Temple Bar

I wanted this one since long, but when I saw it it was too expensive ... :(
I did some research in ebay and finally here it is. Not quite imaginative for the artwork, but there are at lest 3 songs that make this record worth while.
How did i get by without you, cover version ain't no sunshine, which nails it to perfection and price of my tears.
In dreams was a single as well.

As with when you were mine, these 2 records make a nice pack for collectors :-)

8/10 nice to have

Sixx AM: The heroin diaries

She speaks to me in Persian
Tells me that she loves me
The girl with golden eyes
And though I hardly know her
I let her in my veins
And trust her with my life

It is not just this songs that haunts me within this record. But these verses are so touching and so descriptive...

This record was the best by far from 2007 without a doubt. A masterpiece. Nikki Sixx shows all his genius, although with Dj Ashba and James Michael with exceptional partners in this just perfect opus.

And to mention this is my japanese version with the delicious acoustic version of Life is Beautiful and a DVD extra with its video and some interviews :-)

Just open your eyes
And see that life is beautiful.
Will you swear on your life,
That no one will cry at my funeral?

Now it comes the best. you could think the record is good, great ...

Well, the books stands as high as the record. And it is full of stunning artwork. It is very readable and very enjoying. Now i understand the sentence 'party like a man, beast or mötley crüe' ...

As 'the dirt' Nikki is showing all his demons how not to keep a life.

Of course he was a first class asshole but you cant help admiring the immortal tunes he created ...

And if it serves people, only just one not to follow his path the book is well worth.

Absolutely recommended reading.

10/10 classic status both

Saints of Los Angeles

After 'The heroin diaries' i thought ... Will they have enough power to surprise me?

Fortunately the answer is yes, or I would not bought this one :-)

Face in the dirt, saints of LA, chicks = trouble, just anohter psycho, goin' out swinging ... great anthems

It is not easy to reinvent Mötley Crüe, but i consider it as good as Shout at the devil

And the fuckin' question, how these 4 men still alive?

To mention as well my version has an extra DVD with one video and 2 live videos, plus other extras ... It is so simple to sell when you meet client's desires, isnt it?

10/10 Indispensable

When you were mine

Promo copy, autographed apparently by John Waite...
2.99$ belive it or not ... and record is near mint.

I love suicide life, and title song, which the ones i listen most.

I know
Out on the Internet tonight
Deals made
Between the strangers
In green lights
No names
No touch no feel humanity
You and your suicide life

But i have to pay some others listenings since this one is a good record.

8/10 great to have
