New to Motorhead and this ALBUM rocks
Was checking out television and watched a Motorhead concert and really dug it. Being honest I always wanted to check out Motorhead, sooo being a fan of live music I downloaded this album from iTunes and it totally blew my shorts off. I love the heavy no-bs approach to just good old fashioned rock-n-roll. I agree with the other reviewer, if you do not like Motorhead, download it anyway and you will be hooked. Ah, and do not be afraid to play it LOUD!
Faster and Louder Kiddies....
Lemmy and his crew are as aggressive as ever on Motorhead's 30th anniversary show at Hammersmith. Lemmy's bass playing is more front and center on this record; the overall sound is razor-wire tense and punkish unlike the thunderhammer wallop of Everything Louder Than Everything Else. Some fantastic moments include a brutal version of In The Name of Tragedy, gleaming revisions of I Got Mine and Dancing On Your Grave(both high points, the latter features Phil Campbell in devastating form), Mikkey Dee's drum solo on Sacrifice (what's keeping him upright at this point?), the double wallop of both Shoot You in the Back and Love Me Like a Reptile, the grunge-blues sludge of Jus Cos' You Got The Power(again Phil Campbell playing magnificently), and the closing fury of Bomber/Ace of Spades/Overkill. Lordy...and I always thought veteran metal bands were supposed to lose their power as time goes on....Motorhead just seem to increase in power...maybe Lemmy really isn't human after all!
Motorhead are at their best live
There have been some good Motorhead live releases, and some not so go Motorhead live releases. This release ranks among the best of them. The only show I’ve heard that was better was 2006’s Stage Fright DVD performance. They are Motorhead, and they play rock n’ roll - - like no other!
One of the best versions of Ace of Spades I've ever heard, and RAMONES is a great tribute to a great band. Buy this album if you like rock, and if you don't, buy it anyway!
i dont realy like it but....i am the first so buy it if u like it and never stop rocking
