The reason is, while most of these songs are great in their own rights, these versions are not. The recording is sparse and basic, a far cry from the layered intricacy of the Illusions albums. While Slash's goal was to get the production back to basics (read: Appetite), this album was an ugly beast and not even close to the shiny black gleam of Destruction. Some songs are just plain boring. "Since I Don't Have You" was an odd choice for a single, and "Black Leather" just plain sucked. I think there were quite a few fans who were baffled by the number of Duff lead vocals too.
The best song, which isn't even by GN'R, is Johnny Thunders' "You Can't Put Your Arms Around A Memory". This is actually a Duff McKagan solo track, an outtake recorded for his first solo album, Believe In Me. Other standouts include Axl's raging "I Don't Care About You", Duff's "Attitude", and "Down On The Farm" which had been played live by the band way way back when Izzy was still in the band. A lot of fans were off-put by Axl's faux-English accent on "Down On The Farm", but that's the way it was played live and I don't mind. "Ain't It Fun" is also an angry standout.
Nazareth's "Hair of the Dog" is underwhelming although Axl does nail the lead vocal.Read more ›
1.Since I Don't Have You-This doesn't seem like a song that GN'R would cover, but it is still pretty good.
2.New Rose-This is a punk song that Duff does vocals on. It is fun to listen to.
3.Down on the Farm-One of my favorite tracks on this album. It is really creative and fun to listen to.
4.Human Being-This song is awesome, although you can't tell what Axl is saying.
5.Raw Power-This song is pretty good, but not as good as the rest.
6.Ain't It Fun-Awesome song. Axl's voice and the lyrics make it sound really dark.
7.Buick McKaine-Sort of a strange song, but the "F*** you" chant is really cool.
8. Hair of the Dog-This is my favorite song on the album. It is a Nazareth cover, and rocks very hard.
9.Attitude-This is a punk song that is sung by Duff. It is good, but too short.
10.Black Leather-Some people really like this song, others(like me)don't. I guess it depends on your taste.
11.You Can't Put Your Arms Around A Memory-A ballady type song that Duff McKagen sings on, plus Duff plays the bass,guitar, and drums on this song as well.
12.I Don't Care About You-This song is really rebellious, and fun to listen to.
13.Look At Your Game Girl-This is a hidden track that you can find if you keep the cd playing after track 12. It is actually very pretty, even though Charles Manson wrote it.
This album is usually looked down upon by the masses. This is basically because it is an album of covers, and at that, the usually quality-filled Gunners chose a largely disappointing selection of songs to cover. It's great to proclaim your origins, but the covers on the Illusions albums (mostly new songs there) blow these away. But here's a fine point that I'd like to point out, which is actually the motivating force behind what I believe is the proper analysis of this; it isn't necessarily the covers themselves (though that is a part of it), it's how they use them! "Knockin'...." is as simple as songs can be. But Guns epicified it. They made it grand and royal and wonderful. So, while this album clearly IS somewhat affected by the "heavy-on-the-punk" flavor, it could have been MUCH better if they had rearranged some of the also-simple tunes like "Attitude" and "New Rose," which, well, except for the attitude of the songs, they don't do much. THAT is why this album isn't too far above average.
Still, it IS Guns, and it IS above average. The energy that drives that original lineup (also counting Matt and Dizzy) is definitely there (if changed), the production is not tooooooo raw (that would have killed it), and there are SOME awesome songs. "Since I Don't Have You" was a great idea but proved to be inconsistent when the rest of the album doesn't prove to follow through on the diversity. Slash's signature licks are all over the album, which always helps it feel like home.Read more ›

No, "TSI" isn't a great album, or even a great stopgap album (what it's a stopgap FOR is anyone's guess at this point).
Still, it doesn't deserve to be a punchline. Read more
