How does a band with such a great album produce such lower quality albums after that?

Just like that.

I write the lack of success off to the chemistry issue. Like many bands out there, once a key member is gone, they never really re-create that same sound and chemistry again. Axl, Slash, Duff, Izzy, Steven all fell into place so well. They captured the attitude, aesthetic and exact moment of rock at that moment.

As far as low quality releases, I'd say some of their stuff might not have lived up to what we all wanted or expected from GnR but I wouldn't call them low quality really.


I personally liked Lies, that had the grit and energy of Appetite too me. Of course it wasn't an official full length recording. If you're talking about production and sound, it was top quality.

Use Your Illusion I&II - While it was definitely NOT Appetite, I wouldn't call it a total failure. Def a different vibe than everyone was expecting.. Having said that, it was still better than a lot of things coming out at that time.

I feel like it was GnR's attempt to do a super album really highlighting a step toward higher production quality, multiple layers of effects and instrumentalism.

Chinese Democracy - I didn't even listen to it, because it was not GnR IMO.

It's So Easy + Nighttrain. Gotta be side one. Though Rocket Queen does make me blush. 10/10 album.

I think I have I only heard the first song on that album (Welcome to the jungle) .. When I was going to school this girl had a boombox everyday on the bus and she had a cassette of this album and kept playing that song over and over!! (I guess it is her favourite)

Appetite was the first cassette I bought. I was completely mesmerized by the video for Welcome to the Jungle. I was also traumatized by the artwork of the robot rape on the inside fold out. Tame by today’s standards, but at the time it was something I hid underneath my bed.

Gonna go listen to Out Ta Get Me now.

Hooray for internets.
