Sound — 9
More of a punk album than anything else. It has a large variety of sloppy guitar riffs. This sounds nothing like use your illusion or Appetite. Most of the songs start with a hit hat and then go into a fast guitar riff that leads to a verse. Axl also screams more in this album. Duff Mackagan (might have spelled wrong) the bassist plays on a track called Attitude. It is a song that was composed by the misfits and then covered by Guns.
Lyrics — 8
The lyrics are more swearing and screaming than any other guns album. To be serious songs like Buick Makaine, and I don't care about you have little or no meaning. I don't care about you is a song where Axl says some shit and then the chorus goes "I don't care about you." It doesn't even rhyme. The lyrics though fit this harder style of music they're playing.
Overall Impression — 6
It is better than the concert footage I've seen of Guns N' Roses upcoming Chinese Democracy song/album. It though is the worst of the old guns. It is more of a punk album. If you like punk good, but I like how they play in Appetite and Use your Illusion. It sounds better. If I lost it I wouldn't by it again. It just isn't that good overall. It has a few good songs like Attitude, Buick Makaine (ok), New Rose, and Ain't It Fun which is probably the best of all
