There's a bit of contention surrounding the music of Motley Crue. Whether people are willing to admit it or not, the true sounds of hair metal would very well not exist if it weren't for this gang of misfits coming together on the mean streets of LA. However, the Crue have had one of the more interesting career trajectories to say the least.
As opposed to the generic rise to the top story, there have been a good amount of peaks and valleys when it comes to the Crue's catalog. Even if you ask the band themselves, there is a difference between albums where they've nailed it and albums where they were clearly phoning it in. However, there are still some highlights sprinkled across every one of the group's records over the years.
From the punkish roots in the early '80s to being one of the greatest hair metal bands of them all, Motley Crue's output can be a practical gold mine for any hard rock fan to delve into. You might have to sift through a bit of crap from time to time, then again you don't really turn to these guys for anything that's clean and sanitized, do you? From the boring to the badass to the classic, let's see how the back catalog of Sunset's most dangerous group stack up.
I'm just a junkie for all things media. Whether it's music, movies, TV, or just other reviews, I absolutely adore this stuff. But music was my first love, and I love having the opportunity to share it with you good people.
