disappointed, i followed reviews of fans when trying this band. i saw that they toured with Dream Theater and was expecting at least an iota of progressive elements! however, these guys are so aggressive that they should be in an asylum rather than a studio!
2008 digitally remastered and expanded two CD edition of the British Rock band’s classic live set, originally released in 1981. Motorhead’s No Sleep ’Til Hammersmith captured the band at its earth-shattering, genre-forming peak. Skyrocketing to #1 when it was originally released, No Sleep is one of the best live albums of all time, capturing the live high-octane impact of the legendary power trio line-up (Lemmy, ’Fast’ Eddie, and Philthy ’Animal’ Taylor). No Sleep… was already an astounding live album to begin with, but this expanded double disc version adds more tracks, more power and more Lemmy for the ultimate Motorhead live experience! 29 tracks. Sanctuary.No Sleep ’Til Hammersmith is a definitive metal document, with Motörhead’s Lemmy, Fast Eddie, and Philthy Animal Taylor captured in their full-on chaotic glory across Britain’s sweat pits in 1981. From the opening body rush of ”Ace of Spades,” with Lemmy’s gravel-gargling voice raw and blasted all to hell, to Fast Eddie sending out mercurial shards of guitar, to the closing ”Bomber” and ”Motörhead,” this is a live album second to none. Lemmy would break all four bass strings on the evening’s opening chord; fans would need to be restrained from carving grooves into the floor with their heads. Metal should be a vicarious thrill, a sudden rush of blood and noise, and No Sleep more than fills those roles. For Motörhead fans with serious cranium damage, this 20-year anniversary edition also contains a bonus CD of outtakes from the same tour, including second versions of (an even heavier) ”No Class” and Lemmy’s ode to all things gross, beer-bellied, and sweaty, ”(We Are) the Road Crew.” Absolutely bloody essential. –Everett True

By far one of the best bands around today. Their music is so incredibly written and so technical at the same time. For people that don’t like growling if you can learn to at least live with it you will be in utter tranquility listening to BTBAM.
The driving force behind Between The Buried And Me’s second masterpiece comes from Tommy Rogers bizarre and creative song lyrics, Paul Waggoner’s amazing guitar riffs and Mark Castillo’s superb drumming. Please do not label this band as a metal band, because they stray as far away from a typical metal band as ever thought possible. Tempo changes galore, most songs are just constantly shifting metalcore riffs and beats, it’s all insane, but it does slow down in the middle of the album to deliver an amazing acoustic-driven ballad, then launching again into full blown metalcore chaos. It is unlike anything you’ll ever hear because these guys are just such great musicians. This re-release includes a DVD with a full BTBAM concert in North Carolina, their hometown, plus most of their music videos. If you consider yourself a fan of hard music, then you should most definitely own this album.
