overnight sensation is one of the finest albums of motorheads career. one of the top 5.
unfortunately though, it arrived at the very start of a commercial revitalization for the band which left it very much overlooked.
in 1996 motorhead were seemingly rediscovered and a lot of their classic 70's and 80's albums were reissued along with plenty of marketing in kerrang and metal hammer etc.so really didnt stand a chance.
at the same time overnight sensation was in the shops alongside the new issues of ace of spades, overkill, bomber etc.
this is a great album with some really great tunes. a few surprises like harmonica solos, acoustic guitar and the soundtrack song from a horror movie at the time called 'dream master' or something................ well, the song is more memorable than the film.
this album sounds very fresh and raw in comparison to many of the albums in the 2000's which followed and definitely better than many which preceeded it. the songs and production are all excellent here.
if you havent heard this album it is definitely one to pick up asap. if you have it, then leave a review!
