This may not be popular opinion, but I really think both of the UYI albums are over-rated. It's awfully pretentious for a dirty L.A. rock band. They should have stuck to the AFD formula a little more.

I would not know where to begin. This is the best Guns n Roses album ever, with Use Your Illusion I in a close 2nd. Slash (guitarist) is amazing. The highpoint of the record is the epic track "Estranged", clocking it at over 8 minutes, and containing to killer solos, it may be the best song ever. It has the hit "Don't Cry" with the Alternate lyrics, which I think "grab you" more than the original lyrics. Dylan's "Knockin' on Heavens Door" is interpreted differently than ever before. "Get in the Ring" unloads with obscenities on various reporters that have p---ed off Axl, "Civil War" has great solos, and wah, I could say something great about every song. Every song, except the last song "My World" It's kind of a rap. It has synthesizers, with Axl trying to sound scary. But I definitely recommend this album to anyone who plays guitar, or claims to like rock music

Definitly one of their best.All it would need is "November Rain" to be called one the best albums ever.
