The ninth full-length album by the legendary American Heavy/Glam Metal band.
It is the band's first studio album in eight years, and it marks the return of long-time drummer Tommy Lee since 1997's “Generation Swine”.
This is a concept album based off of the bestselling book “The Dirt”, which is the bands autobiography. The themes of the songs go right along with the book and tell tales of drug abuse, partying, getting signed to Elektra, the music industry, and simply f****ng shit up. The band also refunds the sound it helped invent on this album. Gone are the groove inspired tunes of the Crab era and the industrial dabbling of the late 90's. In its place are high octane rockers in the vein of “Dr. Feelgood”. This album is a return to form it sounds modern as well. Also almost every song on the album was co-written by Nikki's band mates in Sixx AM. This is probably what led it to sound more modern but Nikki can do that on his own, he is a master songwriter.
From start to finish this album rocks you to the ground and doesn't let up for a second. This is music to snort coke to, to bang girls to, and to crash your car to! If you’re a Motley fan and you don't enjoy this album from start to finish you just aren't a Motley fan and should go home now!!
Music videos for "Saints of Los Angeles", "Mutherfucker of the Year" and "White Trash Circus" have been made.

No doubts, this is the best band’s album to the date!!!
