The dark side and light side rolled into one

"Girls Girls Girls (1987) is one fun album. The members of the Crue were in their most decadent period in their history at the time this album was being recorded. The Crue were so drugged out that they actually wrote some of the songs in the recording studio because they had very little material to bring to the studio when it was time to record a new album. Seven months after this album was released, Nikki Sixx overdosed on heroin and actually died, but was revived. Their tour was cancelled as a result. So, this album marked a low point for the band physically and mentally, but the music is great. I rank this my fifth favorite Crue album behind Shout At The Devil (1983), Theatre Of Pain (1985), Too Fast For Love (1981/1982), and Saints Of Los Angeles (2008). Now about the album...
Critics blasted the Crue for taking off their makeup and costumes in favor of leather and motorcycles. They thought it would hurt Motley Crue's image in their fans' eyes. Don't listen to the critics. They're wrong most of the time. Fans love the album and its theme. The best songs on this album are the title track, Wild Side, Dancing On Glass, Five Years Dead, Sumthin' For Nuthin', and Bad Boy Boogie. This album is a mixture of the lighter side and the darker side. It's an album that's the result of heavy drug use and it shows in the lyrics. It's different from Dr. Feelgood, which is the lighter side exclusively.
If you want one of the Crue's best albums, get this one. The music has some blues influence to it. I like the tone of Mick Mars' guitar. It's mildly similar to Shout At The Devil.
I highly recommend this album."
