Guns N' Roses: Appetite for Destruction

Sound — 10
Guns N Roses sound is uniqu and amazing. Their Appetite For Destruction album is by far their best with great songs one after another. It kicks off with 'Welcome To The Jungle' one of their most popular songs about L.A. rock and roll underground. Then there's My Michelle, Think About You, You're Crazy, Rocket Queen, and Sweet Child O' Mine all about their girlfriends. Sweet Child O' Mine is probably their most popular song, with great vocals, and a legendary solo from Slash.

The lyrics are great additions to the music. Axl has a very unique voice and has helped the band escelate to the level they are now, playing sold-out shows in stadiums. His voice goes perfectly with the music and is amazing. They have many songs about different things like girlfreinds, playing live, and getting wasted.

Overall Impression — 10
It is GNR's best album in their career with all the original members and has amazing song after another. The best songs on the album are 'Sweet Child O' Mine', 'Nightrain', 'Welcome To he Jungle', and 'Its So Easy'. This album is their most successfull and sold over 26 million copies in the world. If it were stolen or lost I would definitely replace it.

    LOL. itd be so disappointing if it comes out and just sucks. like TERRIBLE. aw what am i saying, of course it'll suck. i have a few demos off of it and theyre terrible. AFD is the greatest gnr album ever though
    Slash is one of my fav guitarist of all time. Sweet child of mine has my favourite guitar solo (yes, better than stairway to heaven, no offense to jimmy page)
    greatest album ever i will never get sick of it. Slash is my absolute fav guitar player and the solo at the end of paradise city is amazing. other favourites are rocket queen and its so easy

    You kidding me?Yngwie may be an animal, but that's like comparing Jimmy Page to Herman Li, they just aren't comparable.Slash is amazing, Yngwie is amazing, we all win.OH, and AFD is one of the greatest albums ever.End of story

    Slash's solos kick ass. AFD is definitely my favourite album ever. most songs on album are under-rated eg. Nightrain, Outta Get Me. I also like the fact Axl doesn't feel the need to swear in every line of the song
