Guns N' Roses - Appetite For Destruction

Guns N' Roses' debut Appetite For Destruction was a turning point for hard-rock in the late '80s – it was a dirty, dangerous and mean record in a time when heavy metal meant nothing but a good time. On the surface, Guns N' Roses may appear to celebrate the same things as their peers – namely, sax, liquor, drugs and rock 'n' roll – but there is a nasty edge to their songs, since Axl Rose doesn't see much fun in the urban sprawl of L.A. and its parade of heavy metal thugs, cheap women, booze and crime. The music is as nasty as the lyrics, wallowing in a bluesy, metallic hard-rock borrowed from Aerosmith, AC/DC and countless faceless hard-rock bands of the early '80s. The twin-guitar interplay of Slash and Izzy Stradlin, who spit out riffs and solos better than any band since the Rolling stones, and that's what makes Appetite For Destruction the best metal record of the late '80s.

Sounds awful. Plain and simple. Off center, dirty out of the box... I don't even understand why Geffen sells that.

Reviewer: aging rocker
The vinyl was quiet but the presentation veiled, as if listening to them playing in the next room. Found an original Japan pressing and it was completely alive and involving. Strangely the original was also by Geffen.
