2001 EU reissue on 180g Vinyl  -From "Paradise City" to "Sweet Child O' Mine" and "Welcome To The Jungle," One of the most prolific debut albums of all time, and a record that changed the face of music, 1987's  Guns N' Roses' Appetite For Destruction is a revelatory portrait of the gritty underground of Los Angeles from one of the most notorious bands in history and still sounds as raw and dangerous as ever. The blistering guitar interplay of Slash and Izzy Stradlin provides the ultimate backdrop for Axl Rose's signature rasp. From "Paradise City" to "Sweet Child O' Mine" and "Welcome To The Jungle," the record brims with a brutal integrity that without question will always stand as the predominate document of the band's ever-growing legend.

Guns N Roses debut Appetite for Destruction was a turning point for hard rock in the late 80s it was a dirty dangerous and mean record in a time when heavy metal meant nothing but a good time On the surface Guns N Roses may appear to celebrate the same things as their peers namely sex liquor drugs and rock & roll but there is a nasty edge to their songs since Axl Rose doesnt see much fun in the urban sprawl of LA and its parade of heavy metal thugs cheap women booze and crime The music is as nasty as the lyrics wallowing in a bluesy metallic hard rock borrowed from Aerosmith AC/DC and countless faceless hard rock bands of the early 80s Its a primal sleazy sound that adds grit to already grim tales It also makes Roses misogyny fear and anger hard to dismiss as merely an artistic statement this is music that sounds livedin And thats exactly why Appetite for Destruction is such a powerful record not only does Rose have fears but he also is vulnerable particularly on the power ballad Sweet Child O Mine He also has a talent for conveying the fears and horrors of the decaying inner city whether its on the charging Welcome to the Jungle the heroin ode Mr Brownstone or Paradise City which simply wants out But as good as Roses lyrics and screeching vocals are they wouldnt be nearly as effective without the twinguitar interplay of Slash and Izzy Stradlin who spit out riffs and solos better than any band since the Rolling Stones and thats what makes Appetite for Destruction the best metal record of the late 80s Stephen Thomas Erlewine AMG
