Guns n’ Roses. Even the name of the band suggests its uncompromising music vision, perennially attracted by opposite extremes. Defiant and violent, but also romantic to the edge of pathetic, GNR music was born without any nuance, to be loved or hated. In debut album the extremes were perfectly combined, but they clashes when Slash and Axl decide to conceive a monumental opus to go down in history. Megalomania of the two leaders - the first one oriented to hard rock irreverence, the second one to melodic research worthy of charts high positions - generates two heterogeneous albums: but extraordinary Izzy Stradlin’ compositional capacity synthesizes opposite impulses in some of the best rock songs of that period. The first Use Your Illusion part is imperfect but, at times, wonderful and epochal. To love or to hate, roundly. I love it.
