The box set itself is beautiful -- sturdy cardboard box with full-bleed artwork, 3 discs with more cool Ralph Steadman artwork on them, and a pick.
Disc 2 has some real highlights -- the acoustic tracks alone, make this set a worthwhile buy.
A few minor gripes: Box set is supposed to be THE comprehensive collection of material from Slash's debut, but they left off one song -- "Chains and Shackles" -- and instead include 2 versions of the regrettable "Beautiful, Dangerous" with Fergie. The "radio mix" of this track isn't all that interesting. If they really had to include this track twice, they should have released the instrumental version which was available for streaming on the ESPN website for a while.
Another "buyer beware" is that the offer for a free poster "Slash Fanwall" is expired, so if you buy this set now, you want be able to take advantage of this offer.
Best tracks on the album: "Ghost," "Back from Cali (acoustic),"By the Sword," "Watch This (live)," "Paradise City," "Mother Maria," "Baby Can't Drive" & "Sweet Child O' Mine (acoustic)."
You will notice that most of the tracks I listed as "best tracks" are on the bonus CD.
Now, as for this particular version of the album, I would have to say it's unbeatable. Mine came with a Slash guitar pick(which I've been putting to good use; the image on the pick has stayed intact), an advertisement offer for his poster (which I'm afraid to say has expired now, I should have ordered when it came out), and two discs. The first disc was the original album, which I've already stated was wonderful. The second disc is a grab bag of goodies from Slash's past, present, and, with a little luck, his future. There's some more work with Fergie and the Black-Eyed Peas, some great song demos, and a blistering English version of Sahara that I just can't stop blasting.
With this album, you just can't stop rocking. It has my seal of approval.
