Overkill turns out to be subtle but yet immense.,
This review is from: Motorhead-Overkill (Audio CD)
This was it, Motorhead broke from the small time (relatively speaking) to produce one of there finest. The album opens with Overkill - a ferrocious, thrice round the block drum driven monster of a track. there are subtler moments here too. The bass solo on stay clean is the sound of a musician at their best and gives the track that special something. Other tit-bits in this package include the B-side track of Louis, Louis - a personal favourate of mine - Lemmy clearly paying homage to his musical roots. Overall, Overkill put Motorhead into a different league, with production value rarely attained again by the group, it shadows other releases and yet paved the way for the future.
