Motley Crue’s new live album is a mixed bag,encapsulating live moments from across two decades.There are some very strong moments indeed,with early concert staples,such as’Piece of Your Action’,'Merry Go Round’,'Helter Skelter’,followed by classics from the’Dr.Feelgood’era.The order of the songs is a bit unusual,which tends to reduce the impact of the album.With a better selection of songs assembled in a different order this could have been the ultimate live Crue.
Following the rather public dismissal of singer Tarja Turunen in late 2005, the remaining members of Nightwish decided to mark the end of this chapter in the band’s history with this DVD collection that was recorded live in concert. It showcases the Finnish metal band at their peak. Bonus material includes an hour long documentary ”The Day Before Tomorrow” and a photo gallery.

Let me just say that this album rocks. It’s raw and it’s got a ton of energy…that’s what live Motley Crue is all about. I like the way Vince skips half the lyrics and I enjoy the crowd sing alongs. As someone who has seen the Crue live several times back their heyday in the 80s, I have to say this cd captures the energy of their live shows very well. I just have two small complaints that keep this from getting five stars. First, I agree with the other reviewer who said the album was mixed poorly. The sound is a little muddy. Second, there are no recordings on here from their 1987 tour. To me, the Crue was at its peak back then…I saw them twice on that tour and they did a great medley of cover songs (Highway to Hell, Rock n’ Roll, etc.)during those shows that I wish would have been included here. Overall though, this is a great addition to the Crue catalog.
Lots of bands write songs about sex. Lots write songs about drugs. Plenty write songs about rock and roll. Motley Crue wrote songs about having sex on drugs while rocking and rolling through a debauched party land of guilty pleasure. This live album captures all those moments when it wasn’t just Motley Crue – but Motley Crue and the fans. Motley Crue and the fans sharing in the mayhem starting in 1981 all the way through 1999.If you’re as big of a Crue fan as I am, then you really should get a copy of this album. Even if you’re not a big fan, share in the experiance anyway and get a copy. Kickstart my heart…
As a devoted fan of Motley Crue for almost 20 years, I must admit, the boys in the band never cease to amaze me. Thru the years, Crue fans have been treated to some of the most incredible live shows imaginable. So why not release an album that captures the sonic thunder of the band that has provided the soundtrack to many lives, both in adolescence and adulthood? Well folks, the time has finally arrived & this album is an absolute smash! These days, most “live” albums contain so much in-house doctoring that the album is basically a studio album with an audience track…but not this one! This album resembles a bootleg recording…which to ANY die hard fan is as it should be..No, this isn’t just one concert, this album digs deep into the band’s career with a series of shows from different tours. Yes, I mean DEEP in the archives! The songs? Fuh-get about it..From one gem to the next, this album delivers the goods with a punch that will crack your skull…”Knock ‘Em Dead Kid”, Nikki Sixx’s ode to the LAPD is incredibly raw. As are earlier tunes like “Public Enemy #1″ and “Merry-Go-Round”. If ya like sleazy, check out “Ten Seconds To Love” which buries the original studio version. Of course, if you are only a fan of the MTV era Motley Crue you will also be pleased. Standards like “Home Sweet Home” with Vince turning over vocal chores to the audience, and “Girls, Girls, Girls”, take you back to a time when rock & roll was what it was meant to be: fun, sleazy and outta control in a sexual kind of way. Not the slash your wrist, homo-erotic acts of moshing kind of way that has been so terribly prominent in the 90’s…You will also be informed of what the song “Same Ol Situation” REALLY means…All in all I have absolutely NO complaints..I don’t mind buying songs that I already own on previous albums. Simply put: This is Motley Crue…there is no one else.
It’s about time these guys released a live album. There are many plusses here; First, there are two discs of songs for the price of one. I also like the fact that they didn’t take these live recordings and go back into the studio and polish em’ up like most bands do. It’s loud and raw just like a good Crue show. It takes me back. Love the song selections as well with quite a few gems from the Too Fast For Love days! Very Cool!
