Sleaze Roxx stated the following in its review today of Girls, Girls, Girls: “Mötley Crüe in 1987 were suffering from the album/tour/album cycle. Something had to give. Let’s dissect just what the hell went haywire in the Crüe camp… Nikki Sixx (bass and main songwriter), Vince Neil (when he could sing), Tommy Lee (drums) and Mick Mars (guitar) are the culprits here… For every Mötley Crüe classic album that I would consider top notch rock (Too Fast For Love and Mötley Crüe with John Corabi), there are some duds (Theatre Of Pain and Girls, Girls, Girls).’
Sleaze Roxx concluded in its review: “In conclusion, Sixx Sixx Sixx and his bag of Trix fooled a young me and you know what, in my rock circles, no one ever really talked about this album. What people did talk about was the live show with Lee going 360 in his drum cage and the cool looking strip club stage. That’s what people talked about and when I went to see the Crüe on the Feelgood tour (1990), only “Girls Girls Girls” and “Wildside” were played and that pretty much tells the tale of said record. Even Sixx, Lee, sleazy V and Mick M even knew the deal! I can say what I want but bands like Iron Maiden, Def Leppard, Judas Priest and Mötley Crüe are firmly implanted in my DNA so I guess Sixx is having the last laugh after all… Maybe three songs I dig here, four tunes tops! And I bought the damn thing twice??! I think I should be committed!”
In a Sleaze Roxx survey on what is the readers’ favorite Mötley Crüe album, Girls, Girls, Girls finished at #4. Sleaze Roxx stated in that regard: “After doing a 180 degree turn from Shout At The Devil‘s chains and pentagram to Theatre Of Pain‘s ultra glam look, Mötley Crüe reinvented themselves once again by embracing their love of hard living, strip bars and bikes to recreate their “new” image to coincide with their latest offering Girls, Girls, Girls in 1987. The album produced two of Mötley Crüe‘s most identifiable, recognizable and memorable songs — “Wild Side” and “Girls, Girls, Girls” — which also remained mainstays in the group’s live shows all the way to the end. Girls, Girls, Girls was the third album in a row for Mötley Crüe to go quadruple platinum in the US cementing the group as one of the most consistent and successful group of the ’80s era in terms of record sales. Interestingly, Girls, Girls, Girls only received 1% of votes as the best Mötley Crüe album. Sixty percent of the votes that Girls, Girls, Girls received in this survey were for the # 4 or 5 position.”
