Editorial Reviews

When Nikki Sixx, James Michael and Dj Ashba get together, something special happens. The last time the supergroup aligned as Sixx:A.M., their first album, 2007 s The Heroin Diaries Soundtrack gave birth to the single, Life Is Beautiful, which became radio s most-played rock song of 2008. They joined the Crüe Fest tour and played for more than half a million rock fans with Michael at the mic, Dj on guitar and Sixx on bass. Recently, they rejoined to create This Is Gonna Hurt, their second album and the second soundtrack to a New York Times best selling book by Nikki Sixx. The 11-track companion CD hits stores May 3rd.

The idea for the album came one day when Michael stopped by Sixx s Funny Farm photo studio. The pair were looking through some of the bassist s recent pictures, which depicted people missing limbs, some who were incredibly overweight and prostitutes who all engage with Nikki for photographs included in the book THIS IS GONNA HURT. Michael and Ashba were struck by Sixx s ability to capture beauty in situations where society judges it as other than. It made them think about their own assumptions and feelings and as they do, the group got together and wrote and recorded songs about the experience.
Michael says, The way Nikki had set the surroundings, you realize the photo subject has such an incredible story to tell. It was very thoughtful and very beautiful and I believe he was taking a picture of the person inside, even though the outside was not what we re used to seeing and certainly didn t fit the average person s concept of what beautiful is. When I listen to the finished record, it s these images I see.

The title came quickly, Michael says of This Is Gonna Hurt. It just seemed so appropriate for what we were going to embark on. It was gonna hurt us to make this record and to discuss these topics. It was a painful experience but also something that ended up being pretty beautiful in the end.
Of course, this journey is one the band has embarked on before. When they made The Heroin Diaries Soundtrack, they presented the horrors of addiction with the caveat that there was always hope. Their song Life Is Beautiful, with its infectious chorus and pleading melody, struck an immediate chord with thousands of people. Almost the minute it went to radio, we were getting Facebook and Myspace messages every single day saying, This song literally saved my life. Thank you so much, Michael says. Or posts like, My husband or my wife was a drug addict, and this song helped me through his or her addiction. To this day we get messages like that.
Other sources for inspiration on the record came from outside of the photography studio as well. The laidback, feel-good rocker It Sure Feels Right hit Nikki one day as he was driving in Los Angeles, the city he s lived his entire adult life in, and realizing that no matter how hard things get things always work out and how happy he is to live there. And the album s final song, Skin, came to Michael one night when he was playing the piano apart from the band. After working on This Is Gonna Hurt for eight months straight, he was overcome by the subject matter he d been singing about and was inspired to write a piano ballad just making sense of it all.
In the end, the group defied all odds and made a second record that built on the sound and positive message of The Heroin Diaries Soundtrack not because the needed to, but because they wanted to.
I think this record ended up affecting all of us on a much deeper level than we thought it would. The album is about being honest with yourself. When you sit down and start really acknowledging who you are and how you behave towards other people and how you judge other people, it s gonna be painful. This is gonna hurt.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome! May 3, 2011
Format:Audio CD
This Is Gonna Hurt is the soundtrack to compliment the book by the same name released about a month ago. First and foremost, this is an AMAZING album. The songs are well written, the lyrics deep and meaningful while also being twisted and dark, and the production is crisp and fresh. Nikki Sixx is the driving creative force behind most of the music, and he dives deep into meandering emotions through epic melodies. The result is an intriguing mix of sounds and passions. Words that come to mind when listening are raw and powerful. His music captures all of his creative qualities: his love, rage, optimism, darkness, and determinism. The title track is a great way to start off the album and features some killer bass playing. "Lies of the Beautiful" has catchy riffs and amazing vocals, and tackles contradictions in society with Sixx urging listeners to look beneath the skin. "Live Forever" delivers with a sonic boom and features an incredible guitar solo. "Sure Feels Right" is a stunning change to the overall sound: the guitar and bass are soothing and the vocals entwine perfectly with the music. "Skin" shows Nikki's deeper side and is a statement about beauty without prejudice. There is not one filler song on the album, and listening closely to the music and lyrics will definitely make you react, which is what I think Nikki had in mind. Highly recommended!!!

It's amazing to me how these three guys get together and their music is so open minded and creative... I am sure there might be other out there that perhaps blow this away but have yet to be discovered.

I think this album is great from top to bottom. But not everyone is going to like it because they will not understand the concept behind SIXXAM the band nor their music... Inspired by things society scoffs at every single day as a collective... It's simple time to forget what we have been conditioned to feel, see and say and just do for oursevles... We can all find beautify in just about everyone and everything if we open our minds up to the reality of truth...

This is as good as the Heroin Diaries. Nikki Sixx is a genius. I recommend this to anyone who likes music written from personal experience and that tells a story.

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT!!! July 1, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
What can I say?? Each man in this band is super-overly-too much-talented. James Michael, Nikki Sixx, DJ Ashba... This combination makes one hell of a band who produces some super quality true music that my ears have missed to hear. Very much looking forward to their 3rd album as well as James's solo album if he ever decides to make one.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Album for the Ages January 9, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
James, Nikki and DJ have created yet another album that will stand the test of time. Every track is a potential single, which means you aren't hearing most of the great music if you only download the singles. Download the whole album for an epic adventure equal to any classic rock & roll album in your player.

5.0 out of 5 stars I wish I didn't.... May 20, 2011
Format:MP3 Music
I wish, so badly, that I didn't like this. This started off as one of those random Amazon suggestions that landed in my queue. Just so I could hate on this with impunity, I decided to give it a listen. The track that I picked was #2 Lies of the Beautiful People. Mistake... It's awesome. I then picked Skin because I was sure it was going to be a pretentious piece of crap with that title. It was great. Powerful, thoughtful, and beautiful.

This is wonderful and even as a cynical dork with all of the requisite angst and pre-built loathing, this is terrific. It's well produced (but not over produced), thought-provoking, and generally enjoyable.

Give it a try. There's nothing wrong with a guilty pleasure now and again.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Album, but.... May 12, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I first met Nikki Sixx in 1984 at the Rainbow in L.A. and continued to run into him at various "hairmetal" haunts for years afterward. He was always pleasant, somewhat quiet and had a great sense of humor and he didn't seem to take himself too seriously. I read the Heroin Diaries and felt truly bad for him; For his pain, his isolation and his loneliness while surrounded by people who either used him or were too self absorbed to care. Fast forward to 2011 and This is Gonna Hurt. I LOVE this album, it is heart pounding, thought provoking and masterfully written (as all of his songs are). However, I hated the book of the same name. I found it to be self-absorbed, preachy and condescending. I HATE that I hated it. I wanted to like it, to be insired. I wanted to root for the Rocker that is Nikki Sixx, but I can't and I don't. I find it impossible to take advice on the drudgery and mundane day to day life from a person who could fly to Prague for a weekend, when the rest of us can barely afford to go to a movie. I absolutely despise Celebrity Soap-boxing; To have to endure the "hightened sense of well being" of people who have more than I will ever have and who use their own sense of power to enlighten the rest of us poor slobs who need rescuing from our own miserable existance. I don't need to be rescued by someone who, in an hour can make more than I make in a year. I understand that Nikki has come to terms with who he is and where he came from, but I don't understand how he expects others to relate to him when he continually talks about photographing the obscure, derelict people of this world with a $1500 camera.
