When I heard Nikki Sixx had a new band, I thought he would fail. I figured he was past his time, and wouldn’t make a comeback. Boy, was I wrong!
The first track I heard was, “Lies Of The Beautiful People”, which is about what beauty really is. More people should hear this song, as too many are vain and think beauty is only skin deep. “Well, if you think real beauty’s on the outside, well that’s a far cry from the truth.” Its so real and true, more people need to believe that.
Every track is great, all of them are very deep and well written, but my absolute favorite is the title track, “This Is Gonna Hurt”. I don’t really have a reason for it, its simply catchy.
Ladies and Gentlemen, you can make a comeback. Nikki Sixx is clearly back and doing great. I give This Is Gonna Hurt five stars, its got everything going for it. Great lyrics, vocals and instrumentals.
All reviews have the date they were written, the album title, and the band's name, with the exception of Life Starts Now by Three Days Grace and Dear Agony by Breaking Benjamin. Those dates were guessed at, as they were written well before the website began.
