for a debut album it is amazing, there's only 1 or 2 track i personally do not like which are gotten and saint is a sinner to, but even those have parts i like, compared to the rest of my music collection it has to be one of my most listened to albums, and it was well worth the money

Appetite is significantly more popular and successful. Popular =/= Better.

His solo demonstrates his diversity as a musician, and his ability to play any style of music he wants to. Appetite doesn't quite showcase that.

Appetite showcases the music he is most known for at it's peak, hard hitting rock and roll, which in itself in amazing and unreal, and I'd own a hundred copies of it just to support what it represents.

Slash showcases a guitarist exploring his musical library, which, IMO, is more impressive than in your face rock and roll.

On the come up we were listening to Grateful Dead and the music started passing through my bowel and out my arsehole as this violet stream of light. I shat music. It was beautiful.

It's pretty good. But it does get pretty boring to listen too after a few listens

It's also difficult to compare an album that's a few months old to one that's a few decades old eh? :P

Also, Appetite was more popular because GnR hijacked Motley Crue's Girls Girls Girls tour and Aerosmith's (Curses, the specific tour escapes me).

Appetite for Destruction made GnR big for the same reason the Beatles became huge, good management. The Beatles paid screaming girls to attend their shows to get the crowd into the performance. The management team working on GnR at the time was able to market the album in a way that got it to #1 on the charts with a single (Sweet Child) simultaneously getting to #1.

Have patience, and we'll see what happens to the popularity of his Solo Album =)

i absolutely love the album. it really shows how versatile he is, and while his playing style might seem different depending on the track, it retains that signature slash sound.
All the way from Palm Springs, just out of detox.
Show him a warm welcome, let's hear some applause

Take it to Modern Rock. Though there is a stickied Guns and Roses thread in 80s, so you can post there if you want.

Step 1: Buy a Gibson SG
Step 2: Insert Green Ringer, EQ, 3 dead squirrels and a microwave into said SG
Step 3: Plug in and freak the **** out.
