5.0 out of 5 stars Their Last True Album
What proved to be their last album was one of their finest. Having said that they only made three albums full albums of new material (Appetite, Illusion 1 & Illusion 2). Lies and Spaghetti were mere fills during major tours.
Illusion 2 gave us the newer material that the band had at the time as Illusion 1 was made up old songs that never made Appetite. I remember...

3.0 out of 5 stars Get in th Ring!
This DVD features Guns N'Roses in 1992 during their massive world wide Use Your Illusion tour.
I am a big Guns N' Roses fan and saw them at the end of the Use Your Illusion tour in may 1993 at Milton Keynes. The reason I'm giving this DVD three stars and not Five is for two reasons.
Firstly they were so much better when I saw them play at the concert In Milton...

4.0 out of 5 stars Guns n' Roses dvd, 3 Mar 2011
The product took a while to get here, but it still got here within the estimated dates. A few little glitches when playing, but nothing unbearable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow, 5 May 2004
This review is from: Use Your Illusion II (Audio CD)
'Civil war', 'Get in the ring', 'Estranged', they are all good. I have yet to find a Guns N' Roses song that isnt good. This is the second part to a two part album, so to get this one you should definately consider getting part one first, cos they are both brill!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! Gunners at their best!, 17 Jan 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Use Your Illusion II (Audio CD)
This album forms the perfect counterpoint to UYI 1. It's not as hard and angry. Some of the tracks here are just incredible, from the opening Civil War to the marathon Estranged. You really get the impression that GnR put everything into these albums.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of rock's greatest albums., 3 Nov 2000

This review is from: Use Your Illusion II (Audio CD)
Although not quite as good as APPETITE FOR DESTRUCTION ot is still a top notch, very rocking album. The classics include Civil War and You could be mine. And a rather amusing song Get in the Ring. Well worth checking out if you like Soft-Heavy rock.

3.0 out of 5 stars Bloated musical buffoonery, 24 Jun 2004
This review is from: Use Your Illusion II (Audio CD)
So here we have part two of Axl Rose's egotistical creation. And like its sister album, it has some fine moments - most notably You Could Be Mine, a track so fast and brilliant it could have slotted into their classic Appetite For Destruction, no bother. But this track is unrepresentative of the album as a whole, which sees the band straying dangerously into the kind of musical buffoonery that could only be blamed on too much cocaine.
It contains not one, two, but four genuine epics, and at least seven tracks over five minutes. Some work, some don't. Estranged, for example, is a brilliant sweeping ballad that shifts gracefully between its four distinct musical parts. Locomotive is a lengthy experiment with tempo and time signature that doesn't quite come off. However, So Fine is an excellent bluesy number that makes similar tempo changes look easy. Then there's the track Civil War, which has its heart in the right place but contains a truly dreadful lyric, rhyming the words "civil war" with "human grocery store." Unforgivable.
The GNR legend is so monumental and much of their music so good that I would never urge anyone not to buy one of their albums. However, as Use Your Illusion II and its sister album show, you have to be prepared to take the rough with the smooth.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tremendous, 8 Dec 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Use Your Illusion II (Audio CD)
For me, this album is an absolute masterpiece, and even better than Illusion 1. There are very few songs that can't be called outstanding ('So Fine', or the rap track 'My World'), and even these are good! For sheer ambition, scale and attitude, get these albums. If you're into rock and roll they are essential. There may be less tracks on this one compared to Illusion 1, but it seems better balanced and more cohesive. It's just sad that Guns have yet to produce a worthy follow-up of their own written material (whoever's in the band this month, that is). Either way, really check out 'Civil War', 'Estranged', 'Yesterdays', and 'Locomotive' which are standout tracks. But the rest isn't bad either!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Some Tracks Great, Some Awful., 6 Nov 2001
This review is from: Use Your Illusion II (Audio CD)
UYI 2 contains some of GnR's greatest work ("Estranged", "Breakdown" etc), however, tracks like "Get In The Ring" and "Shotgun Blues" are just embarrasing. In the ten years since this album was released, many of the songs have become a little cliched as well ("14 years"). If both UYI albums had been combined into one, it would have made one of the greatest albums of all time, however, they weren't so it wasn't.

This review is from: Use Your Illusion II (Audio CD)
lets face it guns and roses made one good album being appetite for destruction this and its other half have some descent tracks on them but there are a lot of fillers i think they are over rated as a band and axel rose just loves himself he had the cheek to slag iron maiden at least theyve got staying power and have produced more than one classic album so im sorry for all you people who have been hoodwinked but gr are a band with no substance and are pretty ordinary actually and it shows on this album

5.0 out of 5 stars Easily the Best G'n'R Album, 31 July 2006
This review is from: Use Your Illusion II (Audio CD)
Nearly all the tracks are winners. Great version of the Stones "Sympathy for the Devil" and Guns and Roses track Sweet Child of Mine has been voted having the best guitar riff ever! If you like rock - look no further.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Use Your Illusion II (Audio CD)
This is a old CD, and hopefuly there will come a new one soone!

The music it`s ok, but Guns And Roses has only a few goood melodies, and it`s bad, because they are great live!
