I voted for AFD. I think its hype is a bit exaggerated in general, but it will always be very special to me.

I opted for UYI I, the combination of the more sophisticated, epic songwriting of UYI II and still raw agression from AFD.

I actually prefer UYI II to I. If I were to rank the albums I think it would go like this:

1. Appetite for Destruction
2. UYI II
3. Chinese Democracy
4. UYI I
5. Lies
6. The Spaghetti Incident!?

It's cool that CD is in the lead, though. I like the fact that GN'R still create new fans and isn't just a nostalgia band for old people.

I don't mean to be a sourpuss but I think UYI 1 is all filler with the exception of November Rain and Don't Damn Me.

So you think Coma is filler? Don't Cry? Double Talkin' Jive? Dust N' Bones? Maybe most of them are less grand than on UYI I, but I love those songs..

Indeed I do.
Double Talkin Jive and Dust N Bones are the very definition of filler.
I don't like Coma at all. Don't understand how or why people do. I will go to my grave thinking people like it just because it's 10 minutes long. It's 10 minutes long, it has to be good!! Just like when fans mention the length of a concert as if that means anything in terms of quality.
Don't Cry is just blah boring. Horrible horrible horrible lyrics. The alt version on 2 is so much better.

I like Coma because of:

1 Great main riff
2 No clear basic verse-chorus-verse-chorus setup
3 Great vocals by Axl
4 Epic ending

I often like long songs, but not because of their length but because of most long songs I know are from bands which really keep the songs exciting and interesting for the whole 7/8/9/10+ minutes.

Metallica's St. Anger has fine examples of what NOT to do if you want to include longs songs.

For Don't Cry, I think the music is more important than the lyrics, so the 2 different versions don't matter too much to me, although the different interlude ending of the Alt. version is pretty cool (more like another verse with different vocals compared to the actual 'please remember' interlude).

St Anger..it's almost like they didn't remember how to end songs. They were interminable. They just kept going and going, repeating themselves with no clear vision.

I'm more of a lyric guy although all parts are important for a quality song. That's why I don't like This I Love. Great piece of music, horrendous lyrics. And the song suffers because of the lyrics.

Give me a Nick Cave with his great lyrics any day over an Yngwie Malmsteen and his guitar prowess. Although to be fair, Nick Cave is a great musician and his band The Bad Seeds are incredible as well.

I like Coma because of the ending but could do without the first 5 minutes, Double Talkin' Jive because of the rumbling riff and Don't Cry alternative version because of Axl's vocal melodies (not the lyrics). I am not a huge fan of Dust N' Bones.

I also dislike This I Love because of the horrible lyrics, but also because of the sappy melody and orchestration.

I am surprised CD is leading in the poll. Not that it is a bad album, just that I thought the typical GN'R fan prefers old guns. Perhaps most fans on fan boards are fans of the current music? In either way, great that the band can still create new fans and create music that people love.

For me, being a fan since the very beginning, my musical tastes have expanded a great deal over time and I don't find AFD or the Illusions albums appealing anymore aside from a handful of songs. They really sound dated to me and I find it difficult to even get thru a few songs, let alone one of the albums as a whole. I might feel the same way about CD in a few years too though!

I've had periods where I've felt early GN'R was outdated, especially in regards to whatever current music I was listening at the time. But I always go back to it, especially AFD, and get into it again. Sure, it is dated and so obviously created by a young, immature guys who I can't really relate to much any more, but still...it's an affection thing, I guess.

I like all their album but most is 'Use Your Illusion II', I can't explain why. I just like it more than the others.

Only 14 votes, but interesting that CD is the most popular record here at A4D.
