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.

'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".

This is much different than their earlier albums, but the songs aren't as good as those on their earlier albums such as Shout at the Devil and Dr. Feelgood. This album is notable for the return of Vince Neil as the lead singer of the band, but I would recommend this album more for die hard Crüe fans only!

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.

Awesome album from my favorite band but it didn't include the 19th track nor did it have the Girls, Girls, Girls video. Was that listing a mistake or was it from a different edition? Also noticed the cover/booklet was backwards, was that on purpose? lol

I'm a big Crue fan but never bought this cd because I wasn't sure if I'd like it, truthfully, its not great. And since it came out in the 90's it sounds more like Motley Crue trying to sound like Pearl Jam, Alice in Chains, you get the point. I don't love it but don't hate it either.

I have been a Motley Crue fan for years, and was more than psyched when Vince Neil was back on vocals. Generation Swine is nothing like any of the previous Crue albums out there, but this is the Crue we're talking about here. It's still damn good. Crue fans will be pleasantly suprised.
Generation Swine has a song for everyone on it, and the 17 songs make it an excellent buy. "Afraid" is one awesome slow tempo song, and the title track of "Generation Swine" is a fast-paced, thunderous song with amazing drums. And of course, "Shout at the Devil '97" brings back wicked memories of their second album. Motley rocks like old on this album!
The songwriting is superb as usual, and the lyrics definately stand out strong on this album. On the whole, this is one great cd, and a must for all fans of hard rock.
