Album 365: Day 77 - Guns N' Roses - Appetite For Desctruction

Guns N' Roses
Appetite For Destruction

Favorite tracks: Mr. Brownstone, You're Crazy, Rocket Queen
Sleeper tracks: Nightrain, Anything Goes

It's amazing how an album has the power to change the future of music.

I can't say for sure if I got this album when it came out.  I doubt I did since I was 11.  However, I remember having a copy before my 13th birthday.  It was a really heavy and seedy album to have as a kid.

Listening to it now, I can appreciate how much of an influence it was to music and pop culture.  I can also say that the music was a little juvenile or maybe it just seems like that compared to today's music.  I really liked the guitar pairing of Stradlin and Slash.  With headphones on, you can hear the cool styling of each player.  Duff's bass playing in "Rocket Queen" is pretty slick and for rock bass players, he was solid.  Axl's vocals are great and of course, there's enough cowbell to satiate.
