Best of Motorhead Album Review


"That's the way I like it, baby. I don't wanna live forever." One exhausting run through Motorhead's defining sturm und klang, The Best of Motorhead spews all the necessities: the excruciating "Killed by Death," the signature "Ace of Spades," the raging "Rock 'n' Roll," the crushing "Iron Fist," road kill from the blistering live classic No Sleep 'Til Hammersmith, plus the state-of-the-art "Orgasmatron." Nary a single dud dwells among 73 bone-crushing minutes. Motorhead's breakneck oeuvre is surprisingly and consistently strong, and this devastating precis makes a perfect starting place: beautiful in its ugliness, and exhausting only because of the extreme intensity of one of the greatest, most-underrated bands of all time.
