3.0 out of 5 stars A Sampler, perhaps., November 23, 2004
This review is from: The Best of Motley Crue: 20th Century Masters - The Millennium Collection (Audio CD)
I'm a newer fan of the Crue (maybe a year or so), and I've already done extensive research on the band and read their awesome book "The Dirt" as well as listened to a lot of their hits on radio, and I can say as a well-informed fan that this CD does not do them justice.

I didn't give this album a lower score because A)Past Masters is well known for not including the best OR the most & B)I got it for a discount price so I wasn't expecting too much anyway.

With that said, here is my rant: Sure there are the monster hits 'Girls, Girls, Girls' and 'Shout at the Devil' along with 'Home Sweet Home', but that really is about it. Some, shall I say 'different songs' have been added instead of other mainstream hits like "Dr. Feelgood' 'Live Wire' 'Wild Side' and 'Without You'. In replacement of these, we see flops like "Generation Swine" and 'Hooligan's Holiday'. (Although I'm not a Sex Pistols fan, I really enjoyed MC's cover of 'Anarchy in the UK'...)

I guess I would recommend this album to 'beginning' fans because it gives you the bare essentials plus a few rarities. I just hope that a newcomer doesn't pick this album up and come to the conclusion that this was all Motley had to offer.

But, as a Motley Crue compilation overall...it sucks. Get Shout at the Devil, Feelgood, or better yet, their ACTUAL Greatest Hits album & DVD.
