"Dr. Feelgood" belongs in the same category as AC/DC's "Back in Black". It's commercially appealing, yet tough enough and unique enough to stand out as a real gem in the metal band genre. Motley Crue were at their best on this album. Every song here is excellent. The title track and "Kickstart My Heart" were clearly two of the best metal songs made to date. "Don't Go Away Mad (Just Go Away) is a a hard-edged, melodic anthem which any modern rock band would be proud to have written. The Crue danced that fine line of not being too glam and not being too pop with just the right amount of excessive metal injected in to the music. This is a commercial masterpiece. A notable thing about this album is that it was the first album the Crue did after they sobered up. Commercial success and genre cred can be a result of cleaning up your act. Aerosmith did the same thing. The best night of my life was spent in The NEC at Birmingham watching the Crue performing these songs on the Dr Feelgood tour.
