Your ticket to Paradise City has been punched: Guns N' Roses' 1987 debut album Appetite for Destruction has received a deluxe reissue that lives up to its monstrous importance and popularity. Appetite For Destruction: Super Deluxe Edition features 4CDs including the album newly remastered for the first time ever; B-sides N' EPs newly remastered; the previously unreleased 1986 Sound City Session N' More recordings; a Blu-ray Audio disc with the album, bonus tracks, and music videos in brand-new 5.1 surround sound along with the unearthed music video for "It's So Easy" originally shot in 1989 but never finished; and a 96-page hardcover book showcasing unseen photos from Axl Rose's personal archive and wealth of memorabilia. In addition, the Super Deluxe Edition contains collectables like never-before-seen band lithos, replica concert tickets, a wall poster, temporary band member tattoos , a Robert Williams painting litho, and a replica "Welcome To The Jungle" video shoot invite flyer originally drawn by Slash. This is seriously not to be missed.
Appetite for Destruction changed history. Unlike anything else of its time, the music was primal and gritty, defined by a solid, hard, bluesy base and dark, sleazy, dirty, and honest themes. While Slash and Izzy Stradlin ferociously spit out dueling guitar riffs, Axl Rose screeched out tales of sex, drugs, and apathy in the big city. Meanwhile, bassist Duff McKagan and drummer Steven Adler formed a limber rhythm section who kept the music loose and powerful. The rest is history, with every track on the 30-million-plus-selling album—including "Sweet Child O' Mine," "Welcome To The Jungle," "Nightrain," "Paradise City," and "Mr. Brownstone”—committed to memory by countless listeners around the world.
