I love concept/themed albums. Really I do. Not only does an artist have to write good songs, but they have to flow. This album is awesome. I heard the single “Life is Beautiful” on the radio one morning and was instantly struck by the feel of the song. I found out that it was written by Nikki Sixx, so I thought I would check it out.
I have never really been that big of fan of Motley Crue. Sure I have a couple songs that make their way into a playlist or two, but overall not really impressed. However this album is amazing. I have been listening to it nonstop for about 2 weeks, and everytime it just keeps getting better and better.
The songs range from strait rock, to ballads, to Floydian in style, with vocal parts intermixed throughout creating music that really is deserving of the term soundtrack. Every instrument fits in perfectly and the recording/mixing is awesome.
