Only one year after the breakthrough "Appetite for Destruction", Guns'n'Roses made a comeback in the stores, certainly very enthusiastic about the worldwide craze that their first album had caused. For the anecdote, the single "Sweet Child O' Mine" reached the fourth place of Billboard in 1988, date of the worldwide release of "Lies".

The bad boys' band was riding the wave and "Lies", although qualified as a new album, was in fact not totally one. Indeed, the first four tracks recorded live date from 1986, year of the very confidential distribution of the maxi 45 rpm "Live ?!*@ Like A suicide". Compositions such as "Reckless Life" or "Move To The City", with its "roots" horns, clearly show the brilliant live potential of Guns'n'Roses. These two compositions are full of groove and energy. In addition to these tracks, there are two covers of bands that have influenced the Guns: "Nice Boys" which is a real tribute to Rose Tattoo and a particularly over-the-top "Mama Kin" which has nothing to envy to Aerosmith's interpretation.

The four following tracks were written and recorded in 1988, including the very successful acoustic ballad "Patience" and a new cover, "Your're Crazy", from the first album but in a much more soaring version. As for the title "One In A Million", its lyrics centered on racism and hatred of the other caused quite a few controversies around Axl Rose.

In the end, this album of about thirty minutes remains interesting to own for the fans of Guns'n'Rose. It allows to discover excellent musicians on a field they master to perfection: the stage. And it is necessary to recognize that the first four titles give particularly desire to appreciate in live the whole of the qualities of this young formation already become legendary.

THRASH - Arise is Sepultura's last album from the Thrash/Death period, and it is certainly the most representative of the band before it gradually gets lost in tribal rhythmics.
