And now ... the guitar solo! While the solo definitely features some technically difficult challenges, what stands out the most to me is how it builds lyrically.

Starting with long sustained notes, playing off tension in increasing in intensity, and ending with a powerful flourish, the solo to "Fallen Angel" is textbook construction for a melodic pop or rock guitar solo, and speaks in part to why Poison was able to achieve the kind of success it did; one hook after another, whether in the vocals or the guitar melodies.
