I mean theres some pretty rapey stuff on Appetite

"Ya get nothin' for nothin'
If that's what ya do
Turn around bitch I got a use for you
Besides you ain't got nothin' better to do
And I'm bored"

Pretty awful.

But while I dont like their themes, the sound of the music is so dang good and Slash is incredilbe <_<.

But thats also why my favorite GNR album is probably Use your Illusion II

Estranged <3

I'd give a considerable edge to Habit, but both of these songs slay.

Love Boat Captain may be the best song on the album.

The sequencing of the first 6 tracks is great. Then it's a bit of a mess. Good material just shambolic sequencing.

You probably haven't listened to Get Right, Cropduster, or Ghost yet. Do that and report back.

Thumbing is a chore for me. Matt phones it in. Ed is mediocre. It's the start of Ed songs that don't belong in PJ.

what, rank an album? OK!

1. I Am Mine
2. Save You
3. Get Right
4. Can't Keep
5. Ghost
6. Cropduster
7. You Are
8. 1/2 Full
9. Green Disease
10. Help Help
11. Love Boat Captain
12. Arc
13. Thumbing My Way
14. All or None
15. Bu$hleaguer


Undone would be two and down six or seven if I included them.

7-14 are all fairly close, and a large step back from 1-6
