This was the tour that never was, excuses like snow on the roof, missing band members, look-a-likes posing as Nikki Sixx. It all started the rapid downfall of the band. Wild Side fires up the engine, and a great job it does too. All strut and sex, the band sounding amazing and really punching above their weight. The title track follows, still strong but lacking the power of Wild Side. Too long spent listing the various cat houses and not enough lyrical content spoil it for me.
Dancing On Glass, suprise suprise, is about Nikki's drugs problem, and the song is a belter. Its also the last really decent track on the album. Bad Boy Boogie is as cliched as it sounds, Five Years Dead is a little better but still way below par for what these guys were capable of. Nona is touching in it's simple tribute to Nikki's grandmother.
All In The Name Of and Sumthin' For Nuthin' are pure filler, easily surpassed by what Faster Pussycat, LA Guns and the like were putting out. You're All I Need is the ballad, not a bad effort and better than anything they tried afterwards like Time For Change.
The live cover of Jailhouse Rock is embarrassing, just a rapid run through and it does nothing for the album, once again, filler closes the Motley record you're better off without. Download the first three tracks and save your money.
