4.0 out of 5 stars Better than I expected from Crüe frontman 26 Feb 2009
Format:Audio CD
In the early 1990s, Mötley Crüe was going through all sorts of trouble which led to the firing of frontman Vince Neil and the appointment of The Scream vocalist/guitarist John Corabi. While they began work on the album that would eventually be released in 1994 called 'Mötley Crüe', Vince teamed up with Billy Idol guitarist Steve Stevens to make an album of his own. This, titled 'Exposed' was relased in 1993. It basically picks off from where the 'Dr. Feelgood' album left off but with more technical music composed by the excellent Stevens. I will now look at each track individually:

Look in her Eyes - After the rather convoluted intro thing, a monster riff begins and you really get a feel for the types of song that are going to be on this album. It's pretty heavy with plenty of pinch harmonics thrown in by Stevens. Vince's vocals are strong and cut through the mix. There is also a great guitar solo which involves Stevens using a toy gun to make some weird noises. 8/10

Sister of Pain - This was the first single of the album and helped to get the album to respectable chart position in America. It has a real Mötley Crüe feel to it with a very singable chorus. 8/10

Can't Have Your Cake - A pretty bluesy number with a great driving beat. It's not anything particulary special but it has a great guitar solo and is rather enjoyable. 6/10

Fine, Fine Wine - Another song that could easily be on a Mötley Crüe album. The chorus has that Vince Neil factor and has some great back-up vocals that really enhance the track. The lyrics are rather lame though. 7/10

The Edge - This is my favourtie song on the album.

This album is a must for any metal fan. Vince Neil is at his best, I would go as far to say this album is better than anything he did with Motley Crue!

I had bought this album on cassette when it came out, and just wanted an up to date version really.

If sister of pain isn`t one of Vince`s finest pieces of work, then i wanna hear the piece that is.

3.0 out of 5 stars When Rock N Roll was "bling", "bling" 25 Jan 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
"Can't have your cake and eat it too?"
Vince Neil was without a doubt one of the most charismatic "glam metal" stars that ever lived. "Exposed" captures Vince at his peak (rich, dating Pamela Anderson, a playboy...etc). Listening to this you can imagine yourself in a clean, metallic blue bar, being serving the finest whiskey with a two playmates on each arm. (check the lyrics Amazon).
No doubt, in rock musics' current state you'll keep this one under wraps, but the catchy lyrics and crashing guitars will put on a smile on your face.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 Star's for Vince Neil 9 Aug 2007
By W. Larson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Ok the former Motley Crue band member is not the crue. This wonderful audio cd is filled with true ballets of Vince. Vince has always had his own style. The syle of some of the former Motley Crue band hits can be dirrectly traced back to Vince Neil.(((( Doctor Feel Good )))) for example.
Released in 1993 by vince neil. This cd has been out of print since 1999. They sold over 3 million copie retail world wide. Hit song Look in her eyes went to number one in london on the billboard charts. Fine Fine Wine was ranked # 5 on the billboard chart's in spain and in london as high as number #23.
Dont think for a second that this cd will be the "Classic" 80's Motley Crue sound. It is an advanced sound or a rebirth of the sound.
So in closing if you liked the sound and style of motley crue you shoul pick up a copy of this cd today.
5 STARS TO VINCE NEIL..............

4.0 out of 5 stars An overlooked treasure 18 Oct 2005
By Daniel Ferguson-Maltzman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Vince Neil ruled the 80s. He is recognized, probably second only to David Lee Roth, as the voice of 80s hard rock and metal. As the lead singer of Motley Crue, Neil scored six chart-topping, platinum albums, from 1981 to 1991. During the Crue's heyday, their songs dominated MTV and radio. With massive World-wide tours, the Crue conquered the globe. But at the dawn of the 90s, trouble began.

1992 saw the fall of 80s style hard rock, the rise of grunge/alt. rock, and the dismissal of Vince from the Crue.

Not dismayed from his firing (although the Crue maintains that he quit), Neil spent most of the 90s as a solo artist.

80s rockers in the 90s responded to the grunge/alt revolution differently. Some bands (Motley Crue, Warrant) sought to update their sound to fit in with the current trends. While others bands (Dokken, Slaughter) chose to stick to the pop-metal formula of yore. Neil chose the latter path.

Without missing a beat, Neil started a new band with former Billy Idol guitarist Steve Stevens, Dave Marshall (guitar), Vikki Fox (Drums), and Robbie Crane (bass). Their debut album, "Exposed" was released in 1993. "Exposed" lived in a vacuum, completely unaware of the changes that had taken place in rock and was a complete throw-back to 80s pop-metal. While the album, no doubt, delighted fans nostalgic for old-school metal, it failed to make a major impact. Within a year Stevens had returned to Billy Idol and Marshall was gone as well.

For his new band, Vince found Brent Woods to play lead, and retained the "Exposed" rhythm section of Foxx and Crane.

"Exposed" had acted as though the grunge/alt rock movement had never even occurred. For his second solo outing, Neil decided to chance his luck with a different approach. With the Dust Brothers (The Beastie Boys) producing, "Carved in Stone," embraced a new 90s sound. Although it is most definitely a rock album, "Carved in Stone" has elements of hip-hop, and the sound and tone are distinctly dark. "Carved in Stone" is the darkest album Neil had made since the Crue's classic "Shout at the Devil" (1983).

Although "Exposed" had tremendous instrumental firepower, the song-writing was lacking and thus the album was not up-to-par with classic Crue. Fortunately, this is not a problem for the follow-up. Compared to "Exposed," "Carved in Stone" is better written, with catchier hooks and grooves. The lyrics had also improved and had considerably more substance. While "Exposed" was a fun retro album (with amazing guitar work), it was ultimately, a fluff piece. "Carved in Stone" is darker, edgier, leaner, and meaner.

While "Carved in Stone" certainly has a dark 90s sound/vibe, the songs are also highly melodic with good song along choruses. It's not as though Neil completely abandoned his roots and tried to sound trendy, i.e., Tommy Lee's "Methods of Mayhem" (1999). What he did is update his sound for a new, contemporary audience. Unfortunately, few cared.

The album opens up strong with the mid-tempo, grinding "Breakin' in the Gun," told from the perspective of its sadistic narrator. "The Crawl" could have been a hit, as it has the perfect blend of an 80s sing-along chorus, and a 90s dark, brooding theme. "One Way" is one of the more hip-hop sounding songs on the disc, although it is rocking enough to please most old-school Crue-heads. The haunting "Black Promises" has a strong melody and could also have been a contender to be used as a single. "Skylar's Song," written for Vince Neil's dying daughter, is one of the most beautifully written heartfelt songs you will ever hear. The melodic "Make U Feel" and the angry, urgent "Writing on the Wall" are effective and keep up the momentum. The lethargic "Find a Dream," and the hopeless "One Less Mouth to Feed" are good, if not the most memorable songs. The album comes back in full force with the hopeless but beautiful mini-epic, "The Rift."

"Carved in Stone" was actually ahead of its time. It might have actually been a big hit, had it been released only a few years later, at the height of Nu-Metal. It would have been easy to imagine hearing these songs along side the likes of Kid Rock, KORN, and Limp Bizkit. Only Neil's album was far more melodic, with actual guitar solos that didn't sound like the inside of a meat-grinder.

"Carved in Stone" is most comparable to Motley Crue's "Generation Swine,"(1997) which was released two years later (after Neil had rejoined the group). Both "Carved in Stone" and "Generation Swine" see an 80s artist update their sound for a 90s audience. But "Generation Swine" sounds contrived and forced, whereas "Carved in Stone" sounds genuinely dark and edgy.

It's a shame that more people didn't check out "Carved in Stone" when it was first released, because it's a really cool album. While it isn't quite as good as "Too Fast for Love" (1982) or "Shout at the Devil," (1983), it's as good as just about anything else Vince did with the Crue. If you're a Crue fan and missed "Carved in Stone" the first time around, try giving it a spin.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome!!! 28 April 2008
By Deimos - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Solid debut as a solo act for Vince Neil. Im guessing when the misguided Crue heard Neils solo meterial is why they got him backin the band. Neil's solo stuff picks up right where the crue left off, Motley Crue's self titled album after they fired Vince was definatly not up to par. Thank god's Neil is back in the Crue now and they are rockin better than ever!

3.0 out of 5 stars A respectable debut 13 Oct 2005
By Daniel Ferguson-Maltzman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
3. 5 Stars

The start of the 1990s looked promising for Motley Crue. The band had ruled the 1980s with massive tours, videos in constant rotation, hit singles, and had five multi-platinum albums under their belt. 1991 saw the release of yet another platinum hit, the greatest hits retrospective "Decade of Decadence."

In 1991 Motley Crue signed a multi-million dollar contract with Elektra Records. Indeed,

The 90s looked as though it was going to be a great decade...but it was not to be.

In 1992 Vince Neil suffered two sharp blows. First, he was fired from Motley Crue (although the rest of the band maintains that he quit). Second, the rise of grunge and alternative rock rendered Motley Crue's music and style obsolete.

Vince Neil ruled the 1980s as one of the decade's most popular and charismatic frontmen. His sunny California sunset-strip, bad-boy image fit the 80s metal scene like a glove. In the 90s, however, Neil was suddenly and unexpectedly out-of-place. Despite a shift in the musical climate, and without a band, Neil didn't miss a beat.

Soon after leaving the Crue he assembled a new band. Billy Idol's right-hand-man Steve Stevens on lead guitar, Dave Marshall (guitar), Robbie Crain (bass), and Vikki Fox (drums).

Technically, Neil's new band was as good as the old one (except for maybe the drum department). Guitarist Steve Stevens was really the centerpiece of the new outfit. Stevens is one of the most gifted guitar players of the 80s metal genre and is a far, far better player than the Crue's Mick Mars.

The spring of 1993 saw the release of "Exposed." It debuted respectably at number thirteen on the Billboard charts and sold a few hundred thousand copies. The showing of "Exposed" was a far cry away from the huge success of "Dr. Feelgood," (1989) released only a few years prior. Still, in an era where Pearl Jam and Nirvana ruled the rock world, "Exposed" was a moderate success, relatively speaking.

"Exposed" lives in a vacuum, completely unaware of the changes that have taken place in the state of rock. In an age of flannel and honesty, "Exposed" is a complete throwback to the superficial flashy 80s.

It's been established that "Exposed" is retro, but how do the songs measure up? To be honest, the album is a bit of a letdown. Considering the talent involved, with Steve Stevens on guitar, this album should have been exceptional. As it is, it's pretty good, but not great.

The problem is not the band. The band sounds great. They are tight, muscular, and energized. Stevens playing throughout the album is phenomenal. Killer, killer solos pervade each and every song.

The problem with this album is the songwriting. The band had the talent, but they didn't have Nikki Sixx. With Stevens on guitar, the Vince Neil Band of '93 may have been technically better than the Crue, but they didn't have a great songwriter. While the album sounds great, it lacks substance. Most of the album is quite good, but there is nothing quite as memorable as "Wild Side," "Looks that Kill," or "Kickstart my Heart."

The album gets off to a great start with the fantastic "Look in Her Eyes." It's fast, has a great hook, and a long, long, intricate solo. "Sister of Pain," although a little cheesy, is effective and also has a good hook and sing-along-chorus. The band sounds great on "Can't Have your Cake," but the hook just isn't there. "Fine, Fine, Wine," is good, but not great. It's fun to listen to, but ultimately forgettable. The album gets back on its feet with the groove laden, infectious "The Edge."

Of course the album needs its obligatory power ballads. "Can't Change Me," while no "Home Sweet Home," is still quiet good. A cover of Heathen's rapid-fire "Set Me Free" far outshines the original. The mid-tempo, cocky "Living is a Luxury" keeps up the momentum and is a nice change of pace. "Your Invited (But Your Friend Can't Come) is just filler (a far better version can be found on the "Encino Man" (1992) soundtrack). The mid-tempo "Gettin' Hard," while not the album's strongest track, has a good hook. The album closes with the power-balled, would-be arena anthem, "Forever." While "Forever" is rather generic, it's effective.

Overall, it's an enjoyable album, even if the songs aren't very memorable.

In an age of flannel shirts and depressing songs, "Exposed" was totally irrelevant and out of place. However, Neil should be applauded for sticking to his guns, following his heart, and not jumping on the flavor-of-the-month bandwagon. If "Exposed" is anything, it's sincere. That's probably its biggest asset.

If "Exposed" had been released just three years earlier, it probably would have gone triple platinum. As it is, the album just didn't come out at the right time and has been reduced to bargain-bin fodder. That's a shame to, because while "Exposed" may not be as strong as "Too Fast for Love," (1982) or "Shout at the Devil," (1983) or "Dr. Feelgood," it's still a decent album. It's at least as good as "Theatre of Pain" (1985). If you're a fan of Motley Crue, or flashy guitar work, this CD is worth checking out.

5.0 out of 5 stars way ahead of it's time 22 July 2001
By M. Fitzgerald - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
this album is the better of vince's two solo discs. if you're a music fan you'll love this disc. he's doing things on this recored that "Limp" & "Saliva" are doing now. most of the tracks are dark heavy rock songs,("The Crawl", "MakeUFeel","Black Promisas'","One Less Mouth To Feed" & "The Rift"),with others weilding cazy groovs & hip-hop beets, ("Breaking In The Gun", "One Way", & "Find A Dream"). this is a record I wish evryboddy could hear, it's that good. this album hit the streets in 1995. way ahead of it's time!
