  • “Another Perfect Day”, in my very humble opinion, is one metal’s great lost treasures. After the departure of “Fast Eddie” Clarke, Lemmy and Phil called upon ex-Thin Lizzy guitarist Brian Robertson who, for this album, gave Motorhead a new melodic direction without compromising any of their crushing power. Robertson offers axework on tunes like “Back at the Funny Farm”, “Shine”, “Dancing on Your Grave”, “I Got Mine” and “One Track Mind” that’s nothing short of searing. Of course, Lemmy and Phil put in some of their best performances, contrasting with Robertson’s more melodic style with rock-solid, take-no-prisoners bass and drums. Not to mention Lemmy’s trademark growl. The live version of “Hoochie Coochie Man” alone is worth the price of the CD. Plus, there are excellent liner notes on Robertson’s short stay with Motorhead. Alas, (or thankfully, depending on your point of view) this was to be Robertson’s only album with the band. Fans didn’t quite take to him, and Robertson didn’t go out of his way to endear himself to them or the band. Too bad.
