Album of the month

edited May 2007 in Social Entropy++
Ok, so I didn't have time to get an April album of the month thread out, but I'm back and with a vengeance on this one.
I had been busting out some of my more rockin stuff lately and this was a tough one to decide on. Ultimately, it came down to fun party album time.

GnR - Appetite for Destruction
GFLD19286.jpg

Once again, wikipedia has some background info on the album and all that jazz if you are so inclined
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Appetite_for_Destruction

What we have here is a complete party album. People that grew up around the time the album was released and it was being played on the radio, MTV, KNAC 105.5 for all the Los Angeles rockers, remember this as the rockin out album, for a lot of us in junior high, maybe for druhim when he turned 21. Anyway, I hear people occasionally dog GnR, but god damn if you aren't a fuckin liar that when Welcome to the Jungle or Paradise City starts playing your rocking out in your head if not on the outside.

I got a thing for Mr. Brownstone myself and come on, My Michelle is awesome. GnR isn't Warrant or Poison here folks. They're Guns n' FUCKIN Roses. Now, fuck Axle and his steroid driven, plastic surgery liposucked bastardization of the current GnR lineup, but we are talking the days of Slash opening up Sweet Child o' Mine with some rippin guitar.

GnR was one of those party bands that I liked, but wasn't in to, like I was in to Depeche Mode or The Cure at around the time this album came out, but just over the past couple of years, I've picked up the Master Discs for some GnR and I find myself popping in this album and thinking, hot damn, this is still kickin ass.

So, why don't you, for a second, put away your emo fag shit and pop in some kick ass GnR.

Again, these album of the month threads are just my recommendations for albums that I think deserve a spot in your library. As if you already didn't have it.

this is where I usually put a disclaimer, but fuck you, this album doesn't need a god damn disclaimer you stupid little faggot

    Hell Yeah. Blasting this cd in your car is most excellent.

    Though I would be even more excited if I never bought expensive as hell tickets to the philly show where they flaked. Buncha flakes.

    It was still the 70's and I can look down with scorn and derision, safe in the knowledge I wasn't born in the 80's.


    You and your 80's
    Your precious 80's
    It would still be the 70's if it weren't for you.

    Yes yes son

    this album totally put all the Stryper and Warrant hair-metal debacles right in their fucking place.

    Excellent choice.

    I cry when I think about this album though. When it came out we all believed GnR was going to be the next HUGE band...and they were...for a very short time. They honestly could have been the next Rolling Stones or some other equally popular super band but instead Axl is a dick and Velvet Revolver rose frm the ashes...and sucked.

    On opposite day maybe.

    Use Your Illusion 1 and 2 could have been one really good album, but instead it was stretched out and released as two sort of good albums.

    I might have to go Mr. Brownstone although Night train would be a close second.

    Thats AWESOME. They're my second favorite band. They'll be incredible, I've seen them in concert a few times and they rocked my socks off pretty fucking hard. One show I was at they opened with "My Morning Song" with about a 10 minute jaunt into "Whole Lotta Love". Best fucking opener ever. I think a few people in the audience might have died when they looked directly into its face.

    Plus, the best thing about them is they allow any kind of recording of their live shows. There are recordings available for pretty much any show they ever did. Its pretty cool to search the crowesbase and find rare or unique stuff that they did, and then trade with someone who has that show. I have a big collection of black crowes live shows at home.
