Geffen Records – GHS 24148 (2015) US
One of the most prolific debut albums of all time, and a record that changed the face of music, Guns N' Roses' Appetite for Destruction is a revelatory portrait of the gritty underground of Los Angeles from one of the most notorious bands in history and still sounds as raw and dangerous as ever. The blistering guitar interplay of Slash and Izzy Stradlin provides the ultimate backdrop for Axl Rose's signature rasp. From "Paradise City" to "Sweet Child O' Mine" and "Welcome to the Jungle," the record brims with a brutal integrity that without question will always stand as the predominate document of the band's ever-growing legend. Reissued here on 180g vinyl LP for the first time in two decades.
