Remastered. Use Your Illusion II finds Axl Rose howling at the editors of Spin, Kerrang, and Hit Parader magazines on the rollicking "Get in the Ring," and addresses the inherent pitfalls of fame on Izzy Stradlin's scathing "Pretty Tied Up (the Perils of Rock n' Roll Decadence)". Elsewhere, they tackle an old Dylan nugget ("Knockin' on Heaven's Door"), and tracks cut for charity and soundtracks ("Civil War," "You Could be Mine"), and an underrated masterpiece about heartbreak that manages to emote both indignation and sorrow without sounding pathetic ("Estranged").
2CD - Deluxe Edition presents the album remastered for first-time ever on CD1. CD2 features 13 unreleased live tracks from London, Paris, Rio de Janeiro, New York and Las Vegas on the UYI 1991/1992 tour all newly mixed.
