Customer Review

on 25 June 2011
Wow! Anybody who still thinks that Ace Of Spades was Motorhead's greatest achievement need to check this album out! The album still does what all their best albums do - loud, dirty rock n roll but this time everything has been pumped up right in your face. It sounds as though, for the first time in a long time, the 'Head have let some modern influences in on their sound. Be it thrash metal on 'Burner' or the Alice In Chains tune-down rifforama of 'Liar' and even closer 'Devils' whose venomous energy spirals magnificently as it closes the the album is great. Even the 12 bar blues songs - here represented by single 'Born To Raise Hell' and 'Bad Woman' seem to have somehow had a facelift to make them sound cutting edge. This is one of those magical albums where you go "What the f@%k was THAT??!!" Before playing it again and again. Motorhead proved they are still as deadly and relevant as ever, especially when you look at the musical landscape of the time - Metallica had gone soft and the World was waiting The Next Big Thing to come along after grunge had followed Cobain to the grave. Motorhead really could and should have stepped up and claimed it but alas, they once again failed again to make headway. Still, with the band currently doing well and finding their niche on the live circuit as legends everything worked out OK in the end! One of my favourite rock albums of all time, go buy it!
