All I ever wanted to do is write rock reviews! But I can’t anymore, because I’ve been “Disqualified Forever” by “WASPfan”…at least as far as Motley Crue goes. This is a real shame since I haven’t reviewed Dr. Feelgood yet. I guess now I never will?
What got me disqualified? My review of Motley Crue’s awesome 1994 album with John Corabi. WASPfan prefers Vince Neil’s solo debut Exposed, which is fine since it’s also a great album. My scores for both are only half a star apart. Read on!
You have got to be kidding me! Vince Neil/Exposed was a much better album than Motley Crue/Motley Crue. I’ve owned this album for 20 years and have yet to be able to get through it in one listen. Is there some good music, yes. But you can almost hear the impersonation of Vince Neil the way certain songs are sung.
Dude, Vince Neil couldn’t sing the way Corabi sings on Motley Crue if he had a voice transplant. There is simply no comparison between the two singers, at all. Apples and oranges!
I have always thought the Crue should re-record this with Vince on vocals, just to show people what could have been. Motley Crue thought they could pull a Van Halen, and the fact is they couldn’t. They got a singer who’s defining moment in Metal History will be failing at replacing Vince Neil, and this comes from someone who owned, and loved, The Scream album before Corabi ever joined the Crue.
Hey man, be nice. Corabi was also in Ratt.
If Corabi had “it” he wouldn’t be on tour right now with the gimic [sic] of singing the Motley Crue/Motley Crue album from start to finish. He’d be headlining in his own band, singing his own songs. This album, while good musically, barely rates 3 out of 5 stars. To put Theatre of Pain and Girls, Girls, Girls below this album should disqualify your opinion on all things Motley now and forever.
Now that I have been disqualified, I plan on taking up a new hobby. Visit me here for all the latest on nude cycling, coming soon!
