5.0 out of 5 stars An aural feast for lovers of true Rock and Roll
Like the Mona Lisa, Lemmy is a timeless classic and his band Motorhead is the embodiment and vehicle for his unmistakeable slant on life. This CD gives all rock fans the oppurtunity to experience life in Lemmyland from the post psychedelic Hawkwind version of "Motorhead" through the pre-thrash thrash of "Overkill" on to the never say die cover of...

3.0 out of 5 stars No one is immortal!
Most of the killer tracks, some notable emissions ('Roadcrew' for one), some strange choices (the later stuff).
Apparently a lifetime of smoking and drinking will take it's toll in the end: depressing indeed!

5.0 out of 5 stars An aural feast for lovers of true Rock and Roll, 15 Mar 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: The Best Of (Audio CD)
Like the Mona Lisa, Lemmy is a timeless classic and his band Motorhead is the embodiment and vehicle for his unmistakeable slant on life. This CD gives all rock fans the oppurtunity to experience life in Lemmyland from the post psychedelic Hawkwind version of "Motorhead" through the pre-thrash thrash of "Overkill" on to the never say die cover of "God save the Queen". It is all there for anyone brave enough to listen! Check out the drum-laden intro to "One to sing the Blues" and ask yourself why Pop Idol Will went to No1? Let the gentle chords of "Ace of Spades" canter across your cranium and denounce pop for ever. This is music, real music and I like it. Elvis may be dead but Lemmy will live for ever, whether you like it or not! Buy this CD, play it loud and keep your neighbours at arms length!

5.0 out of 5 stars No Sleep Ever!, 21 Dec 2000
This review is from: The Best Of (Audio CD)
An absolutely excellent compilation of Motorhead's best studio material. The sound quality is excellent. If the bass rumble doesn't get you by the soul then your already dead.

5.0 out of 5 stars AND NOW FOR RAGNAROK ! MOTORHEAD AT PORTSMOUTH GUILDHALL 2012 !, 16 Feb 2013
This review is from: The Best Of (Audio CD)
NOVEMBER 14TH 2012 -
Lemmy Kilmister and Motorhead came on like a Panzer Tank. Lemmy dressed in black head to toe, cowboy hat to cowboy boots and black mustache. Motorhead opened up like a fussalge of guns on the HMS Warrior !
Each song a cannon ball that smoked and fired into the Portsmouth Guildhall ! Lemmy's bass lines like explosive gunpowder and his voice growling like thunder !
The proverbial 'bastards' of rock 'n' roll assaulted the air with the volume to the maximum ! The audience worthy participators in these Gods of Heavy Metal's Ragnarok !
They played 'Killed By Death', 'The Chase Is Better Than The Catch', and others like WWII was breaking out. The Thor look-a-like drummer caused lightning and thunder with a drum solo from the Halls of Valhalla. The guitarist Phil Campbell of 25 years or so saw this as a challenge of Celtic barbarian valour took up a guitar with magic green flurescent lights bestowed by the Valkyrie. The guitar solo rode out like the rainbow bridge across the divide from the Gods of Motorhead to the mere mortals of the audience !
And they finished with 'Ace Of Spades' and an encore of 'Overkill'. The blinding lights flashed as 'Overkill' crashed out, with an extended wall of noise with white lights flashing and finally the Valkyrie guitar screaming and wailing left abandoned on the stage.
After they'd finished the Celtic warrior of rock's guitar was left to feedback soaring and howling like a banshee echoing ! The electronic sonic solar fire rumbled around the Portsmouth Guildhall. Motorhead's Heavy Metal blues rock rattle had touched the Universe like a volcanic eruption or an earthquake. And like HMS Victory the Iron Biker Horse of Motorhead had their victory !

I went to this concert last year, really was that good ! LEMMY & THE BEST OF MOTORHEAD !

5.0 out of 5 stars Brings back the memories, 22 Nov 2011
This review is from: The Best Of (Audio CD)
With a collection like this you will not find yourself hitting the forward button- some oldies, classics and sheer loud Motorhead at their best.

3.0 out of 5 stars MOTOROKAY!, 30 May 2011
This review is from: The Best Of (Audio CD)
OK compilation of Motortracks spread over 2 CDs with band history/photo booklet and slip-case packaging. The first disc focusses on the Fast Eddie (Clarke - gtr)/Philthy Phil (Taylor - drms) years (late 70s - early 80s) and is a nostalgic wallow for those of us who saw them then (my first ever rock gig was on the Bomber tour '79 with Saxon in support). The second disc is more of an 80s - 90s taster. Interesting live versions of some tracks plus oddities from related bands, Hawkwind and Girlschool. "Only way to feel the noise is when it's good 'n' loud..."

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic..., 6 Sep 2005
This review is from: The Best Of (Audio CD)
Ok, so they're not Iron Maiden...but Motorhead will always be THE classic heavy metal band of the 80's (or preferably the 70's). There's just something about Lemmy's vocals which excite me and make me want to carry on listening (or in other words, headbanging) and the fast drumming and hard riffs.
In my opinion, they are the greatest biker band ever...sorry Judas Priest, you get second place!
Best tracks include Ace of Spades and No Class.

2.0 out of 5 stars BUY ORGASMATRON INSTEAD!, 29 Aug 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: The Best Of (Audio CD)
When a compilation is released, it is traditional for hardcore fans to get hostile with the track listing. However, in this case, it is entirely frickin' justified. I mean, most Motorheadbangers - and the band themselves - agree that the Phil Campbell years have produced some of the meanest Motormusic to date - so why only 14 (poorly judged) tracks from 1984 to the present? Where's "Going To Brazil", "I'm So Bad (Baby I Don't Care)" or the title track from "1916". "Nothing Up My Sleeve" or "Built For Speed" from "Orgasmatron"? ANYTHING from "Bastards", Lemmy's own favourite 'Head album? "Civil War", "We Are Motorhead", "Stand", "Traitor", "Sex & Death", "Love For Sale"? This was a great opportunity to finally anthologise the band's entire career in equal measures, thus producing the definitive guide to Motorhead in all its guises. But nope, instead we get the same old Fast Eddie tracks, a Hawkwind song (!) and a Girlschool song (! ). To new 'Headbangers, I suggest you give this one a miss and pick up "Overkill", "Orgasmatron" and "1916" instead.
