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.

Being very much into early Motorhead and the Fast Eddie period, I had ignored most of Motorheads albums after 1916, the album not the year. But this cd is honestly one of the bands best ever. Its both more thrashy and melodic...definitely more crafted in songsmanship than later albums like Sacrifice, but not as slick (a good thing to me) as Bastards. Its also got a very unified feel to it.

The best compliment I can make about Overnight Sensation is that I now have to add at least four or five songs from it to my running list/cd compiliation of Motorheads best songs. And its a testament to this bands greatness that their best stuff will not even fit on two 80 minute cds anymore. Not that I am complaining.

Ok, so you skip the last song. So what? Lemmy howls wickedly on every song. What more do you want? The disc opens up with both barrels smoking (the rock and roar of "Civil War" and "Crazy Like A Fox"). "I don't believe a word" is a brilliant ballad without any illusions. "Eat the Gun", "Overnite Sensation", and "Love Can't Buy You Money" deal with the topics of sex, money, and sex & money. "Them Not Me" is an ironic satire about who's to blame for all the world's troubles. The whole album thrusts along at the frenetic pace Motorhead is famous for. If your stereo can play loudly, feed it this CD!

Thank God that Lemmy and his crew were NOT "overnight sensations," i.e., some one-hit wonder band, here today, gone tomorrow. No, rather, Motorhaed never went for easy fame. Rather, they put their noses to the grindstone and did it the old fashioned way: Endless touring, churning out meatgrinder music to make some eardrums bleed, cranking it up to 11.

"Overnight Sensation" is thematically more of the same for this consistent group: Friedrich Nietzsche watching a peep show. The opening tune, "Civil War" drew me to buy this disc: Death, destruction, demolition (3D), plus Mikkey D's killer drum solo opening the disc. But, lemmy's excellent bass riffs in songs like "Crazy Like a Fox" and the title cut, keep me coming back for more. Listen to the bass reverb in this last -- not all muddied up like the garbage you hear from those showoffs who blast their subwoofers in their cars to impress passersby. No, Lemmy's bass is clean and full of vibrato, without sacrificing raw power.

Some good Lemmy social commentary in "Eat the Gun" and "Murder Show." Some heretical Lemmy in "I Don't Believe A Word." And, who hasn't thought the same "I'm glad it's them and wasn't me" when hearing tragic news?

This is an album that i loved as soon as I put it in. The riffs stay in my head for days. Its simple and to the point. It sticks to the motorhead formula of hard and fast and rates as one of my favorite albums.

Motorhead's "Overnight Sensation" is another monster album from a truly monster band! "White noise is coming" are the first words you hear on opening cut "Civil War" and rarely has there been a clearer statement of intent. Bam! Right upside the head and we're off. Track two, "Crazy Like A Fox", comes at ya in the locomotive style that is Motorhead's trademark. Bassist/vocalist Lemmy even throws in a harmonica solo of all things, but sure enough it works! From there the excellence continures 'til the final track has ended. After over twenty years of releasing albums, Lemmy & Co. are still at the top of their craft. I rate it as one of their best and recommend it as a great starter for those unfamiliar with the band. One listen will also confirm my belief that Mikkey Dee is truly one of rock music's most underrated Drummers and Motorhead's secret weapon. I give 'em Five Big, Fat Stars!!!!!

I've been a fan of Motorhead from way back and though some may say they keep making the same album over and over again, I, for one, as with AC/DC don't like fixing something that isn't broke. My only regret here is that Philthy Animal is no longer with them.

This has been the most stable lineup I think Motorhead has ever had, and though my sentiments go for Little Philthy, Mickey Dee is still one hell of a drummer and has taken up the slack without missing a beat.

As for the music, there is no one, and never will be another Lemmy. His voice is admittedly an acquired taste, but one I developed many moons ago.

The songs are all great, typical Motorhead, but with a few very memorable standout tracks. Crazy Like A Fox and Listen To Your Heart are my favorites.

There is enough variety to tell this album apart from every other Motorhead album, and when it first came out, it showed that these guys still had it well past their supposed prime. Even now, decades later, they are still going strong and will always have a special place in my heart. Highly recommended.

Good worthy follow-up to their 'Sacrifice' effort. Some fans say this CD is Motorhead's most diverse work in years.Still a great catalog title from Lemmy and crew, that's a true keeper. Well, to MOST Motorhead fans it is. Tracks that I thought made the grade were the metal gems, "Civil War", "Eat The Gun", the humorous "Crazy Like A Fox" and the steady rocker "Shake The World". Also liked "Love Can't Buy You Money". It's just that I've got SO much Motorhead and I still don't have every one of their releases. Maybe half of their repertoire. Still churning out that must-have British heavy metal after all these years.
