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.

This album is the biggest piece of crap. I just got screwed out of 9.99! Tommy your 15 minutes were over a long time ago. You had people collaborate on the cd from all over the world? How is it with all the help you received that you still managed to put out such a crappy product? You should be ashamed of yourself as an artist and a business man. I wouldn't suggest this to anyone. horrible horrible horrible.


I loved the first album and was hoping for that sound. What you get here is more akin to Tommys self titles material. Popish mellow rock. He shouldn't have used Methods of Mayhem to release this album under because it's totally misleading. There are a few songs that are good but DO NOT download the album before previewing. The standout track is 'Fight Song' it has some of the energy that we know this group for.

Credit is Due

No,this is not a part 2 to the first Methods. But C'mon, let give T-bone and the guys sone props for still jammin. Yeah, there are a couple "radio" jams, but so be it. Let's just be happy that the guys in teh Crue are still releasing music that is listenworthy. But it sure is Mick's time to release something. Tommy, if you are reading this...TELL MICK TO GET ON IT! Have him do whatt Slash did...or an all out guitar asault in you face album! Anyway...get this M.O.M. If you don't like it, well to bad. You got issues that need to be addressed. Rock On!

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...
