a hard rocking album by rock's bad boys,
By A Customer
This review is from: Generation Swine (Audio CD)
Despite the fact that over the better part of the last decade and a half Motley Crue have released some of the hardest rock albums around, they have received more publicity for the fact that their drummer Tommy Lee is married to Pamela Anderson than for their brilliant music. The band's "Generation Swine" album is possibly their most commercially and critically successful album and the main reason for this is the fact that the album is simply electric. The band's style is rock of the hardest kind and is full of their trademark thrash metal style which is tweaked here and there to suit a more modern audience. The album is basically a thrash metal classic and once again sees the band in a decadent and egotistical mood with the majority of the tracks being about sex and drugs (2 topics that any good rock album should deal with in abundance) as is highlighted by the standout rock tracks "Find Myself", "Generation Swine" and "Shout At The Devil 97". The album also has a softer side as displayed on the tracks "Afraid" and "Brandon" (a tribute by Tommy Lee to his first child). It's a great album and their best since their "Dr Feelgood" days.
