Appetite for Destruction

Performers Guns N' Roses

Geffen | February 17, 1997 | Compact Disc

Appetite for Destruction is rated 5 out of 5 by 2.
Guns N' Roses: W. Axl Rose (vocals, synthesizer, percussion); Slash (acoustic & electric guitars); Izzy Stradlin' (guitar, background vocals, percussion); Duff "Rose" McKagan (bass, background vocals); Steven Adler (drums). Recorded at Rumbo Studios, Canoga Park, California; Take One Studio, Burbank, California; Can Am Studio, Tarzana, California. Already a legend in its own meagre lifetime, this startling debut shrouded itself in controversy, from its original Robert Williams artwork to Axl Rose's unblinking accounts of LA's underbelly. This mawkish storytelling, combined with a brattish collective swagger and a surprisingly mature approach to their songs, guaranteed Guns N'Roses a speedy notoriety that was to serve their legend brilliantly. From the laconic "Paradise City" to the achingly beautiful "Sweet Child O' Mine," or the furious "Welcome To The Jungle," the record brims with a brutal integrity. An album they could never surpass even if they had stayed together.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Album That Changed The World When you listen to this album you will be surprised at everythign you are hearing but when you listen to the world you will realize that they are just singing about what is happening in thier lives. For example: "Welcome to the Jungle" was written about how Izzy Stradlin (Jeff Isbell) and Axl Rose (Bill Bailey) end up in an all black neighbourhood. Someone starts asking them if they know where they are and the man screeches "You in da middle of da jungle baby! You gonna die!" Or how "My Michelle" is about an underage girl who claims she was raped by Axl and Slash when she had agreed to it. Eventually charges were dropped but this is all real. This band changed the way I think about music, they have so much passion for music. This album changed thw world of Rock and Roll. Will it change you?
