This is one of the best records ever made, even if you don’t like the music, you can’t deny that the recording itself is worth of praise, everything sounds clear, with enough room and my particular interest, the bass lines, are loud and present. Axl Rose’s distinctive voice, has been perfectly managed to float above the music and never overshadow it, or dull it. the guitars arrangements, and keyboards, all have their proper space and nothing sounds crammed together.
Oh but you don’t have an ear or care for the nerdery of engineering and producing?
How about a little underdog story? band of nobodies that moved to LA and played did a little of punk and hard rock fusion, that after being snubbed by the LA rock and glam scene retreated to the punk basics and came out on top?
I love this record so I’m super biased and can talk for hours about why is such a good record. go listen yourself, get some nice headphones and dive in, find the vocalizer pedal parts.
Anyways, “I”, with little to none authority over the topic other than my time in this planet following the odd and bizarre, think this one is a classic.

The second press copy I found it in the trash.
The cover sleeve is water damaged, and the insert is stuck to the inside.
Besides nostalgia, I still think this is one of the best recorded pieces of music.
