Motorhead: Motorizer

Though they are 20+ albums into their career, Motorhead show no signs of slowing down here on their latest Motorizer. As has been the case from day one, almost ever Motorhead album is a slice of fun, trashing, punk enflected heavy metal, and this one is no exception. At this point in time, it's probably too much to ask for the band to come up with another classic along the lines of Ace of Spades, Overkill, Bomber, or Iron Fist, but Motorizer is just as good as any of their releases since the late 80's, chock full of energized rockers such as "Runaround Man", "Rock Out", "Buried Alive", and "When The Eagle Screams", all manic, groove laced numbers with no shortage of Lemmy's rocket fueled bass lines, pounding drums, meaty guitar riffs, and memorable hooks. Lemmy's vocals have not changed one bit over the years, his nasaly drawl on tunes like the bluesy "Back On The Chain" or the speed metal "Time Is Right" sound like it was taken straight out of the 80's. The best is saved for last, the exceptional "The Thousand Names Of God", a real churning hard rocker that sounds almost like a leftover from the underrated Another Perfect Day release.

While Motorizer is not going to make any Motorhead non-believer want to suddenly welcome this band with open arms, it's still a solid entrant into their now well-stocked discography of hard rock staples.
