Great video collection - 90%

Black_Star, July 6th, 2005

In 2003, Mötley Crüe as we know it were done and like all bands that are over the hill they regaled us with the release of several compilations to showcase their glory days to a new audience. During this time, there were also grumbles of a second reunion tour. With the advancement in technology and the development in the field of DVDs, "Greatest Video Hits" was a perfect opportunity to reach out to the generation of today with the help of some great videos.

"Greatest Video Hits" contains all of Mötley Crüe's videos from their glorious career. It also features the videos that were made with John Corabi during the period without Vince Neil. All the brilliant videos from the 80s and 90s are found here. These include "Kickstart My Heart", "Wild Side", "Dr. FeelGood" and "Looks That Kill". There is also the awesome, low budget and very amateur "Live Wire". There are also some funny and cheesy videos from the decade of excess like "Don't Go Away Mad (Just Go Away)", "Too Young To Fall In Love" and "Girls, Girls, Girls". The great thing about this video collection is that Mötley Crüe leaves nothing out. They even include the banned video for "You're All I Need".

This DVD leaves nothing out, and I mean nothing. I'm surprised the Tommy Lee porn video wasn't included. There is a bonus section in the "Greatest Video Hits" DVD that has the ‘91 remix of "Home Sweet Home" and other alternate versions of videos, which includes the uncensored version of "Primal Scream" and also the X rated edition of "Girls, Girls, Girls" (unfortunately it does not live up to its title). But it only gets better. This bonus section has an hour long interview with Nikki Sixx and Tommy Lee (foreshadowing a reunion). This interview is superb because it's as funny as it is insightful. The boys go threw almost every if not all the videos while talking and telling funny and interesting stories about each of them.

In conclusion, this DVD is a must for all Mötley Crüe fans. It doesn't matter if this band is new to you, it is essential to your Crüe collection. "Greatest Video Hits" is a stellar offering from these legends because of the content. This DVD contains the videos for all their songs and alternative versions. The interview that is found in the bonus material section is worth the price alone. It is quite informative and interesting like this highlight reel named "Greatest Video Hits".
