    Cool Def Lepp debut, but for me, it doesn't beat Motley Crue's first album. I remember when I FIRST heard Shout at the Devil, right after it was released, I was like "who the HELL is this and where do I get it!?". I bought Shout and Too Fast on the same day, still love both as much now as I did when I first heard them.

    Too fast For Love was my first Motley album to hear and to purchase.

    Even though I voted Leppard, I'll tell ya I remember me and my friend (down the street) listening and re listening to the debut CRUE and thinking...where the hell did these guys come from.

    By Theater of Pain it was like...yup...there's CRUE :heheh:

    But one has to love the memories of the freshness of a new band hitting the scence.

    Motleys second album imo was vastly superior to the debut album which was solid.

    no doubt man. I was still a little bit naive with rock when Motley first hit the scene. By the time Shout at the Devil came out, I was really getting into a lot of the early 80's hard rock acts. Thinking back, i'm not sure if I had ever even heard of them before the US Festival. The SATD album came out a couple months after that, had a buddy who bought the Motley Crue album right away. Heard it and decided "I gotta get me some of that!", bought both of their albums right away.

    I love some of those memories. Loved that era of rock too, as you well know. :cheers2

    Right around that time I remember goin' to a friends house who brought out The Warning.

    I had already had Queensryche's EP, but when he pulled that first full length LP out and cranked it up I was all....:pullhair:

    Not meaning to get off track, but Too fast For Love makes me think of many great new albums that hit around the '83-'84 years.

    Hell yeah man.. I remember that QR album. First time I saw Queensryche, they were opening for Kiss on the Animalize tour, right around the time that The Warning came out. I became a QR fan on that very night (had 2nd row seats too, btw :D)


    I agree, some of my greatest musical memories came during that 83-85 era of rock. :grinthumb
