4.0 out of 5 stars Classic Motorhead
This could be Motorhead's finest hour - if you like your 80's rock heavier than hell. This is the best line-up, the classic 3 piece with Fast Eddie and Philthy Phil Taylor. Classic 'Head gig fave's like "Stone Dead Forever" and "Over the Top" line up with "Dead men smell toe nails!" - as Lemmy introduced it at The Bingley Hall on the Bomber tour in 1980. It could be...

2.0 out of 5 stars A disappointing remaster
Having lived with the original 1991 CD issue (CLACD 227) of this album for the past few years I've finally decided to 'upgrade'. And what a disappointment I found the remaster to be. Sure, the bonus tracks are great, but the sound....

Compared side by side with my earlier disc this one is MUCH louder. But because of the modern compression applied to achieve...

5.0 out of 5 stars Motorhead at their stongest. Raw power., 24 Sep 2012
This review is from: Bomber (Audio CD)
Motorhead influenced your dog, that's how wide an influence they are, you just can't escape it Motorhead are the reason most metal bands sound the way they do. Their overdriven bluesy hard rock should make anybody who hears it bow and curtsy in reverence and then headbang until you don't know where you are anymore.

It is a funny feeling listening to Motorhead, it is almost like you could potentially get a very violent electric shock every time you listen to this album. A scary proposition but which you will constantly accept every time you press repeat on the stereo.

There are no standout tracks because there are no sub-brilliant tracks. It is an album that rocks your socks -and everything else- off from start to finish. There is an incredible magic which takes pride in the sheer beauty of the rough, raw, untamed diamond as nature intended. It is a two fingered salute to the cut diamond variety.

This is one of those timeless albums and one that appears too far down those charts of classic albums that you find in magazines. This is a complete and utter stone cold classic, up there with Sabbath and Maiden. The album sounds heavy and raw even today and most importantly it has that fun element, that most bands today lose under a stiflingly dense production job.

Dead Men Tell No Tales

Stone Dead Forever
All The Aces
Step Down

With motorhead its safe to say that you know what you are going to get, they are what they are and for some thats fine and for others it their weakness, im somewhere in the middle but this is still a fine album with tracks that are as memorable as anything i have heard before from them- 'poison' is a main event highlight for sure.
The band pummell out fine rock n roll numbers with the odd waste of space but thats the way motorhead are if the truth be told.
The bonus tracks arent much hat but i wont judge those against the overall original album and this is worth hearing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Explosive..., 7 Feb 2006
By A Customer
This review is from: Bomber (Audio CD)
Proof that Overkill was no fluke. OK so there are a couple of tracks on this one that I don't especially care for but the rest of it is excellent, particularly All The Aces, Sharpshooter, Poison and the ferocious title track. Disc two of this special edition features two other classics, Over the Top and Too Late Too Late, both originally B sides of singles. Anyway....get it!

3.0 out of 5 stars 'QUIET' Motorhead!!!!!!!, 11 Oct 2007
By 
kiss the sky (Didcot OXON. UK) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Bomber (Audio CD)
I wouldn't really recommend this CD. It is the original line up, but they seem to be playing a relaxed, even laid back type of rock n roll.
Not as fast, or powerful as many other Motorhead albums.
Only 3 stars.
