Remastered, 180 Gram - USE YOUR ILLUSION I is the third studio album by GnR. It was the first of two albums released in conjunction with the Use Your Illusion Tour, the other being USE YOUR ILLUSION II. The two are thus sometimes considered a double album. In fact, in the original vinyl releases, both USE YOUR ILLUSION albums are double albums. Material for all two/four discs (depending on the medium) was recorded at the same time and there was some discussion of releasing a quadruple album. The album debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard charts, selling 685,000 copies in it's first week, behind USE YOUR ILLUSION II's first week sales of 770,000. Use Your Illusion I has sold 5,502,000 units in the U.S. as of 2010, according to Nielsen Soundscan. Each of the USE YOUR ILLUSION albums have been certified 7x Platinum by the RIAA. It was nominated for a Grammy Award in 1992.

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 center 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 ranting on 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' R scored three Top 40 hits with a Wings cover ("Live and Let Die"), a piano-driven, Elton John-flavored 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."

Guns N' Roses: Izzy Stradlin (vocals, acoustic & electric guitars, percussion); Axl Rose (vocals, piano, keyboards, keyboard programming, sound effects); Slash (acoustic, classical, electric & slide guitars, slide dobro, 6-string bass, background vocals); Duff McKagan (acoustic guitar, bass, background vocals); Dizzy Reed (piano, organ, Clavinet, background vocals); Matt Sorum (drums, percussion, background vocals).

Great all round.

The service was great. The communication responsive and incredibly helpful. Most importantly the record arrived in fantastic quality.

As for the sound, the 180 is like honey in my ear!
