Album Sales: 7,000,000
First Release Date: September 1991

The fourth studio album from Guns N' Roses. It was the second of two albums released in conjunction with the "Use Your Illusion Tour", the other being "Use Your Illusion I". In fact, in the original vinyl releases, both Use Your Illusion albums are double albums. Material for all two/four discs (depending on the medium) was recorded at the same time and there was some question of releasing a "quadruple album".

"Use Your Illusion II" reached #1 in the Billboard Top 200 and the UK Albums Chart. The album produced five singles:
"You Could Be Mine"
"Knockin' On Heaven's Door"
"Yesterdays"
"Civil War"
"Estranged"

Despite hard rock being the most uncool music in the 2000, Guns N' Roses will probably go in the history as the most solid rock band of the '90's. Absolutely well produced, with amazing back catalgue, they deliver a hit after hit. Both of the Illusion-albums are definetly essential, a must get for any serious rock fanatic.

All in all, Use Your Illusion II is probably the best example of really solid songcrafting in the rock scenario. This album is an instant classic. Kids, listen to this if you already haven't.
