Something from the New York Dolls, a bit of the more groovy and dirty part of the punk rock scene, a big dose of lust for fast women and fast cars and tones of alcohol, drugs and rock n' roll extravaganza and what you get is… Motley Crue of course! And back in 1982 they gave birth to glam/sleaze hard rock with their ultra dirty and full of power and groove sound with "Too Fast For Love".

Years passed by and they became a really successful band in the USA especially, but worldwide as well. 1985 arrived and "Theatre Of Pain" came out in the market, but it was a weak album compared to its dynamite predecessor "Shout At The Devil", so the Motleys really needed an album that would make them rise again. And "Girls Girls Girls" was definitely the album they needed.

1987 and the world of glam/sleaze starts boiling once again, it's party time, Motley Crue time, and "Girls Girls Girls" is out there to roll the universe. From the very first song, "Wild Side", with the dirty guitar riffing, you start losing yourself in the "wild side", there where only "girls girls girls" exist and you find yourself "dancing on glass" and the dance goes on!

The low profile, when the time comes to compare him to the rest three of the band, Mick Mars rolls all the way and his ultra dirty guitar riffing makes the atmosphere really… hot! The one great hard rock riff comes right after the other and you just keep on rolling along with the band, being unable to stop. The rhythm section, with Tommy Lee on the drums and Nikki Sixx (hell yeah!) on the bass lines, makes the overall dirty feeling more vivid with its groove. The drumming has that "(bad boy) boogie" sound that makes the songs more… alive and the bass lines have that "kickstart my heat" pulse that paces with the drumming in an exceptional way. We talked about the low profile guy, the two bad-ass lovers and what remains…? The punk of the band, Vince Neil, the man behind the microphone giving life to the "fast women and fast cars" lyrics in the most ideal way with his street-oriented/sleazy/dirty accent.

"Girls Girls Girls is a masterpiece and an album Motley Crue needed back in 1987 in order to reclaim the throne of glam rock and pave the way for "Dr. Feelgood"! Highlights of the album are definitely the dirty and rolling-all-the-way "All In The Name Of…" and "Girls Girls Girls", the beautiful ballad "You're All I Need" (because every glam band has to offer and a bit of… emotion) and the groovy "Wild Side" and "Bad Boy Boogie".

If you wanna roll you know what to do. No, don't dye your hair blond, neither put on the tight jeans nor the feminine boots and the purple/pink/red colors, just buy Motley Crue and you'll feel fine!

This album has 2 great songs ("wild side" and girls, girls, girls") the rest is garbage in my opinion. the crue's first 2 albums are fantastic.....after that came a lot of filler with one or 2 songs that really kicked.

The guitar tone on this album was just killer! After the flat tone on Theatre of Pain the Crue were back in form, and while I don't think this is a masterpiece like the review, this has to be their coolest sounding disc. All I have to do is listen to this I feel like I am inside a sleazy strip bar in L.A. in 1987! I'll never tire of classic Crue.

A 9.0 is a bit much dude, but I admit that the two first tracks are incredibly fun

A few other good songs too, but imo it's not that a convincing album

I agree that 9 is too high, "9" means excellent which the album is not. It's good, catchy, enjoyable, that's all.
