Dr. Feelgood [Crücial Crüe Edition]

by: Mötley Crüe

Mötley Crüe's albums were a lot like episodes of Married with Children in the sense that they may not be great works of art but can be darn entertaining. With Bob Rock serving as producer, the L.A. headbangers savor the joys of trashy, unapologetically decadent fun on Dr. Feelgood -- an album that makes no pretense at being anything else. While nothing here is quite as commanding as "Shout at the Devil," "Wild Side," or "Live Wire," such hook-oriented MTV smashes as "Kickstart My Heart," the amusing "Don't Go Away Mad (Just Go Away)," and the title song are infectious and hard to resist, and helped make this the best-selling Mötley Crüe album ever, as well as providing their first Top Ten singles. Unfortunately, the album would be lead singer Vince Neil's last album with the band. Neil's departure -- and pop-metal's decline in popularity in the mid-'90s -- proved to be severe blows to Mötley Crüe. [In 2008, a Crücial Crüe Edition was released.] ~ Alex Henderson
