THIS NEW SIXX A.M. RECORD AIN’T GONNA HURT

110

Sixx A.M.’s new album This is Gonna Hurt is on track to sell about a billion copies, in today’s relative terms, in its first week of release. Better yet, the album is actually good; like it’s predecessor The Heroin Diaries, the new album is full of big hard rock riffs that don’t evoke Theory of a Nickelsuck mook, catchy hooks throughout and James Michael’s clear, strong tenor. In short: good songs. Sixx has been a master of good songwriting throughout his 30-year career.

What, then, prevents Nikki Sixx from writing new albums this good for his day job with Motley Crue? Does anyone actually believe that perennial GN’R optimist / ex-Beautiful Cratures axeman DJ Ashba is the difference-maker? I’ll leave you to ponder that as you listen to “Lies of the Beautiful People” above.

This is Gonna Hurt is available on CD for $10 and MP3 for just $8 at AmazonTHIS NEW SIXX A.M. RECORD AIN’T GONNA HURT.
