KMA2623 Guns N’ Roses – Appetite For Destruction 2018 2LP Re-Issue
Interim Series: THE AWESOMENESS OF JAMES, PT.1
Right. So we need to talk about the awesomeness of my KMA brother James again. Because THIS gloriousness arrived in the mail for my birthday:
Limited Edition – Foil Slipcase With Robert Williams Original Jacket Art – 2LP – 180g Audiophile Reissue – Gatefold
Remastered for (sic) First Time from Original Stereo Analog Tapes from 192kHz 24-bit High Resolution Transfers
Digital Download Card Included for CD Quality Digital Edition of Album
EXTRA BONUS: GN’R Logo Hologroove Hologram
Now, I don’t need to tell you how much the gift of this beautiful set is awesome, and I really don’t need to tell you (you know already) how much this album rocks.
I will tell you that I dropped the needle of my Rega onto this badass and this LP sounds FANTASTIC and it’s like a bomb going off in the Man Cave and I’m back in 1987 again and holy crap this album was an absolute monster. It has lost none of its swagger, it’s leering sweaty drunken groping, it’s fuck you attitude, its ballsy bluesy perfection, and here it all sounds friggin’ huge.
It’s fun to have it on three huge sides, with the fourth side being the Hologroove Hologram (see video below), and the original artwork was/is, well, as provocative as ever.
But really we come here for the tunes, don’t we. This album, my goodness. Every track a killer.
Best debut album ever? Discuss.
James. JAMES. Thank youuuuuuu!!!
