Existing comments about this CD

From: tom Date: April 2, 2001 at 17:29
never understood why this album bounced somehow. I dare say this is one of my favorite crue albums...tomcat@dolfijn.nl

From: Monkeynuts Date: June 1, 2001 at 12:16
It's an absolute disgrace that this album did bomb. I agree with Tom, this is by far the best Crue album, so ignore the reviews and grab a copy ... trust me !

From: Date: June 23, 2001 at 14:17
No way. The album tanked because it was ...... not the crue of old but a 90's something

From: T-BONE Date: August 10, 2001 at 16:17
The Crue trying to jump the Alternative bandwagon. Why oh Why did some of the 80's hard rockers try to sell out? People know and love you for yourselves. Look at Aerosmith and AC/DC, they don't change for nobody and they are still big sellers. Not big sell-outs. It was a wise move on Motley Crue's behalf to return to their signature sound on their new cd, New Tattoo. I think that was their best cd of the last 10 years. This cd (other than Shout97) is just another pop coaster on my end table!!!

From: Joe Date: December 13, 2001 at 9:10
Doesn't sound the same as the older stuff but I still like this album its a very good offering from Crue don't let any sell out tag put you off it still rocks.

From: Tony Date: April 16, 2002 at 7:10
Just REEKS of trying too hard. I love that Tommy Lee states the reason this album bombed is hard rock fans aren't open-minded. Ok bro, I guess sub-par songs has nothing to do with it huh? If you want to check out something better check out Sixx's "58" project. Now that's a great cd worthy of a 10. Vince just sounds ssooo out of place and uncomfortable on these songs.

From: CHIRO Date: April 18, 2002 at 1:07

From: motley Date: April 23, 2002 at 1:36
Since Im such a die heard crue head I forgive them for mistakes like this but I own all 3 AFRAID singles and like them (only Afraid and the live songs) A rat like me, treat me like a dog, Shout 97. G_swine is ok songs but Im glad the woke up and grew the hair longer and started playing Motley again.

From: Date: April 23, 2002 at 1:37
sorry Treat me like a dog was on Tattoo....(ouch) I meant fidn myself...Sowwwwyyyyy!!!!

From: ThunderDan Date: June 13, 2002 at 22:06
Terrible album! So not Motley! Sixx fails miserably trying to be another Trent Reznor. I love this band, but this is definately their weakest album. The Corabi CD is more Motley than this clunker!

From: Reno Date: June 13, 2002 at 23:13
Hey ThunderDan, if you want to hear something that'll make this cd sound very good, try to listen to Nikki Sixx's band "58". Now that was a complete sellout. Some of the tunes on this cd are ok, but not at all great. Afraid, Beauty, and Shout 97 weren't that bad. The rest of the cd, I just skip

From: rocknutter2001 Date: August 12, 2002 at 9:15
this album has always been underated its great okay everyone knows its not as good as the 80s crue but it still rocks people just dont like change which is understandable but hey you listen to every crue album and they all have a different sound okay this was a little to much change but give the band credit they tried something different it still rocked.In my opinion a lot of other bands wanted to change but didnt have the fuck you attidude which we all love the crue for listen to it openminded

From: From Mexico Date: August 13, 2002 at 14:06
I really can´t understand you, guys. MC94 isn´t good enough cause Vince isn´t there, but this album is more alternative than any other stuff the band did. If you ask me, I prefer MC94 than Generation Swine. cause it´s so much better.

From: Date: September 24, 2002 at 10:30
if there's gotta be a rotten apple then this is defenitely the one!!! New Tattoo totally makes up for the mess they made with this one. Generation Swine......the title sais it all.....their worst album EVER!!! If u like the early Crue then for god sakes DONT waste ur money on this album!!! u'll live to regret it. And im sorry to say this about the best rock band EVER!! They're my all time favs.

From: TIM Date: September 29, 2002 at 0:47
I hated every song on this piece of shit. I can't believe Crue put out an album that sucked so bad. Well, after the Corabi incident- maybe not. I have the same question T-Bone has. I used this and the Swine Sampler I got with it for target practice.

From: SleazyMusic Date: December 4, 2002 at 6:20
I'm agree with you, guys...this cd is so un-Motley...I save "Find myself", the titletrack and I like the industrial version of "Shout at the Devil"....the rest of the album has nothing to do with Motley Crue...they always changed but this time they changed...ehm, wrong. If you read "The Dirt" you'll know how Mick hate this cd...

From: muth trucka Date: January 19, 2003 at 22:41
this is good gay bar dance music...er, not that i've ever been to one.

From: Gar Date: January 20, 2003 at 22:13
Well... The Crue always tried to make each album a little different from the last. In this case they made it a little too different. When Vince rejoined, people wanted to hear the classic sound, but instead they recorded these songs which were written during the Corabi period. They would have been better off scrapping these songs and writing new ones when Vince returned.

From: Live Wire Date: May 2, 2003 at 14:15
This cd was okay. Definately better than the self titled one with Corabi but I prefer the old crue sound. I give this one a 7/10

From: Rene Date: May 2, 2003 at 18:36
I agree with you LIVE WIRE about the self titled album with Corabi. Totaly shit and nothing to do with the tipical MOTLEY CRUE sound. But also this album is shit. I think NEW TATOO is far better and of course all their first albums.

From: STRETCH!! Date: June 21, 2003 at 21:11
I LOVE MOTLEY CRUE....but I hafta say..this CD sucked....I bought it cuz I'm a BIG fan...but..uh...---no thanks..ALMOST as bad as 'Motley Crue' w/ Corabi....-- but even THEY admitted..it was a departure..they were experimenting..hell listen to 'New Tattoo'..it's not thier best..but it rocks...!!

From: Rycheage Date: June 22, 2003 at 15:00
I was a doubter, but no more. Seldomly do you here such a fresh and original record as this, and more seldomly do you go away with your ears bleeding as much as this record can do. It's heavy, it's metal, it's bad, and it is s brilliantly produced and executed album. It sounds fresh, it sounds huge, and every band member contributes to it. What a great vibe...I love it!

From: Dusty Date: July 13, 2003 at 14:44
I think this cd is a good one. It is completely different from the other Mötley cds, but I think it is good for a band if you sometimes experiment with different styles. It improves your playing. If you look at this cd without looking at the rest it isn't bad. Not as good as the others, but i think it doesn't deserve so much negative reactions.

From: Sexy BeAsT Date: July 13, 2003 at 14:57
Just another great F****** cd from these guys. Ignore the negative reactions, just buy it and hear for yourself.

From: Edward Date: October 6, 2003 at 20:42
Not to be negative, but when I have to be honest I'll be honest. This is (and sorry to say this) the worst of their albums. I was amazed when I found out that Vince was back with the band after a solo career. But this disapointed me. Not typical MOTLEY CRUE album.

From: Elton Date: October 16, 2003 at 13:20
Não dá para acreditar que o Mötley Crüe teve capacidade de fazer uma merda como esse "Generation Swine"!Meu Deus,que álbum podre!Foi daí que o Tommy Lee aprendeu a fazer as merdas que fez na carreira solo, não foi?Lembra até aquelas bandas de retardado que nem Blink 182,Offspring e outros!A regravação de "Shout At The Devil" está asquerosa!Ainda bem que eles tomaram vergonha na cara e gravaram o "New Tattoo"!

From: Stich Date: November 26, 2003 at 5:46
Vince Neil is back in the band....that's about all that's happenin' with this godawful album...If you're a fan bypass this one. If you're hardcore, you'll listen to it after you get really really really really sick of everything else and you need a 'fix' of some new Crue.

From: Metal T Date: January 8, 2004 at 18:38
Nikki Six is an overrated songwriter and Tommy Lee is an overrated drummer.In essence what i am trying to say is that Motley Crue--- ---Suck !

From: bundy Date: March 10, 2004 at 1:13
In comparison this jumping on the bandwagon piece of crap makes the album with Corabi sound like Sgt Pepper's. Vince has the vocal range of a tonsilectomy patient.

From: John Date: April 24, 2004 at 3:16
Way out there for Motley. It would have been better if Corabi had sang most of these songs as they were originally written for him before Elektra insisted on Vince back into the band in late '96. Some of the songs are pretty good, if you can get used to Motley sounding industrial. But the best song is "Wreck Me", which you can only get on the 2001 re-release.

From: jack Date: June 8, 2004 at 7:11
Great to see back for this album. Its not that john is any worse. Ithink he did a good job in the motley crue album but vince is the heart and core of this band just like axl,tom keifer,john bon jovi is to gun'n'roses,cinderella and bon jovi. This album is not your typical crue style but what more can you ask from them? ithink they already give it their all and any crue fans would appreciate that. Haven't they done enough for us and the fans during the 80's.CRue forever

From: Rockhead Date: June 8, 2004 at 9:56
THIS SUCKS and reaks of Label interference. Had Electra not wanted Vince back-Vince would not have back. Who wants a fat, drunk tuneless baffoon warbling like his nuts are caught in a blender. Back in the day when Vince was young and hungry and slim, he was a great frontman. On this sorry excuse for a record he is just plain awful. These songs were written for Corabi who was once again shafted. I love early Crue but this......oh dear oh dear!!

From: jack Date: June 10, 2004 at 7:20
Don't know why vince have change(voice,etc)in this album?he just isn't his old self-like a tom keifer or don dokken transform to a kurt cobain or guy sebastian(uughh!) or something. Do anyone know why?Rockhead-helppp!!

From: Rockhead Date: June 10, 2004 at 8:43
The reason Vince changed is because his voice is shot!!. He is now soooo fat and stoned, he simply cannot sing (!?!)like he used too. Crue experimented on the MC album. This album was supposed to feature John Corabi but did'nt due to record company pressure. The songs were therefore not written with Vince in mind.

From: jack Date: June 11, 2004 at 1:30
Thanks for the info,man. Now i know why this album is one of the worst out of all the album produce by the crue. Maybe its not really that great to see vince back for this album. but at least its not kurt cobain as lead singer in this album!

From: Big Papa K Date: June 27, 2004 at 20:52
Another great album, even though it was very critically panned and a lot of fans hated it. This album is a grower, even though Neil's voice does not work on all of the songs. Could have done without their worst ever song "Brandon". 9/10

From: manos Date: September 24, 2004 at 16:17
This is not the Motley I want! Where is Mick Mars's wowwwwwwwwwwaaaaah tremolo chops? This is a 100% Nikki Sixx album and I think there is no sobriety on his behalf! Indifferent songs to me, but I really like 'afraid'. But 1 out of 13 is really a bad score.

From: Brandon Date: October 9, 2004 at 13:40
This album is far from great. There are only a few decent songs on here. The major are crap. The last song Brandon is halarious. Die hard Crue fans will dig this, casual fans simply will probably not like it at all.

From: Propane Date: December 2, 2004 at 23:28
Yet another one I spent my money on before I heard it. It took all of about 5 minutes before this one was promptly being heaved out the window before the gawdawful putrid stench seeped into my stereo. This was the epitome of jumping on the band wagon. No wonder these clowns can't garner any respect.

From: Geoff Date: January 9, 2005 at 4:51
'Afraid' and 'A rat like me' are awesome pieces of hard rock. Unfortunately, not many positive things can be said about the rest of the album. Very poor effort from a great band.

From: player68 Date: August 31, 2005 at 16:27
Very good record! One of the Mötley's best albums.I like track "Anybody Out There",that is fast as a shark :-))

From: poproxx2007 Date: December 23, 2005 at 0:43
Trying to compete with the bands that were big in 1997 was not the answer-this blew away like a dry fart upon its release. Just wasnt the right time. "Rat Like Me" is ok and I happen to be the few who like "Glitter" but not a great cd. They are back now almost 10 years later because the 90's were a horrible time for these great metal bands from the 80's. Would of been smarter not to release anything. 5/10

From: Rambo Rockerman Date: January 20, 2008 at 9:19
Disappointing record for Motley Crue,What were they thinking.

From: metalmastermusic Date: June 2, 2008 at 8:29
This was not worth the disc it was burned to . I love Crue but man they blew this one big time. It will make a good coaster for someone. Not one song of value found here sorry to say. 15/100.

From: crashdiet1313 Date: June 6, 2009 at 21:13
It's ok... Definetly the worst from the Crue, but I still like a few tracks. The remix of Shout At The Devil is really good. Certainly not essential, but still worth giving a chance. 6/10.

From: hair metal again Date: June 24, 2009 at 9:42
this is not so good as it should.tracks like "let us pray" is a disgrace.but overall is a nice effort with good songs like"glitter" and "brandon".i mean for me motley crue are great in their hair metal recordings. for example "shout at the devil"for me is an average song as"afraid".for me there s no difference they are far away from their masterpieces'wild side","without you","dr feelgood","all in the name of rock","all i want is you".......ah those were the dayz

From: ghettonation73 Date: November 13, 2009 at 7:14
New Tattoo was good, Then Saints Of Los Angeles Came Out Ha Ha.

From: pie75 Date: August 3, 2010 at 9:12
i was excited when vince came back but discusted when i heard this album this along with def leppards slang and warrants belly to belly are embaresing fancy trying to go grunge they made fools of themselves

From: metalmaniac777 Date: February 13, 2011 at 13:51
A monumentally massive Motley misfire. I've watched my dog crap out shit that stinks less than this CD. Generation Swine? Try to find ANY generation that thinks this isn't a dinosaur-sized pile of donkey dung. When your only good song is a remix of a track you released a decade and a half ago, you know you've put out something that even a pig would turn up its nose at.

From: $$ixx Date: September 17, 2013 at 11:21
I still cannot believe that after having a very successful decade (of decadence and fame), making it huge together, none of Tommy, Nikki or Mick sent any condolences to Vince when his sweet Skylar died of painful cancer. Vince will never forgive them and neither would I if that happened to me. So rotten. Quite some people criticize Vince, but I remember him attacking T, N and M much less than he got in return in '93-'96, and it sure wasn't Vince's fault that the songs on Swine were uninspiring and weak, even though Tommy & Nikki liked to blame all bad things on Vince at the time. In a nutshell Vince was fired because he didn't like the new songs (that Nikki wrote for the '94 album) and because of jealousy. They really thought they could kick their frontman out of the band and go on selling millions of records without anyone noticing or caring.. Nikki and esp Tommy wanted to jump on the band wagon badly, they were totally lost in the 90s

From: petermexico13 Date: October 7, 2013 at 12:42
This album SUCKS! I didn´t believe when I Hearded for the first time, (actually I couldn´t play all songs)the only reason that this disc is now in my collection is to rememeber Me not buying another Crüe record, this changes with 2008´s S.O.L.A. But I Never understand why the band released this piece of garbage. Una de mis más grandes decepciones en casi 30 años de ser un asiduo ccmprador de discos, Mötley Crüe siempre fué una de mis bandas favoritas, incluso con el disco de 1994 con Corabi, el regreso de Vince Neil con este trabajo en verdad es un insulto a todos los fans de la banda y más aún a todos los que crecimos en los años 80 con la escena musical de LA y NWOBHM. Es de esos dicos que ni la basura se merece tenerlos, digno de ser quemado y desaparecido pretenediendo que nunca jamás existió. Decadencia total de un grupo que fué en los EU el Rey de los 80´s. Este junto con el disco metal Rap de Lynch Mob "Smoke This" y el "Rubber" de Gilby Clark son totalmente abominables.
