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

The 2 new tracks "Bitter Pill" and "Enslaved" are so-so, not doing the crue justice. But everything else is classic crue.And although the original "Shout at the Devil" "Helter Skelter" aren't aboard for the ride, and there's only "Too Fast For Love" and no "Live Wire" this is strangely enough one of the better retrospectives of the Crues carreer. It seems more so the fact because it precedes the ridiculously overbearing double enstallment of "Music to Crash Your Car Too". Anyone looking for a more complete retrospective of the Crue's career (and better new songs) are better off going with Red White & Crue. But for anyone who just wants most of the stuff that's still on the radio in one spot this is pretty much all you're gonna need.
Great Song Selection...Almost

"This is a great representation of the best of Motley Crue, with the glaring exception of "Glitter." This one is hard to sit through. Surely, there are better hits than this one ("Too Young to Fall In Love", "Knock 'em Dead, Kid"?). Still, a great overview of a great band."
A defenitive MOTLEY collection, no holds barred........

"After hearing the new tracks, "Bitter Pill" and "Enslaved", I got excited! I hope future recordings sound like this. All the favorite MOTLEY traxx are included in the aswesome CD, with cool packaging with nice memoirs left by each member. A cool UK version of "Glitter" is included, a favorite track off the SWINE CD. This is a defenitive, must have for any DIEHARD CRUE HEAD! or for any metalhead over the past two decades! Long live the CRUE! I can't wait for the new CRUE live CD this month. I want to meet the CRUE someday, maybe on MTV's FANATIC show? Forever fan, Bobby D......"
