  • This release by motorhead is plenty of fuel and venom. This album is played with ferocious rhythm as typified by almost all tracks contained.
    One more motorhead album that stands out in heavy metal world, this album is one of the greatest motorhead one.

    This album carries on Fantastic songs with a range of paces but all strong. “I’m So Bad (Baby I Don’t Care)” “No Voices In The Sky” “Going to Brazil”

    That’s a great job done by Lemmy and their guys. You should have it with your collection of fantastic heavy metal albums. A classical album I recommend to everybody.

  • This was one of the first Motorhead albums I heard as a kid and while it is a tad different than most other raw hardcore Motorhead albums it still delivers big time. Ihave never understood why there was so much hate for this album at the time.

  • Motorhead’s “1916″ is a little different than their older classics such as Bomber or Overkill. While you get the fast and hard-rocking numbers such as “The One to Sing the Blues” and “Make my Day,” you’ll also see some experimentation with songs like “Nightmare/The Dreamtime.” This doesn’t take anything away from it at all though, and this album rocks as hard as anything else they’ve ever done. Another thing I must note, is that the title track will leave you feeling a little sad, but in a good way. It is that amazing.

    If you like Motorhead, and already own “Bomber,” “Overkill,” and/or “Ace of Spades,” get this album. It’s a pleasant surprise that deserves its place in any fan’s collection.

  • Motorhead was big in Europe throughout the late 70’s and 80’s but did not make much of a dent here in the U.S. Even their seminal early 80’s album “Ace Of Spades” never charted on this side of the pond. By the end of the decade though, Motorhead had developed a solid cult following in the States, and “1916″ would prove to be the band’s highest charting album up until their current resurgence in 2008. The single “I’m So Bad Baby I Don’t Care” even managed to get some airplay on American rock radio. The album also features several songs that have become concert staples (“One To Sing The Blues”, and “Going To Brazil”) over the years. This is really kind of a unique album for Motorhead as they move out of their hard rock comfort zone here and there, dabbling in electronics and keyboards with “Nightmare / The Dreamtime”, and of all things a ballad about a soldier in WWI with the title track “1916″. In fact it is this track that really sets this album apart. Lemmy actually sings on this one, (instead of his usual growl) and it is a great little portrait of the horrors of war. Other highlights include “No Voices In The Sky”, “Angel City” and “Love Me Forever” with a killer guitar solo from Phil Campbell. My only complaint about this album is the recording. Sonically this thing sounds like it was recorded in a tin can. There is very little bottom end and listening to this on a good stereo system can really be distracting. Other than that I think this is one of the band’s best studio efforts. If you are a fan of Motorhead, this one should be in your collection, but it could use a good remastering.
