And so it begins, what I like to think of as the second Motorhead era, all remnants of the past (besides Lemmy) have left the band; no Philthy, no Fast Eddie, and no Brian Robertson. Philthy Animal Taylor being replaced by ex-Saxon stickman Pete Gill, and Brian 'Robo' Robertson being replaced by 2 guitarists; Michael "Würzel" Burston and the current guitarist Phil Campbell (this also marks the begining of the 5 album dual-guitar era of Motorhead). This album shows for the first time that Lemmy is able to write a good album with none of the original members.

Staff pick by

30.12.2015 Year was 1990. Buddy and I rented a car near the Navy Base. It had a tape deck, so we stopped by a music store and he bought this tape. Over the course of our weekend Rent-A-Wreck adventures, he altered the lyrics of the title track to "I am the one, <insert bitter's real name here> son, the outstretched gaping image is of agony, my servants rape the land."

This beer's for you, Lemmy. (with a toast to Worsham, should he ever randomly stumble on this site.)

  Third track is "Ain't My Crime". The Tracklist is not complete.
Angelic Storm - 02.08.2010 at 12:36  
  Yep, "Claw" and "Mean Machine" are the 2 tracks missing from the tracklist. lol

This is one of the best Motorhead albums IMO. "Deaf Forever" and "Mean Machine" are my faves from it though.

Rating: 9 Fucking great album to rock out to, and that title track is monstrous. Not their heaviest album, but certainly one of their best in terms of songwriting\m/

  Very excellent album. The title track is a monster and the other tracks are outstanding too.

Rating: 8 Doctor rock blew all the excitement, until the first riff of the title track
Lit. - 22.09.2013 at 08:27  
  The first and last track are the freaking shit.

But what IS the claw?

Well this is a meme I never knew existed.

Rating: 8 I've forgotten how great this album was. Catchy as fuck
Alex F - 05.09.2015 at 20:08  
Rating: 8 The lyrics to the title track are just so fucking good (as is the music). Probably the best Motorhead album in my opinion
Cynic Metalhead - 03.01.2016 at 17:44  
Rating: 8 I agree with Alex.

One of the finest records ever produce by Motorhead. Still listen on my pad. Post-Lemmy passing, this record got more special.
Maco - 04.01.2016 at 10:07  
Rating: 8 Almost all their records got more special.
