Sound — 9
On the previous record, Theater Of Pain, the Crue were pumping out bluesy and glam songs. On this record they ditched the previous sound almost completely. This record has a grittier, more-street sound, and as odd as it sounds, it fairs very well. With catchy riffs (title track, All In The Name Of, Dancing On Glass) and intimate lyrics (Without You, Nona), this record proves that their peak was nearing.

Nikki Sixx truly outdid himself on this record. These lyrics are some of his best. It's also the usual Crue line-up: Raunchy-Girls, Girls, Girls, Rockin' - All In The Name Of, Serious-Nona, Without You, it's your usual Crue kicked up a notch from top.
Overall Impression — 10
GGG has some great bonus tracks in its remastering. The Instrumental versions, an earnest cover of Elvis Presley's Jailhouse Rock (Live), and another great live track in Moscow-the first time the band played sober. Aside from the bonus tracks the CD also includes the censored, yet still raunchy, Girls, Girls, Girls video. In a sentence: The Crue were hitting it strong, but really preparing for the greatest acheivement of their musical career, Dr. Feelgood.
