5.0 out of 5 stars All time classic, 9 Nov 2013
This review is from: Bastards (Audio CD)
Everyone has heard of Motorhead. Most can recognise Ace of Spades within a few bars. Lemmy is a legend. We know all this. But what some don't know is that the album 'Bastards' is one of their best; indeed one of rock music's best albums.

Released very quietly at the time (as I remember), Bastards came out and not with much fanfare or rumour. And that in itself is a travesty. This album goes beyond mere hard 'n fast rock 'n roll and metal. It manages to capture most of the rock spectrum and does so with amazing grace and ease. I disagree with reviews that say this track didnt work or that track doesnt fit. They ALL fit on this album expertly. 'I am the sword' is the no-nonsense kickin ass hard rock foot-tapper, with 'Burner' and 'On your feet or on your knees' being faster again, in case you need it. The album has a slow tempo chilling warning message in the form of 'Dont let daddy kiss me' and there are awesome reflective tracks such as 'Lost in the ozone'. Finishing this album of is the track 'Devils'. Masterpiece in itself right there. For me, if there was ever a Motorhead song that was moving, it's Devils. Who would have thought? ALbum is solid throughout. Go and buy it. I've been playing it for twenty years now.
