Motor City Mayhemby Ted Nugent
This album won't supplant Double Live Gonzo! in the record collections of Nugent fans, and it certainly won't win him any new listeners, but just like 2008's Sweden Rocks (and his previous two studio albums), it's evidence that even as he persists in his obnoxious right-wing crankitude on cable talk shows and in print,/i>/i>/a>

If you like Uncle Ted's music, buy this cd. It has Holmes on some songs, as well as Ted's guitar teacher from years ago. This cd is worth adding to your rock collection. You can feel the energy of the Cat Scratch Fever flowing through Ted's fingers. Like Ted would say "Can You Feel It?"
Forget that "Sweden Rocks" even exists. That album, his most recent live set from 2006 and released in 2007, had poor sound quality and is really only something for the devoted Nuge fan. "Motor City Mayhem", however, is easliy as good as (if not better than) the "Full Bluntal Nugity" live album from 2001, and runs right along side "Double Live Gonzo!". The explicit lyrics sticker really doesn't apply here, as it contains much less profanity than "FBN" or "SR". And the performances? Easily some of the best from latter-day Nugent. He actually sings, rather than shouts, his way through a dynamic set list, and the addition of Nugent Band alumnus Derek St. Holmes on 'Hey Baby', 'Cat Scratch Fever', and the monstrous 'Stranglehold' are worth the money alone. Ted's soulful renditions of 'Bo Diddley/Lay With Me', 'Soul Man', 'Jenny Take A Ride', and the high-octane 'Baby Please Don't Go' show that he has true respect for those who came before him. The energy that was in the air that night translates onto this album and it has an electric feel just listening to it. This is definitely worth buying - you will not be disappointed!
