|A good solid attempt at some covers. I wasn't as disappointed as some. Track 1 was a surprise, and Down on the Farm was cool... But for a band this big, this is a disappointment.

|Loved Apatite, hated this one! What were they thinking? The best song on the disk is Hair of the Dog and Nazereth did it MUCH better!
||Date: October 11, 2001 at 19:44|
|What a piss poor cd for a very talented band to release. It seems like they put no effort into it whatsoever. Don't pay over $2 for this Pop coaster
||Date: January 3, 2002 at 7:56|
|A late-in-the-game cash grab that often occurs when big-name acts run out of original thoughts and/or have to fulfill contractual obligations to their record companies. Totally gratutious product that smart consumers know well to avoid.

|what happened to the G'N'R i used to love?
||Date: February 27, 2002 at 13:49|
|i liked all the g'n'r cd's put out but this one just sucked. they could of did alot better.

|Worst cd ever by this band. Waste of time.....
||Date: May 2, 2002 at 17:30|
|There are about 4 songs on here I like. The rest is pretty boring. I liked the remake of Hair of the Dog- far more aggressive than the original. This album definately wasn't 'Appetite,' but that's tough to match.

|POOR GNR, POOR GUYS! Here comes the collapse of the legend at the end. We had seen the signs already from 'Use Your Illusion' series. Yes, this is really THE END of the movie. I wish they would never release this and loose more respect. Huh, I'm goin crazy! they cannot make even cover songs anymore. My favourite 'Hair-Of-The-Dog' is sure that of Britny Fox. No no friends, the time has come, TITANIC has sunk eventually!!!!

|Hey BARIS, The song HAIR OF THE DOG is a NAZARETH tune from the early 70's. Check out NAZARETH's album of the same name for some excellent 70's hard rock. Britney Fox? hahahahahahahaha
||Date: September 17, 2002 at 16:41|
|This isn't my favorite G'N'R' but I don't hate every song. I like this version of Hair of the Dog better than Nazareth's or Britny Fox's. No offence Baris but I think Britny's just plain sucks. I like Nazareth's but I thought G'N'R' breathed more life into it. I usually like the originals the best except in these cases: YOU REALLY GOT ME, SMOKIN' IN THE BOYS ROOM, AND CUM ON FEEL THE NOISE. I thought the remade In A Gadda Da Vida was subpar. That may be blasphemy to some folks.
||Date: September 17, 2002 at 16:45|
|I think you have to concede that Van Halen kicked the Kinks asses. I respect anyone's opinion though if they feel differently. No one hears the same music the same way.
||Date: September 18, 2002 at 2:55|
|Thank you for both of your opinions friends. So no problem. Steve, I heard Nazareth's 'Hair Of The Dog' somewhere although I don't have that album. And for me this original version was sure better than that of Britny Spears!!!!(But after your appraisal on that album be sure I'll try to get it, thanks) Here I'm only comparing BF and GNR. I like that of BF because it came in somewhat more straight, clean and easy-to-listen tune. Anyway the truth is that after a historical masterpiece as 'Appetite'
||Date: September 18, 2002 at 3:03|
|the other albums of GNR never gave me the same taste. For me those are so boring and far below the 'Appetite...' standarts, even the cover songs (For example I didn't like 'Live And Let Die' also). So if I rank Hair Of The Dog versions, I put first;Nazareth, second;BF and the last;still GNR unfortunately...
||Date: September 18, 2002 at 10:30|
|I agree that this album doens't match 'Appetite' Baris- of course not many do. This is still my favorite rendition of Hair of the Dog though with all due respect. I like Axel's voice on album. Honestly, he needs to calm down the drinking, smoking, and drugging so he doesn't sound like a worn out drunk live- LOL. I like Slash on guitar too. He may sound sloppy to some but I like it.
||Date: September 18, 2002 at 12:03|
|Make that 'Axl's.'
||Date: January 20, 2003 at 2:37|
|Really no surprises here, except the first song. I've heard the originals of many of these songs, and for the most part the originals were better. G N R particularly mangle the FEAR song 'I Don't Care About You'. Skip this album and get G N R's other stuff.

|By releasing Manson lyrics, Im sure Ill kick any GNR member in the face the next time I see them.
||Date: June 2, 2003 at 20:37|
|AXL ROSE does CHARLIE MANSON...YEAH! That's what made people wanna check this release out. In this late in the game, it's pretty sad when MANSON gets more attention than the actual music. Axl Rose took it up the ass one too many times and this album is the end result. Pure garbage. I say we free Charlie Manson so he can lay a HELTER SKELTER on Axl's ass!!!!

|Why do people feel the need to bitch about all the albums past Appetite? They all rock, this one especially. Call your selves fans? Buy it, add it to the collection of amazings albums done by the greatest hard rock band in the world.
||Date: January 2, 2004 at 15:50|
|I thought this CD kicked ass. Obviously nobody here enjoys punk as a lot of the covers were old punk covers. How can you people say this is lame?? Down on the farm, Ain't it Fun, Attitude and I don't care about you kick serious ass. Don't listen to some of the peoples un-educated opinions on here. There is a few clunkers like Human Being, Axl's voice gets a little grating after awhile. He should of sang it in his Mr.Brownstowne voice. It would have been truer to the Dolls version.

|This album is for me the best rock album from 1993-1999.Not even any of nirvana or korn's album can beat that! ain't it fun is my favourite.rating:7/10
||Date: May 25, 2004 at 8:33|
|I'm sorry but IMHO this an album of tired and uninspired cover songs produced by a band very short on ideas . This is a trading water excercise that ultimately turned into their swansong. A pity because for a while GNR were the most dangerous band in the world. With this release they lost almost all of their credibility.
||Date: May 26, 2004 at 0:47|
|I am not sure why but i think its the downfall of hard rock and the rise of alternative and grunge or problem withaxl or something that cause this album to not as quality as expected from the calibre of gun'n'roses!

|I think I might be one of the few to agree with Johnny, but this album does indeed kick ass. I am a fan of old school punk, and Guns N Roses pick out some great tracks ('Down On The Farm', 'New Rose', and 'Raw Power'). I could have done without the 50's cover that started off the album. If anyone could tell me the origin of 'Black Leather' that would be appreciated. I see that it is says original done by 'The Sex Pistols' but all I can find is that it was an unreleased Steve Jones track. 8/10
||Date: December 2, 2004 at 18:34|
|These guys should have called it a day before this one. Too many quarrels, not enough time.
||Date: February 16, 2005 at 4:31|
|There are fewer more appropriately titled discs out there. This truly is a spaghetti incident, as it is messy and not particularly tasty. In fact, I think it's awful and I hate to think of the mindset of these guys, on top of the musical world and shooting themselves down with a covers release. What an uncomprehendable idea! Absolutely useless disc.

|Must agree with RokStar - this record sucks your mama's donkeys ass !! Though i've been partial to 'Since i dont have you' on a few occasions when i've been in a more mellow mood. G'N'R = R.I.P dudez.

|Wow such maturity shown in these posts. I'm a fan of this release, a lot of good songs, a few not so good but listen to this occasionally. Down on the Farm(one of the best tracks).
||Date: December 18, 2007 at 7:58|
|When I bought it -must have been 93/94- I thought it was the biggest shit on earth, nothing to do with what I expected from G&R. Sometimes I give it a try and maybe I can save a few songs like Down On The Farm but, still nothing to do with what I expected from G&R
||Date: July 22, 2008 at 12:17|
|I wanted to give this a big fat '0', but this site won't let me. I heard appetite for destruction first (i was 11), since then i went on to buy all GNR's album and have been continually dissapointed and quite frankly, disgusted.
||Date: May 17, 2012 at 16:48|
|I bought this album as it was the last one I needed to complete my collection and I was impressed with the video for 'Since I Don't Have You.' Unfortunately after that song the album turns very bad indeed with another 11 songs to trawl through. I have tried many times but can't get to the end. A highlight of the album is Axl's funny English accent on 'Down On The Farm'. I don't know what to make of the song but it's very funny. I thought Nazareth's 'Hair Of The Dog' might be quite good as the Britny Fox version is excellent. Sadly again I was dissapointed and it is the worst of the three versions available. Duff also sings on the album a few times and his voice is just bad. I hate his voice. Axl's the singer not you. One last irritating aspect of this album is not related to music but to the writing in the booklet. Axl says 'Do yourself a favour and seek out the originals.' Firstly no I won't as if they don't sound good coming from you I'm hardly likely to like the original versions...
||Date: May 17, 2012 at 16:48|
|...and secondly Axl, what was the point of recording the covers if you're just going to tell us the originals are better and that we should listen to those instead? I feel this album should have been released in the middle of a tour or as a bonus CD not as a proper album because it just sounds bad. Avoid!!

|ok covers release by the GUNS N ROSES!when you re on top of the world ,you can release whatever you want but i m sure that all GNR fans would love new songs instead of covers!on the other hand this is a fine collection and quite enjoyable overall!highlights are 'since i dont have you','new rose','down on the farm' and 'hair of the dog'

|What's the point of releasing this album?
|From: Doghouse Reilly
||Date: November 9, 2017 at 16:41|
|You may be surprised, Tito, but I agree with you. The band owed their label another album, and they clearly were getting nowhere writing original songs, Axl being Axl. There was a real push on to put something out, and not have it take another four years, in a musical climate that was rapidly changing. Which also explains why Duff does so much singing: because they coulldn't get Axl in the studio to do his job. Besides, a lot of this punk stuff is more Duff's thing anyway. But nobody really tried to pretend this was anything other than a slapped-together, stopgap release. And by the time it came out in late '93, I think everybody was pretty exhausted by the whole idea of Guns n' Roses.
