Your favourite albums from former and current GN'R members

Recommended Posts

Take the best from JuJu Hounds, IFOS and Pawnshop Guitars and you could have had an amazing Guns N' Roses record.

Or Chinese Democracy/Contraband. The band had at least two great albums left in them.

Yeah but I was talking more about the time when it all ended. I still don't and never will get CD. It just doesn't do it for me.

Yeah, but that's just your opinion. There are many other fans on this forum.

Duff's Believe in Me is one of the worst albums I have ever heard. I have it on cassette somewhere. 

There are a couple clunkers like the rap song and the song with Jeff Beck but I always thought it was pretty solid overall. I have it on cassette and CD ;)

Swamp Song from 2:15 on I always thought it sounded like Axl singing in his lower register with Duff.

I've still never listened to it. I've been meaning to get to that for like 30 years now. I am the Axl Rose of listening.

CD for me is similar to an arranged marriage. I had no choice but to marry it, and it took me years to understand and appreciate it.

Duff - Believe in Me

Izzy - Izzy Stradlin and the Ju Ju Hounds 

Slash - Slash 

SMK&C - World on Fire 

Axl - Chinese Democracy and all the leaks from the unreleased songs. The General is my favorite definitely.

1. All Slash's albums (SP, VR & MK&C) 

2. Duff - Believe in Me

That's It. 

Pawnshop was OK & I haven't given Loaded or Izzy enough time outside of the first Ju Ju album. 

Everyone else is bargain bin. 

Only DJ credit I like is that Saint's of Los Angeles was good.

Neurotic Outsiders  ( Nobody ever really mentions this album, so I guess it isn't all that great, but I fucking loved it)

 

Finally, somebody mentioned it. Absolute gem of an album.

generally speaking, I prefer the stuff Duff was doing in the mid-90's to early 2000's. that is a chain of albums with similarities, starting with Seattlehead which was actually written much earlier.

live stuff with Billy Idol & co, resulting in Neurotic Outsiders. the album and its singles included some Duff stuff, like Six Feet Under and Seattlehead

later, working at Beautiful Disease, recruiting band called The Gentlemen, later renamed to Loaded, who re-recorded some BD stuff (while there was other act called The Gentlemen, which was Duff with other dude, different band from the early Loaded).

also 10 Minute Warning was released, with some Duff authored stuff (Mezz)

so there are some multiple versions of Seattlehead, Mezz and some other stuff.

all those things are massively underrated and underpromoted.

this punkrockish era ended with The Project (to become Velvet Revolver later) in late 2002, when Duff started shifting from punkrockish to rockish spheres, completely abandoning the distinctive late 90's feeling of his stuff.

even after VR went on hiatus, the reactivated Loaded never had the same feeling as the original ones - more or less it was just a mediocre rock.

Izzy Stradlin And The Ju Ju Hounds - Izzy Stradlin And The Ju Ju Hounds

Izzy Stradlin - 117

Izzy Stradlin - River

Izzy Stradlin - Ride On

Izzy Stradlin - On Down The Road

Tommy Stinson - Village Gorilla Head

Tommy Stinson - One Man Mutiny

Slash's Snakepit - It's Five O Clock Somewhere

Slash - Slash

Gilby Clarke - Pawnshop Guitars 

Velvet Revolver - Contraband

Velvet Revolver - Libertad

 

I also dig Izzy's other albums, but the first 5 definitely win it for me. 

I don't really like Duff's solo albums. I really liked the How To Be A Man EP though. Hope his next one will be more like that. Loaded is ok, but not anything special to me. A bit generic really. I did like the Neurotic Outsiders one! 

Slash's other albums (with Myles) are ok. Getting more and more repetitive/generic with each album. Apocalyptic love was the one I enjoyed most. The last two were just meh. The other Snakepit album has good stuff on it too, but it's not very consistant. 

Gilby Clarke has other ok albums, but Pawnshop is the only one that stands out for me. 

Adler and Dizzy never did anything worthwhile out of GnR. 

Sorum's solo album is shit. 

 

Never liked Buckethead. The guy should focus his output more on quality instead of quantity imo. He's gifted, but it's just a gigantic sea of whatever hel feels like recording today. 

The only other Finck stuff I know is with NiN, and I never liked them. 

I love Tommy's solo stuff, but I never liked The Replacements. 

Never liked Ron Thal solo. 

Ashba never did anything that's good in or outside of GnR. 

Same goes for Pitman. 

Brain is involved in a lot of projects I really don't care for. 

 

Am I forgetting anything?

I like most of Izzy's stuff and the mellow stuff from Buckethead (Colma, Population Override, Electric Tears, Look Up There etc.).

The other members solo and side projects just don't do much for me.

On the other Axl could sing the phone book and I'd probably enjoy it. :lol:
