One of my all time favorites!

"I remember an interview with Tracii Guns a few years back, he was asked about writing a good song and he said "I could write 'Let It Be' and it wouldn't matter, no one is listening."
There is a lot of truth in those words, so many great songs, for whatever reason, just never get heard, even though millions may like them. Timing and marketing and image mean more than great songwriting.
Whipped is filled with awesome songs, but it seems the world could care less. In 1992, no one wanted a Faster Pussycat album, just as they probably don't want it now. It doesn't fit with reality T.V., trailor park trash bimbos, gangsta thugs etc.
I will tell you, this is an awesome ROCK and ROLL album, that you can probably get very cheap. It is smart and funny and sleazy. In fact it is probably too intelligent for most people, but it is still fun and doesn't sound dated or cliche.
My favorite lyric is from "Out with a bang." "Baby, I'm not your wallflower, ain't no puppet, ain't no saint, call me old fashioned but I'll do ya on the first date." Only way Out is also a simply awesome song.
I highly recommend this CD!!!"
Band reaches their creative peak, but grunge killed them

"Fine release from one of the best "hair" metal bands, plenty of diversity check out "Loose Booty", "Big Dictionary", "Nonstop To Nowhere", "Cat Bash", & "Mr. Lovedog"(ode to Mother Love Bone's Andrew Wood), along with rokers "Jack The Bastard" & "Body Theif". Never appreciated in their time and probably even less now. Along with Skid Row and to a lesser extent LA Guns they were killed off when the grunde fad swept the nation but dated beautifully. They never put out a bad album in their prime and this is a dam good one."
