CD Review: Motley Crue “The Saints of Los Angeles”…

The boys in the Crue are back! Yes, the original members of the popular hairmetal band Motley Crue have a new album out titled “The Saints of Los Angeles”. The band still have the same lineup; Vince Neil, Mick Mars, Nikki Sixx, and Tommy Lee. This is the band’s first studio album in 8 years since 2000’s “The New Tattoo”.

I listened to this album quite several times actually and can not stop listening to it. It is actually a really good album and very well done. Probably the best I’ve heard from the boys in years. The album starts off with an intro that says “Welcome to Los Angeles”. The songs on the disc are actually catchy, Tommy Lee’s drumming skills is actually pretty tight. Vince’s vocals are actually fun to listen to but what caught my attention on the disc the most is the guitar playing of Mick Mars. He’s created some pretty cool kick ass riffs and great guitar solos.

The album really does bring back old school Crue back in the 80’s. It is really a fun album, I liked it a lot. Great job guys.

My favorite tracks: “Down at the Whisky”, “Saints of Los Angeles” (album title track), “The Animal In Me”, “Just Another Psycho”, and “White Trash Circus”.

Score for Motley Crue’s “The Saint of Los Angeles” **** (4 stars as in excellent)
