Guns N Roses are a classic rock band from California, and made up of initially 2 bands, LA Guns And Hollywood Roses, meaning this is largely a rock band with - in my opinion - taking inspiration from glam rockers Bon Jovi and as result, fails to be very innovative, but still sound great, I never enjoyed them that much to begin with but the guitars are great and Axl and Slash are a terrific, duo, but sadly you will hardly ever notice the rest of the people contributed to the band but still good nonetheless.

Axl Rose, has - in my opinion - an average voice, with not much diversity, or innovation to it, however it still provides a good combination to the high guitars, and such, but his really high vocals have long impressed me and I believe to keep singing like that - in tune - is an impressive feat for anyone to accomplish.
Overall Impression — 9
It's without a doubt there best album, and having my favourite tracks "Sweet Child O Mine", "Paradise City" and "Civil War", its no slouch either, but its an acquired taste that will leave a crowd divided, but ignore it niggles and you have possibly the greatest album ever made, and its a lot better than others I can name, every song is great, so go and buy it or live to regret it.
