1001 7" Records You Must Own No.38 Guns N’ Roses – It’s So Easy / Mr. Brownstone
It’s not that I don’t like the Use Your Illusion albums, it’s just they were a bit watered down and sappy at times, something Guns debut album definitely wasn’t. Appetite For Destruction’ is essentially a perfect album from start to finish there’s not a dud track and will forever be hailed as a landmark in rock history, here we have my two favourite songs from the album. ‘It’s So Easy’ which is one of the lesser famous singles yet one of their best showing everything that was great about this band from Axl Rose’s venomous spitted lyrics to Slash’s untouchable guitar lines. On the flipside you get ‘Mr. Brownstone’ a song about the spiralling drug addiction that had already started taking its toll on the band to a Bo-Diddley beat, untouchable single.
