Heroin Diaries Soundtrack (Edited)

Now, this is an interesting album! Designed as a companion piece to Motley Crue bassist/songwriter Nikki Sixx's autobiography, The Heroin Diaries Soundtrack -- based on journals he kept during the peak of his drug abuse in the '80s, now supplemented by commentary by his friends and the man himself -- is a genuinely odd and oddly moving record, a weird pileup of pained spoken word diary entries, operatic metal, L.A. sleaze, grimy electro-industrial beats, the stray power ballad, and circus music, all delivered by Sixx's new band, Sixx: A.M., which is fronted by vocalist James Michael, who also produced and wrote the album with Sixx. Musically, this album exists out of time -- it certainly doesn't sound like a throwback to the Crue and, despite the echoes of She Wants Revenge on "Pray for Me," it doesn't sound modern, either. In that sense, The Heroin Diaries Soundtrack is the product of a true, distinctive artistic vision -- one that might not be coherent, but it's certainly compelling, both in its open-wound honesty and often baffling mash-ups of styles. Even if Sixx: A.M. dabble in modern textures here, this never sounds like a desperate attempt to sound modern, since everything in this music is designed to mirror Sixx's voyage into heroin hell. It's a concept album and, as such, it plays as an extended suite instead of a collection of songs, but that's the appeal of this record: it's an art rock confessional, quite unlike anything Sixx -- or anyone else, for that matter -- has done before. Which means that even if The Heroin Diaries Soundtrack isn't quite to your specific tastes -- it might be too gloomy for Crue fans -- it nevertheless is hard not to admire the risks Nikki Sixx takes on this record, or the strange success he achieves here, either. [The Heroin Diaries Soundtrack was also made available in a "clean" version with all profanities removed.] ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, All Music Guide

Found this to be quite the eye-opening experience. Quite an amazing touch Nikki Sixx has to take his lows in life, and death, and put them to music is such a poetic way. The music is not the "typical" Motley Crue sound, but very good modern rock sounding with a bit of an edge at times. The lyrics are something to listen to as well as the lead vocalist having a great voice. I was taking a chance on this product, and am not disappointed one bit. I have been listening to it off and on (mostly on) for the past 2 weeks.

This soundtrack is fitting as a companion to the book. Although now you wish for Nikki to move on and give us some more upbeat and rocking tunes, with his new outfit. You have exercised your demons, now let us get down to some fun and rocking times.

Nikki, James and D.J. did an amazing job with the writing of this cd from beginning to end. I would highly recommend this disc and also the book because the two go hand in hand.

This album will not be for everyone but I absolutely love it! The writting, vocals and music are not what I expected from this band.
