  • Lemmy must have been into heavy doses of the Ramones while recording this album, because his love for the band is quite evident throughout “Motorizer”. In fact there is a fast paced, “punk” rock vibe to many of the songs here in the “Goin’ To Brazil” & “R.A.M.O.N.E.S” vein. “Rock Out” does exactly what it promises and then some. Mickey Dee’s drumming propels the album from start to finish without pause (no slowed down ballads here). Dee is arguably the best drummer in rock/metal and he proves it here. And friggin’ Phil, the man never ceases to amaze me; his playing just keeps getting better. Phil takes his own chops, blends in a wee-wee bit of Chuck Berry, a heavy dose of Thin Lizzy era Brian Robertson (Phil’s wah wah pedal tone is killer on this album) and consequently churns out guitar solos and fills that are short, sweet and very wicked. Then you have Lemmy…..’nuff said. I am a longtime fan dating back to the vinyl days. I would hesitate to put “Motorizer” up there with classics like “Overkill” and “Ace Of Spades”, but it is darn close.
    A great place to start for a newcomer to the band and a definite “add to cart” for current Motorhead fans.
