Mick Mars The Other Side of Mars Album Review

Mick Mars, guitarist of Motley Crue, FINALLY released his first solo album, The Other Side Of Mars, on February 23 of 2024.

Mick had worked on this album for many years, but had never put out a solo album before because he was totally committed to Motley Crue.

He unfortunately had a very bad falling out with the band in 2023.

Now, he has released this album, and like a solo album should be, it does not sound like his work with Motley Crue.

It’s actually much heavier and darker.

He has Paul Taylor of Winger/Alice Cooper fame on keyboards and additional guitar and Paul co-wrote a lot of the songs (especially the lyrics).  He has two singers on this album (Jacob Bunton on eight songs, who also did the string parts, and Brion Gamboa on two songs) and has KORN drummer Ray Luzier on all songs.  Chris Collier plays bass and did the mixing and mastering of the album.

Again, quite a heavy, dark, and moody album.

I like this album for sure, but I think you may need to be in a certain mood to listen to it.

But if you’re a Mick fan and a fan of hard rock and metal, you need to check it out.

I’m happy Mick has finally released this album because it has been a long time coming.

Oh and when I preordered it, Mick signed it too.

Thank you Mick!!  Rock on!!
