For example, some of the very explicit songs on AFD could have been reworded in a more metaphorical way, sort of like in one of the songs from an extremely popular and fast-selling album by another hard-rock band from another country.
That other album made it into the top 5 selling albums of all time; and GNR's AFD album could have become equally or almost equally popular if the lyrics in a couple of their songs were more subtle.

 Guns n' Roses Album Reviews
Though Guns n’ Roses’ sleazy, tattoo infested image was as calculated as any of their less manly contemporaries, the band did truly live on the edge, doing their best to live up to the rock n’ roll ethos of sex, drugs, and rock n’ roll.
So what if they failed to subsequently live up to expectations; based on Appetite For Destruction I fully expected Guns n' Roses to be the Led Zeppelin of my generation.
Truth is, if properly edited these two albums could’ve made one fantastic record, but considering the lofty expectations and the excessive amount of filler they simply have to be viewed as disappointments when taken together as a whole.

 Al-Ahram Weekly | Opinion | Appetite for destruction
Former President Jimmy Carter, more of a statesman in retirement than many of the US presidents who followed him, has bluntly put it that way: "the invasion of Iraq and all its consequences is one of the greatest blunders a president has ever made."
The raging civil war in Iraq has cost hundreds of thousands of Iraqi and US casualties, billions of dollars worth of destruction and increasing destabilisation of the region.
A cost-benefit analysis would inevitably conclude that Iraq under Saddam Hussein's repressive regime fared much better than liberated, democratic but divided and unstable Iraq under US occupation.
