  • This is a must every Guns N’ Roses fan. All of Guns N’ Roses hits are here including the masterpiece- Welcome to the Jungle, the ballads- Don’t Cry and November Rain. Their #1 single, Sweet Child O’Mine is here. You Could Be Mine is a blistering piece of metal and showcases Guns N’ Roses at their best. Patience shows the lighter side of Guns N’ Roses. All the hits are here with Don’t Cry, Sweet Child O’Mine, Patience, Yesterdays, Paradise City, Yesterdays, Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door, Civil War and Since I don’t have you.

    Guns N’ Roses topped Billboard 200 albums with Appetite for Destruction and Use Your Illusion II. I have every album released by Guns N’ Roses.

    Say what you will about Axl Rose- but his band, Guns N’ Roses is one of the best metal acts in history. With more than 100 million records sold, who can argue with the success of this band.

    Velvet Revolver can dream about having the same success as G N’ R- but the truth of the matter is that Velvet Revolver will never ever have the same success as Guns N’ Roses.

    This is one of the best greatest hits collection released- not to mention that it was #1 on the Canadian album chart.

    With #1 videos for November Rain, Don’t Cry and You Could Be Mine- the success of the band speaks for itself.

  • This is an EXCELLENT intro album for anyone who truly loves rock and roll. Guns N’ Roses has quite a history-but this reflects the evolution and changing face of rock, doesn’t it? The great and unforgettable music, the hard teamwork, the infighting between group members, mistakes with drugs, it’s all here. I heard G N’ R on the radio before and decided to try them out a bit further when I bought this CD. I’m glad I did! They rock! The first four songs on the album are from their past albums and demonstrate their ability to do hard rock (“Welcome to the Jungle”) as well as meaningful ballads within the style of rock (“Sweet Child of Mine,” “Patience”). The band then throws in some great versions of McCartney’s “Live and Let Die,” Bob Dylan’s “Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door,” and The Rolling Stones’ “Sympathy for the Devil.” I would highly recommend this album, especially for newcomers who want to see all that this band was. Here’s hoping they ROCK ON!

  • While other reviewers put down this Guns N’ Roses collection for various reasons, I still felt since their biggest hits are included in this package (even if some are cover versions) and remastered I’m not complaining. I also picked this cd up at a local store for an extremely low price so I felt I got alot of music for the money! Hits such as “Paradise City”, “Welcome To The Jungle”, “Sweet Child O’ Mine”, “You Could Be Mine”, “Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door” (a Bob Dylan cover), “Live And Let Die” (a Paul McCartney And Wings cover), “November Rain”, “Don’t Cry” and “Sympathy For The Devil” (a Rolling Stones cover) are here plus five more songs. The sound quality is excellent due to remastering and it’s all put together in an attractive digipack. If you enjoy eighties rock such as Poison, Cinderella, Motley Crue and Dokken then you’ll enjoy this collection.

  • Oh, come on! Look at you all, complaining that your fave GNR song isn’t on it!

    Look at the title of the CD. It says: ‘Guns n’ Roses’ Greatest Hits’, doesn’t it? That means it has – guess what? – the greatest hits of Guns n’ Roses, not the ’specially crafted Guns n’ Roses CD especially for YOU and nobody else’.

    Just check any UK Top 40 Singles Chart Archive (try http://www.everyhit.com and type in Guns n’ Roses in the ‘Artist’ slot) and it will show you how each of their singles rated in the Public Charts.

    Compare the list of their hit singles to the Greatest Hits album and you’ll see that the line up is virtually identical. Cool, Eh?
    Now, where on that list do you see ‘Estranged’, ‘Coma’ or ‘Mr Brownstone’? Nowhere.

    ‘Nuff said.

  • If you’re a Guns N’ Roses fan, there’s only 2 reasons why you should buy this album…- You’re a G’N'R collector- You have a friend who likes G’N'R, but doesn’t own any of the albums. So this album is a great present indeed.A true fan already owns at least “Appetite For Destruction”, “Use Your Illusion I & II” and perhaps “Lies”. “The Spaguetti Incident” was just a plain bad album, but if you liked “Since I Don’t Have You”, you might as well go to ITunes or Napster and download it. People on the previous posts complain a lot for this album not including more songs from “Appetite For Destruction” or “Use Your Illusion” but let me remind them… THIS IS A HITS ALBUM!! …which includes pretty much every single song played on the radio. There’s a lot of fan favorites not included here, but that’s just because THEY WEREN’T HITS!Yet this is a great pick for anyone who is just about to get introduced to this band. Guns N’ Roses could have been the biggest thing since ‘The Beatles’, but we all know how that story ends. So don’t even bother to wait for ‘Chinese Democracy’ to come out.
