5.0 out of 5 stars LOOK AT THE FREAKIN' TITLE! July 25, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Oh, come on! Look at you all, complaining that your fave GNR song isn't on it!

Look at the title of the CD. It says: 'Guns n' Roses' Greatest Hits', doesn't it? That means it has - guess what? - the greatest hits of Guns n' Roses, not the 'specially crafted Guns n' Roses CD especially for YOU and nobody else'.

Just check any UK Top 40 Singles Chart Archive (try [...] and type in Guns n' Roses in the 'Artist' slot) and it will show you how each of their singles rated in the Public Charts.

Compare the list of their hit singles to the Greatest Hits album and you'll see that the line up is virtually identical. Cool, Eh?

Now, where on that list do you see 'Estranged', 'Coma' or 'Mr Brownstone'? Nowhere.

'Nuff said.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't buy it if you're a Guns N' Roses fan March 31, 2004
Format:Audio CD
If you're a Guns N' Roses fan, there's only 2 reasons why you should buy this album...
- You're a G'N'R collector
- You have a friend who likes G'N'R, but doesn't own any of the albums. So this album is a great present indeed.
A true fan already owns at least "Appetite For Destruction", "Use Your Illusion I & II" and perhaps "Lies". "The Spaguetti Incident" was just a plain bad album, but if you liked "Since I Don't Have You", you might as well go to ITunes or Napster and download it.
People on the previous posts complain a lot for this album not including more songs from "Appetite For Destruction" or "Use Your Illusion" but let me remind them... THIS IS A HITS ALBUM!! ...which includes pretty much every single song played on the radio. There's a lot of fan favorites not included here, but that's just because THEY WEREN'T HITS!
Yet this is a great pick for anyone who is just about to get introduced to this band. Guns N' Roses could have been the biggest thing since 'The Beatles', but we all know how that story ends. So don't even bother to wait for 'Chinese Democracy' to come out.

First of all, this is a very good album, with few weak tracks. But if you are trying to get into Guns N' Roses, I would recommnend first buying Appetite For Destruction, which is almost a "Best Of" album itself. GN'R only released five albums, and the few tracks on Greatest Hits just don't do them justice. Skip this, and go with AFD, and I guarantee you will be hooked on Guns N' Roses enough to buy their other albums.

By Vader
Format:Audio CD
This is a must every Guns N' Roses fan. All of Guns N' Roses hits are here including the masterpiece- Welcome to the Jungle, the ballads- Don't Cry and November Rain. Their #1 single, Sweet Child O'Mine is here. You Could Be Mine is a blistering piece of metal and showcases Guns N' Roses at their best. Patience shows the lighter side of Guns N' Roses. All the hits are here with Don't Cry, Sweet Child O'Mine, Patience, Yesterdays, Paradise City, Yesterdays, Knockin' on Heaven's Door, Civil War and Since I don't have you.

Guns N' Roses topped Billboard 200 albums with Appetite for Destruction and Use Your Illusion II. I have every album released by Guns N' Roses.

Say what you will about Axl Rose- but his band, Guns N' Roses is one of the best metal acts in history. With more than 100 million records sold, who can argue with the success of this band.

Velvet Revolver can dream about having the same success as G N' R- but the truth of the matter is that Velvet Revolver will never ever have the same success as Guns N' Roses.

This is one of the best greatest hits collection released- not to mention that it was #1 on the Canadian album chart.

With #1 videos for November Rain, Don't Cry and You Could Be Mine- the success of the band speaks for itself.

While other reviewers put down this Guns N' Roses collection for various reasons, I still felt since their biggest hits are included in this package (even if some are cover versions) and remastered I'm not complaining. I also picked this cd up at a local store for an extremely low price so I felt I got alot of music for the money! Hits such as "Paradise City", "Welcome To The Jungle", "Sweet Child O' Mine", "You Could Be Mine", "Knockin' On Heaven's Door" (a Bob Dylan cover), "Live And Let Die" (a Paul McCartney And Wings cover), "November Rain", "Don't Cry" and "Sympathy For The Devil" (a Rolling Stones cover) are here plus five more songs. The sound quality is excellent due to remastering and it's all put together in an attractive digipack. If you enjoy eighties rock such as Poison, Cinderella, Motley Crue and Dokken then you'll enjoy this collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars GnR Greatest Hits March 26, 2005
Format:Audio CD
First off, a Greatest Hits album is, by definition, a compilation of a band's greatest 'hits'. So, quit complaining about the omission of tracks like Mr Brownstone and Nightrain, because although they are great songs, they were never released as singles!

To the kid who called Guns n Roses 'just another 80s hair metal band with no talent', i'd like to invite you to take your infinitely great taste in music elsewhere in future. Guns n Roses were the Led Zeppelin of thier time (though somehow i doubt you know who Lep Zep are..).

Now, on to the album; i'd call this an adequate collection that showcases the different sides to GnR; sometimes raucous, sometimes sweet; always brilliant. The only weak songs are the final few tracks, where the GnR veteran listener is left wanting more of the earlier sound and not the decidedly average [but still listenable] music from GnR's twilight years.

Overall, a good album. From the rockin' Welcome To The Jungle, to the beautiful November rain, this album provides a decent collection for the first time/casual fan
