4.0 out of 5 stars Better than I expected from Crüe frontman
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars When Rock N Roll was "bling", "bling"
"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...

This review is from: Exposed (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. It starts with an acoustic guitar part reminicent of Ritchie Blackmore before ripping into a riff that Bullet for my Valentine or Trivium would have been proud to write. All the music to this song is brialliant and Vince sings very well. The guitar solo is also one of Stevens' best. 9/10

Can't Change Me - A ballad, but not a bad one. The verse is very melodic and the chorus is powerful. I can imagine it being very effective towards the end of a live set. Not the best song on the album though. 7/10

Set Me Free - Apparently this a cover of a Sweet song, I didn't know that so I cannot compare it to the original. However, it sounds like Vince could have written it. Not a bad song, but nothing really that special. 7/10

Living is a Luxury - I personally think this song is a bit bland, especially the verses. It is saved by the chorus however which is pretty good. However, not a particularly good song. 6/10

You're Invited (But Your Friend Can't Come) - A really sleazy tune that we have come to expect from Vince, especially after some of the songs in Mötley Crüe. The chorus is very good and the fast paced riff is interesting. 8/10

Gettin' Hard - Another sleazy song with a pretty good chorus. However, the lyrics are not that good and can make you cringe at time. This does not really make the song any worse but it's worth mentioning. Not a band song at all though. 7/10

Forever - Another ballad, so a nice way to finish off a pretty rocky album. It is good to sing along to and has some pretty good lyrics. The chorus is pretty powerful and would be epic live. A good end to a very good album. 8/10

Overall, this album is by no means the greatest album ever made, but it's extremley enjoyable and has some excellent musicianship. In any case, it is much better than Mötley Crüe's self titles albuk in 1994, which I have heard and do not rate too highly.

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.

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.
