Go at it with an open mind that it won't sound like Slash-era stuff and it's a great record. You really have to separate yourself from the fact it's under the name Guns N Roses. It sounds like it's from the same thought process as the song Estranged but a whole albums worth of odd ball music that has a progressive feel.
Live? The songs work very well!
