This brief collection of videos was recorded live in Tokyo, 1992, as part of Guns N' Roses' worldwide Use Your Illusion tour. This volume (part "II") provides some songs from GN'Rs' #1 billboard hit, including "Estranged," "You Could Be Mine," "So Fine," and "Knockin' On Heaven's Door." It also includes older hits such as "Sweet Child O' Mine," "Rocket Queen," "Move to the City," and of course, "Paradise City." The performance highlights also include a live rendition of the "Godfather" theme and a guitar/drum solo.
Axl Rose was a truly great frontman. One problem he did have was all the damned running around on stage. The "UYI I" video is even worse, but here he's still running about constantly, and it just makes his singing less effective. He quickly runs out of breath. It's one of the reasons I felt the intense criticism from fans regarding the 2002 VMA performance was moot - his live voice has never been a good indication of his studio vocals. Sometimes he delivers great live performances, but a lot of times - such as here - his energetics make him lose steam too fast. His voice is still awesome, but it's not as awesome as it could be if he just cut out the lame running back and forth from one end of the stage to the other.
Anyway, apart from Axl's somewhat shady vocals, for the most part this is excellent. Slash looks a bit drugged out and he's not into the guitar stuff as he could be - he's Axl's opposite, he just stands there and plays the notes. He could use a bit of energy injection.

Con oltre 90 milioni di dischi venduti, sono annoverati tra i musicisti di maggior successo nella storia del rock. Lo stile sonoro, l'immagine trasgressiva e le costanti performance dal vivo, li aiutarono ad occupare un posto di prestigio nella scena musicale tra gli anni ottanta e novanta. Hanno contribuito allo sviluppo dello sleaze rock e in particolare della sua variante sleaze metal, che mescola rock and roll, glam metal, punk e blues.

Guns N' Roses is an American hard rock band, formed in Los Angeles, California in 1985. The band, led by frontman and co-founder Axl Rose, has gone through numerous line-up changes and controversy since its formation. Guns N' Roses have released five studio albums, two EPs, one live album, and three music video DVDs within its career. The band is currently working on the infamous album Chinese Democracy, which has been in production for over a decade. Once released the album will be the first original recording from Guns N' Roses since the 1991 releases of Use Your Illusion I and Use Your Illusion II.
Guns N' Roses have sold an estimated 90 million albums worldwide, including 39 million in the United States. The band's 1987 major label debut album, entitled Appetite for Destruction, has sold 27 million copies worldwide and reached number one on the United States Billboard 200. In addition, the album charted three Top 10 hits on the Billboard Hot 100, including "Sweet Child o' Mine" which reached number one. 1991's Use Your Illusion I and Use Your Illusion II debuted on the two highest spots on the Billboard 200 and have sold a combined 14 million copies in the United States alone.
While glam metal was the leading genre in record sales, video charts and radio airplay, Guns N' Roses offered a grittier, more traditional take on rock music, and won many fans who admired their authenticity.
