No doubt their best album. Their 3 standout hits, Welcome To The Jungle, Paradise City, and Sweet Child O' Mine may be great, but there are others on the album which are also very good; (Night Train, Mr. Brownstone, My Michelle, etc). Unlike some bands' albums, each song on Appetite For Destruction is unique in its own way, they won't bore you by sounding the same. You can listen to every song on this CD and not find any filler. Different than other '80s bands.

Overall Impression — 9
Guns N ' Roses were different from other hair metal bands of the '80s; this might be because they came late (1987 debut). Best 5 songs from album: #5 Mr. Brownstone, #4 My Michelle, #3 Welcome to the Jungle, #2 Sweet Child O' Mine, #1. Paradise City.
