      Disadvantages

      The last of the Motörhead classics.

      "Iron Fist" is the 5th studio album by British heavy metal band, Motörhead. It was released in 1982 on Bronze Records and produced by Will Reid Dick and Eddie Clarke. The line-up for the album was Lemmy (vocals/bass), Eddie Clarke (guitar) and Phil Taylor (drums).

      This was the last Motörhead studio album to feature 'Fast' Eddie Clarke on guitar, having being replaced with Brian Robertson for its successor, "Another Perfect Day". The album begins with its titular track, and that's where the band makes a musical error, as it's the best song on the album. After that, it's downhill from there. That's not to say the album isn't any good, because it is a good Motörhead album.

      The main problem I have with this Motörhead album is that it really is the last of the golden days for the band. It was a slow decline down the song quality chain, which really didn't pick up again until the 2000s. Standout songs on the album are the above-mentioned "Iron Fist", along with "(Don't Let 'Em) Grind Ya Down)" and "Speedfreak", while there is also a few slower songs such as "America" and "Loser".

      In summary, Motörhead has always been that kind of band which stands for everything it gives. "Iron Fist" is the album Lemmy probably wishes the band would have made a few years earlier but with some classic Motörhead songs in the mix. It's a good album but, in my opinion, it's not a Motörhead album for that time. Should it be in your collection? Only if you're a fan of the band.
