3.0 out of 5 stars Sadly overlooked effort, 3 Sep 2003
This review is from: Another Perfect Day (Audio CD)
Known among fans as 'the Brian Robertson album', Another Perfect Day saw the band teetering on the brink of break-up. The heady days of Ace of Spades were over and 'Fast' Eddie Clarke's heavily influenced Iron Fist had been less commercially and critically successful. However, with Eddie on the way out (mid-tour, as it happened) Motörhead needed a replacement, fast. As Lemmy says himself in the liner notes, "I was bloody 37 in 1982, I wasn't gonna start again at 37 for Christ's sake". Help came in the unlikely guise of ex-Thin Lizzy and Wild Horses guitarist Brian Robertson.
The fact that Robertson was a master guitarist was not in question. What was was the appropriateness of Robertson's involvement in a band like Motörhead. As it turned out, his approach, attitude or fashion sense never suited the band and his tenure was short lived.
The fact that this album therefore illustrates a dark place in Motörhead's illustrious history is an unfortunate one, because whilst not a classic, it is an enjoyable and somewhat experimental offering. In fairness, there were to be even more significant changes in style later on and whilst Robertson's playing is often a little over-flamboyant here, it does succeed in carving another great slice of rock, which, in my opinion improves considerably on the disappointing Iron Fist.
