iTunes Review

Appetite for Destruction arrived near the height of the Sunset Strip hair-metal craze. But while Mike Clink's production gave Guns 'N Roses' debut an undeniably commercial sheen, this was a band willing to cop to more vices than just smokin' in the boys' room. Taking their lessons from the Stones and Aerosmith, they produced a howling tumult in praise of their vices ("Mr. Brownstone," "Nightrain") and ready to push the world back a step or two ("Welcome to the Jungle"). None of these guys was carrying a very cool head, least of all frontman Axl Rose. The breadth of his band's gift was heard in "Sweet Child o' Mine," an arching rainbow of a love song (to a woman, Erin Everly, Rose would prove unable to keep). For a few years the most popular rock band in the world, GNR's mega-stardom rested mostly on this album.

Customer Reviews

Simply Incredible

I'm new to liking Guns N' Roses. After hearing Welcome to the Jungle and Paradise City, I liked what I was hearing, so I decided to buy one of their albums. Buying Appetite for Destruction is one of the smartest things I've ever done. THIS IS THE BEST CD EVER RECORDED BY ANYONE EVER. I could listen to every single song on this cd about a billion times and love it even more every time. BUY IT NOW

Best Album Ever

Guns N' Roses' debut record is the best album of all time. Slash's "face- melting" solos are some of the best I've ever heard. Axl's high- pitched screeches of raunchy and violent tales are brilliant as well. Duff, Izzy, and Steven make up a rythm section that holds the music together. Appetite For Destruction is the best album ever recorded. It's a shame these guys can't get get back together.

This Album Rocks from Start to finish!

Guns N' Roses' best album, their debut was a fantastic representation of all that is good about hard rock'n'roll. The megahits were "Welcome to the Jungle", "Paradise City", and "Sweet Child O' Mine". However, it's one of those albums good enough that you don't have to skip tracks to get to the good ones. The album "fillers" are all of the highest quality trashy-rock that will have you air-guitaring in no time flat.

Biography

Formed: 1985 in Los Angeles, CA

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

At a time when pop was dominated by dance music and pop-metal, Guns N' Roses brought raw, ugly rock & roll crashing back into the charts. They were not nice boys; nice boys don't play rock & roll. They were ugly, misogynistic, and violent; they were also funny, vulnerable, and occasionally sensitive, as their breakthrough hit, "Sweet Child O' Mine," showed. While Slash and Izzy Stradlin ferociously spit out dueling guitar riffs worthy of Aerosmith or the Stones, Axl Rose screeched out his...
