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
Taking its studio content from just two albums this CD is somewhat limited for a "best of" compilation, although the tracklisting isn't too bad.

The first half of the CD features a selection of material from the Orgasmatron and Rock and Roll albums. The second half is live, featuring tracks from The Birthday Party and No Sleep At All.

Fundamentally this compilation fails on two levels;

1) For casual listeners, at whom the "best of" is usually aimed, it has none of the band's hits in their studio versions. They only appear here as live recordings, which can often be a let down for the uninitiated who buy compilations expecting to hear the version common to TV or the radio etc.

2) Although the track selection is excellent as a "best of" for fans of Motorhead's 1986 - 1988 line-up, those people will probably already own the albums from which this material is taken. The only attraction will be the inclusion of two Rock and Roll era b-sides, but even those have since appeared as bonus tracks on the various Rock and Roll remasters.

So I'll rate this "Best Of" with 3 stars. It has a good track selection, but just to limited in scope.
