"Plug me in I'm alive tonight, out on the streets again!"

Every track on this album made you feel you were part of the LA scene; staggering from the Roxy to the Whiskey. Not a duff track as Vince, Mick, Tom and Nikki show you what glam rock is all about. I was young and impressionable, listening to Def Leppard, Hanoi Rocks and Dogs D'amour when this thing hit my local record shop. £££ later it was screamin' through my speakers....

Live Wire tore open a hundred mile an hour burst of music that wrecked my room, Piece Of Your Action saw me crooning into the mirror, my hair teased up like a cheap tart on Hollywood and Vine. Suddenly Rock was fun again, with a sleazy undertone that made you a sex god!

Too Fast For Love leaned over and tongued your ear, making you wanna go out and tear up your local town. Public Enemy #1 was what you wanted to be, long before G N'R appeared. Take Me To The Top sassy and cocky, and finally when the record ended, you flipped it over and played it again.

I still treasure that Vinyl sat next to my player, and it still gets a spin over the C.D most weekends!

I own three (3!) copies of this album on vinyl. One of them is completely spent, not a single song plays correctly these days. Suffice to say that I love this album. And now it's even better than it was originally. By adding the two amazing tracks from their self-printed first single (Stick to your guns and Toast of the town) this album is much more complete. (I for one could never understand why these tracks were left off the original.) The sound is right in your face, the riffs spit and moan, and I think that Vince puts forth his best effort on a Crue album. The only real negative with this album is the live track, Merry go round. There's a very obvious gate on the lead vocals (probably to control feedback) which gets very annoying. One would think they could have dug up a better recording for a release such as this.

When I first heard this album in about 1985 I was hooked.From the power of "Live Wire" to the melody of "On with the show" this is an album created with passion and self belief. Its dirty realism has you almost believing it was recorded in one take. Vince Neil's sometimes screeching, sometimes soft vocals combined with a thumping rhythm section (Nikki Sixx, Bass, Tommy Lee, Drums) and Mick Mars' raw power chords and fast solo's give the overall impression of a no compromise, no prisoners attitude. The cover of the album (Vince Neil's crotch) leaves you with no doubt as to the contents... Leather and studs, blood and guts, rock and roll!

Twenty years ago, a schoolfriend (yes, it was a girl - come to think of it, it was always girls who got me into decent music in those days) was into what was then called "glam rock"; she had bleached, poodle hair and wore spandex and leather (whoa indeed !).

At the time, based more on image than a serious listening, I decided that Motley Crue were loud, brash, sleazy and trashy - and I hated them.

Having now actually listened to this album (on Spotify), I have decided that Motley Crue were loud, brash, sleazy, trashy - and great !

Punky, where GNR are bluesey, this is a great, hard rocking album in a similar vein to Appetite for Destruction

Without boring you with a review of each track I want you to consider the following:
1. There is not one average or weak track on this album. These are timeless rock classics.
2. If you like rock or metal you must buy this as it will instantly become in your top 5 all time favourite cds. (everyone I know owns multiple copies of this CD incase one wears out or is lost)
3. If you own Guns n Roses "Appetite for Distruction" then buy this and you may find that this is as good if not better.
Totally awesome. enough said.

The first, and some say the best, Too Fast is definitely their best statement of intent. Rough, heavy, sleazy and catchy, this was the Crue at their unhinged finest before the ballads crept in from Theatre of Pain onwards.

Best tracks are 'Live Wire', 'Publice Enemie No 1' and the title track but the rest is all chunky, rawk heaven too. A not-so guilty pleasure.

What happened to the Crue? They had it all, then they became rock stars. But what they gained in celebrity, they lost in edge. This album is unique and special and was never to be repeated. Buy it!

I bought this to hear what the fuss was all about. If you like 80's rock music this will be great. I don't like 80's music - at all. The book - The Dirt is altogether different!
