iTunes Editors’ Notes

There is a strong case to be made for Too Fast For Love as Motley’s Crue’s best album. Recorded just months after the classic Crue lineup coalesced, it captures the band in its hungriest pre-fame form. Too Fast For Love is rooted in the Seventies hard rock and punk on which these Calfornia youngsters were reared. “Take Me To the Top,” “On With the Show,” and “Tonight” put the band’s under-acknowledged debt to Cheap Trick on full display (Robin Zander, in particular, is Vince Neil’s most blatant role model), while “Public Enemy #1,” “Starry Eyes,” and “Merry-Go-Round” all owe something to the hard rock trinity of Aerosmith, Alice Cooper, and Kiss. Of course, there were also more geographically-specific influences. The Runaways and Van Halen were the Los Angeles party bands that preceded Motley Crue, and their influence is all over the blitzkrieg attack of “Live Wire” and the sugary stomp of “Toast of the Town.” Originally released in an awesomely raw mix by Michael Wagener, Elektra eventually reissued Too Fast For Love in a toned-down remixed version; this 1999 edition happily restores the album to its original state. Piercing, fierce, and fun, the album still strikes like a bolt of lightning twenty-five years after its creation.

Customer Reviews

My second favorite Motley Crue album

This is the most overlooked album, and one of my favorite. Here is a list of my top 5 favorite songs on the album. Starry Eyes - Me and my dad sit in the car and play the beginning to this song 20 times before we hear the rest of it. Idk, why, but we love the beginning drum beat. The rest of the song is awesome, and this is where Tommy really shines. Really Awesome. 11/10 Too Fast For Love - Really different from alot of Motley Crue stuff, but I love it! Classic guitar from good ol' Mick Mars. Really good vocals too. 10/10 Peice of Your Action - I have loved this song since I was a kid, brings back memories of my dad blasting it in the car, and me screaming for him to turn it down...good times...9/10 Live Wire - Best opening for an album...period. Really gets your blood pumping. 9/10 On With the Show - My dad's favorite on the album. Pretty good too. Some of their softer stuff. Really catchy. 8.5/10 So get this album, but get it after you get Theatre of Pain!

true raw crue

this album is awsome becuz it shows the real style of motley crue. becuz when they came out with shout at the devil they made their sound heavier and when they came out with theater of pain it had to much of a lighter metal sound. and also for this album crue produced it by them selves they didnt have a producer to tell them to slow it down or speed it up. it came out the way they wanted it and how they made it

YES, YES, YES!!

The Crue is back now I have to buy all of it and then hopefully iTunes has returned some of the other great 80's and early 90's metal bands WTG iTunes!!

Biography

Formed: 1980 in Los Angeles, CA

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

Mötley Crüe were undeniably one of the most popular hard rock/pop-metal acts of the 1980s. Combining the theatrics and glam of Kiss with the hard power pop hooks of Cheap Trick, the Crüe out-partied, out-rocked, and outsold most of their competition. The band even managed to hit the pop chart with frequency with hits like "Dr. Feelgood" and "Without You." The combination of larger-than-life personalities that made up the L.A. band was too volatile to remain stable; singer Vince Neil and drummer Tommy...
