Product Description


Had Use Your Illusion II been combined with Use Your Illusion I, keeping only the best material while dropping the filler, it would have been one of the best rock albums ever recorded. Instead, great songs like "Civil War", "14 Years", "Estranged", and "So Fine" compete with the inexcusable "Get in the Ring" and the well-intentioned but off-target cover of "Knockin' on Heaven's Door". There's no point to the second version of "Don't Cry", either. On the other hand, when Guns N' Roses were good, they were very, very good, and some of the material on this album is unsurpassable. --Genevieve Williams

5.0 out of 5 stars Epic Album on Vinyl Feb. 7 2014
Format:LP Record|Verified Purchase
What is all the arguing about? These albums were huge when they came out and have stood the test of time. To those who complain about filler on albums, I’ll take all the filler that this era of GNR has to offer over anything on the radio today.

Use Your Illusion II has one of the greatest songs ever written on it, Estranged - a true masterpiece. The guitar work alone from Slash cements him as all-time great. Axl’s best work ever on piano and lyrically.

I say I love every minute of both UYI albums. Even the oft criticized My World. Because it captures what GNR was like at the height of their debauchery. Axl snuck a crazy track like that on what was destined to become an epic album, and he knew it! Isn’t that just a big middle finger to the whole world (and his band)? The last real rock star on the planet – Axl Rose. CAT scan shows disfiguration!

This vinyl was worth every penny.

LP is awesome. Turned out to be a great gift, and it looks like I will be listening to civil war for years to come. Great shipping time as well!

3.0 out of 5 stars Pre Finger Printed! Feb. 11 2011
By Cobion
Format:LP Record|Verified Purchase
Don't know what it is about the Back to Black label that presses these but every album I buy from them comes looking like it has been dragged around a nightclub bathroom before being shipped.

The this come pre fingerprinted!

5.0 out of 5 stars Guns N' Roses delivered on this album!! July 10 2006
By Vader
Format:Audio CD
Guns N' Roses delivered on this album with You Could Be Mine, Civil War, Estranged and Knockin' On Heaven's Door. GUns N" Roses produced a masteriece with both Use Your Illusion I and II and no matter how hard Velvet Revolver tries, they will never ever be able to duplicate the success of GUns N" Roses. The most successful metal bands in the 90s were Guns N' Roses and Metallica and they delivered masterpieces. Use Your Illusion II is a must-have for any metal fan.

4.0 out of 5 stars Use your Illusion July 7 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This album is pretty good, but on the other hand anything guns roses could make would be awsome! though the first use your illusion is by far better the second album is a great rock title. it has great songs like: shotgun blues, locomotive, 14 years, and civil war. the mood of this album is more of a sad and dreary look on things but none the less it is a great album and a definate for any GNR fan.

4.0 out of 5 stars USE YOUR ILLUSION 2 April 20 2005
Format:Audio CD
My favorite song on this CD is Civil War because they talk about
not fighting in a war and the reason is that the music is great.
Other than that I like 14 Years, Knock, Knock, Knockin' On Heaven's Door, & You Could Be Mine. In my opinion, Estranged is
the weakest song off the cd and is one of the saddest songs ever
made. Anyway my favorite song off the Illusions is November Rain
because it has some of the best riffs ever!

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Guns N Roses Feb. 22 2005
Format:Audio CD
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.
Also check out these early 90's CD's:
Metallica - Metallica (1991)
Alice In Chains - Dirt (1992)
Pearl Jam - Ten (1991)
Nirvana - In Utero (1993)
Guns N Roses - Use Your Illusion I (1991)
Nirvana - Nevermind (1991)

5.0 out of 5 stars Even better than Use Your Illusion 1! July 19 2004
By Gitters
Format:Audio CD
Use Your Illusion II, continues the experments and open formula of Use Your Illusion I.Some of Axl's best singing and writing is on display here."Civil War",14 Years,Yesterdays,and a cover of Knocking on Heaven's Door, make for a killer first half of the album. There is also an alternate take of Don't Cry, as well as a goofy attack on some of the critics that gave Axl bad reviews, "Get in the Ring". If you own Use Your Illusion I, II is essential for you.
