Guns N' Roses, "Appetite For Destruction" / 1987 Review by: Lucy
With GNR's 1987 release of Appetite For Destruction, the world of rock n' roll was changed forever. At a time when hair bands ruled the charts, Guns N' Roses came in and dominated with their sleazy, dirty, honest tales of life in L.A. Their music was hard, heavy and extremely appealing. With Axl's vocals, the competing guitar riffs from lead guitarist Slash and Izzy Stradlin, the bass from Duff McKagan and Steven Adler on the drums, GNR was a band that could not be stopped. Their music, especially that from 'Appetite' continues to be one of the most popular 80's albums of all time. Chart topper's include "Welcome To The Jungle", "Paradise City" and "Sweet Child O' Mine". Other good songs on the album are "My Michelle", "Rocket Queen", "Mr. Brownstone" and "Nightrain", although you can listen to this album from beginning to end easily. This is truly an awesome album and if you don't already own it I suggest you go and buy it because your image of GNR as well as their music and 80's hard rock in general will be changed forever.
