SIXX A.M. This is Gonna Hurt

  • Print

(Universal)

THE Sixx A.M. debut, The Heroin Diaries, was a 2007 soundtrack to the harrowing journals of Mötley Crüe bassist Nikki Sixx that managed to capture the dizzying highs and lows of the book while showcasing a different side of the hair-metal star with a wide range of styles ranging from operatic soundscapes to spoken-word pieces.

This is Gonna Hurt follows the same soundtrack formula, with the album -- featuring vocalist James Michael and guitarist DJ Ashba (Guns N' Roses) -- serving as the musical companion for a photo/journal book. There isn't the same musical inventiveness and sense of exploration that characterized the debut, but features two of the best hard-rock songs Sixx has written in years: the anthem Live Forever and arena rocker Lies of the Beautiful People, which help balance out blander fare like the title track and Help is on the Way.

Overall, This is Gonna Hurt is pretty painless. 'Ö'Ö'Ö
