Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Through lead-singer strife and domestic blisters, the Crüe have endured. Greatest Hits is a breather for the group and provides an opportunity to look back at the construction and destruction of this much-maligned multimillion-record-selling ensemble. Sure, much of what's here overlaps with Decade of Decadence, but we do get three tunes from Generation Swine ("Glitter" receives a tender remix) and an eight-panel foldout booklet with essays from each of the rug rats. Most important, two new tracks--"Bitter Pill" and "Enslaved"--feature golden-boy knob twiddler Bob Rock, who oversees two no-nonsense, no-electronics blasts through the candy-metal past. The future looks glam, indeed. --Martin Popoff

4.0 out of 5 stars (Most of) The Crue's Greatest October 2, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I don't think that there's ever been a greatest hits album in the history of the music business that didn't rile up a couple of fans. Motley Crue, who was known as much for their off stage antics as their on stage ones, weighs in with this 17-track package, and it's mostly the good stuff in here. There are some songs on here that most other reviewers thought didn't belong, but I happen to like "Without You" and "Afraid." There are a few clunkers on here, like "Glitter" and the re-tooled and nu-metal-ed "Shout at the Devil," but overall it's pretty hard to pick up a greatest hits package and just HATE it. Even the two new tracks ("Bitter Pill" and "Enslaved") are great additions to the Crue legacy.

Just a few more nitpicking moments: First off, the track order is somewhat flawed. The songs are grouped together pretty well, though "Glitter" falls in between two of the Crue's heaviest cuts - "Wild Side" and "Dr. Feelgood." Also, the transition from "Without You" to "Smokin' in the Boys Room" is jarring to say the least. Finally, someone should have spent a little more time on the artwork. It looks rushed.

If you're really into Motley Crue, I'd recommend picking this one up for the two unreleased songs. If you're not REALLY into Motley Crue, this does a good job of collecting the essential songs (except "Live Wire"). Personally, I've got a bunch of Motley Crue records, but I throw this one on when I'm feeling lazy.

Greatest hits? Mostly. Worth the admission price? Definitely.

3.0 out of 5 stars Welcome to 80s metal May 26, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Does The Darkness have you curious about 80s metal? You think that you will get a feel for what we went through in the 80s by buying this Greatest Hits? This CD is far short of the best of Motley Crue. It doesn't even include Too Young To Fall In Love and it messes up the original Shout At The Devil. Obviously a record exec put these songs together.
Think about the big bands today. Normally they come out with a raw album (sorry, I'm old) that grabs the attention of real music lovers. An underground buzz starts, then the record company gets a hold of the band and sees dollar signs. MTV steals the their souls from the artists and kills everything about the music. The art dies and the band becomes a "sell-out". For most people, their favorite album of a band is the first one they heard. This isn't always the case but it is very true of 80s metal. The hits you hear on 80s stations are rearly the songs that got us off.
If you REALLY want to know what it was like for 80s metal fans and why it blew up, you can't just download individual hits. The list below is a good start of CDs to pick up for beginners. These may not be the most selling albums of these bands, but they are the raw stuff that made us love them:
Motley Crue: Shout At The Devil (Pure, hard, real. No other MC album comes close)
Ratt: Out of the Cellar (Again, blew us away when it came out)
Van Halan: 1984 (Has some hits but the fillers are amazing)
Twisted Sister: Stay Hungry (Once you listen to this a couple of times, "We're not Going to Take it" & "I Wanna Rock" will be your least favorites. Check out "The Price")
Def Leppard: Pyromania (Every teenager owned this in 1983.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good, but really not so good, Missing alot July 23, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Well this is coming from a big crue head, and all I can say is if you are a really big crue fan that wants to collect all the crues albums get this one. But if not, and your a new fan looking for a greatest hits collection, please! go for Red White and Crue, it has way more songs only for a little more. Besides this disc is missing some of the most essential tracks from the crue like Live Wire and All in the name of..., Anarchy In the U.K., Piece of your action, Too Young to fall in love, and without you. Besides Red White and Crue has all of the missing tracks of this disc, and 90 percent of the good new songs of this cd.

4.0 out of 5 stars More than just a bad boy reputation November 17, 2004
Format:Audio CD
For the majority of the eighties, the world belonged to Motley Crue, and they did their best to rock it. They also did their best to all but do themselves in. Behind all the drug OD's, celebrity girlfriends, car crashes and head-on's with the law, Motley Crue never lost sight of one thing. They were a rock and roll party band and the party, as long as they were holding it, was always going to be loud and crazy.

"Motley Crue: Greatest Hits" rises above the tabloid fodder and argues eloquently -- then again, maybe eloquent is not a Motley Crue term -- that the Crue were every bit as important as Guns and Roses during the rock wars of the eighties. These were songs written for strip joints and home grown debauchery. "Girls Girls Girls" slides by on a greasy guitar hook that just screams pole dancing, and the notorious video backed that image up to the hilt. "Shout At The Devil" shoves a middle finger at any authority figure to stand in its way, and who else but Motley Crue could turn a near death experience into a song as incredible as "Kickstart My Heart?"

Crue tunes stole shamelessly and brilliantly. "Kickstart" could have popped out from a Sweet or Slade book of riffs, and there are times when Vince Neil shows a debt to Robin Zander of Cheap Trick (especially on "Same Old Situation" and the underrated "Glitter"). They spotted a party tune ("Smoking In The Boys Room") from years away and turned it into their breakout hit. And like all perpetual adolescents, they maintained a boy's club mentality that fostered songs like "Wild Side" and "Don't Go Away."

They also had their hearts on the leather jacketed sleeve side as well. "Home Sweet Home" was the Crue's "Senior Prom" moment.
