Review of "Appetite For Destruction [PA] - Guns N' Roses"
In 1986, rock was losing most of its edge. Hair metal was at its high point, and most bands were changing their style to become more radio (and chick) friendly. We had bands like Def Leppard, Bon Jovi, Poison and Warrant ruling the airwaves. Thats when Guns N' Roses come in.Appetite for Destruction is a full out hard rock album, its a very sleazy album, but that what makes it so great. The members of the band that performed on this album are: Axl Rose, Slash, Duff, Izzy and Steven Adler. Their debut album has a much more unified sound that most of their later albums, due to the fact that the band was going through a lot of changed, and it could be easily seen that they werent stable at all.
Now for the song by song review:1)Welcome To The Jungle: A great hard rock song, that was released as the first single, although it had to be re-released. The lyrics are good, if nothing special. And the song does not really have a chorus, but it doesnt take away anything from it.
2)Its So Easy: A sleazy rock/punk song. Again nothing special lyric wise, but the song is to fun not too like. Also great guitar work by Slash here.
Axl sings in a deeper voice here, then reverts to his original voice right at the end for added effect.
4)Out Ta Get me: One of the weaker tracks. Its an aggressive song about Axl's run in with the law in his youth. Against strong aggresive lyrics, and good instrumental work, but the song doesnt really leave much of an effect on the listener.
6)Paradise City: Business really picks up here! Great lyrics, Huge Chorus and great solo too. This song is just crazy! The last two minutes are just amazing in my opinion.
8)Think About You: A sweet song here, with quite touching, if not cheesy, lyrics. Unfortunately this is not a song that will make most people hit the rewind button.
10)You're Crazy: The fastest song on the album, but not really memorable. The acoustic version is better.
12)Rocket Queen: Great way to end the album, with again sweet lyrics from Axl at the end. Good solo, great lyrics and chorus and even some sex sounds to spice things up a bit.
