This CD just blew me away; and does every time I listen.
M. Moore
If you have read the book "The Heroin Diaries," listening to the album really puts Nikki's story to music.

Music that really means something and you never get tired of listen to it over and over.

What we have here is quite possibly the best pure rock album release in years. I know that when reading CD reviews you often hear statements like that, but in the case of this CD it just so happens to be true. Simply put, this CD is phenomenal, lyrically and musically, and is an accomplishment that Nikki should be very proud of. While Queensr˙che's 'Operation Mindcrime' is widely regarded as the best concept rock album of all time, I personally find this non-fiction concept album to be a bit more cohesive and enjoyable to listen to, and certainly worthy of consideration for that title. Jedd Beaudoin who wrote the Amazon Editorial Review above is way off the mark in every single aspect of his review, and absolutely and completely missed the point of this album. In a fair and accurate nutshell his review says that he does not like this CD because it does not sound like Mötley Crüe, and it is not upbeat enough. In turn I will put my comments about his review for this CD in a fair and accurate nutshell; what a f***ing feeble-minded douchebag, how did this dolt get a job reviewing CD's, he needs to go and do something he's good at.

With this CD, Nikki Sixx, the undeniable heart and soul of Mötley Crüe, has released an album that clearly demonstrates why Mötley Crüe attained the success they did in the 80's and 90's. The success attained was certainly not because of Vince Neil's singing, Mick Mars' guitar playing, or even Tommy Lee's incredible drumming, NO, it was because of Nikki Sixx's songwriting, period. You've got to love the tortured artist, they are almost without exception the most inspired, creative and brilliant songwriters.

The latest offering from Nikki Sixx's penchant for doing small solo projects is a testament to not only his talent as a songwriter, but also his range as a musician. That's not to discount the efforts of guitarist DJ Ashba and singer James Michael (who also mixed the songs). Nikki has stated explicitly in interviews that this CD was a collaborative effort, and the three men together have put together a great album. The disc, which is unique for being the first soundtrack for a book I have ever heard of, touts 13 innovative and wonderfully arranged and performed tracks.

The first, seventh and last tracks are spoken entries from what we can assume will be from the book (with accompanying instrumentals). Judging from the scanned pages included as a CD extra (put this thing in your computer, people!), "X-Mas in Hell" has been worded slightly differently to make it more sensical out of the book's context. Its accompanying rock rendition of "Carol of the Bells" is appropriate and well done. "Intermission" with its accompanying music seems somewhat inspired by circus music (and vaguely reminds of Motley Crue's recent Carnival of Sins tour, but maybe that's just me). "Life After Death," wraps up the overall message (drugs can ruin you, but there is always a chance for redemption if you survive) nicely.

Many of the other songs have this element of spoken word as well. Nikki doesn't sing, so getting to hear his voice is always like a bonus for me, and he's all over this CD. We hear him to some degree on just about every track, either at the beginning, like with the previously mentioned tracks, or at the end, like in "Girl With Golden Eyes," where he reads through the first ten days of his detox with increasing fervor (fantastically, I might add).

This soundtrack is absolutely incredible. It has a very theatrical sound which puts the listener completely in tune with Nikki's addiction and diary thoughts. Extremely powerful and moving. I've owned the CD for 8 hours now and have already listened to it several times. Once you begin with Track #1, you need to complete the journey all the way through Track 13. Now that I've heard the soundtrack, I can't wait for the book to arrive next month.

I'll begin with an admission that I was looking forward to the book for which this CD serves as the soundtrack, more than this CD. Nikki's previous "solo" excursions haven't impressed me all that much. I've always considered Nikki Sixx to be a "borderline lyrical genius". Problem was he was always writing lyrics about "nothing". He was shackled by the hair/glam metal boundaries of Motley Crue. This release Changes EVERYTHING !!!!
After hearing this CD, I'd prefer Sixx to concentrate on a solo career and leave little girl voiced Vince Neil behind. This is an amazing recording. The lyrics, orchestration, vocals, the musical performances- everything is top notch. This recording drips emotion and passion!!
Along with the incredible arrangements,every song has a hook which will have you singing along by the 2nd time you've played it. For me, the songs are playing over and over in my head already- and I LOVE IT!
I love hard rock/heavy metal. What makes it even better for me is when the lyrics tell a story-so naturally I am a big fan of concept albums.
This one ranks right up there with the greatest I have ever heard.
Queensryche's OPERATION MINDCRIME and PROMISED LAND come to mind as do W.A.S.P.'s THE CRIMSON IDOL and THE NEON GOD, parts 1 and 2 as well as Steve Vai's SEX AND RELIGION.
If you like your music well crafted and beautifully performed this CD is for you. Don't expect Dr. Feelgood, but simply open your ears and your mind, and let Nikki take you on an incredible musical and personal journey. I cannot express how grateful I am that Heroin never took Nikki's life. If it had, I would have suffered by never having heard this CD...
This recording is, in every sense of the word, a MASTERPIECE !!
Thank you Nikki Sixx for an awesome CD !!!!!
