Hammered shocked me with its sheer brilliance! when i first played the album after buying it on its released date, it was the opening track , "Walk a crooked mile", that really blew me away. It has so many genius touches! like the melodic chorus and the punchy riff that plays along side the verse. All the tracks on this masterpiece are superb. Another one of the highlights is "Brave new world" ehich also has very clever melodic parts and an anthemic chorus. "Doctor love" is another track that stands out. It has a rally good bounce to it that is created by the bouncy guitar riff that opens the song , the chorus's swaying guitars are a masterstroke. "Red raw" is a ferocious song that rips your head off with every note. The darkest song on the album and is also one of the best. "red raw" is the darkest song but the darkest moment on the this record is easily the ending vocal performance by lemmy( Serial killer) who is joined later in the track by WWF wrestler Tripple H. The effect is geniuinely chilling. With hammered Motorhead have managed to create a more melodic , but at the same time a more crunching and ferocious album than the other 17.

Not Classic Motorhead but still a good album - maybe the production in parts could be a little better?
I certainly prefer it to Snake Bite Love - but 2004's Inferno in truth is more consistent!
The song's are not the most immediate but there's still a few nuggets here.
There is one song however that stands out; RED RAW.
This is perhaps the fastest & heaviest track that I have ever heard from this band. It's an absolute juggernaut, in the style of Locomotive, Snaggletooth, Claw & The Hammer. The bass has to be heard to be believed, it fires the song along, dominant in the mix, loud & distorted, it's like the bass line to Ace Of Spades, only 3 times faster!
Added to this are the all out speed metal drums of Mikkey Dee with unrelenting double bass pedals & ferocious riffs from Phil Campbell with a ripping lead break. And of course, Lemmy growls away in style with some of Motorhead's most blood-curdling lyrics ever!

A decent album with Motorhead's best ever 'Speed' track!

an album that some love and some hate , i love it, its melodic in parts but you will find intense anger and hate in 'no remorse' for sure, some have said its too melodic but for once it really works, this is an album of fun and celebration, 'dr love' is a glorious tongue in cheek track and there is much to admire here, , jangly piano pops up but doesnt offend me at all, a great album filled with swagger and joy for sure , oh and spite and hate

Rock 'n' Roll was meant to be played loud. It was meant to be fast. Motorhead understand these facts implicitly, as their seventeenth frenetic studio full-length bears ample witness to. Recorded in Los Angeles by Bob Kulick and Bob Marlette, 'Hammered' seethes with the same hard, raging power that has carried Motorhead through a career that stretches over more than twenty-seven years. As Lemmy himself explains, "there are eleven new tracks on 'Hammered', no cheap posing like most ofthe recent newcomers but real Motorhead numbers that you have to listen to loud".

Once again, with the minimum of fuss Motorhead unleash another drop-dead excellent album on the unsuspecting public! This is not an album of cover versions as some of the titles suggest, this is another origional classic from the band who do it best. 'Walk a crooked mile' opens the set and rips your ears off, check out the cynicism born of experience on 'Brave New World' and marvel at the genius and balls of a group who put a 2minute spoken-word track on the disc to finish it off. This album is packed with solid, fast, mean and noisy rock and roll. Buy it, play it loud and wait for the council to come round and confiscate your stereo!
