Product Description

Amazon.ca

Forts du carton plus que colossal réalisé par Appetite For Destruction, les Guns N'Roses poursuivent sur leur lancée en publiant, en décembre 1988, cet album aux huit titres très variés. En effet, Guns N'Roses Lies réunit les quatre chansons de Live ?! Like A Suicide, le premier EP du gang angeleno, ainsi qu'une nouvelle version de "You're Crazy" et trois morceaux inédits. Ces derniers permettent de découvrir une nouvelle facette des Gunners qui prouvent qu'ils savent aussi bien manier les ballades que les riffs meurtriers. Axl Rose est à son zénith pour interpréter un futur classique comme "Patience" ou le controversé "One In A Million" dont les paroles s'attaquaient aux minorités. Surprenant et choquant à la fois. --Cyril Deluermoz

5.0 out of 5 stars I Used To Love It - And I Still Do! Oct. 15 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Last truly original Great Rock Band June 29 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
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.

By Vader
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good mini album of sorts July 6 2004
Format:Audio CD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's G'n'R, so of course it's good Jan. 8 2004
Format:Audio CD
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars 2 EP's in 1, Pretty decent music May 29 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is really 2 short EP's released as 1 album - the first side is their old "Live like a Suicide" EP, which was recorded LOOOOONG before Appetite came along, and the 2nd side is a collection of some acoustic songs recorded in a very relaxed style. The idea was to give the fans something to hold them over until their next studio release - which was probably a good thing since it took so long for Use Your Illusion (I and II) to come out. As such, the quality is not great and the songs are decent, but it is not an true album. Just keep that in mind and you won't be disapointed.
The live songs aren't bad - he actually sounds better here than on their recent double live album. The cover of Aerosmith's Mama Kin is easily the highlight.
As for the accoustic songs, Patience is the most popular. It's a good song, very different for them at the time, but it suffers a bit from "stairway" syndrome (i.e. a ballad overplayed to death by the radio). Of course, GNR would take this to new extremes later with November Rain, but that's a review for another day. You're Crazy is a bit of a shock from the original - MUCH slower and sung in a different style - but once you stop trying to compare it to the original version (difficult, I must say!), you will like it. Used to Love Her is interesting - it's a catchy song with a nice rhythm, very happy sounding, but with a bit of a morbid message. For the record (and contrary to popular belief) - Axl is NOT singing about killing his girlfriend in this song; he's actually singing about a dog he used to own! This may not be any better for some of you, but oh well. One in a Million is another interesting one - it's basically Axl just getting some bitterness out of his system. Unlike Used to Love Her, the music matches the lyrics in this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars underrated!!!!!
this album is so underrated. It only had 1 hit but if people actually listened to the other songs they would think its great.
The best song would probably be patience.

4.0 out of 5 stars They're such "Nice Boys".
Even though this isn't a normal album, I've always really liked it. The first 4 tracks are live and from 1986, pre-"Appetite For Destruction", and are pretty raw rockers. Read more
