Appetite For Destruction is an excellent album and easily one of the Top 3 from the 80's but Use Your Illusion II makes it look vastly overrated. Compare the fury of "Welcome To The Jungle" with "You Could Be Mine" which everyone knows was in AHHHNOLD'S Terminator: Judgment Day. Or how about the 9+ minute epic Estranged which alone makes Use Your Illusion II a five star album. Slash's guitar for 4 minutes, then a change wear Axl plays beautifully on the piano, then more of Slash's guitar and then a thrilling finish. "Knockin On Heaven's Door" was a great Bob Dylan cover and "Civil War" displays Axl's talent for songwriting when he avoids profanity. "14 Years" has a cool chorus with Izzy doing vocals and "Yesterdays" is one of the band's better known songs. Use Your Illusion II is above Use Your Illusion I because it's more consistent and there's less filler. Like everyone else, my only complaint is "My World" which really isn't saying much because it's only 1 minute-22 seconds long although it's still Guns N Roses worst song ever. This CD overall is probably my favorite of the 90's although "90's" refers only up to 1993 in my book because things went downhill fast afterward. Use Your Illusion II is classic Guns N Roses and should no be missed by anyone.
