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.

  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:)

  Ace of spades is one of the few albums, that never gets old!! Every song is legendary and memorable. Every Heavy metal fan should own this album.
