A classic in rock album history,
By A Customer
This review is from: Use Your Illusion I (Audio CD)
This is a masterpiece! Guns N'Roses show an amazing talent for making complicated but still very rocking music. They stick to the same basic style throughout this double album, but they explore several corners of it. They experiment without ever forgetting what it's all about: great rock music!
It's one of these albums that you listen to year after year, and you keep discovering new things. Your favourite songs change over the years. The eternally heartbreaking and beautiful ballad »November Rain« was always a favourite of mine, but nowadays a good rocker like »Dead Horse« has climbed up the hitlist as well. Then there's the jammin' »Bad Obsession«, the two thrashers »Back Off Bitch« and »Double Talkin' Jive«, the noisy opener »Right Next Door To Hell«... and so on, and so on.
The best song Guns N'Roses have ever composed is on this album as well. The postively dark-sarcastic story told in the brilliant 10-minutes track »Coma« will always remain a masterly piece of rock art to me!
The two »Use Your Illusion« double albums belong in everyone's music collection.
