Let’s take a moment to recognize the awesomeness that is G N’ R Lies. Sure, It was released in 1988 and Axl Rose has since gone bat shit crazy, but this album is awesome. Out of nowhere, I recently decided to “obtain” this album again, and it still holds up for me. It’s got all the energy and sleaziness that you’d expect from that era.
“LIES” is pretty simple. 8 songs total, all awesome. The first side (yes, the first side) consisted of 4 live-ish songs while the second side consists of 4 stripped down acoustic tracks including Patience (above). The artwork was great, and I’m pretty sure it was the first time I saw boobs.
Cheers to Axl and the boys!
