Let's not try to get too carried away with the paucity of the tracks or some of the 'unoriginality' on "G N'r Lies"
It works well, and it has something for everyone.
Aerosmith's classic Mama Kin is given a brilliant re-working.
I could (and do) play this CD often, even after all this time!
And nothing cheers me up more than that absolutely fantastic role-reversal on the boring old "I Will Survive" crap a la Gloria Gaynor et al. In other words, "I USED TO LOVE HER (But I had to kill her!" And boy can I sympathise with that one!
Buy it and play it to death!

Guns N Roses (the TRULY last great band in america)
releases another good album called GNR Lies
and it's still the best albums to listen to
in my life, it's a follow up to 1987's hit
appetite for destruction, great songs, best song writing
and slash's guitar playing is still as great as today
they were truly the last great rock n roll band
before the most overrated band in history (nirvana)
came and sent the whole rock world down the toliet.
Thank God for the darkness for rescuing it
Guns N Roses will always be the best band ever.

G N' R Lies produced the Top 5 single, Patience and the album soared to #2 in 1989. I would like to address the controversy surrounding the song, One in a Million. With all due respect, it's just a song. Only a song. There is absolutely nothing wrong with the song, One in a million.

Guns N' Roses produced another successful album and this album deserves 5 stars.

t’s funny to think that after Guns N’Roses’ second official album Lies is basically a mesh up of the very first release before Appetite For Destruction, the 1986 independent “Live?!*@Like a Suicide” and four new songs added. Add to that a few of the songs on Lies are actually covers and they even cover one of their own songs and so much for “new” material. At the core of it this releases is two EPs in one (it clearly divides them too, under 1986 there’s the live and under 1988 there’s the acoustic listing) marketed as an album by Geffen records to cash in on the band’s recent success seeing as they probably thought the band wouldn’t be together for long (and it’s hard to blame them). Lies even uses a mockup cover of a tabloid with pictures of the band and titles of the songs along with “article” to make the whole thing even more crazy. It’s not Appetite for Destruction, it’s shorter, has covers, unreleased fake live material that’s very raw (-er and cool) and it was just something to make the fans remain patient until the next Guns album. But you know what? Lies just plain work. It’s not a stellar release, but it’s a good one and it was interesting to have this raw Guns with sounds added to make it sound like a big live concert release and another side of acoustic songs. It brought a different side of the band, an interesting and enjoyable one.

The four tracks from @Live like a Suicide begin Lies. Opener “Reckless Life” is known as one of the first song that the band played before there was even the G N’R name (dating from the Hollywood Rose days) and it’s fast straightforward rock song. Their cover of Rose Tattoo’s “Nice Boys” is one that I really like, it’s very energetic and of the four live tracks it’s the one where Axl shines and sounds best.

Guns and Roses' second release G 'N' R Lies was released in November of 1988. Lies was released as a sort of cash-in on the success of Appetite for Destruction. The album comprised of two EPs in one album. First, the long deleted Live Like a Suicide is comprised of covers namely Aerosmith's Mama Kin and the superb Bad Boys. Ironically, the latter was what described the band to the press. The second of the two EPs on this album was G'N'R semi-unplugged. First is the ballad Patience which was a huge hit and was one of the first tracks to have Axl sing in a lower octave for a change rather than hearing him screech for a change and is a great ballad. Used to Love Her is a funny ode to Axl's dog and not a girlfriend/wife. You're Crazy is arguably better in its slow, unplugged style with Axl singing rather than screaming half the time. The controversial One in a Million closes the album with its lyrics which caused certain groups to call G'n'R racist, anti-gays, etc. As always, the album hit the US Top 5 and sold millions. Unfortunately, this was the last gasp with original drummer Steven Adler as he was dismissed from the band in 1990.

Goddamn do I ever wish that Guns and Roses could have stuck around and continued making great albums. Who will dive-punch dudes who take photos at concerts then walk offstage now? The American institution of the "rock star" died when Guns and Roses fell apart. We don't have rock stars anymore. We have famous rock musicians today, but they have way too much respect for the clods who buy their albums. The rock musician today fights against the image of the rock star because they want to seem like regular dudes to their fans. I'll bet that their fans secretly want their favorite bands to be rock stars. My reasoning is that since Mr. Music Fan can't afford to crash the Ferrari he doesn't have after leaving the cocaine party he is too responsible to attend, somebody has to! It doesn't happen often enough among politicians, so rock musicians ought to fill that gap in our collective life. Notice I haven't mentioned music much at all. I don't have a problem with music today, just the behavior of the people who perform it.
It's a bummer that this album has been around for nearly fifteen years and I'm just hearing it now. Nowhere does this album give you the idea that it should be cohesive (it was released to hold over fans between proper albums). Since you don't expect it to be some grand piece of music, you can enjoy it as eight good songs from one of the greatest bands ever. The first four are live, and include a cover of Aerosmith's "Mama Kin". The second half is mostly-accoustic studio recordings, and includes the bigot ballad "One In A Million".
Don't worry about any kind of Use Your Illusion-style inconsistency. This is short and meaty; a tasty snack for those who love the rock stars of yesterday.
