This is a thread onto where I'll be doing music reviews, whether it'll be of full albums like Master of Puppets, As Daylight Dies, or Nevermind, or even songs such as Fight the Power, Glass Shatters, a bitch is a bitch or Slither. Any song or album you want me to review just post on here. Now to get started with my first review, it's going to be an album, a famous album by the name of Appetite for Destruction. You guys can ask for reviews on this thread and I'll post them here. An album will take a day or two, and a song will take a few hours to review. My reasons for doing reviews; 1. I enjoy listening to new music and is interested on what you guys have to offer, 2. I am taking music class, so looking up music that made milestones in history(musical or not) will help, and 3. I wanna learn as much as I can about music. Now to start; Band name: Guns N' Roses(GnR) Album: Appetite For Destruction Genre: Rock/Hard Rock, Heavy Metal Year: 1987 Label: Geffem Records Lineup: Axl Rose(All lead vocals, backing vocals, percussion), Slash(lead, rhythm, and acoustic guitar), Izzy Strandlin(Rhythm, and lead guitar, backing vocals, and percussion), Duff McKagan(Bass guitar, backingvocals), and Steven Adler(drums) Songs in album: 12 Rating I give: 10/10 Reason: Every song on here, from Welcome to the Jungle to Rocket Queen is full of pure rock. You have everything from this album, from real life experiences, from songs like Mr. Brownstone, and Out ta get me, to stuff they love like Nightrain, and even love songs like Think about you and Sweet Child O' Mine. It is one of the best albums ever and is worth listening to from start to finish. With this album you can feel like a badass listening to It's so easy, then wanting to chill and have a good time listen to Paradise City, f you feel like rocking out go to You're Crazy, you want a song that's badass yet sweet? Go to Rocket Queen, want a straight up song with straight up meaning, turn up Anything Goes, want a story? Go to My Michelle. Every song on here I say everyone should give a chance to. Now to review each song by itself: Spoiler (Move your mouse to the spoiler area to reveal the content) Show Spoiler Hide Spoiler 1. Welcome to the Jungle-One of the most popular rock songs ever. It has a amazing intro, you know when you hear the echoing guitar and police sirens shit is about to go down. It has great vocals(yes it's about drugs), and the instrumental is great. The guitars have that nice hard rock sound, with combination of Slash using the echo pedal in a good way. The drums are good, not really anything exceptional, but it goes great with the song, and the bass is badass on this song. And that scream Axl does is perfect in the song. 2. It's So Eazy- Nice intro in combination of the bass and guitar, Izzy and Axl did a good job with combination of the vocals. The guitars went with the flow of the song great giving it an amazing sound. The drumming in this song was a lot better then in Welcome to the Jungle, it was very good and loud. The bass was more heard on this song, and it got the intro so that was pretty good. The vocals were complete badass, awesome, and could give you a chuckle. "You get nothing for nothing if that's what you do, turn around bitch I got a use for you, BESIDES you don't got anything better to do and I'm bored!"-part of the song. 3. Nightrain- This one had a great intro with the drums being first, then the guitar taking it from there. If you love hard rock guitars, then this song is one you'll want to listen to. The song is about an alcoholic drink named Nightrain the band use to drink(since it was very very cheap but good tasting). The vocals are pretty good in this song, they are at their best during the prechours though. The guitar solo in this song is great and it's a long one, and the outro is instrumental. The drumming on this song is great too, and the bass can barely be heard since both lead and ryhthm guitars are loud as fuck. 4. Out ta get me-This song is mainly on the vocals. The vocals are very good and loud, while maintaining the album's trademark of badassness. The intro is a combination of drums and guitar. The vocals are nice having some back vocals used a lot on this song too. The drums are decent, like Welcome to the Jungle outside the intro they don't really stand out. The guitars are great, they go with the flow if the song, and the solo is nice. 5. Mr. Brownstone- The intro is first starting off with drumming and bass before the guitars slide in and the vocals come out. The vocals are great and simple. The guitars are't as loud as the other songs, but they are still very good, The backing vocals are nice to, not used to much. The solo is pretty good, not as good as the other songs, but still a good thing to give a chance to. The song is based off of Slash and Duff's addictions of brown heroine. 6. Paradise City- Another one of GnR's famous songs, Paradise city has a nice melodic intro before hitting starting to hit giving it their rock sound. The outro is a straight out rocking out ending, with all instruments loud as fuck. The vocals are nice, they aren't loud and go with the flow if the instruments, and the chorus's backing vocals are very good too. The guitars are nice on this song, going from melody to rock, to melody, to rock once more. The bass is good keeping a nice grove with the song. The drums are decent except for the intro and outro where they sound badass. 7. My Michelle-Now if you're wondering why I said this was a story earlier, it's because this song is based of a real person named Michelle Young who was Slash's girlfriend. This song is completely true about her life, Axl even showed her the song and everything. This song has a much darker song then the rest, The guitars are more darker in this song, but still soung great. The vocals are loud and give it that nice hard rock voice. The drums are decent. The bass is pretty nice here. 8. Think about You- Think song is beautiful. It's a love song but formed with hard rock instrumental background. There's guitars throughout the whole song that's loud and nice. The drums are pretty good, better then decent here. The bass sounds good, has a nice groove. The vocals are nice and sweet, something kinda better then what you would expect from hearing the hard rock instruments. 9. Sweet Child O' Mine- Best song of the album hands down,The song starts off with a nice sweet guitar solo, then the drums and second guitar hit and we go into the nice vocals. This song is more melodic then the others, and the guitars go with the song perfectly. The drums are nice especially during the back vocalling part near the end. The bass once again goes great with this song. If you have someone you love and want to dedicate a song to them, this song is perfect! 10.You're Crazy-It's a nice song song to rock out to. It's very loud and badass. The vocals on this song have badass lyrics but sometimes hard to hear because the instruments are loud as fuck. The guitars have a nice loud hard rock sound to them and have a badass solo. The drumming is great on here to keep up with the high tempo of this song, and the bass is great to be able to keep up and sound good! 11. Anything Goes- This song is straight up about one thing: Having sex with a virgin. It's so clear, the song is saying Axl wants to have sex with a horny virgin anyway she wants it, up against the wall, on the floor, tied down or even tied up.(cough BONDAGE cough). The guitars are nice and loud, during the solo the guitar goes from left to right of the speaker a couple of times which gives me a good chuckle. The drums are nice on here as so with the bass. The vocals are great and of course have the badass sense to them. 12. Rocket Queen- This song is amazing. Starting out as a loud hard rock song that's badass, and ending as a melody that's sweet, this song is unique. The drums are badass here taking part of the intro and being loud here. The guitars are awesome and go with the flow perfectly and having a great solo. The bass is nice sounding being able to go with the flow nicely. The vocals are amazing with badass, crazy, and sweet meaning, as also having sexual moaning during the guitar solo. This was my first album review ever, so if you guys didn't like it please tell me my mistakes.
