    One of the most underrated rock records of all time.

    I really enjoyed the interview, although I think I’m in the major minority who just doesn’t care for John Corabi’s voice. He can sing, I can’t deny that fact, I just dislike the sound of his voice, don’t care for him in The Scream, Union & certainly not Motley Crue. I almost feel bad about feeling that way, because he always comes off as a really nice, down to earth dude in any interview I’ve heard with him, sorry, John.

    Personally, Motley is one of those groups that just needed to have the four original guys, any time they took out a member it just never felt/ sounded right.

    A good album.

    Not a good Motley Crue album.
