Wasn't sure what to expect ...

But when I started listening, I couldn't stop until I heard it all. Amazing vocals and music. Took a lot of courage to tell this story. I give the album a solid five stars.

I had never heard of a soundtrack for a book before this one and really wasn't sure what Nikki was going to come up with. I can truly say it is one amazing cd. Not only the music and vocals but the stories within each of the songs. Nikki exposes himself in a way that any true rock fan can appreciate.

Better than I thought

Solid record. I like it alot. As much as I like the Crew, this is way above anything they did. As for splatt13, dont listen to all these jackasses talk trash. I live in a country called AMERICA. Here, you can speak. If they want to get their thongs in a wedge, let em' I dont cry like a little school girl when somebody disagrees with my opinion.

EMUSIC-01E24ADC

awesome CD. i own a copy, too. splatt13, you are a loser. emusic should erase ur comment because it gives a bad name to a cd that people who actually like hard rock would enjoy. maybe you will give Nikki some respect if you try heroine.

They Say All Music Guide

Now, this is an interesting album! Designed as a companion piece to Mötley Crüe 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 Crüe 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 Crüe fans — it nevertheless is hard not to admire the risks Nikki Sixx takes on this record, or the strange success he achieves here, either. – Stephen Thomas Erlewine
