Top Ten Best Guns N' Roses Albumswaterboy51
The Top Ten
A note perfect album. There has never been an album like this one.
This one is the best because its got the 5 original members Use Your Illusion 1-2 are good to but not as good as Appertite.
This is "THE ALBUM" of Guns N Roses, its got many of their best songs- Welcome to the Jungle, Sweet Child O' Mine and Paradise City being examples of those. This has everything in it. If you get into this, you're not escaping from the Jungle!
This album is amazing, it is a truly landmark album and brought the real music back into the mainstream instead of that hair crap. Definitely Top 5 albums of the 80's.
Civil war! - Lmeister
Some awesome hits including Civil War, You Could be Mine, Estranged and Knockin' on Heavens Door
Enstranged, Don't Cry, Get in the ring, Locomotive, You could be mine, So fine, Civil War, Knockin' on heavans door, Pretty Tied up, Yesterdays and MY WORLD! This pwns!
UYI2 was better than the first in many ways. The second one is less explicit and has more hits. Estranged, You Could Be Mine, Civil War, tons of great stuff on this one. Appetite however, is undoubtedly number one. All Guns N' Roses fans will agree on this.
Definitely the superior use your illusion album
Appetite is always gonna b number one but this comes right after! this should be number two with great songs like back off bitch, november rain, perfect crime, and coma! Pretty much every song on this album is awesome!
IT kicks ass, and had so many possible singles. If use your illusion one had been released as two separate albums, they would have scored twice the chart success. You can only have so many singles per album. Perfect crime, bad apples, bad obsession. I could go on
Appetite for destruction deserves #1 but IMO this should be second. November rain for me is the best GnR song and theres many other greats on this album
Amazing album. Izzy Stradlins song writing on Patience should alone make this top 3 with Appetite. Lies is something of an extension of Appetite for Destruction with tracks from before and after Appetite. Tracks like Mama Kin and Used to love her are always forgotten and underrated.
There are no bad songs on this album and it also has the original 5 members. It's better than the Illusions.
This should be number 2, behind Appetite for Destruction.
This should be number 2
Imagine this. It's 1963 and The Beatles just released their debut album "Please, Please Me". No doubt a classic. Then nothing happens for another six years until they resurface looking nearly unrecognizable and their second album is "Abbey Road".
Because People had time to acclimate to their meteoric progression, it's now remembered as a classic. However, if it had gone the way I had just described it, everyone would have thought it was garbage. Just take that into consideration next time you listen to Chinese Democracy. No question, it only trails second behind Appetite, and that's not be a large margin. This is just a different album from a musician who has grown out of his old skin. Nothing more. The talent is still there.
Radiohead though? I think it could have worked, with the quality of the songs on Abbey Road. - JoLeKosovo
Underrated album. Actually a good one, thanks to Buckethead. - Merkwurdigliebe
Most underrated Guns album because people hate Axl's ego because of which he fired the other amazing members of the original best line-up, but Axl showed that he can handle a band with average members and make it one of the best. Axl, you are awesome! - ben10kenobi
People overlook this album because it's not their beloved SLASH playing or isn't as aggressive as Appetite. This album is better than the Spaghetti Incident and Guns N' Roses Lies put together. The masterpieces such as 'Sorry', 'Prostitute', 'Madagascar', 'Street Of Dreams' and 'There Was A Time' are untouchable. The music has so much emotion and lyrical beauty. People hate this album and aren't willing to give it a try because they hate change. If the classic lineup had been on this album people would've loved it. I'm happy the classic lineup didn't play on this otherwise it wouldn't have that Industrial / Experimental / Artistic sound that I love
This greatest hits album of the band that we know and love, it has all of their best songs from all of their albums. So, buy this album instead of buying any of the other albums. It is a true masterpiece and should be number one of the best Guns N' Roses album of all time.
Best Hits with a track listing of Welcome to the Jungle, Sweet Child O' Mine, Patience, Paradise City, Knockin' on Heavens Door, Civil War, You Could be Mine, Don't Cry, November Rain, Live And Let Die, Yesterdays, Ain't It Fun, Since I Don't Have You and Sympathy for the Devil. It is a true masterpiece, shound be no. 1
I own this in 5 different formats. It has all the best from each album. next is appitite for destruction.
All the greatest songs on one album! - booklover1
This actually has a lot of great Songs Highlights are since I don't have you, down on the farm, Duff Mckagan sings on attitude, you can't put your arms around a memory, and new rose.
Such an underrated album
The spaghetti incident wouldn't be my first choice of Guns N' Roses, but if I was really desperate to listen to gn'r, and it was the only album I could get my hands on, I might listen to a few songs.
Fantastic Live Album, has all of guns's best songs all live and they were at their best live. Brilliant.
This one owns Appetite, well I also like Appetite.
