Guns N' Roses: Appetite for Destruction

Sound — 10
I reckon this is the best rock album ever created. Some of the most recognised songs in history is all packed up on this single album. You name it, this album has got it. You would be missing a part of rock history if you don't own your own copy. The thing I like most about this album is the strangely addictive guitar riffs. Songs such as 'Welcome To The Jungle' and 'Sweet Child O'Mine', which are two of my favourites, have a unique riff which makes it strangely addictive. Don't forget Axl's voice gives that finishing magical touch. Truely amazing album the one that I would treasure with me til death.

Lyrics isn't a huge concern for me with a song, but the lyrics in this album just makes it hard not to notice. The title for each song is curious enough, but the lyrics them selves are cleverly written. It's almost like a story put together. I love the lyrics. Enough said.

Overall Impression — 10
Appetite for Destruction was released before I even existed on this planet, but I feel like I was born to listen to it. This album was created by a bunch of guys who lived in a messed up house taking drugs and readin' porn mags. But those wierdos just got their names into the list of the rock legends of history. Sure, their future material didn't do as well, but they made the world rock once, and that's good enough for me. True legends never die. And that's why I'm listening to this album even while I'm writing this review.
