Well, apparently gone are the days when Motley could write songs on their own. EVERY SONG here has at least two outside writers, and most have three. I went back to my CD collection to compare, and aside from cover songs, THREE total songs out of their original lineup collection (81-89) had outside writers. What happened? Shouldn’t they be better at this by now and need less help writing songs? If you want to buy this album to hear what Nikki, Mick, Tommy and Vince have to say, forget it. But if you want to hear words and chords from James Michael, DJ Ashba and Marti Frederiksen, then yeah this is your CD.
