It may have divided opinion at the time, but these days most fans seem to agree that this is a great Motörhead album. There will be some who say 'It doesn't sound like Motörhead' -- well, what is a typical Motörhead record? 'Overkill'? 'Orgasmatron'? 'March or Die'? 'Sacrifice'? Their catalogue is a bit more diverse than they're generally given credit for (especially by people who don't really listen to them).

Whatever the problems between Lemmy and Brian Robertson, they seem to have arisen on the road rather than in the studio, because 'Another Perfect Day' is a slick, harmonious listen. Arguably Robertson's leads are a little intrusive at times -- he obviously saw this as a showcase for his considerable talents, and squeezed in licks where they shouldn't always have been -- but there's no doubt that the sound he honed with Thin Lizzy found its fullest expression here, and added something hugely valuable to the Motörhead sound, from the melodic riffing on 'Dancing on Your Grave' to the blues workout of 'One Track Mind'. And check out 'Rock It' if you think this is a less 'heavy' sound that what went before.

My (probably heretical) view is that Eddie Clarke was an excellent but limited guitarist who had done all he could with Motörhead, and whose production on 'Iron Fist' bordered on the egotistical and marred a very strong set of songs. 'Another Perfect Day' is a stronger set of songs from a more musical group and with better production. I doubt that this line-up could have survived long, but I'm glad it made this record.

And the cover is awesome.

1983 was quite a bizarre year for two of the giants of hard rock and heavy metal namely Black Sabbath and Motörhead both experiencing very strange line ups in a one album situation what with Gillan joining Sabbath and erstwhile Thin Lizzy guitarist Brian `Robbo' Robertson replacing `Fast' Eddie Clarke.

Musically this album is a departure from the sound of the `Fast' Eddie albums which truth be told had become a little stale by the time of `Iron Fist' which although quite good wasn't up to the standard of the previous three classic albums. This can be put down to the more melodic sensibilities of Robbo's guitar playing but this is still a loud and fast rock `n' roll album, Motörhead haven't suddenly turned into Opeth, don't worry. Even if you don't like the change in direction surely any Motörhead fan can appreciate these are some of the best songs the band ever put out.

Particularly of note especially to me as a guitar playing is Brian Robertson's guitar playing, especially his lead work which is always astounding, clean and melodic yet energetic and never descending into pointless shred exercises. Lemmy said this album had `too much guitar' for once he was wrong, ok, there may be three or four solos in each song but these solos are always perfectly crafted and add to the songs instead of detracting. It could be said that Robbo was the wrong guitarist for Motörhead, maybe this was true on the following tour in which he refused to play other Motörhead classics, but as far as his work in the studio goes, he was an excellent choice for the band.

It seems 1983 was quite the year of Hard Rock and Heavy Metal one offs what with Gillan in Black Sabbath and of course what we have hear Brian Robertson lending his extraordinary guitar talents to Motörhead. This is something very different from Motörhead it is a departure or sorts from the more straight ahead material of the 'Fast' Eddie Clarke era into a more musical directions, saying that this isn't exactly Coldplay, and Still is loud and fast Rock 'n' Roll.

The Song writing hear ranks easily amongst the bands and best. The trio of Lemmy, Robbo and Philthy Phil give amazing performances throughout with 'Back at the Funny Farm', 'Shine', 'Another Perfect Day', 'Dancing on your Grave' and 'I Got Mine' being standouts (the later two still live favourites). Simply put the album is fantastic with great performances (perhaps Robbo and Phil's best!), excellent lyrics and a crystal clear production you can't afford not to have this. So if you think the be all and end all of Motörhead is 'Ace of Spades' think again and give this a try.

There will always be arguments amongst die hard fans when it comes to music that spreads over almost 4 decades. At the time I recall almost sheer surprise in the music press when this came out as it carried as much melody as it did the usual level of Motorhead might. Lemmy was actually singing as much as he growled.... fans were disgusted, the Overkill / Bomber power train had surely been derailed.

But had it? Listening to this record around 30 years after it first came out, you approach it with an open mind and suddenly you realise that this record actually has a degree of songwriting that Lemmy always had from his days in Hawkwind, and there is actually plenty enough Rickenbacker powered rock to satisfy any die hard fan.

Shine, Another Perfect Day and more are melodically driven power rock that anyone can listen to and surely from a creative perspective that's the point. Motorhead made a record that made them new fans as much as it pissed off the existing ones. And I'm sure if those fans who deserted actually give this a spin, will find themselves coming back soon enough.
