|this was a great debut for Vince as a solo artist, this album is better than the motley crue album with john corabi. steve stevens plays great licks here and the songs are catchy and cool. Look in her Eyes, The Edge,Living is a luxury and Can't change me are my favorites.
||Date: June 3, 2001 at 17:27|
|Wow! I was truely impressed by Vince on this one. He had potential as a solo artist, he really put alot of effort in getting a band together & the songs are well written & rock! This one is an instant classic. Unfortunately the music climate had changed, both Vince & Motley Crue were in a downward spiral musically after 1993. Pick this one up it's a great buy. This will be reissued in July by Beyond Music. 9.5 on the SWINE SCALE!
||Date: July 4, 2001 at 21:49|
|I agree with both of these guys. This is a great cd!!! Steve Stevens and Vince Neil made a great team. Sister of Pain and You're Invited(but your friend can't come), are excellent. SIXXSWINE is on the money(9.5).
||Date: July 31, 2001 at 7:52|
|The first solo cd from hardrocks best vocalist ever: I totally agree with my fellow Vince fanatics above!!! What a team on this cd!!! SET ME FREE; YOU'RE INVITED; CANT HAVE THE CAKE AND FINE FINE WINE are just mega killers.He could really kick ass even if he did cont. on a solocarrer.
||Date: August 10, 2001 at 16:21|
|This is a great car cd. Put it in and let it rip your ears off. Much better cd than Motley's cd with Corabi (no offense John Corabi)
||Date: September 20, 2001 at 10:01|
|Vince should have stayed solo. And Motley shoudl have stayed with Corabi!
||Date: October 4, 2001 at 1:07|
|Vince solo is great, but motley without vince is not motley crue
||Date: November 16, 2001 at 9:15|
|Have any of you actually listened to this CD? It is unbelievably bad. I remember reading an interview with Spinal Tap in which they talked about what happened when they toured before the movie came out. They played all of the songs on the eventually soundtrack (Big Bottom, Sex Farm etc.) and had kids coming up to them telling them that they "Rocked" and had "killer" songs (the usual cliche corner comments)...the band just couldn't believe it!!! I'm sorry but this stuff is worse than 'Tap!!
||Date: November 16, 2001 at 9:19|
|Don't get me wrong. Motley Crue were great in their time and there was a certain sense of tongue in cheek irony to the music but, let's face it, Nikki Sixx was the real talent. Vince Neil? Na
||Date: November 19, 2001 at 18:23|
|I have to disagree. I wasnt looking forward to this album, but decided to buy it when it was in the cheap bin...and I loved it!!! The best thing a Crue member has released post Girls Girls Girls.
||Date: December 16, 2001 at 16:55|
|I agree with most of the above comments. I wondered how this would sound before it came out. Wow is all I can say. It knocked my socks off. Or rocked my socks off I should say. Vince put together a great band. He should have stayed with that band. Steve Stevens is dynimite. Saw them live when they opened for Van Halen. Great show. Buy this and you won't be sorry. 8 out of 10 people can't be wrong.
||Date: January 18, 2002 at 12:40|
|Great CD!Vince Neil vs Motley Crue = 10 - 0 !The new one with John Corabi SUCKS A LOT!But this one, I would say that it's even better than what he did with the Crue!
||Date: February 17, 2002 at 15:47|
|The best Crue-related release since 1991. Much better than the Corabi-led Crue.
||Date: May 14, 2002 at 13:14|
|This cd still kicks ass as never before and anyone disagree with me really should try another field. This is a awesome great release from Motley ONLY singer!!!
||Date: May 14, 2002 at 16:54|
|I was intrigued by the awesome You're Invited, but actually listening to the rest of the album was a bit disappointing. Fine, Fine Wine is another great track, but otherwise it's very heavy on the cheese and I just can't get into Stevens' playing style. Where's Mick Mars when you need him?
||Date: May 16, 2002 at 13:13|
|Mick Mars is a great blues guitarist and all respect to him but he would never fit ont the EXPOSED album. it's like asking Bon Jovi singing Helloween....
||Date: May 26, 2002 at 21:27|
|Awesome guitar by Steve Stevens, him and Vince really teamed up to make an awesome hard rockin album, I would love to hear some more solo stuff from him on his next tour. I think this album was better than the Motley Crue album with John Corabi.
||Date: June 1, 2002 at 13:47|
|Some of these songs on this album are better than some of Motley Crue's songs. awesome songwriting and Steve Stevens kicked ass on this album. If you love the old school crue sound, im pretty sure you would love this album. In my opinion I think its a must have.
||Date: June 3, 2002 at 10:14|
|All right Steve Stevens plays guitar as God...but, come on, he's not a rock and roll guitar player ! ! ! He plays like he wants to make everybody knows how he's good...it's not rock and roll....listen Joe Perry, Jimmy Page or Slash... The sad thing is that the songs included are awesome but the Stevens work, ruined it.... that's what I think.....and remember that Steve Stevens played with Michael Monroe too...and try to read what Michael Monroe think about this guy.....
||Date: June 3, 2002 at 13:36|
|SleazyMusic, I was just curious? what did Micheal Monroe say about Steve Stevens? Good? or Bad? Thanks!
||Date: June 15, 2002 at 12:47|
|I met Vince at the Hampton Beach CAsino BAllroom in New Hampshire last night. He was cool and talked for a bit, and he played a good set.

|Well Richie, I remember about a interview with Michael Monroe where he spoke about Stevens and their band, Jerusalem Slim...and he spoke just bad words about that guy....eheheh.... Just listen Fine fine wine or You're invited....and try to stay alive during the infinite guitar solo, man ! :-)))
||Date: June 27, 2002 at 17:24|
|Does anybody like Steve Stevens? What are the negative things that people have said about him over the years? just out of curiosity.
||Date: July 10, 2002 at 12:44|
|I saw a doc. with Billy Idol the other day where Stevens appeared and he seemed like a down to earth guy, never met Steven Stevens but I love his guitar work in this one-total asskicking and NO Vince belong in Motley.
||Date: August 31, 2002 at 13:29|
|I have to admit Vince Neil was the most popular at the recent concert I attended. He didn't sing even one of his solo tunes. He went way back to the first Crue album and worked up to Dr. Feelgood. I heard he recently threw a fit because people didn't know the words to his solo material. Anyways, he rocked but the guitarist's timing seemed to be off just a tad. It didn't matter though, it was still worth hearing.
|From: MALLORCA´S ROCK

|Es una bomba al estilo del D.R Feelgood. Hard potente con canciones gloriosas como Sister of pain, look in her eyes, the edge... y con un guitarrista de la talla de Steve Stevens. Buenisimo. El disco que debería haber sacado Motley tras el D.R Feelgood.
||Date: October 21, 2002 at 18:15|
|uauhhh!!! que pasada! que lujazo oir esa guitarra a todo trapo con esas increibles distorsiones y efectos. esto es caña,vaciloneria, sonido motero y macarra total, para uno de mis discos cañeros favoritos del hard rock, el Vince esta q se sale y no digamos el grandioso STEVE, este tio toca de muerte, es impresionante.
||Date: January 10, 2003 at 21:17|
|Gotta agree with the majority here. These are good hard rock songs with a touch of pop hookiness(is that a word?). I would compare it to the new tracks from DECADE OF DECADENCE. This may well have been the direction the Crue would have taken had Vince stuck around.
||Date: January 21, 2003 at 18:34|
|I loved this project. Vince rocks and Steve Stevens is guitarist extroadinaire. Getting Hard, Your Invited and Cant Have Your Cake are favorites. I wish I could have seen them live....
||Date: February 2, 2003 at 23:12|
|I was pleasantly surprised by this album. I didn't think it would be any good, but I was wrong. You're Invited..., Look In Her Eyes, Fine Fine Wine, and Sister of Pain are my faves. I actually like the guitar solo from the soundtrack (the name of the movie escapes me) better. It has a more direct delivery. Overall, this is a great disc.
||Date: February 2, 2003 at 23:18|
|Sorry, the solo I was referring to is from You're Invited. The name of the movie the song was in was Encino Man.
||Date: April 8, 2003 at 14:07|
|The only negative comments I have ever seen in print on Steve Stevens is from Michael Monroe. The Jerusalem Slim project was Monroe feeling very intimadated. The account I read was of Monroe feeling the direction of Jerusalem Slim was going more heavy metal vs his brand of punk. Monroe asked Stevens to pull his guitars after he had been there for every single note. Stevens refused. I have never seen where Stevens has blasted him back for it, just related his side of the situation.

|...............I have had this cd for ages. Its a classic. A few days I bought another copy at a used cd store. It was damn cheap, and in Mint Condition. I paid 3 USD for it. On my way home, I looked in the cover, and it was the Japanese edition, with 2 Bonus tracks. Its DAMN good. Track one is Blondes Have More Fun, By Rod Stewart, and Track Two is I wanna Be Sedated by Ramones. Cool stuff. Sometimes, shopping in used cd stores are soo cool.:-)
||Date: May 3, 2003 at 3:36|
|Este disco es una completa joya. A la altura de lo mejor de Motley Crue. Aparte de que acá se incluye a Steve Stevens adicionándole toda esa pirotecnia en la guitarra. 9.5/10
||Date: May 31, 2003 at 7:07|
|A great cd! If you don't have it, get it! A great guitar album.
||Date: June 8, 2003 at 15:32|
|Pulled this one out after not listening to it for years and it is suprisingly really good. Vince really couldn't go wrong with the musicians and songwriters he worked with here and if any grown man is PERPETUALLY stuck in 1987 it's Vince Neil and it showed in the lyrics on this (and how he portrays himself now in 2003). "Can't Change Me" & "You're Invited.." are killer pop-metal here and the album as a whole is very guitar riff driven. I'd put this up against ANY later Motley releases!
|From: freddy de keyze
||Date: June 8, 2003 at 16:54|
|Good one, surprisingly good. Very guitar-orientated and boy, Steve is a brilliant guitarist. What he's doing here reminds me a bit of George Lynch, my fave guitarist. Better than the Cruë stuff, this one and pretty heavy too !
||Date: June 16, 2003 at 23:32|
| Motley crue is my alltime fave band but I bow and hail Vince's 1st solo cd. for me ita classic unbelievable cd!!!! Steven Stevens is a god on the cd and the music is written in heaven. Fantastic!!!
||Date: August 26, 2003 at 20:22|
|is this disc great or what? unbelievable guiterwork on this disc...although i'm a crue fan, the first solo effort from vince neil is better than most of the crue releases...a very cool disc
||Date: September 29, 2003 at 4:04|
|Well, there's no accounting for taste is there?! To each their own. Personally, I thought this offering by Vince was really appaulling. Let's face it, Vince was struggling post Motely..he needed them...BADLY!! And they needed him! His stage shows were a virtual motley concert. Steve Stevens, now there's a musical talent. Vince struck gold with Steve coming on board,though I don't know why he joined Vince! Vince is just a porn ,silicone tit,and drug addict with an alcohol problem. Vinceis MOTLEY

|Genial disco ,Vince se reunió de musicazos para este cd y el resultado ahi está ,Steve Stevens lo borda 9,5/10

|Great vocals, powerful tunes and THE BEST GUITAR RIFFS AND SOLOS IN HARD ROCK, EVER!!! Steve Stevens DOES rock!
||Date: January 14, 2004 at 17:21|
|Impresionante CD. De lo mejor que he escuchado nunca. Steve Stevens está que se sale. Dios!!! qué manera de "destrozar" la guitarra, simplemente impresionante. Efectos casi psicodélicos que parece que van a hacer que salga fuego del mástil. Acabo como empecé: Impresionante.
||Date: February 11, 2004 at 5:41|
|Let's put it this way: if you like Motley Crue - you will like this cd. If 80s is not your thing, then look elsewhere, but don't trash it for what it is - because for the genre its DAMN good. "Exposed" is worth every penny you pay for it (I paid 199 pennies for mine) and it's worth ten times that! Vince's vocals were on fire and so was Steve Stevens, the songs are quick and catchy and there's never a moment's rest inbetween. An overlooked classic for sure.
||Date: February 22, 2004 at 22:58|
|Wow. Vince put a lot of effort in his first solo album, and the results are definitely impressing. Steve Stevens really rips here, some incredible solos and very cool riffs; Vince's vocals actually never sounded better; the production is excellent; the songwriting is inspired, a lot of variety. I love the jazzy verses in "Living is a Luxury", the flamenco guitar on "The Edge"...just to name a couple tracks. I wasn't expecting much, but man I had to change my mind. Fuckin' brilliant! 9 out of 10!

|Motley Crue with fancier guitar work, courtesy of Steve Stevens. It doesn't rate with the greatest of the Crue albums but it was pretty darn good.

|I had forgotten how good this CD is. A brilliant hard rocking album. and agreed better than the Crue effort from the same period.
|From: Metal Pete
||Date: June 10, 2004 at 16:41|
|This cd is a terrible embarrassment. Steve Stevens went into hiding after it, then re-emerged as a new age artist. Playing with Vince on this miserable slab was Stevie's rock n roll death.
|From: Big Papa K
||Date: June 14, 2004 at 2:25|
|Sounds like a follow up to Dr. Feelgood, except more consistent then that album. One of the last classics of the hair metal era. 8/10
||Date: July 8, 2004 at 1:32|
|I agree with the Big Papa K once again. Very good rock. I like this album better than the self titles MC disk. Steve Stevens plays his ass off and the tunes are stellar. I still listen to this album on a consistent basis. I wish he would have come back with another rocking album rather thant to have given in to the grunge era. Christ I hate that crap. Long live the metal!

|I have to admit, I bought this CD in a bargain bin and then sorta just let it collect dust. Pulled it out recently, and I think it rocks. Not the best thing I have ever heard, but bu no means the worst. Stevens does an excellent job, and has nothing to be ashamed about. 8 out 10.

|Excellent! A real surprise this one - I expected it to be lightweight and not great - but this is a fantastic CD. Sister of Pain is my favourite track, however there are NO weak tracks here at all - a very strong hard rock album with unbelievable guitar riffs. Vince sounds pretty damn good too! 9.5/10

|This is a great hard rock album. I agree with most of the people by saying that this is the album that should be released after Dr Feelgood because it contains amazings songs like the efective and powerful "Sister Of Pain", hard rockin´bombs like "Look In Her Eyes" and "You are Invited". Great songwriting in an awesome hard rock album plenty of hook and energy!!
||Date: March 19, 2008 at 14:55|
|This is one kick ass cd by Vince Neil and his best solo cd the music sounds just like motley crue but with more attitude a lot better than most stuff that came out in 1993 and after all the songs including the ones on the Japan version Blondes Have More Fun and I Wanna Be Sedated kick ass.
||Date: July 7, 2008 at 14:05|
|This is the next best thing to Crue and better than the stuff from Generation Swine on. A must have for any Crue fan. It has all the components that Crue is known for, big drums, guitars (thanks to Steve Stevens) and Vinces trademark vocals. This is a good disc for a cheap price found just about anywhere. Essential Crue fans disc. 85/100

||Date: March 31, 2010 at 10:17|
|At the time it came out (1993) it fell strange to see Vince Neil on a solo career with Billy Idol's guitarrist Steven Stevens helping along. Those were the theys of grunge bands and Vince was still going on a glam direction. This is probably the last great record of glam metal and it was great. This is the direction that Mötley Crüe should followed after "Dr. Feelgood". Great attitude, songs and amazing guitar work from Stevens. Crazy guitar solos right from first track "Look in her eyes". A must for glam metallers.
||Date: August 2, 2010 at 3:23|
|i picked this cd up in a bargain bin i remember when it cane out kind of just passed by unnoticed i heard you're invited but that's it at the time i was surprised when he was booted out of motley crue it happened at a bad time grunge was in and vince and motley crue went in the time span of a day or too as grunge took over years later when i picked this up it's not too bad better than anything motley crue put out in the ninety's motley without vince sucked steve stevens guitar playing isn't that bad and considering the shit out at the timee this is ok don't spend too much but if you get it cheap it's worth a listen but his next album sucks badly
||Date: February 16, 2011 at 12:43|
|A very "whatever" release, meaning it's perfectly OK, but nothing that really gets the juices flowing. What does stand out is the worship-worthy guitar work of Steve Stevens, which is nothing short of brilliant, and the crisper than a Nestle Crunch bar production job. This is one of those albums that begs for the iPod treatment: rip the first 4 tracks to your player and ditch the rest.
||Date: January 15, 2012 at 11:30|
|I agree with the ones of you fellow besserwissers in rock that "Exposed" was the perfect follow-up release to "Dr. Feelgood". I think it is truly a masterpiece! Why? As many have already stated, all songs are really strong compositions, and there are both Neil's tongue-in-cheek lyrics such as Fine Fine Wine, but also lyrics such as in Living Is A Luxury. Vince sings his ass off on this album, great range, great power and you can almost hear his 'revenge'. Vince, Stevens and Foxx worked HARD in the studio, and man does it show. Vince's solo band was more technically advanced a band than the mighty Crüe (who I really dig!). Nevison did one of his best production jobs here IMO, or maybe Vince should thank Mr. Chris Lord-Alge for the amazing sound quality. Too bad this was the very last killer album from any of the Crüe guys, who all went downhill from here. SOLA was ok, but not as good as Dr. Feelgood/SATD/EXPOSED, that I rate the highest. A non-alcoholic Vince is a true star! 100/100.

|Wow...I Wish I had the easy on demand access to all the Metal Albums when they came out as I do now...Back in the Day I had to rely on MuchMusic (I'm Canadian Eh!!!)I used to tape hour upon hour of Video (the Power Hour...then the Power 30)to view my much beloved Metal Vids....I Still have about 100 Hours on VHS...LOL!!! Can't remember seeing the Vid releases of this album...maybe "You're Invited"...or "Sister of Pain"...but it's been so long and those songs are now imbedded in my RetroRecall...I can't recall if it was LIVE or MEMOREX!!!
||Date: August 22, 2013 at 4:32|
|A super album. If you want to hear how a follow-up to Dr Feelgood would've sounded, look no further. Sister of Pain is my favourite but Look in Her Eyes, Fine, Fine Wine and Can't Change Me all have that Crue feel to them. My only negative is that the whole disc is slightly too polished.
||Date: September 15, 2013 at 6:12|
|This album was recorded by Vince, Stevens + Foxx, you can hear that they were really motivated. Skilled playing (Stevens on guitar + bass) and Vince's vocals has never sounded better. Must be his best performance ever, even the doubters found this performance surprisingly pro. Four excellent singles/videos were released: You're invited, Can't have your cake (Pamela Anderson in the video), Sister of pain and Can't change me. Look in her eyes starts the album in a heavier style and simply all songs are winners. The two bonus tracks are also great. If this album would have come out some years earlier, it would have sold much better than 300,000. Vince proved he can be a good songwriter when he wants to, the albums when he did co-write in Motley are better than the ones when he didn't. Let's hope in 2014 he will release another solo disc in classic Vince/early Motley style. Vince RULED the metal scene in the 80s. I liked his recent book quite a lot too. Very honest! as opposed to Lee/Sixx.

|Vince Neil's first solo album definitely has its moments. "Look In Her Eyes" shows off Steve Stevens's super-flashy guitar-playing right off the bat. "Sister Of Pain" is good and heavy, with a very Crue-like lyrical topic—nuns gone bad! "Can't Have Your Cake" has a carefree, summertime feel that earned it a lot of airplay in June and July of '93. Any or all of those three songs and a few others would have felt right at home on Dr. Feelgood, and are actually better than some of the lesser tracks of that disc. Vince had something to prove, despite being an entitled, millionaire rock star. He didn't want to go back to playing clubs, and was damn lucky to nab a spot opening for Van Halen in arenas that summer.

|Listening to this, you could almost pretend it was still the '80's. Almost. But it wasn't. If I recall, Exposed sold well initially, but faded pretty quickly. "You're Invited" had been released the previous year on the Encino Man soundtrack (a stupid Pauly Shore movie, which is redundant), and that title ... I'm not rewriting history here: this was about the time you really started hearing about "date rape," and teenage girls were told one of the warning signs was when a guy was overly concerned with separating her from her friends. So that song seemed a little creepy for the day (and plus was kinda dumb). Stuff that seemed cool five or ten years earlier now began to make Vince seem like a real bozo.
