Classic Album Review: Mötley Crüe | Greatest Hits

The Sunset Strip sleaze-rockers take a drunken stumble down memory lane.

This came out in 1998 – or at least that’s when I got it. Here’s what I said about it back then (with some minor editing):


Let’s play this by-the-numbers set by the numbers, shall we?

Length: 73 minutes.
Old Tunes: 15.
New Tracks: 2.5 — two mid-tempo throwaways and last year’s retreaded Shout At the Devil.
Best Old Track: Wild Side.
Missing Old Track: Hooligan’s Holiday, from that CD with the other singer.
Token Power Ballad: Home Sweet Home.
Spinal Tap Moment: Tommy Lee thanking the “deputies at L.A. County Jail who were cool to me” and praying “God please bring my family back together” in the same breath.
