Polls: What long-awaited album have you given up waiting for?
Call it the Curse Of Chinese Democracy: If rock history teaches us anything, it's that long-awaited albums often aren't worth waiting for.
The semi-recent roll call of long wished-for, ultimately disappointing releases includes Prince's "Black Album," the Eagles' "Long Road Out of Eden," Peter Gabriel's "Scratch My Back" and, of course, "Chinese Democracy," Guns n' Roses' object lesson in the perils of waiting too long (fifteen years!) between releases.
Last week, a track from Dr. Dre's endlessly-gestating "Detox" (a follow-up to his 1999 release, "2001") leaked to underwhelming response, leading Click Track to wonder: Is it possible to wait so long between albums that audiences lose interest for good, or is the bond between artist and fan strong enough to withstand decades of radio silence?
Which of the following artists have taken so long to release new discs that you've forgotten about/lost interest in them entirely? Vote below.
