The original and the best,
This review is from: Motorhead (Audio CD)
This CD is the very first Motorhead album, digitally remastered. It has all eight original tracks plus the the b-side "City Kids" from the single "Motorhead", and four extra tracks from the session which were released in 1980 as the "Beer Drinkers and Hell Raisers" EP. The packaging is normal jewel case, one disc. Liner notes are by Ted Carroll, who was the big cheese at Chiswick records, the label the original release was on. The history is well observed and written, detailing the evolution of the band leading up to the release of the album. The music? Blistering. This is what started all the hard loud, what's happened to my stereo? rock. This is music that appealed at the time to anybody with an open mind. If you liked Sabbath, The Ramones, Zeppelin, The Pistols. You loved Motorhead. It's the same now. Korn, Papa Roach, Limp Bizkit, Slayer? Forget it. This sets the standard. The opening bass rumble of "Motorhead", The lyric "Sunrise/Wrong side of another day". You are in seventh heaven. The sound on remastering? No digital sheen here. Every dirty chord is revealed, giving the listener more of the experience. On vinyl I was completely swept up. On this remaster I'm in the music.And I don't wanna leave!
