My Original Review

Quote
Funny thing. I wasn't a fan of GNR when the video for Welcome To The Jungle first dropped on the airwaves of MTV. I was still in the throes of the glam era of metal and this was just to hardc*re for me. Haha. I'm kidding. These guys hit me like a ton of bricks to the face, that's still being felt to this day. This is the greatest debut of any artist in the history of music. You will not find a better debut with such a lasting impact than Appetite For Destruction IMO.

Every damn song has a purpose here. There isn't a wasted 3 minutes to be found. There's really nothing I can say that hasn't already been said about this album, other than a personal story about it. Back in the day, one of my friends "hardest/heaviest" groups he would listen too was.....Huey Lewis And The News. I s hit you not. He considered them to be a hard rock band to the fullest. Enter moi. I turned him on to Appetite. He converted. Suddenly he was obsessed with GNR and then moved onto Metallica and others. My job was complete. Hahahaha.

Personal Fave songs: Welcome To The Jungle, Mr Brownstone, Paradise City and that uber power ballad Sweet Child O'Mine.

I've been playing this album non stop since the day it came out. Can't believe its been that long.

My Latest Review

Appetite For Destruction. Has there ever been a more cataclysmic debut by anyone else in the history of the record industry? I think not. Personally I think Appetite For Destruction is the single greatest debut ever for any band. It's very rare you find an album that is both commercially and critically acclaimed. The album is the best-selling debut album of all-time worldwide, totaling 28+ million units sold. :jawdrop:

There are so many great tunes on AFD that to me it's a Greatest Hits set. From Jungle to It's So Easy to Mr. Brownstone to Paradise City to one of the greatest ballads of all time, Sweet Child O' Mine. I put this right up there with Motley Crue's Home Sweet Home. Man, I remember first time learning the opening lick to Child and thinking I was the coolest motherf ucker on the planet.

Fave Songs: All of 'em Co-MVP goes to Welcome To The Jungle, Paradise City and Sweet Child O'Mine

The album cover, no matter which one you go with is heads and shoulders above most covers out there. I definitely rank it in the top 10 of all time. Inner Sleeve Side A (The one on the left) was the original cover, but due to it's graphic depiction of robot ****, the record company settled for the eventual replacement. And even the replacement is nothing to sneeze at. Top 10 baby!!
