Product Description

Product Description

This 1987 smash didn't just soar to #1 on the strengths of Axl's wail and the 12 strings of Slash and Izzy Stradlin-it produced a fistful of ferocious rock anthems that have been clogging jukeboxes and airwaves ever since. The greatest hard-rock record of its time features "Sweet Child O' Mine; Welcome to the Jungle; Paradise City; Nightrain; My Michelle; Mr. Brownstone", and more!


A glimpse of the future, and not because of its huge influence and umpteen million sales. The poor-little-rich-boy protest "Out ta Get Me" intimates that Axl Rose's egotism and martyr complex were soon to grow bigger than his head; still, Appetite's night-train wreck of punk and metal sounds and sensibilities make it more than just an emblem of its time. Whether GN'R are dancing with Mr. Brownstone, penning a callow kiss-off letter to some chick named Michelle, or passing out on somebody else's sofa, this was and remains a savage journey to the heart of the American--or at least the Hollywood--dream. --Rickey Wright

Before dangerous amounts of hairspray led to the fall of hard rock/heavy metal, five men on a diet of heroin and alcohol put together a mindblowing album. Appetite For Destruction is 54 minutes of gritty, unabashed and powerful music. Axl Rose's raspy voice is surrounded by incredible guitar and drum works. The music, written mainly by Izzy Stadlin and Axl Rose, is simply an in-your-face sound that hasn't been duplicted since. Subject matter deals heavily with a life of poverty and drug abuse; things the band had an extensive knowledge of. "Welcome to the Jungle" is the only song that could introduce what lies on this album. "Mr. Brownstone" conveys the depths that one falls into with a herion addiction. "My Michelle" is actually a terribly sad song about foresaking drugs for lack of love (like I said, they stick with a a subject they know). No bad songs exist on this disc. The only downside is that by the time a follow-up came out, the band had already begun to self-destruct and lost the energy they had in the beginning. This is one of those rare albums that, whether or not you agree with what it says, changed the course of music.

One afternoon in 1986, I was relaxing in my bedroom after a long day at school when a song came on the radio that changed my life forever. Between the glorious screeching of the lead singer and the unforgettable guitar riffs, it sounded like nothing I'd ever heard. When the song was over, I listened intently until the DJ said, "That was 'Welcome to the Jungle' by a band out of L.A. called Guns n Roses and they've just released an album titled Appetite for Destruction." I immediately called up my friend, Chris, and told him I'd just heard the most incredible song and filled him in on the details.
Chris could always be counted on to do the right thing so I wasn't particularly surprised when he showed up at my parents' house that night in his beloved beige Ford Escort with a brand new cassette in its tape deck. We picked up our Smiths-loving feminist friend, Cynthia, and headed down to Hampton. As 'It's So Easy' blasted out of the Escort's cheap speakers, Cynthia's face turned crimson and she became enraged, "What is this crap?" she yelled.
"It's our new tape by Guns n Roses," Chris said in his most soothing voice, "Just relax and enjoy it."
"Turn around btch, I've got a use for you!," ordered Axl.
That was all Cynthia could take. "Turn that misogynistic sht off," Cynthia screamed.
Chris and I couldn't help but laugh. Cynthia was a good friend, but not that good. I mean we had just discovered perhaps the greatest album of all time and Cynthia wanted us to cut it off due to a few of Axl's more colorful turns of phrase. She'd have to endure it. And endure it she did - until "Rocket Queen" ended and we started it all over again. Probably not a night Cynthia recalls fondly, but Chris and I sure enjoyed it.
Then over time, a funny thing happened.

Pressed on 180 gram vinyl from the original master recordings, Appetite For Destruction still has it. I didn't buy this from Amazon, I would have but I came across it at HMV for $20. I've never heard this album sound so good before. This is the first time I've listened to it on vinyl, but comparing it to the CD version, well, there is no comparison. While listening to this LP, I've heard things that I didn't know were there before. The lack of compression and the much more vibrant dynamic range truly filled my ears with so much more than a CD ever could. Obviously the tracks that made GNR who they are sound amazing, but tracks like 'Nightrain', 'Mr. Brownstone' and 'My Michelle' had so much more depth. I don't even have a high quality set up. I have an entry level Audio-Technica AT-LP60 (which I have also reviewed) playing through my Sony Home Theater (one of those theater-in-a-box kits). I bet this would sound even better playing through high end equipment.

I will say this though, when I first opened it, I took out the LP to see a lot of fingerprints and dirt on both sides of the disc. I was disappointed with that because of how much effort was put into the overall presentation. So I highly recommend giving this LP a thorough cleaning before listening to it. There are plenty of vinyl cleaning tutorials on YouTube, so take advantage of them to make this record sound it's absolute best, and to help preserve it for years to come.

All in all, I definitely recommend this. Everything is designed to look like the original release, the sleeve, the labels on the LP, everything. I had a chuckle that the sides were labeled 'G' and 'R'. Beautiful presentation, beautiful sound, a winner all around.

Is there something different with this edition, being that it's the "Original Master Recording"? I of course own the regular CD release already; was remastering done or something? Or was it the opposite (i.e. is this a more spare, less studio-tooled version?)


P.S. There is a release of Megadeth's 'Countdown To Extinction' which bears the same "Original Master Recording" moniker - hence my reason for asking, since this looks the same.
