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.
