I actually wrote something about music at work today!
This exclusivity deal with Best Buy is probably a wise move for Universalgeffenwhatzit (probably guarantees some small recoup), but it's going to destroy the G'n'R mystique that's sold an impressive amount of magazine covers over the last decade. Unless the album sounds absolutely nothing like the leaked antiquiet tracks, it's certain to be an industry-embarrassing turkey, and probably a nail in the coffin of Music Meaning Shit. Curious to see if critics go forward with the knee-jerk one-star reviews (I would!), or if decorum dictates they give Axl's fart-fueled hot-air balloon some earnest attention.
