#RockClassics - 30 anniversary of Use Your Illusion I&II

in #music4 months ago


Hi,

for today's #RockClassic, by @uwelang, we have another album, that was launched exactly 30 years ago.

Well, to be more precise, we have two albums, User Your Illusion I and User Your Illusion II, by Guns N' Roses.

I really like this band, even if some friends don't ditch them, but for me, Guns N' Roses is a true rock band, that matured with these two albums, as the songs are covering a lot of genres.

The covers of both albums are equal, only the chromatic being different, and they are copies of Raphael's painting, The School of Athens.



Being launched on the same day, both competed in the charts. They've been direct on top from the first week, II being sold better than I.

I like on both album the use of classic instruments, especially of the piano.

Knockin' On Heaven's Door, the cover of the Bob Dylan song, is simply amazing.



There are so many amazing songs on these two albums, that I can't choose which is better.

Love the ballads from the first, but the cover from the second is purely divine.



So, which one is your favourite? Do you know this band?
