5.0 out of 5 stars A greatest hits from one of the greatest bands November 18, 2009
Format:Audio CD
I like how they went about this greatest hits album. They pretty much go from the stand point it is a updated version of the previous greatest hits album. They aren't like other bands who do a bunch of these then act like by the 3rd or 4th hits album have never done one before. I got this for 9.99 at best buy and it came with a bonus dvd with footage from cruefest 2 tour which is a cool behind the scenes special. This cd is great if you are just getting into them or long time fans like me that have all their cds, but like to see an updated hits album for a value price.

2.0 out of 5 stars Greate$t Hit$ February 27, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Motley Crue is one of my favourite bands of all time and I love their music. They released some great albums and influenced many other artists during and since their heyday in the 1980s. Motley were there, loud and in your face and I think that's what their fans loved so much about them. There have been 9 studio albums, 3 previous Motley Greatest hits (Decade of Decadence, Greatest Hits, The Millenium Collection if you count it and Red,White and Crue), 2 boxed sets and 2 live albums since they started on the sunset strip in 1980. Now in late 2009 comes a new compilation of Motley Crue songs, let's look at it.

I'm satisfied with the representation of Shout At The Devil, Dr. Feelgood and all the others but I can't help but think that their first album Too Fast For Love deserved at least another song on this greatest hits. They put the title track here but why not Live Wire or Piece of Your Action, there are plenty of excellent songs on Motley' first album. There are no songs from their Self-Titled album from 1994 with singer John Corabi who replaced Vince Neil but that was to be expected, but it would have been nice to get something from 2000's New Tatoo at least.This greatest hits has 1 songs from Too Fast, 3 from Shout, 2 from Theatre and Girls, 5 from Dr.Feelgood, Primal Scream from the early 90s Decade of Decadence greatest hits, 1 song from Generation Swine, 2 from the 2004 Red, White and Crue compilation, 2 from their latest album Saints of Los Angeles if you count the remix of The Animal In Me (which isn't that different from the original by the way).

That aside, the songs selected were pretty good. Personally I would have taken out the two songs from Red, White and Crue and replaced them but they picked the very best.

3.0 out of 5 stars In case you missed it the first few times... November 12, 2010
Format:Audio CD
I have to say I'm wondering why on Earth we're getting yet another greatest hits collection from Motley Crue. Wasn't 2003's Motley Crue - Greatest Hits a pretty thorough collection of Crue singles? If not, surely 2005's 2-disc Red, White, & Crue hit all the highlights (and then some). For that matter, doesn't the old 1992 set Decade of Decadence '81-'91 adequately cover all of the (important/relevant) Crue hits (that dreadful Sex Pistols cover aside)? Sorry, but this 2009 Greatest Hits collection smells of fulfilling a record company obligation. They even reused the cover artwork and liner notes from the 2003 collection.

Whatever the reason, I can't argue that between a successful new album, bestselling book, and their own traveling rock festival, Motley Crue is enjoying a surge in popularity of late. Perhaps that's reason enough for another trip through the band's past. Here's what this collection has to offer:

From 1982's Too Fast For Love, only the title track is included. Seriously? No "Live Wire" or "Piece of Your Action?" That's almost grounds for dismissal right off the bat.

They hit all the highlights of 1983's Shout at the Devil by including "Looks That Kill," "Too Young To Fall In Love" and the anthemic title track.

"Home Sweet Home" and the band's cover of Brownsville Station's "Smokin' in the Boys Room" were the only inclusions from 1985's Theatre of Pain, and even that may be one too many. That was not Motley Crue's finest hour.

1987's Girls Girls Girls is represented by "Wild Side" and the title track.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Sound update September 25, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Yes they sorta "updated" the greatest hits album of yesterday, but unlike some updates from other bands, the Crue did it right..much better sound, very well mixed, sound is unbelievable.

Now I'm not a big Crue fan, I was into Led Zep, Deep Purple, Bad Company, the classic rock, when hair came around and David Coverdale decided to go from Classic Rock to Hair, I dismissed that period, but just recently I realized in my mid 40's I've been listening to a lot of Jazz, classical, and not enough pure throat rock and so I purchased this CD popped it in my car stereo and they came saw and conquered and it was good. Motley is to Hair as the Doors was to classic rock, every person in that groups contributes as a whole to make that sound. Just took me about 20 years to buy a CD from them and "get it".

2.0 out of 5 stars Again? Really? November 18, 2009
Format:Audio CD
Motley Crue is and has been my favorite band for as long as I care to remember. That said, I am not buying this CD. I'm tired of buying the same damn songs over and over. Sure, they've added a couple of songs that haven't been on previous Greatest Hits albums, but I own those on the original releases. One unreleased song is not enough incentive. I would have appreciated it if a long time ago, they had decided to do their Greatest Hits albums in volumes without having repeats of songs. I love you Nikki, but enough is enough.

This is the Crue at it's best. Hard sounds are best and the metal comes through. I'd recommend it to everyone who loves the hard beat. Ordering was easy and delivery was very fast.
