Only the hard core Motorhead fans own all of their albums. For the rest this is the one to get. It has a good selection over a long career of hard rock. After listening to it you’re going to want more.
Import digipak edition with new booklet. Originally released in 1994, the classic Suicidal For Life contains the hit ’Love Vs. Loneliness’, By the time of this album’s release, mainman Mike Muir, alias Cyco Miko, was yearning for the freedom of the indie life once more, and determined that this would be their major-label swansong. And ’Suicidal For Life’ turned out to be one **** of a farewell, not least because the song titles were deliberately peppered with profanities. But Suicidal Tendencies were nothing if not uncompromising. SPV Blue.

I am not a long time Motorhead fan but I am a fan of righteous hard rock from way back. Lemmy and company have been sneaking up on me for the last several years and I finally made the plunge and bought this Best Of.
Killed By Death, Ace of Spades, Dead Men Tell No Tales and the rest are undeniable. These guys are mining the rock and roll mainline, I salute you.
Have to dock it one star because there are essential tracks not included here but all and all, I am well pleased.
I have to say that this is a very well put together compilation of the bands many classic hits.Fans of this great band will not be disappointed at this release because most of all their great songs are found here.METAL RULES!!!
Without Motorhead, there would be no Metallica, Slayer or Testament. It’s pretty obvious. Motorhead laid down the rules for the thrash metal movement that would engulf metal music in the early to mid 80’s. Their music is very fast, very brash punk/metal. I enjoy this band’s approach greatly. This compilation is a good one of early Motorhead. There is only one con: only one song from Ace Of Spades is featured, the title track. Since Ace Of Spades was the band’s most famous work, they should have put at least three songs from it on here. But that is the only con. This is a great beginning to one of metal’s most influential bands. I f you are interested in hearing very early thrash metal, this would be a perfect choice.
There is an EXCELLENT selection of tracks from Motorhead’s early albums on this CD. I was especially pleased that “Stay Clean” is included, (it is omitted from the 40-track Best of Motorhead released in 2002).If you want an economical way to collect Motorhead’s best material, then this is the way to go. You will not be disappointed by what you find here!
