Not a top 10 album for me, but I still like it. Rocket Queen is the best song.

"Rocket Queen" is like "Three Days" by Jane's Addiction.  Two songs. EPIC MASTERPIECES!

I voted for the "Hell Yes" option but I really wish their had been a third option "Yes, it was great when it came out, and might still be great but it has been so overplayed through the years that I don't really enjoy it anymore".  Sort of a blend of the 1'st 2 options.  I would have voted for that option.

Loved it when it first came out however and listed to it a ton.  Its just not really aged well (mostly due to the overplaying of the big hits on the radio).

I get what you are saying but man I still love the album.  The only track I skip is "Paradise City."  It's such a great record to play to on the drums.
Perhaps that's why I love it so much!

I think the album withstands the test of time, but the two "Use Your Illusion" albums are crap.

Use Your Illusion I is 90% filler, but I actually really like UYI II. Estranged is my favorite GNR song and just one of my favorite songs in general. Let's not talk about My World though.

UYI I has some fantastic stuff though.  Dust N Bones, Bad Obsession, Bad Apples, November Rain, Coma and Live and Let Die are all really great tunes.

Coma is a great riff. I like that one. It's fun to play along to as well.

Did you know that "November Rain" was written before "Appetite?"

I have a demo cd boot somewhere.  It's on there.

It's raw and rad.

MTeVil killed off a lot of bands.

   That's a very good point!  Although I remember how they killed "Tom Sawyer" "The Big Money"  "Subdivisions" and "Time Stand Still."  After that not so much although I remember the "Stick It Out" video was always on.  The guy with the fukking grunge long hair in the chair.  Annoying.

Nope. But every person enjoys their own idea of what makes a record great.

Not a top ten for me, but it certainly has it's place in rock history.

It's great, and it could easily find it's way into many people's top tens. For me, it's very good, great, but not a real humongous personal favorite. I have a connection with it, but I have a stronger connection with many other albums in that vein.

Absolutely love the album, but I prefer the UYI albums. Coma, Estranged, Civil War, Locomotive, You Could Be Mine, 14 Years, Dust N' Bones, Right Next Door To Hell, Don't Damn Me, etc. I find those to be much better than most of the material on Appetite. AFD just happens to be more concise/consistent.
