We Are Motörhead
Review by Mike Korn
Motörhead is a band I've enjoyed and respected for over 20 years. They have never compromised on their raw blues-soaked heavy metal. Their latest effort continues in that tradition and will please die-hard followers but I must admit this is one of their lesser discs. It adheres too closely to the tried and true and it lacks the vital spark that has characterized most of their material. It's not wimpy in the slightest; (heavens, no) but it's just a little tired. A flat production job doesn't help much and adds to the atmosphere of "going through the motions"
These guys are a classic metal band whose contributions cannot be overlooked. But I think a good vacation might be in order for them. The band on this album is Lemmy (bass and lead vocals), Phil Campbell (lead guitars), and Mikkey Dee (drums).
