CRITIC REVIEWS

AllMusic

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.

Shrieking incubus Axl Rose and Co. blew up blow-dried LA hair metal with the meanest slinkiest blues since The Rolling Stones didn´t suck.

With perhaps three songs on here that come close to justifying its phenomenal sales record and critical acclaim, all too many of the remaining nine songs are the kind of song that could easily appear on the 6th or 7th album from a hard rock band that’s long passed over the hill.

this album holds some of the best and most played rock songs of all time, yet it still fails to work as a cohesive and well rounded piece. i understand the praise though. this record is fun and rebellious, but just cant live up to the 3-4 songs that made guns n roses the legendary band they are today.

fav tracks: sweet child o' mine, welcome to the jungle

Some few fun and over-played rock tracks, but as a whole album isn't memorable or consistent enough.
