Guns N' Roses: Use Your Illusion II

Sound — 10
If you're one of those people who love the hard sound of a heavy riff but the smoothness of a good solo, then this is your kind of album. Personally, Use Your Illusion II was the best I'd heard from GN'R. Its got that classic sound of a Gibson that Slash brought from the early days, but molding in with solos to be matched by no other. Definately a good buy if you're looking for quality sounds.

Lyrics — 9
The lyrics to these songs are quite interesting. It could be a sad song or a hard rock song, they didnt care. And thats what makes an album great diversity and variety. Although Axl isn't the greatest singer ever, the way the album is thrown together just blows my mind.

Overall Impression — 10
When it comes to music, I'm a solo type guy. I love the riffs and stuff but the solos definately catch me. And I believe that's what UYI2 was all about. I would most definately buy this album if I lost it and I recommend you going out and buying UYI I & II as they are both fantastic!
