Biography

Motörhead's overwhelmingly loud and fast style of heavy metal was one of the most groundbreaking styles the genre had to offer in the late '70s. Though the group's leader, Lemmy Kilmister, had his roots in the hard-rocking space rock band Hawkwind, Motörhead didn't bother with his old group's progressive tendencies, choosing to amplify the heavy biker rock ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Lem Goes To LA 20 Jan 2008
By Ed
Format:Audio CD
Ah yes, 1916 widely recognised as a damn fine Motörhead album and a terrible year for war. One could of perhaps feared that 1916 would be a bit of a sell-out, all the signs indicated that; Lemmy moves to LA and the band to a major label.....could we expect power ballads and Tawny Kitaen? Well no, although 1916 was a bit of a departure from the tried and tested Motörhead sound in places (which frankly was needed after the stagnant `Rock and Roll') it still rocks like a b*stard.

1916 finds Motörhead in a experimental mood but unlike previous experimentation's (on the `Bomber' album for instance) 1916's quirks and experimentations don't sound contrived or as some of the experiments on `Bomber' did, just plain bad. No, as it turns out `Nightmare/The Dreamtime' and `Love Me Forever' (actually this is a power ballad) are quite good Motörsongs, hardly show stoppers but worthy nonetheless. But this experimentation shouldn't come completely as a surprise as lest we forget that Motörhead have actually changed their sound over the years. Despite this experimentation, the real killers on 1916 are the balls out rockers which come complete with Lem's wonderful `I've spent the past 20 years drinking and shagging' swagger. `I'm So Bad (Baby I Don't Care)' is one of my absolute favourite Motörhead songs with a rather splendid riff and some of Lemmy's best lyrics. It's a corker, with all the swagger and attitude you could possibly ask for....listen to it and reaffirm your faith in Rock 'n' Roll. `One to Sing the Blues' is a simple yet effective song, effortlessly catchy and a nice way to start the album. `No Voices in The Sky' was sent up wonderfully by Beavis and Butthead (eye for eye, tooth for tooth!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Classic Album! 17 Sep 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
When I loaned this to a guy I worked with at the time, he gave it back a week or so later, and said "Yes, it's very American!" Very American my big toe! Of course it is, it was the first album they recorded IN AMERICA, you Dummy! The truth was, he hadn't even bothered to listen to it! And I think a huge amount of people are like this with Motorhead and their music, they have this misconception / preconception of this 'very early on in their career distorted Wall Of Noise' so they just don't bother to listen anything they've recorded lately JUST IN CASE THEY HAPPEN TO LIKE IT! Motorhead have probably suffered over the years due to this ridiculous idea people have about them, whereas if they ignored everything other's have said, stood up to be an individual rather then a crowd-follower, and took the time to actually LISTEN to a few Motorhead albums they would find the music to be infinitely superior to their imaginings.
Motorhead were Nominated for a Grammy for this album, and it is one of their finest. And for my work colleague to come up with that, whereas if he HAD bothered to listen to it, he would have said something about the title track because for Motorhead it is / was extremely radical!
But this whole album, other than the atmospheric and touching '1916' track, is pure Motorhead at their very best, driving, hard, heavy, and an amazing album for the car. 'Nightmare / The Dreamtime' is also another track which can be described as "a bit unusual for Motorhead" too, but strike me, it's another very atmospheric and powerful anthem which really gets the adrenaline pumping.
For what this album costs these days on 'New & Used' your money couldn't be better spent, and the front cover is quite amazing, too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Motorhead in the 1990's 20 April 2006
Format:Audio CD
Motorhead have had a lot written about them - the 'Glory Days' and the years afterwards. This album features Lemmy (of course !), Wurzel, Phil Campbell and Philthy Animal Taylor.

I like this album. It is typical good Motorhead stuff - but there are also a few surprises too.

Some people say 'Oh this album is not as good as earlier stuff' and 'the latest album' was better' and other things. I think that each album deals with the time it was recorded ...

City of angels clearly about the move to the USA, and tribute to RAMONES, 'I'm so bad......', and 'The One to sing the Blues' are semi autobiographical, and I'm pretty certain I encountered some of the Motorhead crew whilst I was on a flight in Argentina - they were obviously 'Going To Brazil'.

Lemmy's fascination and knowledge of the War is well documented - and often misunderstood. He clearly abhors the waste of life and this is dealt with here on 'no Voices in the Sky' and the title track. Someone said the Lyrics are rubbish. They are not ...they are a personal take on the events and are as such moving.

This album stands the test of time for me - as have the band - and it is a worthwhile purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Always loved this album. Quintessential Motorhead.
Some classic tracks including Nightmare / The Dreamtime, Going to Brazil, I'm So Bad (Baby I don't Care). Proper rock music. Excellent. One of my favourites along with Overkill.
