Featuring "Don't Cry" and "Live And Let Die"
 
Part one of Guns N' Roses' ambitious third album stays closer to the band's bluesy hard-rock roots and it is largely considered the better of the two-part release. Use Your Illusion I scored three Top 40 hits with the Wings cover "Live and Let Die," the piano-driven, Elton John-flavored epic "November Rain" and the hard-edged ballad "Don't Cry." Celebrity cameos include a then-unknown Shannon Hoon, Hanoi Rocks' Mike Monroe and Alice Cooper, who makes a particularly sinister contribution to "The Garden."

Not perfect, but worth getting.

Reviewer: Eric
Just picked this up today. First thoughts are that the dynamics are fairly good. I think they could have been a bit better as some solos or vocals didn't hit as hard as the old CDs i have from what I remember. But i didnt A/B them. There are some pops and clicks. Not the cleanest album...but I wasnt bothered as a lot of rock albums that are repressed now seem to be way less quality than this. (MobilFid ...and Justice was "audiophile" and the worst purchase ever) Bottom line: Unless ORG does a pressing of this, i am fine with this one.


Not what I expected...

I had been waiting for this release for a long time now. Sadly though, the pressing is very compressed and sounds hollow with no depth. The pressing is standard 120g and the cover isn't a gatefold. I would not recommend this pressing unless all you have is a record player. Hopefully someone gets ahold of the masters and does it right. Same review for Illusion II...
