How many good albums did Motley Crue make?

Recommended Posts

They had three great albums: Too Fast For Love, Shout at the Devil, and Dr. Feelgood. Even their not so great albums (Theater of Pain and Girls, Girls, Girls) had memorable singles.

Well at least two...Too Fast For Love and Shout At the Devil are a given, right?

 

Theatre of Pain and Girls Girls Girls are patchy at best...a couple of good numbers in there.

 

Dr FeelGood is a great hair metal album but not a great album, if you dig.

 

The self titled and Quarternary EP aren't all that great either.

 

I actually like Generation Swine quite a lot. It's what Chinese Democracy should have been. They got it out of their system and moved on.

Brandon may be the worst song I've ever heard but it's got some great stuff on it.

 

New Tattoo is a mediocre album, very disappointing.

 

Never heard the  #Ashba one.

Their career trajectory was a downward-sloping curve to the right, for sure.  I'd rank them as:

Shout at The Devil - Great

Too Fast For Love  - Pretty damn good

Theater of Pain - Pretty good

Dr. Feelgood - Good

Girls Girls Girls - decent

then all shit going forward.

None. Self-tittled, the one without a tub of lard called Vince Neil, was halfway decent.

And you mock me for liking NIN. :lol:

I thought their first album was full of an amazing unique energy.  The cleaned up audio version- not the muffled reverb weird version.  That album, wow, it encapsulated the very essence of a speedball converted into bursting-at-the-seams aural soundscapes of sex, drugs, and electricity.  Tommy's drumming was highly addictive air-drumming inspiration.  Mick's guitar was piercing.  Vince's voice sounded young.  The songs were masterpieces of 80s cheeseball rock n roll.  Despite its many imperfections, it captured an essence of the band, the time, the era, the vibe of L.A. in the early 80s.

I've only listened to Dr. Feelgood per the hair band thread. I didn't like it very much. Seems like I should have tried earlier albums.

That's right.

Dr FeelGood is cheese in spray can.
