I have been listening to Motorhead since 1977. I still anticipate each release in much the same way as I did waiting for "Overkill", "Bomber", "No Sleep" and "Ace of Spades".
The question that most listeners will ask, is this album up to scratch? The answer, an emphatic yes.
What the trio have delivered is a melodically assured hard rock album. The majority of the numbers clocking in at around 4 and a half minutes. We are presented with mostly mid paced pieces. On first listen what struck me was that no one number stood out. Rather this has the feel of a complete album. On subsequent spins the layers of guitars, bass, drums and keyboards become more apparent. Vocally it is very easy to follow. Though I must admit the first time I heard the track "No Remorse" it sounded more like "Hungry Horace" in the chorus.
Lemmy is on fine lyrical form here. Topics covered include War, Poverty, Homelessness, Religion, Death, the absurdity of life, and women as well. If this sounds dull it's not. Check out "Doctor Love" full of double entendres and puns to make you chuckle and wince, whilst furiously nodding your head.
In much the same way as the last three studio albums, "Overnight Sensation", "Snake Bite Love" and "We Are Motorhead", this is an album which rewards with repeated listening.
I've docked a star as the final two numbers, "Red Raw" a bit of a thrasher (Motorhead are best when they swing) and "Serial Killer" a short spoken word piece are fairly ordinary. This band does much better, check out the fabulous "Overnight Sensation" for proof.
This is a double CD Package. The first disc is the album, 11 tracks. The second disc contains three audio tracks "Shoot You In The Back" and "R.A.M.O.N.E.S" live at Wacken Open Air 2001. "The Game" written by Triple H of WWF fame.

This album is Motorheads’ second of the 21st Century and another largely maligned and overlooked one. If you ignore the unfounded OTT criticism of this album, you will find (yet another)great Motorhead album, that has at least 7 belters out of 10, but has 9 to my ears!
Yes it isn’t perfect, yes the final track ‘Serial Killer’ (which is basically Lemmy grumbling some poetry over some distortion samples) is as filler as you can get (although nowhere near as god-awful as what Corey Taylor was trying to do on the first two Stone Sour albums!), yes, even Lemmy admitted that the last two songs aren’t amazing, and were hastily put together to keep the label happy (although to be fair, they aren’t that bad at all!), but otherwise, this is a very strong album, which punches amongst the heaviest in the band’s back catalogue.
I dare anyone to find better songs than opener ‘Walk a Crooked Mile’ and the superb, should’ve been a single; ‘Dr. Love’ in any band’s discography. Lead single ‘Brave New World,’ features some of Lemmy’s barest, most thought-provoking lyrics ever, and are relevant to the ages, as well as anthemic chorus and memorable verse lines.
The production is great and it is a very heavy mix indeed. Guitar gear freaks will no doubt be studying the featured booklet for tips on how to get Phil Campbells’ crushing tone (I did), whilst Lemmy’s unique Rickenbacker / Marshall sound is as unique and ear splitting as ever.
The militaristic cover art is also one of the best Motorhead artwork ever put onto a CD case, and would be my pick for a ‘Head tattoo if I ever decided to get one!

I am a huge fan of Motorhead, have all their albums. Motorhead is one of the if not 'the' only band that hasn't one bad album (from a long discography band).
I am actually can't find one album that is bad, not all are good and classic, but any album of them i can listen for the whole album.
Even though, this album is a bad example, because is the less good from Motorhead discograpy (amon March or Die) in my opinion.
Still, there are nice track like: 'Red Raw' (the best here), 'Brave New World' and 'Mine all Mine'. And yes, i can listen to the whole album.
But if you searching for a good album to start with Motorhead, i'm not sure it is the good choise. If you are a Motorhead fan or Lemmy is your idol, you should own it anyway.

Well what can I say about this band? There is, and will only ever be one Motorhead. This album still has the classic sound that we all know and love but adds a more diverse sound as well - dare I say it - KEYBOARDS! I don't think this album will win them anymore fans but, if you love this band like I do, you will love this album. Although, not as instant as the last album (We Are Motorhead), Hammered is a grower, so give it a chance. So, as I said, there is only one Motorhead - headbang away.

Oh dear oh dear oh dear Dominic Wills, that's the worst amazon review I've ever read. Talk about missing the point. As Irondanimal quite rightly points out, Phill Campbell has been Motorhead's guitarist for over 20 years and the fact is Motorhead fans everywhere have been rocking to HIS riffs. We don't want him to try to sound exactly like Eddie Clarke. What's the point of that???
This is a superb album! Highlights are Brave New World, who's sliding chord changes sound like a group of perfectly tuned bandsaws and are guaranteed to make the hairs on the back of your neck stand up when played at 11. Mine all Mine, we've all lived that opening verse, in a bar, somewhere, at sometime.......
Dr Love provides us another fistfull of Lemmy's cheeky lyrical talent (it would have been great to see the smile on his face when he was writing that one).
Buy it and play it at your neighbours.
