Guest review by
The words "Ace Of Spades" are written proudly on one of the dirtiest, toughest and meanest Motorhead albums ever! If you haven't had your ears soiled by this beautifully impure masterpiece, then prepare to have them blown off!

This was the record that got a whole generation of young lads brandishing tennis rackets and riffing as hard as possible whilst jumping madly on their bed! Although their earlier album " Bomber" didn't do a great deal for the band, "Ace Of Spades" got their name out there, and sealed Motorheads reputation as one of the loudest and heaviest bands in the world.

So this turned 40 years old this week... so pour yourself a pint of Jack & Coke and crank it up. (Didn't feel any additional text to pimp or promote the album was needed. Either you have it and love it or may the Ghost of Lemmy stalk you forever.)

I never get tired of this album. Every song is full to the brim with rock'n'roll energy, and i can always sing alogn to every song on the album, including the three bonus tracks. One of the greatest albums of any era in music history to be honest:)

Motorhead is the best band from the UK. All other UK bands wish to be like motorhead, in fact all other metal bands wish they were motorhead, thank motorhead for bringing a fresh take to what the boring homies of Black Sabbath had started.
You are not metal enough until you visit Kenya. The cradle of mankind, where man learnt first to work with stones and first enjoyed the sounds produced by banging stones which later influenced metal in all its sounds and genres.
