If the world faces nuclear disaster, the only surivors will be cockroaches and Lemmy. Lemmy will find the two most talented cockroaches and another strong Motorhead line-up will rock the apocalypse. The most consistent band in rock 'n roll history offers us "Everything Louder Than Everyone Else," and it makes sense that their definitive statement is a live album. Motorhead makes excellent studio albums, but the heart of this band lies on stage and here is the proof. Thank God this current line-up has been together for a good 7 or 8 years now, as it may be Motorhead's best, and let's hope, for Mikkey and Phil's sake, my cockroach prophecy doesn't come to pass.

As expected, this totally rocks! In the continuing saga of live Motorhead releases, this is probably the most massive of the set. This is obviously so because of the fact that it's a double CD of nothing but the best of Motorhead's raucous and ferocious live tunes. Die hard fans will of course still swear by "No Sleep `til Hammersmith", and there's no complaint here about that absolute classic, but this one accurately chronicles well over two decades of belligerent, swaggering rock and roll Lemmy-style. It's really a treat to hear how this incarnation of Motorhead has become a force to be reckoned with in the live arena. Hey, even the most talented musicians can have horrible live chemistry, right? Thankfully, there's no evidence of that anywhere here. Strangely enough, they've gotten so sonically tight and comfortable with one another that they can let loose, get laid-back, and have fun without an ounce of sloppiness. Perhaps that's the key to this live show - they're having a blast, and it shows. When I listen to it, I honestly don't feel that they've left out any strong live tunes from their set. A quick glance at the track listing will impress just about every fan. In fact, there are even a few tunes that I was surprised to hear them perform, but these are the unexpected songs that change the pace a bit and spice up the dynamics - not to mention to give everyone a breather between the tons of rip-roaring classics! And as far as the sound quality goes, I've heard many studio records sound a lot worse than this. All of the instruments punch through the mix and stand out superbly; everything is pretty unhindered and produced rather well. No complaints there, either. In fact, after cranking up the cacophonous and particularly blazing rendition of "Iron Fist", the title of this CD becomes perfectly clear. In all honestly, for all of my many, many years as a fan of rock, metal, and all things extreme, I've never particularly liked live releases. Something about this double CD set broke the rules and surely changed my mind.

It's hard to describe this LP without resorting to empty words like "amazing" or "awesome." It's an incredibly heavy, fast, and consistent recording from a single live performance. Most notable is the vocal strength that a 52-year-old Lemmy Kilmister maintains; he roars like a jet engine throughout this nearly two-hour performance, and gets stronger as he goes. His delivery of the disc's one ballad, "Lost In the Ozone," must be heard to be believed. You'd think his voice would have been gone by age 35 singing like this. The expected old favorites and a good batch of newer numbers are all given a top-notch performance by the current lineup (including superhuman drummer Mikkey Dee), and Lemmy's inimitable between-song chatter is as charming as ever ("This is a slow one, so's you can fall in f---ing love.")

Once again, Motorhead proves that they are perhaps the best live rock and roll band in the world. On this two CD 25 song set, they do not let up one beat and get stronger and louder with every song. If you've heard motorhead on album, and never have had the chance to hear them live, this album will definitely get you in the mood to see them live. Some of the best cuts are from newly released albums, with song renditions of "Take the Blame", "Civil War," "Burner", as well as the classics which are extraordinarily done. One thing that distinguishes Lemmy and co. from the rest of the rock and roll pack is his wit and sense of humor. That is why he has stood the test of time and will keep rocking!! A+ now go buy it.

Here we have a band who's had more personnel changes than Savoy Brown, whose members are 40 or 50 years old, who never really got real popular, never catered to MTV or music 'trends',and has been around for over 20 years. And guess what? It's the best damn rock and roll album released this year, and one of the best of all time. Whereas bands who were INFLUENCED by Motorhead have already gone soft and commercial(you know who), the real deal just keep delivering the goods. As long as Lemmy and the boys are around, rock is safe. God bless 'em.

All you freaks out there who claim to be headbangers because you listen to post-Cliff Metallica oughta buy this album. I cranked CD 1 at a teeny-bopper party at full blast and you know what happened? Load, Reload, and the Black album hopped out of the CD player and jumped out the window! All you little wannabees can kiss Lemmy's wrinked, mole ridden, sweaty behind. Motorhead is Metal, and Motorhead live is too intense for you posers.

Getting a little out of hardrock, buying this album (for sentimental reasons) brings me right back. As the other reviews make clear: this is Motorhead's best album yet! No doubt. Great performance and perfectly captured on cd. Buy it, you won't regret!

I remember that I never even knew about the release of this 2-CD UNTIL someone in a record store had stuck it in my hand. Needless to say, I was more than delighted. A running time of at least 100 minutes, I never knew Motorhead played THAT long of set. 'Everything Louder Than Everyone Else' was recorded live in Hamburg, Germany in May, 1998. Includes two songs from their (then) latest studio effort 'Snake Bite Love' which are "Take The Blame" and the ass-kicking "Love For Sale". Just about every tune here rocks, as the older ones tend to stand out some. Like "Iron Fist", "Metropolis", "No Class", "Capricorn", "Bomber", "Overkill" and their signature anthem "Ace Of Spades". A total of twenty-five headbanging cuts! An amazing live record. I haven't heard "The Chase Is Better Than The Catch" or "Orgasmatron" in ages. Recommended to ALL true metal warriors.

Motorhead has great guitars, great drums and a great singer in Lemmy - not to mention amazing songs that never go stale. The production is excellent. I've listened to a lot of live albums lately, and Everything Louder must be among the best. Like other Motorhead live albums, it improves on several of the songs, particularly 'Lost in the Ozone' off of Bastards. Good liner notes, and more photos of Mickey Dee giving the camera the finger than any one person would need. In short, the world's best live band in top form, captured crystal clear. A must have for any Motorhead fan, and a great introduction to the band although, oddly enough, it doesn't actually have the song 'Motorhead' on it.

This is an incredible selection to get if you're after a Motorhead "Best Of..." but don't know which of the MANY "Best Of"s to buy. All the songs on here are classics, and Motorhead plays them all loud and aggressive, with almost stuido-like quality! The cheering fans heard just enhances the overall energy of the album, and the sheer power of the band! Recorded WELL into the bands carreer (sometime in the 1990s), if anything this album shows that Lemmy and friends are still able to pump out the same raw power the band did back in the beginning! All of Motorhead's classics are on this album, from old to knew. The ONLY bad thing about this recording, is OVERKILL, my favorite Motorhead song, played WAY too fast, and somehow managed to be the only song on the whole two-disc set that sounds badly recorded (figures). Other than that, this is a top live album which could easily double as a Motorhead "Best Of..." especially of fans who are new to the band! A definate classic by one of Metal's greatest ensembles!
