Thoughts on some music albums by Guns ‘N’ Roses, Iron Maiden, Paramore, and Michael Jackson

I recently finished listening to Guns ‘N’ Roses’ debut album Appetite for Destruction; and, barring “It’s So Easy”, every track on this album is a mastapeece!
 
I also recently heard Iron Maiden, Powerslave, Piece of Mind and The Number of the Beast by Iron Maiden, and I liked Iron Maiden more than these. Although I’ve read online that Powerslave is one of their best albums, I didn’t really like it. Piece of Mind and The Number of the Beast come right behind Iron Maiden as #2.
 
I also heard Paramore’s Riot and Brand New Eyes, to which I must say, that Brand New Eyes pales in comparison to Riot. Except for some hard-hitting tracks like Careful, Ignorance, and Brick by Boring Brick, this album has nothing special to offer. Riot’s an amazing album, with tracks like Misery Business, crushcrushcrush, That’s What You Get, For a Pessimist, I’m Pretty Optimistic and much more. Highly recommended!
 
I would say the same thing for Michael Jackson’s Bad and Thriller. While Thriller offers hip tracks like Beat It, Billie Jean, and Thriller; Bad offers — although featuring some duds like Liberian Girl and Just Good Friends — amazing numbers like Speed Demon, Dirty Diana, Smooth Criminal, Leave Me Alone, Another Part of Me and Of course, the title track, Bad.
 
I’m currently going through some stuff performed by Queen. For all the pro-wrestling fans out there, IMO I Want It All by Queen has to be that one track, which can be used by a babyface and a heel. Fun Fact; Ring of Honor’s Dalton Castle uses a slightly modified instrumental version of this song.
