Guns N' Roses: The Spaghetti Incident?

Sound — 10
The Spaghetti Incident is quite underrated in terms of how it is ranked against other Guns N' Roses albums. The sound of this album has a broad range because of soem of the covers. It is an example of how versatile Axl voice is for singing in different styles. One thing that stands out for me on this album is Slash's tone. His tone fits the style of these covers perfectly, and combinded with Axl's voice, it is a good match.

Not much can be said about these songs lyrics as they are covers, but one thing is for sure, Axl's voice fits well with the majority of the songs. Duff McKagen also sings on this album which is quite a pleasant suprise, and his voice seems to fit well with the lyrics in terms of how his voice projects the lyrics.

Overall Impression — 9
The album is an example of how GN'R can take a song, and "re-vamp" it into something extrordinary. These coverd are different to covers on the Use Your Illusions albums becuase these aren't major songs that were big hits, yet GN'R come along and are able to make these into big hits. This is definately a good addition to a GN'R fans collection.
