Lies is the forgotten second album by Guns `n' Roses- the first half being a re-release of previous EP Live, and the second half being mostly new acoustic songs. This was mostly a hurried cash in after the huge success of Appetite, striking while the appetite for more was at a peak. A mix of live originals and covers which show the band at their storming, energetic best and softer, more thoughtful songs which show they are capable of more than just tearing up the stage, Lies has many great moments and should be picked up by all rock fans. Try to get your hands on the extended version which also features Shadow Of Your Love and Cornshucker.

`Reckless Life' flies into top gear with Duff's charming intro speak, galloping guitars, and hectic drums. Axl screeches his way through every word, a big 80s solo weaves the song together, and the huge chorus was at the time a sign of things to come from the band.

`Nice Boys' is a live cover of the Rose Tattoo song with lyrics and tone perfectly suited to Guns. The band race through it at a hundred miles per hour, Axl enjoying being able to add his own angry snarl to the vocals, and Slash eager to impress by filling the space between chorus and verse.

`Move To The City' shows the band's more bluesy side while also foreshadowing the orchestral moves the band would tackle in the future. Lyrically this covers much of the same ground as the topics on AFD, with young, naïve outsiders getting away to the big city from their small towns in hope of something better, but being bitten by the beast. As usual the guitars are top notch and everything sounds super cool.

`Mama Kin' is a live Aerosmith cover, another song whose themes suited the band perfectly. The swagger is sexually charged and confident, misogynistic, and care free.

Lightweight and accessible, GNR Lies is more a double EP than a studio album proper. Indeed, the first half of the disc - the electric half - was originally released as a live EP pre-Appetite For Destruction, and on its four tracks you can almost feel the band on the verge of something spectacular. The standout tracks here are the funky Move To The City and the raucous cover of Aerosmith's Mama Kin, which arguably surpasses the original.
But it is on the acoustic second half where the real interest lies. In start contrast to the rocking first half, these next four tracks show a side of GNR not witnessed before or since. This is most notable on the intimate ballad Patience, a rare display of sensitivity from the band. I Used To Love Her and You're Crazy are pleasing lightweight numbers, before finally we get One In A Million - perhaps the most objectionable lyrics ever written, set to a cheerful melody and lightly-strummed guitar chords. Quite superb!
Lies was only ever meant as a stop-gap while the much more important Use Your Illusion project was in the making. As it turned out, GNR were about to lose the plot, and Lies stands as a relic from a time when they knew how to keep things simple.

The first four songs are live and were originally released on the EP Live Like a Suicide. There are two cover songs here, Nice Boys and Mama Kin, (by Rose Tattoo and Aerosmith respectively) both are superb and Mama Kin would regularly appear on the live set.

Reckless Life and Move to the City are by the Guns, the latter still being on the set occasionally during the Use Your Illusion Tour.

The next four songs are dramatically different with a slower acoustic feel.

Patience is the first and best of these, perhaps one of the best ballads ever written, this song is truly beautiful.

You're Crazy appears as it was before they speeded it up for Appetite for Destruction.

Used to Love Her is a comic take on how you might feel about relationships at certain times, as the song says "Take it for what it is".

One in a Million has often been criticised for its lyrical content, but is a slow, powerful, grinding song, which finishes off a brilliant album in style.

Great album. First four tracks are from 1986 and the highlights are "Nice Boys", which features a wicked bassline and the Aerosmith cover "Mama Kin". Second four tracks are (almost) acoustic, with "Patience" being the highlight and the controversial "One In A Million". Anyone who`s heard their first album "Appetite For Destruction" will enjoy a slower version of "You`re Crazy". Buy it.

released in 1988,the reason for the release of this is debatable,was it released because the world needed to hear it,or as a means of taking cold cash of us all after the success of appetite for destruction,regardless this is an album of two halves literally,the first four songs are a recording of a live show,although its possible that the audience cheers were added according to myth and the remaining four songs are acoustic numbers,three of which are new songs as youre crazy is an acoustic version of their own song which appeared on the legendary debut.

The live tracks are taken from their ep live like a suicide so they werent entirely unheard of songs but they are still excellent all the same,reckless life is a fist stomping,sleaze ridden classic,nice boys is camp with regards to lyrical style but is still a great song,move to the city is enjoyable and mama kin is again excellent,so side a passes the test.

The acoustic songs start with the legendary and fan favourite patience,the song builds into an awesome track with great sing a long moments,used to love her is a very tongue in cheek song about killing the girl you love because she wont shut up,but again a great fast,uptempo number,your'e crazy is good but not better than the original heavy version so weighs the quality down slightly and the album ends with the controversial,riot inducing,one in a million which is basically an axl rant about immigrants and aids and such like,its a song that left slash feeling uncomfortable as he is half black himself but they were always the most dangerous band in the world so i doubt if that was a big concern to Axl.
