Review in the Edmonton Journal, August 27, 1987:

1987.08.26 - Edmonton Convention Centre, Edmonton, Canada 1987_014

Transcript of the part about Guns N' Roses:
Helen Metella wrote:[...]
Despite an immature tendency to mythologize drug abuse and other establishment taboos, the no-frills Los Angeles’ quintet Guns N' Roses display a wide scope for non-linear arrangements and cathartic and often quite personal hard rock.

Welcome to the Jungle rumbled and swayed at unexpected intervals, (expletive deleted) Crazy was the last word in liberated, let-er-rip wildness and a brutish cover of Bob Dylan’s Knockin' On Heaven’s Door conveyed many heretofore undisclosed layers of pain and regret.

Their signals are a bit mixed but they hint at a vulnerability made all the more poignant by their swagger and volume.
