Review of "Appetite For Destruction [PA] - Guns N' Roses"
Well, well, well, sex does indeed sell, and Appetite for Destruction, what with the pornographic sounds on Rocket Queen, can be proof of that - over 16 million records sold! (Though this may not have been the case had they chosen to stick with the controversial painting of the same name for the cover art.) Tongue-in-cheek aside, I must admit, although I'd never be a fan of Guns N' Roses - Appetite for Destruction is a really good rock record.Music musings:
1. Welcome to the Jungle; 6. Paradise City; 9. Sweet Child O' Mine
Appetite for Destruction opens to a swarm of guitars that is Welcome to the Jungle, which is sure to whet the appetite for hard rock! The three tracks are good choice of singles, though not my favourites off this album.
3. Nightrain; 8. Think About You
These are my favourite tracks off this album - both happen to begin with a count-in from a cowbell. Nightrain, released as a single, showcases some great guitar solos from Slash. Izzy Stradlin shows some decent leads on Think About You, which he wrote. This song also has a cool clean guitar riff in the choruses. However, it's the singing that is supreme in these songs, and I love how they come to a climax (oh yes I do).
High or low singing - Axl Rose makes it look so easy.
7. My Michelle
The opening clean guitar arpeggios effectively establish a dark mood to the song. (A remix of this track is used as Neon Tiger's theme in MegaMan X3!)
Including a talkbox! Of which it can sound similar to a Juice Harp and even a harmonica in this song.
12. Rocket Queen
Another favourite. A rocking riff, sex sounds, and some great singing in what is, a magnificent second half to the song, means that Rocket Queen comes to multiple climaxes.
