Guns and Roses challenge

When the Use your Illusion albums came out in 1991 I think most people felt there were some good songs there for sure, but there was some filler. Many of us had hoped that the follow-up to Appetite for destruction would be as good or better than that 1987 album. However that wasn't the case. Yet what if you had the chance to put together one full length album out of the two existing Use your Illusion albums? Well, here is the chance as I am asking anyone who wants to participate to take the next three weeks to:

1)Listen to the two Use your Illusion albums.
2)Narrow them down to a list of one album's worth of music. So you need to trim off anything you think is filler, too long or just doesn't belong.
3)Put the song titles in the track order that you think would work best.

-Then three weeks from today on April 25 I will post my list and you can either post yours in my comments section or your put yours up at your own blog.

How many songs you pick for your album is up to you, just use your judgement as to what you think the length of this one album should be. So are there any takers or any suggestions on how to make this better?

**My twenty year old album review of Appetite for destruction will be up on Thursday.

Great idea. I remember making a comp tape for the car back in the day, wish I could remember what songs I had on it. I listened to both albums but the one I spun most was II.

I'll que it up tonight. Should have one great album from the two but I couldn't agree more about the good songs stuffed between filler. That's a perfect description of those two records.

I have to admit, no matter what record we put together from these two will be VASTLY inferior to Appetite, which is an all timer.

I always did this with The Beatles White Album, while it was a great double disc it had the potential of being an absolute masterpiece.
