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!
