I can imagine the band sitting around:

Nikki "Anyone here heard Micks solo album?"

Tommy: "Yeah, its been incredibly well recieved"

Vince "People still hate us for kicking him"

Nikki "We better release some new material to try to distract the fans and take Micks thunder"

Band "Fuck yeah! Fuck Mick!"

Did they do Mick shitty? Absolutely.

With that said, I’m still damn interested to hear what they’ve come up with,  with John 5’s input. Hopefully it’ll be damn good. 🤞

I have heard a small snippet, or at least thats what someone claims it is, and I am divided. Sounded nothing like Crue.

John 5 claims Nikki has shown him songs that sound like demos from the first two albums, but I really doubt anything they record now will sound anything like that. Just wish Sixx would write modern stuff for outside projects like Sixx AM and keep Motley sounding like Motley.

Who really give a shit about poor Mick?

Yeah he was done dirty. Big deal, happens all the time and it happened after they had retired lol

Anyway, will be interesting to see how I hear the album knowing that the vocals are 30+ takes spliced together. lol

Heard the same and agree....snippet sounds like Disturbed or something. 

I just don't get these bands sometimes.  Their popularity was made from rocking, catchy tunes....so just do that lol.  

It was only a snippet of the intro I think so maybe the song will go somewhere....but I doubt it.

Anyone with a brain and common sense.

Ok, so I have no brain or common sense. Nice.

Or, maybe I never met Mick, had no personal relationship with him, and saw him as some dude who played guitar in a band who's songs I liked.

Emotionally investing yourself in the personal lives of people you pay to entertain you must be very draining. Band tried to screw him over, he's fighting back, in the end he can sit on his mountain of cash and relax regardless.

Not gonna lie, I kind of like it. Hardly classic Crue, more like something that would have appeared on the Corabi-fronted self-titled album, but it's not bad for an oldschool band trying a modern hard rock song. That being said, I expect my opinion to be a lonely one, and I understand why fans are dogging on it...

Bit 50/50 on it, myself. I prefer the stuff on Mick's solo album, but it's not a bad song. That kind of solo in a Motley song definitely sticks out... but not in a bad way. It's cool. I dig.

With the obvious Swine references in the video, I wonder if that points to the song being a re-tooled leftover from the Generation Swine sessions? I didn't immediately get that vibe from the song; it kinda sounds like a natural progression from the 3 new tracks on "Red, White & Crue" to me, but that's just me.  As for the song itself, yeah, pretty "meh". Hopefully they've come up with better stuff.

After a few listens my opinion has not changed, but I will say they really did Vince dirty in the mix. Can hardly hear him at points. While yeah his vocals are shit live, on record they do studio magic so not sure why his vocals are buried.

It's got some good parts in my opinion, but seems unfinished needed more work and yes Vince's vocals need a push but hey they are the millionares......

Didn't mind it, it will grow on me, I can tell.

Vince seems to have dropped a register or two for most of the song.

Dare say they want him to be able to sing it live.

Kind of reminded me of when mark slaughter used his lower register, completely different obviously, but same vibe.

    • "Cry Baby Cry" by Aldo Nova  
    • Ah sweet, I've been meaning to look into audio file editors myself since the tracks aren't split correctly on some of the music I purchased digitally. Which editors do you use?
    • I think my favorite song by them is either Love Kills or Ecstasy
    • I know, right? I loved the song until I got to the part with the noise. I guess the noise was supposed to replicate an effect on the record where the noise wouldn't stop until you picked the needle up. While kind of neat on the record, I think the other versions of the album would've been better off without it.
    • Some guy created a video on YouTube saying Chez Kane should be the new singer, but she has shot that down as well.
    • New album 'Kings Of The Revolution' out June 14th.
    • I really should use one of my editing software to have an MP3 without it. I separated the two versions of Gone again by PC69 years ago, but for some reason never edited this. Should be able to cut most of that 3 mins and fade the song out.
    • From Lions Pride Music: Nightfox emerged from the musical landscape of Trondheim, Norway, as a dynamic fusion of synthwave origins morphing seamlessly into the hard-hitting realms of 1980s-inspired hard rock. Founded in 2012, the band initially embarked on a journey rooted in synthwave aesthetics before embracing the electrifying energy of hard rock around 2017.   Driven by a relentless passion for the roaring riffs and blazing guitar solos reminiscent of the golden era of rock, Nightfox found its true voice within the spirited soundscape of 80s rock. What began as a synthwave experiment organically evolved into a full-fledged hard rock powerhouse, propelled by the inherent inclination of their compositions towards rock's anthemic essence.   The band's evolution culminated in the creation of a diverse repertoire of instrumentals, laying the foundation for their debut EP slated for release in 2018. However, personal circumstances necessitated a postponement, prompting a pivotal realization within the band that vocals would elevate their sonic tapestry to new heights.   Between 2019 and 2020, Nightfox embarked on an intensive songwriting and recording spree, breathing life into their compositions through the addition of poignant lyrics and powerful vocals delivered by a seasoned hired singer. As the album "White Cobra" began to take shape, the band opted to release their songs sequentially, with the debut single "Ride the Sky Tonight" igniting a spark that caught the attention of Lions Pride Music record label.   With Lions Pride Music extending a record deal, Nightfox found themselves propelled into the limelight, abandoning their original release strategy in favor of a cohesive album experience. In June 2021, the world bore witness to the electrifying debut of "White Cobra," a sonic odyssey that garnered critical acclaim, widespread airplay, and sold-out pressings within months of its release. Buoyed by the success of their debut, Nightfox set their sights on the creation of their sophomore album, "Chrome Tiger," a testament to their unwavering commitment to the legacy they've forged. Scheduled for a worldwide release on August 30, 2024, "Chrome Tiger" promises to further solidify Nightfox's position as torchbearers of the hard rock resurgence, captivating audiences with their infectious energy and unbridled passion for the genre.   Nighfox is: Vocals: Felipe Del Valle Briceño All Instruments & Programming: Erik Winther
