Product Description

Product Description

This Best Of is a 2-disc compilation album and includes 37 Motörhead tracks spanning the band's career from 1977 to 2000, including four previously unreleased live tracks recorded in 1981. It also includes three non-Motörhead tracks: Girlschool's cover version of Motörhead's "Bomber", a cover version of Johnny Kidd & The Pirates' "Please Don't Touch" performed by the Motörhead/Girlschool collaboration Headgirl, and Hawkwind's original version of "Motörhead", the song from which Motörhead frontman Lemmy took the band's name after being fired from Hawkwind. 14 of Motörhead's then-16 studio albums are represented in some way here and presents a superb overview of the legendary bands hits and work.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I've often found Motorhead albums a bit middling, a bit one-dimensional (excepting 'Another Perfect Day' which is extraordinary) but often boasting 2 or 3 exceptional songs which usually find their way as singles releases.
Wouldn't it be sweet then, if some-one out there on Planet Motorbonce, decided in their wisdom to compile said startling moments and lash 'em on a double cd.

Which is just what they've done: 'Best of' (yes, I have had a chuckle at that title), is both a splendid retrospective of the groups ferocious history, and a top sampler for any coy popsters currently pondering whether to immerse themselves in that fantastic swirling, murky Motortop sound.

There's no way to describe it in print unless you start going down the 'whoarrrrgggghhh!!' route with our studded-black-leather, metal-gnawin' brethren.
It's a colossal yet pleasing row that WILL loosen your fillings, whip your brain with barb-wire etc etc.

It exists in a dimension us mortals only glimpse into occasionally. That dark, hellish heavy-metal netherworld of which we are justifiably afraid and dare not enter without invoking the spirits of Lemmy and Philthy Phil (Animal) Taylor to protect us.
Courageous souls only on that trip.

So what the rest of us do, is buy this type of compilation to make us look brave. So our friends will think we've got some really challenging, unorthodox stuff sitting angrily next to REM and Brucie, just waiting to pounce!

'Best of's removal from its radiation-proof casing invariably results in mass groans and feeble cries of "Not them please, can't we listen to 'the Wall' ?"
Not in the Ess abode children, we like to go full hit into the maelstrom when the moon is full and certain celestial beacons are aligned.

Motorhead are a band that alot of people LIKE, but can't really be bothered to go and buy EVERY album, as most of us think that their stuff sounds pretty similar.
Therefore, for those people, this is perfect. its got all the classic songs you'd want ie 'No Class' 'Overkill' 'Damage Case' & (obviously) 'Ace of Spades'
If you're not a Motorhead nut, this will probably satisfy all your needs.

I write this as the sad news of Lemmy's death has been announced. A true rock legend. The rock world won't be the same without his dry wit, rock n roll stories, and his iconic, magnificent band.

I've been a fan of metal since my early teenage years back in the 90's but always avoided motorhead as back then they were rather naff! I decided to give them a go and I'm glad I did. unlike a lot of stuff I liked in my younger years motorhead have really aged well. I really like the headgirl stuff the most tbh, the girlschool cover of bomber is awesome!

It's loud. It's proud. It's Lemmy and Co pounding you into submission. I missed out on going to see Motorhead recently so I took the next best option and downloaded this. Great i-pod music but mind the blood on your ear buds - Motorhead have to be turned up to 11. Great fun.

I'm giving this 5 stars purely because it contains the best live version of The Chase is Better Than the Catch that I've ever heard. It's loud, it's brutal, it's crystal clear and poops over the 2 versions on No Sleep Til Hammersmith. So there!
