Use Your Illusion II: Vinyl 2LP


Release Date: 24 November, 2008

Original Release: 1991


Debuting at No 1 in the States (it hit the top spot in the UK too), and keeping its companion album Use Your Illusion I off of the top spot in the process, 1991’s Use Your Illusion II is considered by many to be the (slightly) more popular album of the pair. Fans had received a taster of the record when lead single ‘You Could Be Mine’ was used on the soundtrack to the movie Terminator 2: Judgement Day. Amongst its 14 tracks are a cover of Bob Dylan’s ‘Knocking On Heaven’s Door’, “get In the Ring’, a tirade against what the band saw as their enemies and critics and an alternative version of ‘Don’t Cry’. It was described by Kerrang! Magazine as, “balladic, bluesy, experimental and peppered with genius” and according to the UK’s Melody Maker, it “rocks like a mutha!"
