To my mind 'Shout At the Devil', the album before GGG, was a bit of a dark horse. The band appeared to be in drag on the inner sleeve, framed in the fires of hell, and there was an occult theme to both the title track and to Children of the Beast. Continuing the occult theme the jet black pentagram adorned cover nodded towards more religious subversion (not popular in the US!) and the uniform, heavy, guitar sound was as dirty as the thumping bottom end of every song.

Roll forward to the album 'Girls, Girls, Girls', and you have an evolution to a lighter guitar attack sound with much thinner, brighter, 'poppy' production, albeit the sound and style is as uniform on every song as it was on the predecessor (bar the dire half ballad 'Nona'). On the cover the band are now lolling around on 'Motor Sickles' (to quote 'Wild Side') on the Sunset Strip adorned in the standard hair metal garb of the day and the songs are largely about sex, booze and partying. This is therefore not deep stuff, but it is a step up in the bands approach as they sound tighter and more together as a band than on SATD, despite the growing drug abuse. It notably contains the classic singles tracks ‘Wild Side’, the lascivious title track and the emotional piano ballad ‘You’re All I Need’, along with the excellent driving ‘Dancing On Glass’ and the AC/DC sounding 'All in the name of..'.

So, apart from the odd sounding, out of place, ‘Nona’ and the filler track 'Sumthin for Nuthin', it’s a cracking feel-good album with probably more overall cohesion than SATD, partly as it doesn’t plumb the depths of covering a naff Beatles song to break the overall creative flow of the album (although this release does inflict a lamentable live cover of Elvis' ‘Jailhouse Rock’ on the listener).

This is one for listening to loudly (in order to flesh out the bright guitar and production), in an open top car, in the summer.

This is one of those albums which contains some absolute classic songs, such as the title track, Wild Side and You're All I Need but also contains some disposable dross like Sumthin For Nuthin and Nona. All in all though a very listenable to album, particularly on a sunny day as you're cruising in your car. It was around this era that Bon Jovi had just broken onto the scene with Livin' On A Prayer and all metal acts of the time were trying to cash in on the act, out went all the black leather and pentagrams and in came tonnes of hairspray, suntans and muscles. It's a fun album and not to be taken too seriously.

Girls, Girls, Girls captures the raw energy that Motley Crue are best known for within there early years of there career.
The songs vary from racing tracks such as wild side and All in the name of, to the slower ballads of your all I need and Nona.
With the lyrics consisting of tales of sex, drugs and rock n roll which is what Motley Crue built there reputation around, I feel the album best sum's up there overall image during the 1980's.
As a long time fan this would defiantly be placed within my top 3 Motley Crue albums of all time.

When you consider that this album was written by someone with a raging heroin and cocaine addiction, it makes you wonder why modern music is so highly rated.
This album is one of very few I could listen to over and over and not get bored. It's a timeless shout out to those who just want to have a good time in life, and the poppy guitar riffs never fail to put me in a good mood.
Nikki Sixx, you're a hero!

Got this when I was but a young lad, back in '88, just after I discovered Guns N' Roses. It's a trip through Sunset Strip, the LA rock scene, fast living and fast women, with, like, gnarly guitar playing and discernable melodies. It's not as aggressive (or paranoid) as Appetite For Destruction; this is just a young man's party album. It's dumb and superficial, but it's great fun as long as you don't analyse too far. "Girls Girls Girls", "Dancing On Glass", even "Jailhouse Rock" - they just crank up to eleven and have a blast. Fun, in a 15 year old kinda way!
