This Is Gonna Hurt is the second album from NIKKI SIXX’s latest Sixx A.M. and the follow up to the hugely successful Heroin Diaries, and pretty much picks up where that album left off. This Is Gonna Hurt is pretty much the soundtrack to NIKKI SIXX’s latest book release This Is Gonna Hurt: Music, Photography And Life Through The Distorted Lens Of Nikki Sixx.
The album is filled with atmospheric, haunting and moody soundscapes, from the industrial tinged opener, and title track, This Is Gonna Hurt, to the big ballad Smile. This is an album that contains so many mixed musical styles, yet is woven together so well it’s unbelievable!
Another truly outstanding thing about this album is the simple fact that every one of the 11 tracks stands perfectly well on its own, there’s not a duff track in sight, something of as rarity today!
Once again the band, Nikki Sixx – bass, James Michael – vocals and DJ Ashba – Guitar
really do themselves proud, showcasing their talents and songwriting to perfection.
As I said, all 11 tracks are brilliant, but a couple really do stand out to me, those being title track, This Is Gonna Hurt, Lies Of The Beautiful People, Deadlihood, Oh My God and album closer, Skin.
Very highly recommended!
