Motorhead - Overkill
on 5 December 2010
I've been a little slow with the Motorhead cannon, I've seen them a couple of times but I only own five of their albums. God knows why it took me as long as it did to buy this one. For music released in 1979 it still sounds fresh today - WAY ahead of its time! Dirty, bluesy, straight up rock, and 36 minutes of it at that.
Many will heard the title track 'Overkill' and 'No Class', but that's not to say they're the standout tracks, as that could imply other songs on the album are weak in comparison. Not so - the whole album stands out, but none of the songs sound samey.
Like I said, the album clocks out after 36 minutes. All of the songs are between 2 and 5 minutes long, most of them just under 3 minutes, but I'm not complaining, and neither would you. Just whack it on again, with a little extra volume. Bloody class!
