Methods Of Mayhem - Methods Of Mayhem
Never ceasing to amaze, Tommy Lee has added a new criteria of music to his credentials. But seemingly enough, the new genre of music is looking like it will go hand in hand with his odd lifestyle.
A slew of guest surprises for you on this disc including Snoop Dogg, Kid Rock, Lil' Kim, Fred Durst and others. While we all know this thing Rap/Metal thing very well by now, M.O.M. go a bit differently. If you were to take Kid Rocks' lyrical skills and steal Crystal Method's equipment and go into the studio, this would be your end result.
A warning to those that do not particularly care for unnecessary profanities, do not waste your money. But hey what else can you expect from Tommy and some of the previously mentioned guest stars. I personally wouldn't purchase it, but I'd take it if offered cheap or free.

I just turned this album on. The first song was a re-recording of "anger management". I totally love the lyrics. I'm not too big on the industrial scene. However, I do like the intensity this album has to offer right out of the gate. I'm not a fan of rap, but I understand what Tommy was going through when he wrote this album. I'm actually assuming he wrote the lyrics.
Then I wikipedia'd the album. All I can say is how the fuck did I miss this album. It's been sitting in my ipod for a very very long time. I don't usually research albums, but this album is nothng but rap metal, which I'm not fond of. What makes it different from other rap metal is that it's Tommy's emotions. Pent up frustration due to the time he spent in jail, which, if you've read "the dirt" you know he totally hated it. He's sick of the tabloids putting him on the spot. And what ties it all together is he recruits snoop dog, lil kim and fred durst to do the vocals. I admire the fact that he realizes his strong points are (rhythym) and still has the creativity to tap into NIN and get a sexy ass like lil kim to add what motley did best, sex drugs and rock and roll.
I also admire the fact that Lee pulled together numerous stars from the worlds of rock and hip-hop, that were talented but also gave them a chance. This gives a big fuck you to the media who said those talented artists "sold out.
Proposition Fuck you is my favorite. The way Strauss wrote Tommy's part in "The dirt" makes Tommy look like a dumb ass and an a drug addict that has no idea what is going on in the political world. I disagree, and have lost some respect from Neil Strauss.
This album is a great mix of rock, industrial, drums, rap,
He gave the most hated people in rock and roll, the sellouts a chance. The album is awesome!, I'll definately put it in my rotation.
Good job Tommy! Great beats, great lyrics, and great situations
