Thumbs up Motorhead - Motorizer

Since the boys are special guests to the 'Head what do people think of the new CD/LP,i think it is a very good record i would give it 8 out of 10.

Yep, I've played a few tracks onthe show over the past few weeks, a great album. 8/10 is where I think it should be sitting as well.

Yep, a top album. Different to the last few in so much as the tracks are more structured (and dare i say it tuneful) but it still packs a mighty punch, much like Another Perfect Day did all those years ago. I have loved every album they have ever released and this one is up there with the best.

My review from their site

My views for what they are worth;

Runaround Man; bit of a riotous opener. Good stuff. Would be exhausting live! Lyrics make no sense whatsoever. 7/10

Teach You How; this is where musical tastes are baffling. Someone else posted that this was rubbish. Best on the albumn IMHO. Top Head Tune. Lets have this in the set list 8/10

When the Eagle; no idea what the opening voice over is about. Sounds like a foreign commentary of the Olympics. It works though. Good track. Lyrics a bit iffy. God knows what the title means but I like it. 7/10

Rock Out; Grows on me. A good stomper. Agian would be a suitable OTT live track. 6/10

One Short Life; I like these bluesy type numbers. Wortha listen for the lyric "even though I'm old and weird now ". LOL 6/10

Buried Alive; albumn goes down here. Does nothing for me. A filler. 1/10 and I bet they play this live!

English Rose; very much like Christine, and I dont like that. Could be a grower mind 2/10

Back on the Chain;; oh dear. Very poor middle bit of albumn with 3 duffers in a row. Chorus Ok. 3/10

Heroes; Unlike others I like this even though its slow. 6/10

Time is Right; Buildingup to the end. Bit dull ancd mediocre. 4/10

1000 Names of God; A good finisher, something thats been lacking recently. 7/10

In conclusion, a solid albumn, but not as good as the last two. Take the first 5 of this album and first 5 off KOD and we would have a real killer of a record.

I dont like the threads saying the set list is the same it has been for 4+ years. Does make me wonder if the band is going through the motions and lost some passion

I guess I dont listen to tons of metal (Mhead, Blaze,Saxon, Tank, AC/DC), but I cant see anyone else producing this sort of music, which is one of the joys.

However Motorizer is up against stiff competition as Blaze Bayleys, Man Who Would Not Die came out recently and that really is the second best (!) albumn this century and I dont think Motorizer will get a look in compared to that.
