"Get Back In Line" from the new album The World Is Yours

Biography

Motörhead have never JUST been the best rock'n'roll band in the world. They've never JUST been the loudest. Or the hardest. Or the toughest. Or the bad-ass-est. No...Motörhead are also a lifestyle.

Motörhead are a mindset, a belief, a way to live your life, a way to both survive and beat a society that sometimes seems intent on grinding you down.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lemmy delivers December 29, 2003
Format:Audio CD
People can say what they want, but 1916 is a GREAT Motorhead album. It's all here, simple fast riffs, sense of humor, Lemmy's roaring and catchy tunes. "Voices in the Sky" has a great melody is very tight. Could you imagine for a moment flying on an airplane to the land of sex and sunshine? Check out "Going to Brazil" and you'll get the idea. The RAMONES tribute is awesome, I loved the fact that there was no guitar solo. The standout track though is the closing 1916. Rarely can 'beautiful' be used to describe a Motorhead track, but Lemmy nailed it. With just a drum and an oboe, he sings of the terrors of the 1916 'Great Offensive'. Years ago I thought this to be a very strange thing for Lemmy to do, but Lemmy knows best. This song has stood. I wonder if he ever had the balls to do it live.

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly good March 30, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I remember when this came out. It was a real "turning of the page" for Motorhead. The production was crisper. The songs were better. The guitars fuller. Of course, Lemmy's voice has never been great, but it wasn't as rough this outing.

Many metal-heads hate this album because it's not just in your face, screaming guitar-fare. This has more depth than that. Oh, there's are plenty of rockers here (I'll Sing the Blues and Going to Brazil are real standouts), but there's more. The Ramones tribute song (R.A.M.O.N.E.S) is fun and the best non-Ramones Romones song. And the title track is quite moving. Lemmy's normally offensive voice manages to lend more to the ballad here than detract from it, as if it helps to paint the brutal story of the song.

So, do yourself a favor and buy this one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Motorhead - Lemmy Actually Sings! November 7, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Motorhead was big in Europe throughout the late 70's and 80's but did not make much of a dent here in the U.S. Even their seminal early 80's album "Ace Of Spades" never charted on this side of the pond. By the end of the decade though, Motorhead had developed a solid cult following in the States, and "1916" would prove to be the band's highest charting album up until their current resurgence in 2008. The single "I'm So Bad Baby I Don't Care" even managed to get some airplay on American rock radio. The album also features several songs that have become concert staples ("One To Sing The Blues", and "Going To Brazil") over the years. This is really kind of a unique album for Motorhead as they move out of their hard rock comfort zone here and there, dabbling in electronics and keyboards with "Nightmare / The Dreamtime", and of all things a ballad about a soldier in WWI with the title track "1916". In fact it is this track that really sets this album apart. Lemmy actually sings on this one, (instead of his usual growl) and it is a great little portrait of the horrors of war. Other highlights include "No Voices In The Sky", "Angel City" and "Love Me Forever" with a killer guitar solo from Phil Campbell. My only complaint about this album is the recording. Sonically this thing sounds like it was recorded in a tin can. There is very little bottom end and listening to this on a good stereo system can really be distracting. Other than that I think this is one of the band's best studio efforts. If you are a fan of Motorhead, this one should be in your collection, but it could use a good remastering.

5.0 out of 5 stars Motorhead throws a wild curve November 26, 2006
Format:Audio CD
While I remain loyal to the Eddie Clarke era of Motorhead, I must admit "1916" is as good as latter period Motorhead ever got.

The production is much better, with plenty of loud guitars and drums. If there is a weak spot, it would be that Wurzel and Co. are pretty generic players. The profiency is there, but not much originality exists.

To make up for that weakness, which has plagued all post-Clarke releases, with the exception of "Another Perfect Day", Lemmy throws in a keyboard heavy "Nighttime", an honest-to-God power ballad ("Love Me Forever"), a Ramones tribute, and most shocking of all, the title track and album closer, "1916".

Lemmy is a well-known war historian, definitely nobody's dummy, and here he laments a particularly horrible battle in WWI where 10,000 soldiers died before noon with neither side gaining an inch of ground. Set to a lonely mournful organ and a snare drum, Lemmy sings in a clear voice and by song's end, it's damn hard not to get a lump in your throat the first couple times you hear it, so surprising is the music, yet so perfect.

For this track and the stretching out of musical boundaries that Lemmy undertakes on "1916", it is an essential for Motorhead fans.

Motorhead's "1916" is a little different than their older classics such as Bomber or Overkill. While you get the fast and hard-rocking numbers such as "The One to Sing the Blues" and "Make my Day," you'll also see some experimentation with songs like "Nightmare/The Dreamtime." This doesn't take anything away from it at all though, and this album rocks as hard as anything else they've ever done. Another thing I must note, is that the title track will leave you feeling a little sad, but in a good way. It is that amazing.

If you like Motorhead, and already own "Bomber," "Overkill," and/or "Ace of Spades," get this album. It's a pleasant surprise that deserves its place in any fan's collection.
