3.0 out of 5 stars Solid, but not up with their best, 2 Oct. 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Motorizer (Audio CD)
Way back when, rock fans were always debating which was the best Led Zep LP, or Black Sabbath LP. That was understandable, as both of those groups changed a lot over the years. Motorhead have evolved, but each release cannot be said to be radically different from the last one. It therefore surprises me that there is such a difference of opinion regarding which are their finest works. Although Motorizer clearly hits a chord with some people, if I were to rank order all the Motorhead cds, this one would be around the middle. It is a good solid work, and the production sound is as good as Inferno and Kiss of Death, but the songs are really not that memorable. I have played this cd a lot, trying to get into it, but there are still only a couple of songs which stick in my mind. This is a big contrast to Inferno and Kiss of Death, both of which made a big impact immediately: an impact which has not lessened over time. To be honest, Motorizer is roughly what I expected, as I doubted they could maintain the quality of the previous two releases, let alone improve on them.

I feel very guilty posting a bad review of a Motorhead cd, as they have been my favourite band for thirty years now, and this is NOT a bad cd. What you have is a collection of loud, hard songs, as you might expect. The songs vary to the extent that some are better than others, but there is not much variation in the style. Not that I expect a lot of variation from Motorhead, but the more varied selections on Kiss of Death, Inferno, and 1916, did make those releases all the more interesting. Long-term fans, like myself, will buy it anyway, but for anyone new to Motorhead, I would probably point them in the direction of quite a few others before they move onto this one.
