Motor City Mayhem [Explicit Lyrics]

All Music Guide - Phil Freeman
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, when the Nuge straps on his Gibson, he can still lay waste to an audience. This July 4, 2008, show, recorded before a rapturous hometown crowd, is a greatest-hits run-through with a few surprises and a version of then-new single "Love Grenade," but the current rhythm section -- bassist Greg Smith and drummer Mick Brown -- gives the old songs a visceral kick, ...

There are guest stars, but they're stars within the Nugeiverse and/or the history of Detroit rock & roll -- his guitar teacher, Joe Podorsik, shows up for a surprisingly mellow and tasteful "Honky Tonk," while drummer Johnny "Bee" Badanjek of Mitch Ryder & the Detroit Wheels takes over on a version of that group's "Jenny Take a Ride," and Derek St. Holmes vocalist in the '70s band that first brought Nugent to solo prominence returns to the fold for "Hey Baby," "Cat Scratch Fever," and "Stranglehold." His clear, powerful voice adds something essential to Nugent's bluesy, funky hard rock, and a full-on reunion of the two men would be something special. Though three ten-minute tracks in a row "Stranglehold," "Great White Buffalo," and "Fred Bear" is a little much to take as things wind down, ultimately, Motor City Mayhem rocks almost all the way through. Ted Nugent's still got it.

    The Love Grenade Explodes!

    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?"

    Excellent new live set from Uncle Ted

    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!
