Best live sound ever for Motorhead,
This review is from: Stage Fright [DVD]  (DVD)
I've been following this lot since 'Overkill'. Their ferocious live shows have always suffered badly on the official releases due to poor reproduced sound. Tinny like 'No Sleep..', poorly mixed like 'Boneshaker' or distorted like 'Everything Louder...' etc.
Here the sound is pristine, for the first time ever you can hear every thundering bass chord and note from Lemmys custom Rickenbacker revealing what an underated and totally unique bass player he is. The mix is spacious and clear.
The band are super tight and up for it. New songs like 'In The Name of Tragedy' and 'Killers' prove their pedigree and relevance in the 30th anniversary year. These sit alongside excellent renditions of old and mid-season classics like 'Metropolis', 'Going to Brazil', 'RAMONES' etc whilst 'Whorehouse Blues' is a nice change of pace.
Only minor criticism is I really wish they would drop 'Killed By Death' - naff song, naff tune and its been around far too long but thats probably just me!
If you want one live Motorhead show this is it.
