Album 365: Day 146 - Motley Crue - Dr. Feelgood

Motley Crue
Dr. Feelgood

Favorite tracks: Dr. Feelgood, Kickstart My Heart, Don't Go Away Mad (Just Go Away)
Sleeper tracks: Slice of Your Pie, Sticky Sweet

I wasn't the biggest Crue fan growing up.  They were too popular for me and while I liked some of the songs, I didn't feel the need to get any of the records.

I started to buy the albums in the early 2000s.  Once I realized how good some of the records sounded and how good some of the songwriting was, I made it a point to get the whole catalog.

This album sounds huge thanks to Bob Rock (produced Metallica's 'Black Album' after Lars heard the sound of Dr. Feelgood).  There's a lot of cool guitar work going on.  I didn't like all the horns and layered backup vocals (the list of guest singers rangers from Bryan Adams to members of Cheap Trick to Steven Tyler) but I get what they were trying to do.  Tommy's drumming is pretty awesome.
