Whether you’re a new fan of Motley Crue or a lifelong diehard fan, you must get this album. It’s a steal; you’re getting 2 CDs for the price of 1! You get all the greatest songs and 3 new ones in one collection. This album takes a good portion from every studio and compilation album. This is the band’s 4th “greatest hits” album, and it’s by far better than all the previous ones. Here’s how “Red White & Crue” stacks up against those others.
DECADE OF DECADENCE (1991): Contains the best 2 songs from the band’s first five albums and some new songs. This album is excellent except I would have preferred the album version of “Kickstart My Heart” over the album’s live version.
GREATEST HITS (1998): This album leaves out “Live Wire,” and leaves out the classic 1983 “Shout At The Devil” track in favor of an inferior 1997 version of the song.
20th CENTURY MASTERS-THE MILLENIUM COLLECTION: THE BEST OF MOTLEY CRUE (2003): This album leaves out important songs like “Smokin’ In The Boys Room”, “Live Wire”, and “Dr. Feelgood”, the band’s biggest hit ever.
RED WHITE & CRUE (2005): All the best songs from all the albums. This is the complete anthology of Motley Crue–Case Closed.
