Almost as Good as AFD,
A Kid's Review
This review is from: Use Your Illusion I (Audio CD)
I won't compare to AFD, because they are both spectacular. I'll just review the songs one by one
-Right Next Door to Hell-9/10 Opens with almost as much power as Welcome to the Jungle. Really good.
-Dust N' Bones-9/10 Really catchy, has a great ending.
-Live and Let Die-9.5/10 Great cover that made this song by Paul Mcartney very popular. This version is the best.
-Don't Cry-10/10 Part of the Don't Cry/November Rain/Estranged trilogy, has a lot of meaning through great lyrics and music.
-Perfect Crime-9.5/10 Fast and furious, a really good song that is easy to listen to over and over. Uses the word f*** awesomely.
-You Ain't the First-7.5/10 The weakest on the album, would have fit in better on GN'R Lies.
-Bad Obsession-9/10 Totally adictive, but kind of ends weak.
-Back Off Bitch-8.5/10 Really good song about a girl that Axl doesn't like, sweet beginning and great chorus.
-Double Talkin' Jive-8.5/10 Not enough lyrics, but the ones that are there rock, also great classical guitar solo at the end.
-November Rain-10/10 9 minutes of masterful balladness, with a cool rock ending to one of GN'R's greatest epics
-The Garden-8/10 The parts where Axl sings are great, but Alice Cooper's part just doesn't make it seem like the same song.
-Garden of Eden-9.5/10 Axl sings very quickly so you should be looking at the lyrics in the book so you can understand him. On a side note, the music video is superb if you ever see it.
-Don't Damn Me-10/10 Possibly my favorite on the album, just plain awesome. "Sometimes I could get even/ Sometimes I could give up/ Sometimes I could give/ Sometimes I never give a f***" is really cool.
-Bad Apples-9/10 Great intro with the most addictive chorus I have ever heard.
-Dead Horse-9.5/10 Interesting acoustic intro, but it turns into the best rock on the album. Probably should have been on the GH.
-Coma-10/10 Simply a 10 minute masterpiece by Axl and Slash. Kudos to you two for making a rock song just as epic as November Rain on the SAME ALBUM! Best album ender ever.
Thanks for reading this review of a 146.5/160, no filler, 16 song masterpiece.
