By the time this came out most outside fans of G'n'R had `matured' and were now listening to Limp Bizkit or some other equally disastrous mess. The big fans were still waiting for Chinese Democracy but that was looking more and more impossible by the day. A double live album of all the hits was probably the best any of us could hope for, and thankfully this turned out to be a wonderful reminder of how fierce, how potent, and how damn good the band could be. They were always at their best in front of an adoring crowd, and the selection here from over a period of 6 years shows that they were adored throughout the world, and loved to put on a show. There is interaction with the crowd, a few jams, a few mistakes, but mostly everything is excellence.

`Nightrain' opens the album just like it opened many a show- in a tirade of furious guitars and ultra cool posturing. This is even more frantic than the album track like many other songs here.

`Mr. Brownstone' does what you expect it to- grooves along with funky guitars and a few Axl updates.

`It's So Easy' does chaos like few other songs do and this live version ups the madness, ending on an emphatic Axl `Yeah!'

`Welcome To The Jungle' starts with the same old treat of a screech they always use at the live shows and flies on at a rip-roaring pace.

`Dust N' Bones' always seemed to be a strange one to play live to me but it works ok. I usually skip this one if i'm going through the album.

`My Michelle' isn't very different from the album track, Axl gives the vocals a bit more bite and the guitars have a few extra bits.

This album seems to largely borrow from the videos of Use Your Illusion I & II filmed in Tokyo and as such is a little disappointing if you already own them. However, it can't be faulted for the breadth of material. It would have been good however, if they'd have spread the recordings over their whole career and listed the dates of the recordings as this, as I have said, seems too much like a single recording from the Use Your Illusion Tour.

I was a massive GnR fan way back when & this album just brought all the tracks back to life. There is so much energy here w/Nightrain, Mr Brownstone, etc just rocking out. There is the superbly diverse blues playout to Move To The City &, of course, Slash at the fore on every track. The Estranged version here is one of my top ever tracks. PD!

In my opinion this is the Greatest Hits for Guns N' Roses, not as many covers on the CD as there is on the actual Greatest Hits CD. It has every song from Appetite For Destruction and the best from the Use Your Illusion albums.
Having never seen or heard the band live before hearing this CD I was a little upset with it at first but it really grows on you. The way AXL's screams aren't exactly in tune every time and the guitar solo's aren't exactly the same as the studio albums, but that's live music and you can almost feel the sole of the band through this album.
Some versions of the songs on this album are actually better than the studio releases, there is a great version of Used To Love Her on this album, I also think Estranged on this album is fantastic.
All in all this is a must have album for any Guns N' Roses fan even if just to get a feel for what the band must of been like to see live. I would even rate this as my 2nd favourite Guns N' Roses CD behind Appetite.
Go buy it!

The first CD starts with a typically hoarse-throated American telling us that "we wanted the best, well they couldn't make it." Upon hearing his tones you begin to womder if you've made a terrible mistake forking out the cash for this one! One word of advice - don't play it to your friends, they'll only laugh.
But then the music kicks in with Nighttrain. Suddenly though after only two songs Axl stops proceedings for a few minutes to tell the audience in the arena to each take one step back. Why, when editing this mixture of live material together, did Geffen ever think of putting this bit in? Is it to emphasize how hard Axl is?
Anyway, CD1 isn't the best GNR material ever complied, but it's finer than most other bands on an off-day. My only qualm is that there doesn't appear to be enough bass. So get yourself a decent stereo for this one.
That is more than made up for with CD2 which encompasses the very best of Use your Illusions II. Yup we have a grand finale of Estranged, Paradise City etc. It's a belter.
So 2 X 70 minutes = value for money in my book!

It is rare that a song comes along that can truely define music as an art form. Some of these are Wanted Dead Or Alive by Bon Jovi or Dreams by Van Halen (although many would not agree with me), but it is even rarer to find a whole album that can define the fine art of music. This album is perfect! From Nightrain to Paradise city it rocks. The true masterpieces on this album are November Rain, Patience, Rocket Queen and of course, what is possibly the greatest song ever, Sweet Child O Mine. There are of course those which can't be classified as masterpices because of the type of song. Welcome to the Jungle or Paradise City are rocking tracks that just plain rock so can't really be masterpieces but they are worthy of high regard. My favourite tracks on this album are Move To The City and Knockin' On Heavens Door Because of the audience participation, something that you just can't get on a studio album. The way that the crowd cheers at certain lyrics or grooves with the band is incredible and gives you a surge of adrenaline matched by very few albums.
In my opinion, if you don't buy this then you are missing an experience in your life. If you already own this and want another album, may I suggest A Little South Of Sanity by Aerosmith. A very similar music style and an equal masterpiece.
