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 ...

Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

They're still going, of course, having earnt a similar place in the affections of the British public to that of the Queen Mother. While they've long since outgrown their usefulness, and while most people are hard put these days to recall what it was they were useful for in the first place, nobody really begrudges them anything. In Motorhead's case, Ace Of Spades is the reason. Or, to be precise, the title track of this album is the reason. "Ace Of Spades", along with Steppenwolf's "Born To Be Wild", is the definitive heavy metal biker anthem, and Lemmy's mid-song bellow of "And that's the way I like it baby, I don't want to live forever" is declaration of intent that has rung down the ages. That Lemmy has since given every appearance of obstinate immortality does not detract from it in the slightest. --Andrew Mueller

5.0 out of 5 stars Dirty music for dirty people 18 Mar 2004
Format:Audio CD
I love this album. There's no sanitised production job, it's simply the band staggering into the studio, plugging in, turning it up to 11 and ripping through some loud and fast rock'n'roll. All the songs can stand on their own two feet and easily compete with the title track. It's raw, heavy, no nonsense music. It leaves you feeling used and dirty, just the way Lemmy intended!

4.0 out of 5 stars Trump card 27 Nov 2010
By D. J. H. Thorn TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
My introduction to Motorhead was hearing 'White Line Fever' from their first album, a lumbering, growling song, but good all the same. Then they turned up the heat and the pace. Lemmy might have cut his first records during the old wave era, but by the time this album came out it's probably fair to say he'd influenced many of the so-called 'new wave of British heavy metal' bands. 'Ace of Spades', the single and the album, are just the commercially successful culmination of what Motorhead had been doing for years, relentless, loud, high energy music. They're a far better band than they seem on first hearing. The title track's fame seems to loom large over the rest of the material, but it's all worthwhile. The only danger is that their one-way approach leads to one track sounding much the same as the previous song, but on this album at least it isn't a problem. 'Ace Of Spades' represents a peak; after this, they began to lapse into self-parody, though I never got the impression they were serious. Enjoy without prejudice.

For those of us lucky enough to have seen them play in their early days this album is one of the definitive heavy rock albums of that era (I would never call them a heavy metal band). If you weren't born when this came out and you want to know why your dad's deaf listen to this....

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitive Motorhead Album 13 May 2014
By Timelord007 TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
This definitive Motorhead album delivers in spades showcasing the raw musical vibe Motorhead do so well.

Title song Ace Of Spades is the bands iconic track yet Fast & Loose, Bite The Bullet & Love Me Like A Reptile showcase the bands no nonsense biker rocking vibe at there very best.

This remastered album features extra tracks including Please Don't Touch:Motorhead Girlschool & comes with a free mp3 download.

Some might say Motorhead songs all sounds similar which maybe true but theres no doubt when it comes to hard rock Motorhead always deliver the goods.

If you buy just one Motorhead album make sure it's this one.

Timelord Rating.
10/10

4.0 out of 5 stars No rest until you're deaf 1 Sep 2011
By The Pez
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album opened up the 80's, and with a start like this the decade should have been blistering, where did the rest of the music industry go so wrong?

This album is unrelenting, no room for introspection, navel gazing or romanticism, aim for the throat and ram it down, machine gun-like bass lines from Mr. Kilminster drive from one track to another, take no prisoners, Motorhead are staring into the whites of your eyes and shooting with both barrels, it is like ZZ Top's "Tres Hombres" at an orgy and on speed!

The remaster includes an EP Motorhead did with Girlschool for valentines day, including a brilliant cover of the Johnny Kidd and the Pirates song "Please Don't Touch", an excellent addition.

My only criticism would be (hence 4 starts not 5) the pace of the album is the same all the way through and each track can tend to blur into the previous one and by the time you get to the mindblowing finale of "The Hsammer" you can be thinking "this is the same riff as the opening title track, however that could be seen as very clever, a never ending circle that starts exactly where it finishes.

An album everybody should own, buy it now!!

4.0 out of 5 stars heavy rock fan from Scotland 25 Feb 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD Audio
Having had the yellow vinyl LP version and the orginal CD, which was a poor subtitute for the former,the chance to own this album on DVD AUDIO was too good too miss and i have not been dissapointed. This album i belive to be one of Motorhead`s best of the original line up takes off from the opening track Ace of Spades,the sound clarity is superb for music that is so heavy and all together at once. Right through to the end track The hammer, this album will bring back the glory days for this band.

5.0 out of 5 stars ACE OF SPADES 2 Jan 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
AFTER SOME YEARS OF LIVING WITH A "DEAD MAN"- WHO HAD HIS HEAD IN A BOOK, FIXED ON THE FOOTBALL MATCH, AT WORK ALL HOURS, PAID MORE ATTENTION TO THE DOG, OR HIS HEAD WAS IN A NEWSPAPER, MY THREE SONS AND I WOULD LISTEN TO MOTORHEAD AND I FOUND SOME EXCITEMENT FROM LISTENING TO THEIR SONGS- ESPECIALLY "ACE OF SPADES" . I GOT TO LOVE THAT GRAVELLY VOICE OF LEMMY, IN FACT I STILL DO NOW I AM 71! GREAT BEAT AND BACKING.
