5.0 out of 5 stars Overkill, Overkill, Overkill!, 16 Jun 2003
This review is from: Motorhead-Overkill (Audio CD)
Overkill indeed! Motorhead came out from behind the wall of almost total obscurity to bring us this monster of an album. after years of being the greatest "almost" band, with titles like iron horse already in the bag, The Head came back from the brink of death, to give us what sounded the beggining of the halcyon days. Overkill is what a rock record should sound like. The title track is a three time round the track onslaught of percussion led ass-kicking. The record has sumblime musical moments too - Lem's bass solo in stay clean (my favourite track)has me reaching for the air-bass every time I hear it. The album is littered with what became classics - Capricorn, No Class etc. My reccomendation to you is to get some of this and put it on your preverbial rock toast for breakfast.
Happy Hunting

5.0 out of 5 stars Overkill turns out to be subtle but yet immense., 1 July 2003
This review is from: Motorhead-Overkill (Audio CD)
This was it, Motorhead broke from the small time (relatively speaking) to produce one of there finest. The album opens with Overkill - a ferrocious, thrice round the block drum driven monster of a track. there are subtler moments here too. The bass solo on stay clean is the sound of a musician at their best and gives the track that special something. Other tit-bits in this package include the B-side track of Louis, Louis - a personal favourate of mine - Lemmy clearly paying homage to his musical roots. Overall, Overkill put Motorhead into a different league, with production value rarely attained again by the group, it shadows other releases and yet paved the way for the future.

5.0 out of 5 stars best album by classic lineup, 22 April 2001
This review is from: Motorhead-Overkill (Audio CD)
Forget the more hyped but patchy Ace Of Spades, this is a far better all round album. The title track is in the same vein as the AOS single and although not quite as good, is an explosive opener. Next up is Stay clean with it's wicked bass playing, and then the loud but jaunty I won't Pay your Price. Capricorn and Metropolis may not be everyone's cup of tea, but offer a welcome, brief change of pace. Other highlights include the single No Class and my personal fave I'll Be Your Sister.The extra tracks make this CD good value, but don't really compete with the quality of Overkill proper.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Motorhead album, 16 April 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Motorhead-Overkill (Audio CD)
Probably the best album, by the Kilmister/Clarke/Taylor line-up, the strength of the songs is proven by how many of them are still in the bands live set today, from the relentless double bass drum opening to the title track, to the album closer "Limb from Limb", this truly is a classic album, if you haven't got it, shame on you, every rock fan should own it !
