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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
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".
