I still love this album. I first heard it while listening to Maiden and Def Leppard etc. Slash was a revlation and Axel's vocal range was incredible. The ultimate 80's album.

To this day, Axl Rose p---es me off. It's not just the spoiled brat tantrums, and it's not his prima donna attitude. It's not even the fact that he stole his tradmark sway/glide thing from the lead singer of Shark Island. No, it is much more personal than that...he did, vocally, what I had been dreaming of doing for years, and he did it in such a way that the sound would be forever identified with him. So, back to the drawing board for me.

On the plus side, these guys came along just in time and proved that rock and roll was still very much alive. Slash reminded us where rock came from in the first place with his other-worldly, yet firmly blues-based soloing. Great songwriting - not many bands have this many classics in their entire catalog, much less on a single album. Their best ever.

1980's Rock & Roll - "What are your rebelling aginst"

Guns & Roses - "Whad'ya Got"

80's R&R - "A bunch of bands that became successful and then turned into self parodies"

G&R - "Alright"

Adage - "Those who do not learn from the past, are doomed to repeat it"

G&R repeats it

Not a bad record though.

That's right. Forget all that poison crap or Whitesnake, get to Guns N' Roses already. This album is definetly eighties rock, but you have this sense-or the fact that they don't wear makeup-that they're a lot more serious than the others. Welcome to the Jungle, a song that even today people can't forget, is the first track off the entire album, and sets the mood for it the entire way through.

1. Welcome To The Jungle 2. It's So Easy 3. Night train 4. Out Ta Get Me 5. Mr. Brownstone 6. Paradise City 7. My Michelle 8. Think About You 9. Sweet Child O' Mine 10. You're Crazy 11. Anything Goes 12. Rocket Queen

This CD is entirely Eighties, which isn't anywhere in music now. But for it's time, it was a really good CD. It has ballads, the hard rock songs, everything. This CD had it all.
