The album contains a more blused riffed style than their previous albums. The record contains the hits “Wild Side” and “Girls, Girls, Girls“. The record also reflects the band’s hard-living lifestyle, and pays homage to their love of riding Harley Motorcycles, drinking whiskey, drug use, life on the Sunset Strip, and spending nights at strip clubs. However, there are darker sides to the album as well, notably Nikki Sixx‘s song “Dancing on Glass”, about his addiction to heroin, and “Wild Side”, which tells of destructive lifestyles and the pitfalls of decadence. The power ballad “You’re All I Need” tells the story of the death of a lover and the song “Nona” is a tribute to Nikki Sixx’ grandmother, who died during the recording of the album. Members of the band have stated that if they hadn’t managed to write two successful songs that this album would have been the end of their careers. This is because they were all fighting addictions to drugs and alcohol.
