So, no love for the Use Your Illusions here then?
I always going to post that you could make that standard White Album or Tusk cliche about there being a brilliant single album in amongst the filler.
But I've just checked the track listings, and it's nonsense from start to finish. Maybe You ould Be Mine is alright, and the Estranged video was enjoyably crackers, but the rest...

I've just read Slash's autobiography. There was an extract in Observer Music Monthly when it came out, which had a great story about him and Traci Lords. Unfortunately the book doesn't really live up to the promise of that anecdote. Slash is not the most self-aware of people; in fact his world view is unchanged since he turned 13:
I like to drink, I like girls, I like guitars
I agree with just about everyone else - I recall being very excited about Use Your Illusion coming out: it had been a good three years since GnR broke the UK, and You Could Be Mine was the lead single. What a disappointment. I don't think I even bought it in the end.
Or so I thought. Then I read the tracklisting on Wikipedia. It's not as good as the other two albums, but I reckon you could make a decent EP out of it at least.
Anyway, a top 10
