Motley Crue members Tommy Lee, Vince Neil and Nikki Sixx were saying today how much they hated the Theatre of Pain album, and that it was trash. Vince Meal was shocked that it went double platinum, Lee said he hadn't even heard the album yet, and Nikki SIxx said it was complete rubbish.

I actually think it's one of their better albums, in fact it's better than everything apart from Shout at the Devil for me.

What do you think? Is Theatre of Pain a load of rubbish or not?

No way is it better than TFFL.

Home Sweet Home is a bona fide hit though. Maybe Tommy should’ve written the songs!
I also like Save Our Souls, Louder Than Hell, City Boy Blues and Raise Your Hands to Rock.

Louder than Hell is classic Crue.

I love the record!  But get rid of the cover "Smokin' In The Boys Room!"

I love "Girls Girls Girls!"  Couldn't they write one more killer song rather than throw "Jailhouse Rock" on at the end.  WEAK!

Perfect take.

It's a bona fide stinker. If Milli Vanilli tried to make a metal album, Feelgood would be the result. Eff Bob Rock.

Maybe it's the production? I don't know. I didn't really get into the band until I saw them live in 1984 and then I went and re-listened to Shout at the Devil and liked it more.

Finally some of the bands realised how bad he was making them sound and took him for a one way trip to the desert.

I love the rawness of TFFL, especially the Leathur Records version. It's the epitome of underground 80s US metal. A true milestone.

According to wiki he's still producing bands like Bush and Bryan Adams and Ritchie Sambora and he apparently did something with Motley Crue's The Dirt.

He's still around producing. I've not heard much about him though since the 90's.
