The blues don'r rock???,
This review is from: Classic Rock Presents Motörhead Aftershock (Audio CD)
This is indeed the best album since *Inferno*, which was in turn the best since the band entered the 21st century. Another great production from Cameron Webb, this is, as the man himself might say, a collection of uptempo little numbers with a couple of slower songs for contrast. But I just don't get a previous review which tells us that the blues can't rock. I'm not buying that. *Lost Woman Blues* is a fine replacement for *Just 'cos you got the Power* and rocks just as hard.
Given the setbacks of the last year, some of the lyrics are a tad bleak, but there are also some classic Lemmy word-games, like *Give us the time and we'll do the crime*.
All in all, this is a great piece of work and I'm looking forward to seeing which tracks appear in the live set in 2014.

Not for me they don't, no. Don't get me wrong, I like a bit of blues, but the blues is the blues and rock is rock, even if rock did grow out of the blues to a large degree! As I've said, those two tracks just don't work for me; they're neither one thing nor the other. Each to their own... ;-)

Each to their own.......that's not the spirit of partisan reviewing!
Well as the man said, 'this was a B-side, almost a C-side'.
