Product Description

Rock 'N' Roll is the eighth album by Motörhead and the first appearance of their four-piece line up of Lemmy, Phil "Philthy Animal" Taylor, Würzel and Phil Campbell, which lasted from 1987 until 1992. The song "Eat the Rich" was written for Peter Richardson's 1987 film Eat the Rich which starred the regular cast of The Comic Strip and Lemmy himself in a bit part as "Spider."

Brilliant album. No question Mickey Dee is technically a better drummer than Philthy but he over complicates stuff. Lemmy says Mickey is the best drummer he's played with.... True but the band sound better overall with philthy. This was his last album with the band and largely down to his drumming it really rocks your socks off. Feels more rock than thrash. If you're a fan of the band looking to complete or beef out your collection, this should be near the top of your next purchase list. The best tracks for me are "Dogs" the title track "Rock 'n' Roll" and "All for you". The production is excellent the band are really cooking on these and the rhythmic section of the band sounds like it's at it's best for my taste. Tracks like "traitor" are also excellent, Motorhead hasn't forgotten what they are known for so die hard fans needn't worry! I'm a rocker into ac/dc, led zeppelin etc and this album has something for every sub genre of rock fan out there.

1987's `Rock `n' Roll' album is considered by Lemmy as one of the bands weaker albums, and I'd have to agree. After the excellent `Orgasmatron', the band rushed back into the studio and seemed to spent even less time on the production of the album. Whereas `Orgasmatron' was weirdly lacking in guitars in places (especially considering that it was the bands first twin guitar album) the bass and drums still sounded excellent, but `Rock `n' Roll' sounds just thin and in places unbearably weedy. Oh well, you know the general pattern of Motörhead albums...a weak one then a strong one.

The song writing on `Rock `n' Roll' seems stagnant in comparison to the fresh and daring ideas seen on `Another Perfect Day' and `Orgasmatron', the riffs and song structures seem a little too predictable. Ok, past works such as `No Class' or `Jailbait' were predictable but some of the songs on `Rock `n' Roll' are lacking in that certain class (see what I did there?). However, it's of note that there are some classic Motörhead anthems on this album...just as any other Motörhead album. Two of these are actually b-sides (if you own the re-mastered version, which I can recommend as its got two songs on it that are better than most of the album), these being `Cradle to the Grave' which is simple but very well done, a underrated and overlooked song and `Just 'Cos You Got The Power' which has been in the live set for the past 20 years and although this version is not the best, it's still a corker, slow and bluesy with some great defiant lyrics from Lem. On the actual album itself the title track stands out as a immediate winner, the sort of thing Motörhead have done over and over again.

This isn't a bad album by any stretch, but somehow or other, this album would 9 times out of 10 find itself placed in the lower half (or even lower quarter) of Motorhead's significant back catalogue by most fans. When you listen to the album from start to finish, you start wondering why. There is nothing massively wrong with this album, the production is ok (not amazing), the songs are pretty strong, the riffs are there, Lemmy sounds as gravelly as ever and the lyrics (whilst being a bit cheesy at times) is still nonetheless vintage Motorhead.
The tempo is one thing that stands out however, this is probably one of the Head's slowest overall albums, and for a band credited for more or less creating speed and thrash metal this is somewhat of a big departure, it doesn't make it lose any marks for this but it is noticeably slower than normal. It's also noticeable for featuring Motorhead's first glaringly obvious love song in 'All For You' and the return of 'Philthy Animal' Taylor to the drumkit.
That being said, there are plenty of up-tempo moments such as the brilliant 'The Wolf' and 'Blackheart.'
The title track, 'Dogs,' 'Traitor,' and 'Stone Deaf In The USA' are all great songs, but they all feel like there's something missing somehow.
Ironically or indicatively, the one song that has stuck to this day as being a regular on Motorhead's set list is the B-Side of lead single 'Eat The Rich' : 'Just Cos You Got The Power' - which is a really great song with a memorable bluesy riff, a catchy chorus and clever, relatable lyrics - which are probably more relevant today than they've ever been!
I guess 'Rock 'N' Roll' is a really great album that suffers by comparing it to the fantastic back catalogue that preceded and followed it.

"Rock n roll" is one of many Motorhead albums that often get overlooked. It arrived at a time when the band were seen to be in decline and was the album before what is seen as their "comeback", "1916". That`s pretty ironic as I like this album better. Yes, the production is weak and the tracklist doesn`t read like classic Motorhead but there are plenty of goodies here. "Traitor", "Dogs" and "Rock n roll" itself are probably the best of the bunch, not forgetting the lunacy of "Eat the rich" (an idea so good Aerosmith stole it). Also the bonkers sermon by Michael Palin of Monty Python, which only a band like Motorhead could get away with. The two bonus tracks are really great and it makes you wonder why they were left off the album in favour of duffers like "Blackheart" or "All for you". An extra star for the inclusion of those two songs on a CD with a title that really sums up what Motorhead are all about.
