I found that the Crue had their own style and sound that was a breath of fresh air in the mainly synth-pop early 80's. Rock n' roll was still ALIVE after all!
This CD is, from start to finish, THE best rocking Motley Crue ever gave us. "Too Fast For Love" was a primer and they hit their stride on "Shout At The Devil." EVERY song is excellent and it's non-stop nail biting rock all the way. They do mix it up a biy though. "God Bless The Children Of The Beast" is a suprisingly piece that (like KISS' "Beth") shows a dimension to the band that, on the surface, you would never guess was there.
"Too Young To Fall In Love" was perfect for the MTV crowd, and "Red Hot" and "Knock 'Em Dead Kid" was there for the true headbangers. The Crue even took a crack at The Beatles 'White Album' classic, "Helter Skelter," put their own mark on it and came up with a gem. Vince Neil is no Paul McCartney in the vocal department, but his voice works for the band regardless.
After seeing Motley Crue live in Pittsburgh in 1984 I was primed to have a new album. They came back in '85 with "Theatre Of Pain," but I found that one a bit "too MTV" - with the edge of "Shout" clearly tamed down. "Dr.Read more ›
"Shout At The Devil" is a consistent, raw, heavy but catchy album that's as dark as it was empowering and inspirational for what would become pop metal in the late 80's. I still have the original vinyl release with the Pentagram on the front, before it was banned and replaced.
Sure in 1983 looking like Alice Cooper or Kiss was still ok, but ended soon after, and I wish they would've kept their dark, gritty edge, but they were always a bunch of egotistic rock star jerks, and that was never bound to happen for fans who were with them "In The Beginning." (pun intended)
My favorite Crue song will probably always be "Knock 'em Dead Kid," and the rest of the album is quality from start to finish - something non-existent on any other Crue album, except for the radio hits of Dr. Feelgood.
With two solid MTV hit singles, "Too Young Too Fall In Love," and "Looks That Kill," Shout has always been an underrated album. Only it and "Dr. Feelgood" are complete albums, and I am not a big fan of the latter and never was.Read more ›
THE DISC: 17 total tracks (16 music tracks, 1 bonus video "Looks That Kill"). The original 11 songs, plus 5 unreleased demos (3 songs from the album, and two new songs). All together, clocks in at approximately 60 minutes. Originally released on Elecktra Records label; digitally remastered and re-released on Hip-O Records.
COMMENTS: "Shout At The Devil" (1983) was my first real introduction to Motley Crue. When their debut ("Too Fast For Love") hit the street 2 years earlier, I thought it was good in a very raw sense... but it didn't hit me like "Shout" did. Where "Too Fast" was all over the place (coarse, unrefined, perhaps even immature), "Shout" was the slick polar opposite... cultivated, well written, professional, polished; a full-blown ripe and ready rock band ready to take on the world. As good as the hits were ("Looks That Kill", "Too Young To Fall In Love" and even briefly the remake of the Beatles' "Helter Skelter" hitting the FM airwaves), the deeper album cuts totally rocked... "Red Hot", Ten Seconds To Love", "Bastard", "Knock 'Em Dead Kid" and the title track were all classics in my book. The bonus cuts here are very worthy. It's great hearing alternate takes on such classic material. The two new songs are equally good - especially since I had never heard them before (I must admit, when I first picked up the new CD, I was hoping "Hotter Than Hell" was a remake of the old Kiss tune... but it's not). The Crue has numerous compilations ("Red, White & Crue" easily being the best) and "Shout At The Devil" is well represented on each. Some fans will say 1989's "Dr. Feelgood" is the Crue's best album. I agree that "Dr. Feelgood" was their most commercially successful release (4 major hits), but not the band's most rock solid collective effort. If you want one studio album from the Crue, it has to be this one. Great disc.

One of my favorite albums from the Crue. This was ahead of it's time and just kicks ass through and through. Long Live the F'N Crue...!Published 1 month ago by God-Of-Lyf
The first album where the Crue sounded like the Crue. Of the classic albums, this is probably second best behind Dr. Feelgood. Mick's tone cuts like a knife.Published 4 months ago by Big JT
