Damn, what a discussion... and all because of me, sorry :P.

Not to mention that John added a lot of sharpness to the sound through his guitar playing and ideas. And even Mick said many times that it's definitely the best thing they have done as a band but Mick's the man and he's always been the brightest spot of Mötley Crüe for me :).


Hate to break it to ya, but it actually IS a grunge-sounding album. All the way. You can hear this lame-ass low-tuned guitars throughout the whole CD. I'd rather listen to the decadent and fucked up stories of debauchery written by 80's rock gods themselves (just like it is on their 80's albums) than about 'smoking the sky' or shit like that. There is no comparison with their 80's releases. John is a decent singer but he isn't half as charismatic as Vince.


No harm done man :). But I don't agree with you. It's a hard rock/metal album for me, definitely not grunge. And since I'm not into cheap lyrics about parties and so called overrated "rock 'n' roll lifestyle" or ballads made for MTV (still Dr. Feelgood is their best work), I prefer that "darker" and more serious Mötley Crüe, although like I said earlier, it shouldn't have been labeled as... Mötley Crüe ;). It would've been appreciated more under a different name. They're like two different bands. And self-titled album owns a really bad Generation Swine or New Tattoo. To me of course. A matter of taste. Just like John is a way better singer than Vince, especially nowadays, hah.

Also in The Scream, really good stuff :).

No provocation at all. Just pointing out the obvious. I've never thought of Metallica as a pioneer or a very good band. Mediocre stuff. For the instance, Anthrax blows them outta the water.


If it wasn't for Metallica then bands like Slayer or Megadeth would still be playing small, dirty clubs :P. That's a fact and they know it as well ;). Metallica is just another level, another dimension. Out of the other three thrash giants, I like Anthrax the most too.

Out of the big 4 the two bands i always Return to is Metallica and Slayer.
And Metallica is the best. Anthrax is generic THRAASH TIL DEATH COCAINNEEE PARTY MEGAAADETH bullshit.
However Metallica crafted more or less 5 masterpieces(Master of Puppets being the best). Anthrax haven't even got a chance on songs like Battery, Of Wolf And Man, Whiplash, Ride The Lightning and Dyers Eve.


I think you're too hard on Anthrax my friend ;). Among The Living is an amazing album and already a thrash classic. Stuff made with John Bush is really good too, I like that singer and his voice a lot.

I actually did… 3 times. That was the moment, I decided that I‘ll never go to a Metablica concert again!
They played too much of their new stuff and Kirks guitar wasn‘t even tuned one of the times I saw them.
"Supportact" was Black Sabbath with fuckin Ronnie James Dio! Support! Can you believe that? And the worse about it was that Heaven And Hell was so fuckin silent, I‘ve heard more of the people around me than from the band and the metalgod Dio, Metablica of course was loud and the sound (because of the not even tuned guitars) was horrible. So much to being ashamed of what I said. :P


Dude, we've been at the same show ;). I travelled to Austria just to witness that (yes, I'm very hardcore fan) and it was one of the best days in my life. Metallica killed and James' voice in 2007 was really powerful and raspy. Of course they've played some new stuff, that's why they record new music and are not ashamed of it, unlike many bands from the same generation playing the same "classic" setlists each night... I have a soundboard recording from that show and everything sounds great. You've probably been in some bad place during the gig, I was in the first row and could hear everything well, despite all the loudness around. And Heaven & Hell were simply amazing, I loved seeing 'em. Rest in peace Ronnie.

Same here, there's Metallica and another three bands :P.

I hate this opinion that only this MC '94 stuff contains some dark and really serious lyrics and all the 80's albums are just plain stupid fun and sex songs. NOT TRUE.
I was writing about it before but TOP has some really dark lyrics too, so does Shout and Girls, mostly about the dark side of L.A. and its streets, and also many so-called heroine diaries.
The self-titled album just doesn't really do it for me. The only songs I can make it through while listening to this album would be Power To The Music, Hooligan's Holiday and maybe Misunderstood (which is quite boring anyway). And yeah, I also think this should never been released under the Motley Crue moniker.
I'd still pick Vince's singing over John's anyday. It's a matter of charisma and a tone of voice. Vince has a really unique voice while John sounds like many other singers.

I don't think so. If not Metallica, some other band would be made the pioneers of some "new metal genre" after packing loads of money into their promotion by the record company. There was a shitload of other bands doing the same kinda stuff at the same time Metallica was starting to play.

If you ask me it's not completely off topic yet.

Once it is I'll split it to a new thread :P

I actually agree. Vince singing is just unique, John isn‘t bad but you‘re right on that. It sounds like everybody else. The whole album doesn‘t really do it for me as much as their other ones. Theaters Of Pain is actually a pretty good one, I‘d say. And I actually go for Saints Of Los Angeles as well.

Ditto!
We had to finally agree on something at some point.

But then again, I think as long as we talk about Motley Crue albums it's not a total off topic.

Haha thanks =P
Who could tell i love 80's sounding stuff?
Being a Crashdiet fan, is there really  anything weird with loving the 80's stuff? I don't think so. Guess this is where the whole Crashdiet idea came from at the very beginning. And the old stuff (Riot Youth, Miss Pain, early version of Queen Obscene) sounds totally 80's. ;)

Also, aforementioned Whitesnake's 1987 and Van Halen's 1984 are definitely one of my faves too. I'm a DLR-maniac.

No, nothing weird at all, haha :) I love DLR too!

I dont think I can pick just five favourite albums. It changes all the time. I think I only can say one album that'll always stay on that list, and that is Cinderella's Night Songs. That is the best thing ever. The other four is different from day to day.
