Reseña de álbum

Once Appetite for Destruction finally became a hit in 1988, Guns N' Roses bought some time by delivering the half-old/half-new LP G N' R Lies as a follow-up. Constructed as a double EP, with the "indie" debut Live ?!*@ Like a Suicide coming first and four new acoustic-based songs following on the second side, G N' R Lies is where the band metamorphosed from genuine threat to joke. Neither recorded live nor released by an indie label, Live ?!*@ Like a Suicide is competent bar band boogie, without the energy or danger of Appetite for Destruction. The new songs are considerably more problematic. "Patience" is Guns N' Roses at their prettiest and their sappiest, the most direct song they recorded to date. Its emotional directness makes the misogyny of "Used to Love Her (But I Had to Kill Her)" and the pitiful slanders of "One in a Million" sound genuine. Although the cover shrugs them off as a "joke," Axl Rose's venom is frightening — there's little doubt that he truly does believe that "f****ts" come to America from another country and that "n****rs" should stay out of his way. Since he wasn't playing a character on the remainder of the album, there's little doubt this is from the heart as well. And what makes it harder to dismiss is the musical skill of the band, which makes the country-fried boogie of "Used to Love Her," the bluesy revamp of "You're Crazy," and the tough, paranoid fever dream of "One in a Million" indelible. So, you either listen to the music and are satisfied or else listen to the lyrics and become disturbed not only by Rose's intentions, but by the millions of record buyers that identified with him.

Unbelievable!

Interesting, I read your reviews of N.W.A and couldn't help but notice that you weren't quite as concerned about racism, sexism and violence against women, the police and whites in these reviews?? Is it all possible that you are every bit as racist as you claim Axl to be? I strongly suggest that you think about that.

Note to iTunes reviewer on One in a Million

NEWSFLASH: Slash is black (His mother is african american and his father is English). Axl explained what he meant by his lyrics at the time and Slash said then, and still says now, that they were in no way an indication of Axl or the bands feelings on race. Body Count, which last time I checked was an all black band lead by Ice-T, used to open for Guns and even Ice-T said it was ridiculous to deem them racist. The Homophobic accusations are along the same wavelength. Axl openly idolized the song writing of Elton John and Freddie Mercury. This uneducated review is an embarrassment to iTunes.

A gem, especially for a hardcore fan

This album is neither the most popular nor the most mainstream. However, I decided to write this since I am irritated by all the lame "this is not so great, get their other stuff blah blah blah" comments I see on this board. First of all first four songs are not live, it's a common misconception. The songs were taped in the studio with the crowd sound added in. If you look it up, Axl says it himself, I think it was in Hit Parader for 1989. Anyway, the first four songs are pure 80s rock n roll at its' finest. Mix brilliance of Guns' rendition of Aerosmith's Mama Kin (that is better then the original as Steven Tyler himself mentioned), with energy of Reckless Life/Nice Boys and raw power of Izzy's Move to the City, and you've got the first part of the record. Mind you, these songs are for an experienced gunner, so if you are new to Guns this should not be your first album. But the bottom line is, these songs give a great representation of where the band came from and, for an experienced fan, they are a must have. The second part of the record is even better. Great country styled guitars, Axl's raw voice and cool bluesy licks a la Keith Richards by Slash produce a powerful combo. These songs are more radio friendly then the first part of the record (except perhaps for the lyrics) In my opinion this exposes a different Stonesy side of the band and it sounds just great. The PC people may not like the lyrics but I think Axl, like everyone else, needs to speak his mind, that's why we love him. Bottom line is, it is a great album that exposes a different side of the band. I wish they done another album like that -- there is no big production, just some guitars, a different old country kind of sound and the band. If you are new to Guns N Roses, buy Appetite and Illusions first. When you love every song on those, it's time to get Lies. For serious gunners this is a must-have, make no mistake about it!

Biografía

Fecha de formación: Los Angeles, CA, 1985

Género: Rock

Años de actividad: '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

A finales de los 80, Guns N' Roses trajo de vuelta al rock & roll crudo y feo e impactó en las listas. Mientras Slash e Izzy Stradlin escupían ferozmente un duelo de riffs de guitarra digno de Aerosmith o los Stones, Axl Rose chillaba sus historias sobre sexo, drogas y apatía en la gran ciudad. El debut de la banda de 1987, Appetite for Destruction, se disparó al número uno un año después de su edición, cuando MTV comenzó a pasar "Sweet Child O' Mine" y se convirtieron en una de las bandas más importantes...
