It's hard enough rating albums based on the music content without having to consider the views/personality defects of the artists that produce them. Many (most?) artists have 'unconventional' views, I just concentrate on the music, a great album from the homophobic Led Zep clones. I hardly think that Guns N Roses is a response to synth pop, like some kind of protest movement?

Literally one female solo artist in the top 100 of this website, meanwhile these homophobic Led Zep-clones are up here. ‘80s ‘classic’ rock is the most obnoxious and childish response to synth pop, which was clearly the more interesting genre of the ‘80s. It marked the moment that people forgot that rock ‘n’ roll was invented by black people and Mick Jagger wore a dress in 1969. It is clear that rapper Young Thug has more understanding of rock ‘n’ roll than any of these little, insecure boys.
Fuck them and fuck everyone who wears their cringy t-shirts.

How’s that for controversial?

This (along with Back in Black) is one of the few albums in the BEA top hundred that does not appear in the top thousand by rating. (Unlike 'Back in Black' the rating here is too low). Most other albums have not too dissimilar chart and rating positions. Paradise City and Sweet Child make this album worthwhile...where the girls are green and the grass is pretty..... Rocket Queen isn't bad either. I think rock and roll is inherently 'cheesy' and I have no problem with that, I love it. Enjoying rock music is not about great lyrics and innovation, other music styles cover this, there's plenty of room for all types of music even ridiculously repetitive dance music has it's place, (usually elsewhere). Appetite for Destruction is one of the best.

Cheesy, laughable testosterone rock. Repetitive and monotonous at best, grating and irritating at worse. They took a sound that was already exhausting by 87 and took it to a new level. A new level of obnoxious. If you found Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith, AC/DC, The Stones, and Iron Maiden annoying, this will certainly make your ears bleed as it's almost entirely devoid of the merits of the aforementioned predecessors with twice the cringe factor.

"oh but there are a lot of distorted guitar solos where the guy plays notes really fast"

ok. just stop. That's not what makes music good. Especially when it's a practically identical guitar solo, song structure, vocal technique, melody, and composition style for literally every song.

I'm sure I'll get enormously down-voted for this, as I'm an ignorant millennial who lacks respect for classic rock, and if this is your style of music I hope this brings you joy because it's a big world and enough art to satisfy all the different types. Honestly if it brings you joy that's great. For me though, this is the epitome of overrated obnoxious fodder best suited for drunk bald sports bar regulars in Harley jackets playing pool poorly with an underdeveloped sense of what makes for good art.

The album which showed the great promise and what everyone believed was going to be the Led Zeppelin / Rolling Stones / Aerosmith band from 1987-2017. But it wasn't to be. The band was already fraying two years later. The weakest song here is perhaps 'Anything Goes', and theres a uniformity of tone and style which goes beyond the Jungle / Paradise City / Brownstone / Sweet Child foursome. And Rocket Queen is a better epic than November Rain.

Too aggressive. Also the blues stuff doesn't work in this context. Only listened through once. Extra 5 points for Sweet Child of Mine, which has a really good intro, but peters off. Recommend just getting that single if you're not into this sort of music like me.

Strano destino quello dei Guns n'roses, divenuti delle star al momento del loro esordio ed avviati verso il viale del tramonto un secondo dopo. "Appetite for destruction" infatti contiene le loro cose migliori ma anche i segni della fine che verrà dopo alcuni anni passati a mietere successi ma artisticamente a vivacchiare.

Excellent rock n' roll album. You can hear a touch of everything late-80s on this LP. Combines bluesey hard rock with elements of punk, heavy metal and glam metal. For a debut album, this ranks up there with the debuts of Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath and Van Halen. The three main singles on this album are rock classics, but there are album tracks on this LP that I feel are very underrated. One of the best albums of the 80s and one of the best of all time.

Highlights: "Welcome to the Jungle", "Sweet Child 'o Mine", "Paradise City", "Rocket Queen", "It's So Easy", "Anything Goes", "Mr Brownstone", "My Michelle"

Questionable Tracks: "You're Crazy", "Think About You"
