Mötley Crüe: Red, White And Crue

Sound — 10
Ok so it's all really diverse here. They have over 30 songs from over their 3 decade (decadent) career. The first disc is mainly the classics Dr. Feel Good, Girls Girls Girls, etc. although putting Home Sweet Home on the second disc seems odd to me. Anywho there's pretty much a song for every one on here. The tone is superb, guitarist Mick Mars manages to vary his tone whilst always making it sound Motley.

Lyrics — 8
The lyrics are fantastic, almost all songs written mainly by bassist Nikki Sixx are extremely well thought out and organic sounding. Although certain songs are written primarily by other members i.e. Planet Boom is a song which Tommy Lee wrote and the band played. This was in the '90s where they all individually wrote a track and the band played. Mick Mars' track Bittersuite Oddly has no lyrics but it a jazz/blues/metal fusion instrumental which is actually exceptionally good.

Overall Impression — 10
This is definitely a must for any crue fan. It's the definitive collection of the best tracks and there is enough on here to satisfy your taste for hard rude rock n roll 'till the Crue get back in the studio.
