Methods of Mayhem [Explicit Lyrics]

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Jon Dolan
You've got to admit that the rap-rock revolution has done wonders for mainstream metal. And if Mötley Crüe will be remembered as one of the silliest examples of overblown fluff-rock jerk-metal, former Crüe skin-slapper Tommy Lee's new project, METHODS OF MAYHEM, hardly risks coming off so limp. Reborn as a rap-rock wild man, Tommy leads cohosting rapper TiLo and a bevy of stars -- Beasties' turntablist Mix Master Mike, Fred Durst, Crystal Method, the Wu's U-God, Lil' Kim, Snoop Dog, George Clinton, and Kid Rock -- through a wild ride made to order for the Woodstock '99 nation. Lil' Kim's raw rhymes on the explosive single "Get Naked" are dirty enough to make your speakers ...

You've got to admit that the rap-rock revolution has done wonders for mainstream metal. And if Mötley Crüe will be remembered as one of the silliest examples of overblown fluff-rock jerk-metal, former Crüe skin-slapper Tommy Lee's new project, METHODS OF MAYHEM, hardly risks coming off so limp. Reborn as a rap-rock wild man, Tommy leads cohosting rapper TiLo and a bevy of stars -- Beasties' turntablist Mix Master Mike, Fred Durst, Crystal Method, the Wu's U-God, Lil' Kim, Snoop Dog, George Clinton, and Kid Rock -- through a wild ride made to order for the Woodstock '99 nation. Lil' Kim's raw rhymes on the explosive single "Get Naked" are dirty enough to make your speakers sweat bullets, while Kid Rock's puerile prowess on the classic rock salvo "New Skin" takes things back to Lee's metal '80s heyday without losing an ounce of punch. But the obvious clincher here is "Proposition F*ck You," which takes shots at racist cops, the health-care system, and just about every authority figure it can offend in three minutes and 12 seconds of anarcho-rap salvo.
All Music Guide - Steve Huey
Tommy Lee's first project since leaving Mötley Crüe in mid-1999, Methods of Mayhem's self-titled debut album lands squarely in the rap-metal camp, an area the Crüe never ventured into even for all its stylistic shifting of the mid- to late-'90s. But while the sounds are different, the Crüe's party-hardy sensibility remains, albeit filtered through the adolescent humor of groups like Limp Bizkit. The record can't help but feel somewhat calculating in its contemporary production, as though Lee sometimes tries too hard to sound hip; that's further confirmed by the otherwise impressive array of guest stars, including Kid Rock, Snoop Dogg, the Crystal Method, Lil' Kim, Limp Bizkit's Fred Durst, George Clinton, and Beastie Boys collaborator Mixmaster Mike, plus production work from Rob Zombie. To be sure, these guests do enliven the proceedings, but it's also easy to see them as having been chosen for maximum popular appeal; moreover, it's difficult for Methods of Mayhem to carve out its own identity, opening up accusations of stylistic bandwagon-jumping. But to Lee's credit, he has made a commercially viable record, which isn't always the case when aging hard rockers try to update their sounds witness the Scorpions' Eye II Eye. So even if the album is far from an unqualified success -- it has its share of moments that feel stiff and forced -- it's also an album that will find an audience thanks to its catchier tracks, like the lead single "Get Naked."

    pretty fun

    It's a good record with some funny stuff and the music is fun.of course the band is gonna have problems, i just realized i don't really think of it as a band, since they have so many guests and i don't hear what the band would be like alone. but seriously, the songs are good, thoguh i don't advise listening to it near conservative parents, grandparents, friends or others who who find it frighteni
