5.0 out of 5 stars An often forgotten classic, 4 Mar 2007
This review is from: Bomber (Audio CD)
I agree with the reviewer below; this is an underrated album. It's little surprise really, considering that it was released in-between their classics "Overkill" and "Ace of Spades" but it's still a shame people don't mention tracks like "Dead men tell no tales" and "Stone Dead Forever" more often. "Dead men" kicks off the album brilliantly with its catchy rhythm, excellently performed chorus by the one and only Lemmy and an enjoyable guitar solo by "Fast" Eddie Clarke. They should play the song more often live.

Songs like that, "Stone Dead Forever" and the title track alone will justify this album to any long time Motorhead fan. Also this album features the only track Eddie Clarke ever sung lead vocals on, called "Step Down" and the bonus disc even features that song performed live. If that wasn't enough, we also get songs like "too late, too late" live on the second disc and the enjoyable B-side "Over the Top."

In short, there isn't a bad song on this album, though some are of course stronger than others. There's no reason not to have this in your collection unless you are still new to the band, in which case you're probably better off starting with their more famous works such as "Ace of Spades" and "Overkill" so you know what the fuss is about.You will probably want to collect a few more of their albums after hearing those anyway and you could then move on to albums like "Bomber" and "1916".

5.0 out of 5 stars The best first party controller currently on the market?, 6 May 2006
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
If you found the original Xbox controller bulky then there can be no doubt that Microsoft have solved that problem. This new design is sleek, asthetically pleasing and very comfortable. The fact that the white and black buttons have been changed to bumper buttons near the triggers is also a nice change.

The batteries included with the console have lasted a long time and the wireless aspect is perfect. The Xbox guide button is also a lazy man's dream as you can use it to turn the console on and off, as well as access your Xbox live account and hard drive saves through an accessible and intuitive interface. As long as the game your playing is in the console why go through the trouble of getting up to play your console?

The short of it is; this controller may well be the best first party effort I've used. Which is saying something, because I personally really liked the Gamecube controller as well. The only downside is, as with all wireless things, the batteries will die on you sooner or later but the energizer batteries seem to last really well and at the end of the day, the wireless freedom and sound design more than makes battery swapping worthwhile.
