      More of what Mötley Crüe does best.

      "Theatre of Pain" is the 3rd studio album by American glam rockers, Mötley Crüe. It was released in 1985 on Elektra Records and produced by Tom Werman. The line-up for the album was Vince Neil (vocals), Mick Mars (guitar), Nikki Sixx (bass) and Tommy Lee (drums). Mötley Crüe do it again, showing us just how bad boys like to party. Glam rock is all about having fun and these guys are the kings of naughty fun. "City Boy Blues" is by far one of the best songs Mötley Crüe has ever performed. With a mid tempo, heavy bluesy feel, it has just a touch of glam thrown in giving it a unique sound. Tommy Lee's drumming, along with some incredible guitar solos, makes it a standout song. The cover version of Brownsville Station's "Smokin' in the Boys Room" is better than the original. While it isn't a song that was designed to be heavy, Mötley Crüe added just the right touch of heaviness to improve on it without going overboard. This version has the feel of bad boys trying to avoid getting in trouble while breaking rules at school, while the original feels like good kids who dream of being bad but are afraid to try. Power Ballad "Home Sweet Home" begins with a piano intro, before being joined by guitar and passionate vocals. The impressive blend of piano and guitar add just the right background for the lyrics. While not my favourite Mötley Crüe album, some of my favourite Crüe tracks are on here. It is a great album, overall, but not quite up to the effort put into their first two. That is not to say it is bad. It is quite good, in fact, because it is still an impressive collection of songs, and I would recommend it to any rock fan. 1. City Boy Blues 2. Smokin' in the Boys Room 3. Louder Than Hell 4. Keep Your Eye on the Money 5. Home Sweet Home 6. Tonight (We Need a Lover) 7. Use it or Lose It 8. Save Our Souls 9. Raise Your Hands to Rock 10. Fight For Your Rights My rating: 8/10
