I bought this as my first Motorhead album. It was a flashback to when I was 14 and metal ruled the world. However, even then Motorhead was never quite as accepted as more ‘main-stream’ metal bands, like Iron Maiden and Judas Priest. Still, Motorhead tended to rock harder, as if to say,”You’re more popular, but we’re still going to kick your tails!”
On to the album: If you have the ‘Best Of’ collection, there’s not much need for this one. All the big hits found here are there, plus Best Of features even more. NO REMORSE is only necessary if you’re looking for some neat tracks not found elsewhere.
It’s fun to hear Wendy O. Williams join the boys on a cover of No Class and a rousing version of ‘Stand By Your Man’. And Snaggletooth is a bonifide rocker. However, the rest of the stuff is found on Best Of, and with better production.
So, if you’re a die-hard rounding out your collection, go for this one. IF you’re a newbie looking for a good place to get started, go for the Best Of compilation.
