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 ...

Format: Audio CD
`Orgasmatron' was the first Motörhead album in three years after the excellent but largely misunderstood `Another Perfect Day'. A completely new line up (with the exception of Lemmy of course) and years of record company troubles meant the band really had something to prove and `Orgasmatron' not only proved this point but it forced your brains through your nose in the process.

`Orgasmatron' shows a healthy balance of the bands signature rock 'n' roll swagger with more experimental touches, as such this may be more preferable to fans who found
`Another Perfect Day' too far removed from the `Fast' Eddie era. I do however have one point of contention with `Orgasmatron', its mix is pretty bizarre. At times the guitars seem to disappear from the mix completely which is especially odd considering that what was then a newly twin guitar band should surely have more guitar, right? The actual production sound itself is fine with a particularly excellent drum sound...but the mix is as iffy as four week old seafood.

Performance wise the band play with a youthful exuberance of a band who know they can rock like b*stards, but just haven't been able to put it down to record yet. As such the `Orgasmatron' displays a vitality and hunger that is essential to a great Motörhead record. Guitarist's Würzel and Phil Campbell have distinctive yet complementary styles fitting within the established Motörhead mould but instantly recognisable. Würzel (along with being a scarecrow) is the more off the wall of the two relying on over the top bends, trills and even his fairly distinctive take on tapping, in all it makes for a great fun listen. Phil on the other hand is more reserved in his style, being more of a traditional blues rock base with a definite touch of class.

For those of you who follow Motorhead this album will represent the second period, the Pheonix arising from the poorly produced Another Perfect Day, it is the album that points the way to a more philosophical and musical diverse future for the band. Every song on this one has a four to five star rating, I always suspect something good when an album has the title track as the ending not the beginning. And, at last the level of production is professional; bass and drums separated from vocals, guitar taken to new levels. Everything about this album is first rate and it is a credit to the band. Shame it never arose higher in the UK charts, bronski beat and bros had taken over, Lemmy and the boys took flight to America and we are only left with memories. This album is as iconic as any metal album you will find.

As a big fan of Motorhead, its incredibly annoying to hear the phrases 'every Motorhead album sounds the same' or 'none of their albums are worth listening to after Eddie left/post 'Ace Of Spades'.' Ignore them, and try this album, as its fantastic and quite possibly one of the best driving albums out there and in my opinion is up there with holy trinity of Motorhead albums (Overkill, Bomber and Ace Of Spades).
This is the first Motorhead album proper ('No Remorse' is more or less a compilation album) to feature Phil Campbell and Wurzel as guitarists and the only album to feature Pete Gill on drums, with of course, the one and only Lemmy on bass and vocals.
The production, although improved on this version, isn't the best, but its far from being as bad as a lot have said it is and is nowhere near as noticeable as say '...And Justice For All' by Metallica. Lemmy has even gone as far as saying he doesn't really like the album due to the production being so bad, but I honestly believe it to be a minor thing and in no way diminishes the sheer quality of the songs on this album.
Now the important stuff - the songs - and this is where Orgasmatron strikes gold! From the memorable power chord bounce of 'Deaf Forever' to the heavy and doomy title track, this album oozes class, tempo-changes, quality and finds Motorhead in top rock form! Their heaviest offering by some distance at that point and quite possibly only collectively topped by 1995's 'Sacrifice' or 'Inferno' in terms of heaviness - we'll never really be able to compare as they were all recorded a decade or two apart. 'Ain't My Crime,' 'Doctor Rock' and 'Ridin With The Driver' are also highlights, and the innuendo-laden 'Claw' shows Lemmy reaching the highest vocal notes of his career!

Motorhead, Orgasmatron (1992 CD, Castle Classics, CLACD 283)

I'm going to start this review by addressing the question of the album's production from an entirely different perspective to the relatively common complaint of Bill Laswell having been the wrong choice of Producer due to his background largely residing in Jazz, Funk and Hip-Hop.

I would argue the latter is not a fundamental problem. I believe Laswell was the wrong choice of Producer for no other reason than he was the wrong choice of Producer at this specific stage in the band's career.

Orgasmatron was the first studio album by the "new" line-up of Motorhead, so the band needed at that stage to be allowed to shine on their own merits, with those merits equally accentuated. Quite simply, Laswell's experimental (for Motorhead) style of production did not allow that to happen. It's so dominating and disruptive of the band's core sound that it almost becomes a band member itself.

I'll admit Laswell's mixing choices are interesting, and his touch may well have upped the ante for Motorhead on a later album such as Rock and Roll, but Orgasmatron was not the right time or place for tampering of that nature.

So if you have a complaint about Laswell's production of this album, bear that in mind. It's not so much the fault of Laswell that you may feel the album to be compromised, it's the fault of whoever decided to hire him before the band had clearly established their new sound on record.

On the positive side, the strange mix does make this an interesting album to listen to through headphones, revealing a number of subtleties which otherwise go unheard or are easily overlooked.

That aside, how's the music?
