Product Description

Since forming in 1981 Motley Crue have sold in excess of 80 Million albums worldwide and are amongst a small handful of artist responsible for defining the 80?s glam metal scene. In a 30 year career, original members Tommy Lee, Vince Neil, Nikki Sixx and Mick Mars are still going strong. Features the bonus track 'Confessions (Demo)'.

Amazon.com

Generation Swine has the potential to be visceral and contemporary, and on tracks like "Find Myself" and "Let Us Prey," Motley Crue actually meld metal and industrial into a high-voltage hybrid. But too often, the group lapses into cheeseball melodies and wimpy choruses that undermine its more inventive efforts. And if the band was trying to prove to the world that it's still hungry and forward-thinking, it should have thought twice before including a revamped version of the 14-year-old song "Shout At the Devil." --Jon Wiederhorn

'Generation swine' is an interesting record. After just one listen you can tell that the Crue didn't enter the recording of this to be a reunion album at all. For whatever reasons the then present vocalist John Corabi was out, and former vocalist Vince Neil was reinstated.
Since sales of the 'Motley Crue' album, (the first, and only album done with Corabi on lead vocals), weren't very impressive, and the fact that the Crue were not doing an album of their typical nature probably made the record label to push for a reunion, as for a vehicle to promote the album. Or, perhaps bassist Nikki Sixx and the gang just found Corabi to their disliking and asked Neil to rejoin, instead of searching for another singer.
Whatever the case, it's obvious that Neil wasn't in mind when many of the songs were written. With Sixx singing lead vocals on three of the songs, drummer Tommy Lee hacking at one of his own tunes, as well as Corabi's fingerprints seen all over the album, one would find it difficult to argue other wise.
Overall I find it quite a decent album. Songs like "Afraid", "Glitter", "Flush", and "Rocketship" show a more mellow style of writing that is generally untypical of the Crue. That's not to say that this album is full of ballads, "Generation swine", "Shout at the devil '97" and the punk flavored "Anybody out there?" make sure to keep the listener on their toes.
The extra tracks on the 'Crucial Crue' edition are kinda cool as well. In fact, "Kiss the sky", an early version of "Flush", is one of my favorite songs on the album.
Also of note, Lee's "Brandon" is surprisingly one of the albums' high points. As well as his penned "Confessions".

Motley Crue entered the 1990s as one the biggest, most popular bands in the world. The band was riding high off their "Dr Feelgood" (1989) album and they had just signed a multi-million dollar contract with Electrica. It looked like one of rock's most popular bands from the 1980s was poised to take the 1990s head on.

But almost overnight, things changed. In 1992, a lot of internal and external factors changed the fate of the Crue. In the early 90s, almost overnight, pop-metal, and melodic hard-rock was replaced by grunge and alternative rock (Soundgarden, Nirvana, Pearl Jam). After Nirvana's "Nevermind" exploded, Motley Crue's style of music was made almost instantly passé. Around the same time, singer Vince Neil and the rest of the band parted ways (Neil says he was fired, the rest of the band maintains that he quite).

Truth be told, had the original lineup of Motley Crue stayed together and stuck to their guns, they probably would have weathered the 90s and the new musical climate, much like Aerosmith or Van Halen (before their lead singer fiasco). Instead, the Crue changed lead singers and embraced a modern sound.

Although Motley Crue's 1994 self-titled effort (with lead singer John Corabi) borrowed from some of the styles that were popular at the time, like Soundgarden and Stone Temple Pilots, it was still an outstanding album (see my review). And although it has achieved cult-classic status among rock fans, it was a massive flop and generally ignored by the public at large.

In 1996, while sessions were underway for a follow-up album to the '94 self-titled album, Vince Neil and the rest of the band reconciled their differences and the original lineup was reformed.

1997 saw the release of the reunion album "Generation Swine.

This is the album that was marked by the awaited return of Vince Neil to the folds - i was expecting a "reunion" sound - something reminiscent of their early work meant only to please their long-time fans. Suprisingly (and i mean that in a good way), Motley ignored the format and pushed forward with their sound. Generation Swine is definitely the most modern sounding album the Crue has ever done - and its one of my favorites - (altho, they're all one of favorites, but thats beside the point). especially with tracks like "AFRAID", "LET US PREY", and the remake version of "shout at the Devil '97".
Let Us Prey easily has the heaviest riff of their entire career - i almost fell over when the drums kicked in. vince goes along with his usual croon, then some really creepy chorus-like vocals and then lets out his unearthly scream rip out. i like all the little breakdowns too - some crazy sounding guitar effects in there. this is my favorite track off the album. anyone who thinks Motley doesnt know how to rock it with the new crop of "metal" bands needs to hear this track.
The extra tracks are pretty cool too, as with all the other re-releases. i sat there and compared the normal version and the alternative mix of Afraid about a dozen times - they both have their benefits - someone should combine the best aspects of both mixes. KISS THE SKY is a very decent ballad. but the CONFESSIONS demo was most interesting to me - with Tommy Lee on vox.

It's unfortunate that this last collaboration with the original members of Motley Crue was their best, and sold the least. The members of Motley Crue have grown as human beings, and as song writers. It's too bad that most of their fans have not. This album demonstrates some of the most intense drumming Tommy Lee has released, and the most meaningful message that Nikki Sixx has ever given. I understand that growing up with Motley Crue was all about sex, drugs, and rock n roll. However, they have matured and the true Crue fans should too. From an artistic and creative point of view, this is the best Motley album ever recorded.
