Credits section[edit]

There's obviously something wrong here. First it states that vince neil played Rhythm Guitar and in the next line is says "mick mars - ALL guitars". Well, which is it, then? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 201.239.127.14 (talk) 17:41, 24 December 2018 (UTC)


Correct spelling[edit]

The album is actually called Theatre of Pain. I'm moving this article there. Taco Deposit | Talk-o to Taco 21:47, Feb 4, 2005 (UTC)

Heavy Metal[edit]

This album is cleary not a heavy metal album it is a glam metal album. Like it says in the sentence in the article Tha album marked a step away from the traditional heavy metal sound of Too Fast for Love and Shout at the Devil towards a more glam metal influenced record in both sound and image. Who keeps editing this page and heavy metal Please Stop. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 172.219.184.205 (talk) 21:31, 24 November 2013 (UTC)

"Clearly"? It sounds pretty similar to their previous two albums to and to most. It sounds nothing similar to something like "Pyromania" by Def Leppard which is supposed to be Glam Metal. It may have certain Glam Metal elements that would be used on their next two albums but this one is still primarily a heavy metal album. Even if it sounds like their next two records, those two are considered Heavy Metal. It makes no sense to ONLY have this as "glam metal". 108.81.33.59 (talk) 23:52, 31 December 2013 (UTC)

Yeah, this should have heavy metal featured. 216.145.171.8 (talk) 18:49, 3 April 2014 (UTC)

And Glam metal is a Sub-genre of heavy metal, so Calling it heavy metal is correct anyway. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 201.239.127.14 (talk) 17:39, 24 December 2018 (UTC)

Quick fail[edit]

Saddens me to do this since you were very eager after finding out that I was reviewing this article, but it will have to be failed by me immediately. This is because there are multiple tags for unsourced information, as well as many citations in the infobox/lead which is not an appropriate procedure. The lead itself is poorly written, while the charts and certifications sections are not laid out well at all. Sorry for this quick fail. --K. Peake 07:51, 19 August 2020 (UTC)

No need to apologize, it's a learning experience. SolarFlashDiscussion 08:18, 19 August 2020 (UTC)
