Orgasmatron is the seventh album by Motörhead, released in 1986. The album's working title was Ridin' with the Driver and later changed to Orgasmatron; it was too late for Joe Petagnoto change the cover art and the train design was used. This 2006 deluxe edition includes the BBC Radio 1 broadcast of the band's performance at the Kerrang! Wooargh Weekender

Made after the Original Motorhead, sans Fast Eddie, where they took a side step from the more rock
' roll sound of every studioalbum from the debut Motorhead til Another perfect day. The bookend of this period was the relaease of No Remorse, a staggering best of retrospective, including single and last of the old rock n' roll sound of the band, Killed by Death.
Orgasmatrom has many highlights. The obvioius, Dr. rock, Built for speed and the meancing title track.
The most interesting, which make it a stand out is the production, and obvious new band members. Unlike any Head album its sound is industrious.
I highly regard the album, because of that. They have never sounded like this beforebor after. Post Orgasmatrom, the production became more heavy metal influenced. This has also to do with M Dee's drumming style, but foremost production wise. The guitars are more heavymetal. Lemmy is Lemmy, all the time. I am a fan of Motorhead mark1+ the Robertson guitar induenced and overlooked Another Perfect day1983.
On that note I will recommend this to fans of the original Motorhead line up1975-1982 and the fans of the more recent recordings. 1991-and onwards. When it came out in 1987, it blew me away. There were no industrial rock n ' roll at the time. And Head, of all bands where trendsetters, sort of. Buy it for its uniqueness. The cover is great too!
Lemmy have often decredited it and doesn't seem to agree with my subjective perception of its qualities.
I certainly bught the new deluxe edition. That, however was money down the drain. You can just as wll buy the original verion.Read more ›
I am not a big fan of the twin-guitar line-up. Neither guitarist displayed the ability or finesse shown by Eddie Clarke or Brian Robertson. Together, the two new members produced a noisier sound, and the guitar solos lacked the quality of what had gone before. Having said that, Phil Campbell seemed to improve in later years when the band became a trio once again, with a good grungy rhythm style. His lead guitar solo's however, often sound samey, as though they are made up 'on the spot'.
Still, 'Orgasmatron' had a few good songs which became stage favourites, such as 'Nothing Up My Sleeve (Babe)', with it's references to the late Tommy Cooper's comedy magic act, when he used to say "Just Like That!" Other strong tracks included 'Doctor Rock', and 'Built For Speed'. An earlier version of the latter, with different lyrics, called 'On The Road' was one of two 'Live' B sides from the minor hit single 'Deaf Forever'. The Other B side was 'Steal Your Face', originally on the 'No Remorse' album. Both appear on disc 2 of this edition, along with an alternative version of 'The Claw'.
The weakest tracks are 'Riding With The Driver', and the title track 'Orgasmatron', which some fans seem to like, but I find the 'plodding' rhythm musically uninteresting.Read more ›
