There is a strong case to be made for Too Fast For Love as Motley’s Crue’s best album. Recorded just months after the classic Crue lineup coalesced, it captures the band in its hungriest pre-fame form. Too Fast For Love is rooted in the Seventies hard rock and punk on which these Calfornia youngsters were reared. “Take Me To the Top,” “On With the Show,” and “Tonight” put the band’s under-acknowledged debt to Cheap Trick on full display (Robin Zander, in particular, is Vince Neil’s most blatant role model), while “Public Enemy #1,” “Starry Eyes,” and “Merry-Go-Round” all owe something to the hard rock trinity of Aerosmith, Alice Cooper, and Kiss. Of course, there were also more geographically-specific influences. The Runaways and Van Halen were the Los Angeles party bands that preceded Motley Crue, and their influence is all over the blitzkrieg attack of “Live Wire” and the sugary stomp of “Toast of the Town.” Originally released in an awesomely raw mix by Michael Wagener, Elektra eventually reissued Too Fast For Love in a toned-down remixed version; this 1999 edition happily restores the album to its original state. Piercing, fierce, and fun, the album still strikes like a bolt of lightning twenty-five years after its creation.
