Motörhead – Motörizer
Scott sent this record and it blew me away from track one. I love Motörhead. It’s pure metal blues rawk. Of course it is, it’s Motörhead! The first four tracks (Runaround Man, Teach You How To Sing The Blues, When The Eagle Screams and Rock Out) play like a greatest hits collection, and then the record just keeps relentlessly going with great tune after great tune and a blissful rock-out state settles in… I found myself totally impressed by the straight-up and uncompromising sound this band puts forth. For a trio, they make a helluva lot of noise! At high volume (and through the good headphones), this is a masterpiece. This record makes me want to break some stuff and then drive really fast! To where? Does it matter?
Yeah, you could argue that all Motörhead sounds kind of the same. You might not be far wrong, I mean, this is their 19th studio album since 1975 and it sounds like only Motörhead sounds… But a better question is: who cares? When a band rocks this hard and lays down such crushing riffs at such a punishing pace, who really fucking cares? Not me!
Motörhead! Motörhead! Motörhead! Motörhead! Motörhead!…
