Over the past 30 years, our world has been graced with the beauty that is Motorhead. Each album released has had moments of brilliance and excellence. And Motorizer is no different. The riffs are typical of Motorhead, heavy, fast and generally awesome. Lemmy's voice has failed to change much over the years, he's still on top form with his instantly recognisable growls and raspy vocals. For fans of classic Motorhead, this will not be a disappointment.
"Rock Out," the only song released as a single from the album tells of what rock and this album is about, rocking out and having a great time.
"Runaround Man," the first track on the album is a heavy yet catchy as hell song, you'll be singing the lyrics for a long time once you hear them yet the guitaring is as good as ever, turning from brutal to soloing and shredding.
These two songs are the ones that I personally love. Other stand out tracks are "English Rose," "When the Eagle Screams" and "Time is Right."
This album is one for any Motorhead fan, whether you're an original fan or a new listener. I would rate this my favourite release of 2008, it's generally a flawless album.
Motorizer is the 2008 album of Motorhead. Released by Steamhammer / SPV, amazingly it is the band's 19th album and with Lemmy at the age of 62, it's astonishing that he's still as full of energy and the music is as angry as ever.
Of course it is full of trademark Motorhead sounds and the fast pace combined with Lemmy's sore throat sound does make several tracks sound quite similar but it's as good a material that the band have produced in recent years and is full of top drawer guitar work.
For fans of Motorhead this is a must have and they'll no doubt put it up there as a legendary album. One thing very noticeable about this album is that it has a very fast punky outlook and is short and sweet about what it wants to say. Lyrically it's very good and "The Thousand Names of God" is a superb track about how soldiers are conned in to the army to aid only businessmen! What a classy track! My only criticism of this album is that a lot of the tracks musically sound similar and therefore it is not my best album of the year but is a bloody good one all the same!
