  • I bought this along time ago on cassette. I enjoyed listening to it and I am looking forward went the new 2 disc edition is released. The songs and musicship is very good and it was good to see Philty back on drums.
    The songs I liked were Traitor, Dogs and Rock N Roll. All for You could of and should of been radio bound. Overall another excellent Motorhead album.

  • This album did not receive the bestreviews at the time of its release but, looking back with hindsight, it’s clear it’s a very good album.This is the album that brought back Philty Taylor on drums, and they still had Wurzel and Campbell on guitars. So, it’s a EXTREMELY heavy album. THe punk ; rock swing is almost gone, it’s just sheer weight! The lyrics are, as usual, very good.

  • The rock, the whole rock, and nothing but the rock. ROCK ‘N’ ROLL has none of the duds that clutter IRON FIST and BOMBER, no filler (ORGASMATRON), and no power ballads (1916, MARCH OR DIE). The disc is worth buying for “Eat the Rich” alone, but you will also want to crank up “Rock and Roll,” “The Wolf,” and “Boogeyman.” My one complaint is that this record is too good; it has spoiled me for the rest of Wurzel-era Motorhead.

  • This album seems to get slogged a lot by both critics and fans as one of Motorhead’s weaker releases. In fact classic rock magazine listed this one as the band’s worst albums in a recent issue. I am not sure why it gets such a bad rap. No, I don’t think this is the band’s best, but it is a decent Motorhead album with some great songs. “Rock N Roll”, “Eat The Rich”, and Stone Deaf In The USA” are all classic Motorhead tracks and contain pretty much everything you want from Lemmy and the boys. The rest of the disc is pretty typical Motorhead shenanigans, but all decent stuff. “Rock N Roll” may not be essential, but I don’t think that it deserves the reputation that it has received.

  • Wow, I can’t believe nobody else has reviewed this classic. I feel compelled to write a quick review for it after reading another reviewer cutting on it elsewhere. This is one of my top five Motorhead albums (if not top three), and I own most of Motorhead’s albums. “Eat The Rich”, “Rock N’ Roll”, “Stone Deaf in the USA”, “Boogeyman”, “Blackheart”, “All For You”, and the rest of this monster all rock and rock hard. Why any Motorhead fan would rip on this masterpiece just boggles the mind. I don’t have the newest edition yet so I can’t say anything about the bonus tracks, but I wore out my cassette and a copy I made off the LP and I still love to hear these songs. Lemmy is at his raunchy, nasty best on several songs, yet shows intelligence and lyrical range on other tracks. If I were to introduce someone to the genius of Lemmy and Motorhead I would not hesitate to crank up this slab of greatness…
