It was indeed !
For the era that it was released in, it was cutting edge stuff. There were only
a couple of "Glam Rock" groups out at the time (Quiet Riot was the other
big name that I can remember), and Motley Crue kicked it up a notch when
they started recording. .... Never really cared for Too Fast For Love (their
first album), but when I first heard Shout at the Devil, I couldn't play it enough
to get satisfied. Too bad it opened the door for so many "hair bands" that
basically killed off that "Glam Rock" era quickly. There were actually a couple
of those bands that had talent and wrote some good music, but it was all
lumped into that "glitzy Hair Band" genre and soon became the 80s version
of Disco music.
