5.0 out of 5 stars Insanely Good, July 14, 2003
This review is from: Appetite For Destruction (Audio CD)
In 1987 few bands sounded as raw and powerful as Guns N' Roses. While many bands took on a very polished and sometimes wussy sound, GNR came out with a very real sound. Much of the material on this album reminds me of Aerosmith around 1975-1976. Welcome to the Jungle is probably one of the greatest songs ever. Sweet Child O' Mine is an awesome ballad. Other standouts are Rocket Queen, Paradise City, Mr. Brownstone, Nighttrain, and It's So Easy. While Axl has a good voice for this record Slash is the heart and soul of this record. His guitar playing gives this record some balls. While many other hard rock and hair metal albums of this time have gone forgotten, this gem still stands out and still sells. Why? Because it was real. I read in a magazine that the tracks on the album did not take more than three takes each. It's too bad Axl went on an ego trip and sacked everybody. Now his guitarist wears a KFC bucket on his head. If he knew what was good for him, he would get Slash, Izzy, Duff, and Steven and hit the road without canceling their shows. In 1987 they had something real great. If you don't have this album, get it now.
