That’s right Guns-N-Roses Appetite For Destruction. This album has so many fond memories for me like the time my troop and I managed to get this dumped car working. We took it for a spin and had this album blaring from the the car stereo. So where do I start.
‘Welcome to the Jungle’ this song has an absolutely awesome intro, with it’s awesome guitar licks (yes, Redi you bitch I know you are the guitar hero champion at this song, but soon bitch soon!) and the lyrics so full of anger that it’s inspiring. The next song ‘It’s so easy’ easily has one of the most memorable lines “it’s so easy, so fucking easy, when every one’s trying to please me” (yes, something my lady-friends should take note of). Then it’s ‘Nightrain’ another fucking awesome song that just smacks of rock ‘n roll gods.
We then move onto ‘Out ta get me’ which has become an anthem for my life, ever since I moved to the city,those filthy animal welfare pricks are always trying ‘ta get me’. They don’t like animals to live with humans, which to me just smacks of racism I mean, just because I have a full head (& body) of hair which I get my lady-friends to groom (after sex in case your wondering and yes I am usually asleep - hey, I am a man). Anyway moving on we have ‘Mr Brownstone’ which has that great drum beat, dirty guitars which create this wall of sound and lyrics which get inside your head and rip your fucking brains out! Then we get to ‘Paradise City’ this song starts out really slow and builds and builds till at the end the guitars are blistering fast you’d think it was speed metal. I do love the chorus “take me down to a paradise city, were the grass is green and the girls are pretty” yep please take me there, I can imagine myself rolling around in the green grass with lots of pretty girls.
Then we have ‘My Michelle’ a lament to a girl gone wayward, I always wondered where I could meet someone like this, she sounds like my kind of girl. The next song ‘Sweet Child o’ Mine’ is a always will be my favourite Guns-N-Roses song, I still remember seeing them in concert and when they played this song it brought the house down ( I also remember getting headbutted by some low-life Baboon bitch!).
‘You’re crazy’ is another song that could so easily describe Redi “you’re crazy, so fucking crazy”. Yes he is absolutely bat-shit in the brains (take that slut!). ‘Anything goes’ is another awesome song and it finishes with ‘Rocket Queen’ yet another awesome rock song.
All up this album is a MUST for your collection, never will you hear such a truly raw and honest album such as this. With Axl Rose singing with such anger and passion, Slash who is a guitar god with his blistering solo’s and fucking genius riffs that feature in every song on this album work, Duff Rose on bass, Izzy Stradlin’ on rhythm guitar and Steven Adler supplying the drum foundations that pull all the songs together and make this the best hard rock album ever. None of that big hair or uni band shit, these guys were the real deal, drinking it, smoking it and most of all living it. So do yourself a favour and listen to it or if you don’t have it GET IT.
So far I have drunk six shots out of five listening to this album and I am still counting! Just pure fucking musical genius! GUNS AND FUCKING ROSES!
Till next week peace out my bitches!
