Product Description

Product Description

MOTORHEAD

Amazon.co.uk

Every new Motorhead studio album is inevitably described somewhere as a "return to form", and the seriously enjoyable Motorizer is no exception. Not that the veteran rockers have ever deviated far from their chosen path. They remain what they always were, a blues-rock outfit whose two basic templates are the fearsomely fast one and the leaden, heavy one, both of them performed at fearsome volume. Motorizer offers some of their best examples in both styles for years, several of them good enough to slip straight into their live set. The gloriously idiotic anthem "Rock Out" ("rock out, with your cock out, impress your lady friends", extemporises Lemmy) would be a hit single in a better world, while the gleeful glam rock of "English Rose" takes another approach to seaside postcard humour, this time bemoaning a flaky lady undeserving of Lem's indulgence. "Runaround Man" is a ferociously single-minded thrash, the frantic "Buried Alive" features especially courageous drumming from the always excellent Mikkey Dee, while the inevitable military references turn up on the more predictable if still impressive "When the Eagle Screams" and "Heroes". Remarkably for the (gulp!) 19th album from an act in their fourth decade, Motorizer is genuinely satisfying and great fun to boot. --Steve Jelbert

........as i honestly think this is Motorhead's best ever album! There is not a duff track on this and "The Thousand Names Of God" is just about the best thing Lemmy has ever written/recorded.From first track to the last this album ROCK's.

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.

There is nothing fancy, sophisticated or classy about Lemmy Kilmister but, in his own words, 'that's the way I like it baby, I don't want to live forever'. And so, whether you are a fan or not of him and his music, there is something fundamentally reassuring about the way in which he and Motorhead never seem to change. 'Motorizer' is as brutal and full of energy as any other Motorhead album over the years and if you've been a long term fan, you will simply lap this album up. Speaking however as someone that can appreciate the great man and his music rather than actually like a lot of it, I don't think that there are any individual tracks here to rival past glories such as 'Ace Of Spades', 'Bomber' or (my personal favourite) 'Killed By Death'. This said, 'The Runaround Man', 'Heroes' and the hilarious 'Rock Out' (with your cock out!) could all become favourites in time. That Lemmy and his band are still producing punishing, aggressive and 'dirty' rock and roll over 30 years into a musical career is a tribute to them and, let's face it, there's no-one that quite 'cranks up the volume' like Motorhead, is there? 'Motorizer' is a solid and consistent set, that delivers EXACTLY what you would expect it to, and if that's what you want then BUY IT! 7 out of 10.

Because you bought yet another Motörhead album! Another £10 pound safely into Mr Kilmister's pocket, which he can spend on sherbet lemons, wagon wheels and whatever else the kids are into these days. You could have bought that copy of 'Benny Hill's Guide to Exotic Spiders' you've been hankering for, but another forty minutes of rock 'n' roll from the masters just caught your evil eye. You knew 'Motörizer' wouldn't offer much new or anything that has the band branching out like a shrubbery fueled by Special Brew and cigarettes... but faithfully, you fed the money to the spotty and impressively fringed youth and subsequently got your rocks off, because at heart you're just a geriatric grebo trapped inside the body of an eighteen year old hermaphrodite.

I have one bone to pick with 'Motörizer'; the guitar sound is often a bit plain. 'Kiss of Death', though not perfectly produced, had a great mid-range crunch to the guitars but here things are just a little too drab in the rhythm sound. Phil Campbell has a great guitar sound live and on previous records ('1916' and even the otherwise ropey 'Snakebite Love' spring to mind) he sounded huge, but this is quite flat sounding. Not a horrid guitar sound by any means, just when you've got a guitarist with a killer signature sound why not let him shine? It's pretty clear that Cameron Webb is no Vic Maile, I for one would like a change in producer for next album, though the boys are probably set in their ways and probably don't want a change... I mean Phil taking his hat off last year was quite enough of a shock. Still the bass and drums sound pretty good on this one. Mikkey has never quite captured his live sound but recording at Dave 'No More Mr Nice Guy' Grohl's studio gives him a clear and round tub thumping sound.

Two things in life, beyond Death and Taxes, are certain. The first is that Joe Public (bless 'im) thinks of Motorhead as a static force, a never-changing outfit who continue to churn out the same racket year in, year out. Certain, but wrong!

The second, and by far the most important, constant, is that each new Motorhead album of recent years just gets better and better....

I'm lucky enough to have a preview copy of this. I've lived with the album for well over a week now, and my set of jaded old ears have been rejuvenated by this fresh (yes, fresh!) take on the rock'n'roll machine....

If 'Rock Out' doesn't become the new live set-opener, then there's no justice... it has all the immediacy of 'We Are Motorhead', or dare I mention, 'Ace Of Spades'.... a perfect distillation of rock'n'roll in as little time as it takes the SAS to get in and out of a foreign embassy...

'Runaround Man' may revisit 'Going to Brazil', but it's topped by a riff so thick you could stand on it, whilst 'When The Eagle Screams' has a musical hook-worm ready to burrow into your grey matter and stay there....

Much is made of Lemmy's wordsmithery - this ain't no collection of'Bama Lama Bama Loo' style affairs; for the thinking man, there's a lot here to keep you marvelling at his way with wit, words and wisdom - and for the Beavis & Butthead generation, the 'rock out with your co*k out' line in 'Rock Out' should keep a few folks sniggering along. It worked for me. :-)

Cliche it may be, but the caveat 'All Killer, No Filler' really DOES apply here - there's nothing duff, just eleven slices of primal r'n'r that strive and win to make the hairs on the back of yer neck stand up!

If you haven't listened to the band since 'Ace Of Spades', start here, or with 'Inferno', or 'Kiss Of Death' - you'll be in for a tasty surprise. This is THE best lineup of Motorhead ever, and darn near their best album.
