This review is from: Bomber (Audio CD)
This could be Motorhead's finest hour - if you like your 80's rock heavier than hell. This is the best line-up, the classic 3 piece with Fast Eddie and Philthy Phil Taylor. Classic 'Head gig fave's like "Stone Dead Forever" and "Over the Top" line up with "Dead men smell toe nails!" - as Lemmy introduced it at The Bingley Hall on the Bomber tour in 1980. It could be argued that "Overkill" is a better album, but "Bomber" really put the Motor boys on the rock map. They toured heavily all the time, but the Bomber tour was spectacular with the Bomber suspended above the stage. It nearly killed them one gig when it broke it's moorings in Germany, but that's another story. Great album, great band.
