Guns N' Roses: Appetite for Destruction

Sound — 9
Appetite for destruction is the world best classic rock CD (not metal) on the face of god green planet. This cd takes you on a journey through the "most dangerous band in the world". Slash hits those impossible solos like hes eating a burrito and playing with ease. Axl's singing is amazing and whoever says different should go f--k themselfs. Izzy' has great riffs and plays so fluidy. Duff's bass licks are mezmerizing. Steve's drums sound like they are pounding through your heart. Amazing everthing.

Lyrics — 9
The lyrics are all about rock. Sex, drugs and a lot of r'n'r. They wrote all of the songs except forIts so easy which was written by Axl & West Arkeen, and Anything goes by Chris Weber. GN'R wrote get lyrics. Some of my favs r "You can have anything you want, but you better nit take it from me" track 1. "Your daddy works in porno" track 8. "Turn around bitch I got a use for you" track 2 and finally "The Show usually starts around 7, get on stage round 9, get on the bus round 11, sippin and drinking and fellin fine" track 5.

Overall Impression — 10
This is the cd that launched the legends and well it is god-like. This was my first gn'r cd I got and now I have all of them. My favorite songs from this is Mr. Browstone, It's So Easy, Nighttrain and My Michelle. I love the art work of the girl getting raped by the robot. If you think you have a CD collestion and this is not in it, you suck.

    what an album, i lovED guns n roses, and ledzppln1969 yur right all it is is axl and some losers that just wanna be in "Guns N Roses" ..... any way this album is definitly up there with back in black
    this album is what rock 'n' roll is ****ing about. all these new bands that think they're rock but are really pop-rock should listen to this album to see what rock really is. it also features one of the top 10 greatest guitarists ever.
