Democracy to be out there, but patience will surely wane as they use snippets from it like Better, to keep it in lunchtime conversations at officer, school, pub or university.
