Just spotted Guns N' Roses 'Use Your Illusion' & 'Use Your Illusion II' CDs for £3.97 each at Tesco Entertainment. This is the absolute cheapest I've ever seen either of these discs ('normal' price is usually around £6-7.)

Next best price for both is £4.98 at Amazon (also a great price!).

Guns N' Roses: Use Your Illusion I - £3.97

Guns N' Roses: Use Your Illusion II - £3.97

Four years after becoming an uninvited guest at the party that is the music industry with its seminal debut, APPETITE FOR DESTRUCTION, Guns N' Roses released USE YOUR ILLUSION I &II. Thanks to a reckless approach toward life and music, G N' R was constantly at the centre of controversy and the result was that much of it was chronicled on this two-volume project. By this time, original drummer Steven Adler had been dismissed due to alleged drug dependency problems and was replaced by the Cult's Matt Sorum. Keyboardist Dizzy Reed was also added as a member.

ILLUSION I found Axl Rose rantingon songs about being sued by a neighbor ("Right Next Door to Hell"), dysfunctional relationships ("Back Off Bitch"), and a drug overdose ("Coma"). Amid all the spewed bile, G N' Rscored three Top 40 hits with a Wings cover ("Live and Let Die"), a piano-driven, Elton John-flavoured epic ("November Rain"), and a hard-edged ballad ("Don't Cry"). Celebrity cameos include a then unknown Shannon Hoon, Hanoi Rocks' Mike Monroe, and Alice Cooper, who makes a particularly sinister contribution to "The Garden".

ILLUSION II lacks the hits of the first volume and also doesn't overflow with as much bile, aside from a couple of exceptions. Axl Rose howls at the editors of Spin, Kerrang, and HitParader 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, G'N'R tackles an old Dylan nugget ("Knockin'on Heaven's Door"), includes 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").
