Album Review

To call A Public Disservice Announcement an album with mass appeal doesn’t quite do it justice. The new album from Tommy Lee’s newly re-formed Methods of Mayhem isn’t just a record that’s written for the people, it was quite literally written by the people. Using the website The Public Record, an interactive music community site conceived of by producer Scott Humphrey where people can share their song ideas and collaborate with one another online, the band worked with fans to write the album, submitting the basic framework of a song and allowing anyone who wanted to the opportunity to add his or her ideas to the song. After choosing the best ideas from over 10,000 submissions (and giving the fans credit where credit was due), and adding guest spots from artists like Chino Moreno (Deftones), Deryck Whibley (Sum 41), and Chad Kroeger (Nickelback), A Public Disservice Announcement was born. The album spans a vast array of genres, covering rap-rock (“Drunk Uncle Pete”), nu metal ("Fight Song”), and dance-rock (“All I Wanna Do”). It’s good to see Lee changing with the times and branching away from the sound of the platinum-selling Methods of Mayhem, letting fans breathe easily knowing that while the album may sound like many things, it doesn’t sound like rap-metal circa 1999.

good album

i think its a really good album. really different. tommy and the boys do this for themselves. unlike todays artists who compromise art for money, Tommy Lee made this album to let out some steam and do what he wanted!!! Five stars Tommy!! *****

Gets lost towards the end!

The first 8 songs of this new MOM release are really good, and they are successfull at grabbing the listener's attention right away. If you are familiar with Tommy Lee's earlier solo works as well as with MOM's 1999 release, you will notice that many of the tracks off this new release could fit perfectly on the previous stuff. The bonus track "I Really Want You" comes close to sounding like "Metamorphisis", a track from the 1999 self-titled MOM release, though it has a faster tempo. There are even a couple of tracks here that would go nicely on Tommy's first solo album "Never a Dull Moment". Here's my problem with this album though. After these first 8 songs, the album turns a bit too dance/electronica for my taste, and for me, this is where the album loses itself. The songs are ok, if you like that genre. Nevertheless, this is still a decent effort and I would recommend buying it.


Great songs and production! You hear something new with every listen. Really enjoying this album!

Metal combo Methods of Mayhem was formed by frontman Tommy Lee after quitting his drumming duties in Mötley Crüe. Born Thomas Lee Bass on October 3, 1962, in Athens, Greece, he grew up in Los Angeles, co-founding the band Christmas with bassist Nikki Sixx in 1981; with the subsequent additions of guitarist Mick Mars and singer Vince Neil, the group was renamed Mötley Crüe and immediately became a top attraction on the local hard rock scene. Signing to Elektra in 1983, the Crüe emerged as one of the...
