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.
