  • This is a very similar album to Iron Fist, in the sense that it too was the follow-up of an absolute classic Motorhead album (Overkill cq Ace of Spades), in the sense that it too was thrown on the market too hastily and in the sense that it too contains too many fillers to be a really strong album. Sad but true, it was this sloppiness in putting out records that explains to a large degree why Motorhead never became as big as Maiden or Priest.

    This said, three of the best Motortunes ever are on this CD. The live sensation Bomber, the awesome Stone Dead Forever (in my top-5 of all-time best Motorhead songs), and the slow paced, chilling Lawman should feature in every metal / punk / rock enthousiast’s iPod collection. Enough reasons to buy the CD? Sure, but not before you’ve bought Overkill, Ace of Spades, Another Perfect Day, Inferno, On Parole and Orgasmatron.

  • Motorhead was probably the nastiest, loudest and bombastic band to ever emerge from the British punk scene, although they are not a punk band per se. What attracted metal fans and punks alike was a stripped down fast loud approach to balls-to-the-wall rock and roll – punky spirit with metal’s chops.
    ‘Bomber’, the third assault by this three man panzer division, is a must have for those who still prefer the old classic lineup days with Fast Eddie Clarke and Philthy Animal Taylor alongside Lemmy Kilmister, now the only original member left.
    Clarke especially gave Motorhead its signature sound with huge fat guitars and bluesy leads that added some class to the mix. Not that this meant Motorhead were anything but fast, loud and crude. It is incredible to remember that 1979 saw ‘Overkill’ and ‘Bomber’ in the stores alongside disco, the BeeGees, and other horrible acts too numerous to mention.
    “Stone Dead Forever” and the title track are just two gems on this punishing CD. Fans will delight to the retakes and live cuts on the bonus CD, which sound better than the bonus tracks on ‘Ironfist’. It’s migraine inspiring, rude and perfect for ruining anybody’s day who isn’t a Motorheadbanger.

  • There’s no such thing as a bad Motorhead album. The original line up with fast Eddie and Philthy is impossible to beat in the heavy metal realm. Bomber is my least favorite of the Eddie/Phil classic era, but it’s still a freakin’ fantastic record. I like Ace of Spades, Over Kill, and Iron Fist better, but this is also a must have for Motor heads.

    Standout tracks: Dead Men Tell No Tales, Stone Dead Forever

  • this album by no means has the speed of “overkill” or “ace of spades” but “bomber” has the grooviest, hook laden motorhead songs ever devised, just listen to “sharp shooter” or “lawman” to see what i mean, motorheads best songwritting is on hear.
    this album prooves speed isn’t everything, even for a band like motorhead, don’t get me wrong, there are a couple fast ones but this album isn’t based on speed like “overkill” or “ace of spades” was, its more about songwritting and cathy riffs. this is by far motorheads best album, this is the only thing from them i need, and i consider myself a fan too. lemmy fr***ing rocks on this “like a sniper, i got my sights on you!, windsheild wiper, nothing spoiling my view!” where else can you hear something like that now? even on a m’head record, gotta love that now. this album just has a different feel to it then any thing they have done before or after this, this came out in late 79, why doesn’t this album get attention like ace or overkill do? my final verdict is that while “bomber” might not be as fast as “overkill” “ace of spades” or “iron fist” it makes up for it whith some of the best motorhead songs ever written like “all the aces” and “stone dead forever” amoung others, lemmy is a true lawman, rock on!

  • Originally released in 1979,’Bomber’ was Lemmy and crew’s second album.Basically another top-of-the-heap serving of British metal-punk(as some might call it).Heck,I’ll always refer to it as heavy metal.No matter what you tag it as,it’s prime Motorhead;ALL the freakin’ way,mate!Key tracks include “Dead Men Tell No Tales”,”Sharpshooter”(perhaps,a love song?),my favorite “Stone Deaf Forever”,the title cut “Bomber” and “Leaving Here”.This reissue tags on five(5)beloved bonus songs to lure us to purchase a copy.Pretty sneaky,eh?Recommended.
