Review: Guns N’ Roses – Sweet Child O Mine (Rock)

This review covers the rock track Guns N’ Roses – Sweet Child O Mine.

This track was released in 1992 as part of a single. It is a re-release from the late 80s.

The track starts with a guitar element. A second guitar element comes in as well as a third with a drum kit. The drum kit continues to build up. At that point, the vocals come in for a first verse.

From there, the main chorus comes in with the main guitar making a return. This is capped off with an instrumental section.

At that point, the vocals take the track into the next verse. After that, the track goes into the main chorus again. The instrumental section then repeats with some minor variances.

From there, the main chorus is repeated with some changes. This is capped off with a guitar solo.

Some vocals then come in. This is not quite a verse, but it is something. This sort of morphs into a quasi-main chorus before the track then breaks down.

This is one of those tracks that I’m told is one of the best tracks ever created. I will say that it’s not terrible, but it’s far from the best track I’ve ever heard.

The strongest part of the track is probably the beginning. It is a very solid guitar element. From there, the track more or less gradually deteriorates.

The vocals are alright, but they do try too hard in some parts as well.

One thing I never liked in tracks is fluff for the sake of fluff. The last portion of the track sounds like the artist ran out of ideas, but wanted to extend the track past the five minute mark. The bits and pieces of lyrics just didn’t quite match with the rest of the track.

Overall, this is an alright track. It starts off pretty well, but the quality just gradually breaks down after that. By the end of the track, it is all fluff and no substance, making this track seem longer then it should have been. So, a decent one, but highly overrated.
