Staff review by

You know, when you already have 4 succesful releases it's difficult to keep it up for the fifth time in a row. Well, Motley Crue managed to keep it up in the most appropriate way, offering to the glam world another masterpiece after the fabulous "Girls Girls Girls", the renowned "Dr. Feelgood".

Mötley Crüe is one of the most or perhaps the most notorious band in the history of rock n' roll. When it comes to sex, drugs and rock n' roll Mötley Crüe are way up there in the premier league. They didn't so much write the book on archetypal bad-boy behaviour (or much less even read it!). What they did was chainsawing it in half and torching it with napalm. In their time they nearly did it all: marrying Playboy centrefolds, nearly killing themselves and those around them, and allegedly taking every kind of narcotics known to man. They are the gods of that self-destruct rockstar lifestyle and lived it throughout the 80's and into the 90's. Dr. Feelgood was the high point in the CV of this highly volatile band and was the manifestation and embodiment of all that hedonism and decadence that characterized the 80's.

Amazingly hit n miss. Some of it is awesome and other bits are just embarrassing ala Rattlesnake Shake and a lot of it just bland. Certainly got nothing on G N R or Skid Row's later efforts.

Yeah, some average stuff here but at least it does have some killer in the form of "Kickstart My Heart" and the very decent "Dr. Feelgood". I love the production of the album as well (Bob Rock, I think). Agree that not the calibre of Gunners or Skid Row.

It is indeed Bob Rock that did the production. Metallica liked the production of Dr. Feelgood so much that wanted Bob Rock to do their self-titled for them so they could break it big time.

I would say, financially, that was the best decision Metallica ever made.

  I like Rattlesnake Shake. That swing piano is funky.

If there's any song that shouldn't be on here, it's that awful ballad Don't Go Away Mad. Everything else on here, though, is adequate, if standard for glam metal. Best MC album will always be Shout At The Devil.
