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

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.Read more ›
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.
INQUIRING MINDS WANT TO KNOW.
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.

Only gave it 3 stars because it had a couple of skips and drags. I played it once before I cleaned it. Read morePublished 9 days ago by Lee
The album arrived on the expected date and was well packaged. There was absolutely no damage upon arrival. I was worried about buying a vinyl lp on-line and it arriving intact. Read morePublished 27 days ago by Rob Zylstra
