Customer Review

VINE VOICEon 23 September 2007
This was the first Motorhead album I ever purchased, so it may account to why I am so partial to it, but despite having since purchased several others 'We Are Motorhead' remains my favourite of the bands albums. A drum roll kicks off the frenzied riffing of 'See Me Burning' and the intensity of the album doesn't really lay off until the final title track (with it's cheeky re-use of 'Ace of Spades' riff) is over. For (let's face it) an aging band Motorhead sound full of energy, and every one of the songs manages to combine distorted extremity with some catchy hooks and choruses. Most of the tracks are pacy numbers, but 'Slow Dance' and 'Wake The Dead' break things up by being slower heavier tunes. There's even a mid-album ballad with 'One More F#cking Time', but don't let the sound of that put you off, as this is still a great song. If there is a weak moment on the album it's the cover of 'God Save The Queen' - it's not awful, but it's inferior to the Sex Pistols original version, Lemmy mangles the lyrics, and it all seems a little pointless - but this one slightly sub-par moment can't stop this being an immense album. Essential to all fans of extreme and heavy music.
