If you bought this from a Indie Retailer some had limited edition G&R's temporary tattoos that were given out on purchase! I know Rough Trade stores had them.

This remaster is such a ridiculously clean pressing! This is absolutely how it should be done! I've been listening to this album since it came out in 1987 and this is the best I've EVERY heard it sound! The packaging too is spectacular. If you're anything like a Guns N' Roses fan you NEED this. Also the download code is for all of the tracks from the 5 CD version too :-)

a really different sounding version of this album but a damn good one. Comparing this to the original vinyl pressing, this reissue has a more laid back polished sound. Incredible soundstage, and I'm hearing certain passes of an extra guitar, or a louder backing vocal (Nightrain... Nightrain...) that just seem to jump from the speakers more. The rawness of the original is gone. That said the power and blues of the album fills that gap. That said if you don't have a copy yet, get it. No regrets.

Such a great sounding record!!!!!!!!!!!

Absolutely floored. Appetite For Destruction was the first tape I ever bought as a kid and I've listened to this album more than any other album, and probably more than most GNR fans. I know it inside out. I can tell you with absolute certainty it has never sounded as good as it does here. Every song feels like new life has been breathed into it. This should be referenced by any label/band/pressing plant when it comes to what 'definitive edition on vinyl' SHOULD mean. Packaging is fantastic as well. For $33 this is a steal. I highly recommend this to any GNR fan who has been holding out for the definitive vinyl version of this masterpiece of an album.

Wasn't going to grab this originally, but I had an FYE gift card and nothing else I really wanted to use it on, so I pulled the trigger. Glad I did. I've been wanting a vinyl version of this for some time, but originals and reissues alike are too pricy, and I've heard that the original CD is just as good, if not better than the original LP, so I was never too keen to get it on vinyl. Now that this is spread across 2 LPs, this is probably the best this will sound on vinyl.

The guitars sound great, drums and vox are very up front, I could use a little more off Duff's bass, but that's just my personal taste, and as I recall, the original master didn't emphasize it much, either. Doesn't sound compressed, at least not that much.

Vinyl quality is fantastic. GZ usually gets a lot of shit for bad quality LPs, but in reality, they usually just get bad masters to work with. I've never had any problems to speak of with their vinyl. Flat, clean, centered. Spot on.

Having both versions of the artwork included is a nice touch, although you could tell they just blew up the original art on the gatefold to make it fit, it looks a little grainy and unclear. The slipcase is nice, though I'll have to be careful storing it so it doesn't get damaged by or damage other records in my collection. The pics on the inserts and the gatefold are great, makes you wonder why these weren't used in the original album.

Only real gripe here, is side 4 - the hologram. It's one of those things where you wonder, "of all the things they COULD HAVE put on this side, and they did THIS?" With all due respect to the artist that did this, it's just a gimmick, and something you'll look at once and say, "cool", and NEVER look at again. It's not like it changes or anything every time you look at it. I would rather a few of the unreleased songs be included, like "Shadow Of Your Love", and about 3 or 4 of the other unreleased songs from the Sound City demos would've been a nice touch. And at least you'll listen to them again, and it wouldn't have been a waste of a side. Again, personal opinion, but I can't help but think many others would agree.

Aside from that - I think everyone involved with this - from the band, mastering engineer, plating/pressing plant, art designers - was on the same page here, and wanted to put out a quality product, and it shows.

I really dig this remastered version. The overall package is pretty nice and worth the money, I think.

My downloadcode gave me all 4 CDs of the Super Deluxe Edition...is that correct? Anybody else got all 4 CDs? If this is normal, than you get a lot of music for your bucks...
