From Strength to Strength,
This review is from: Aftershock (Audio CD)
Aftershock is a showcase album for Motorhead, as Lemmy, Phil Campbell, and Mikkey Dee demonstrate the versatility in their familiar sound. The album opens with two straight ahead, forceful rockers, Heartbreaker and Coup de Grace. They prove from the jump that, recent physical ailments aside, Lemmy is giving no ground on the rock `n' roll front. These songs are only the beginning of a breathtaking sonic ride.
Lost Woman Blues has a snaking, slinking groove; a wise blues performer would do well to cover this tune. Dust and Glass is a slower tempo number in which Lemmy comes damn close to crooning. Both songs are excellent, and the songs that respectively follow them, End of Time and Going to Mexico, are as fast as anything in the Motorhead canon. Another highlight on Aftershock is Silence when You Speak to Me, the sonic equivalent of a marauding army.
Aftershock starts off strong, and it never lets up. It is solid Motorhead throughout. Old fans should be anything but disappointed, and it isn't a bad beginning point for newcomers. Get it. Now.

Crooning? Gimme a break, I don't think Lemmy was built for crooning, NO FREAKING WAY!

Well, his version of crooning, anyway. :)

I get your point, I would like to see them before he dies but every time they come around I never have the money.

I'd love to see them, too. I had tickets for a show in Denver with Volbeat and Megadeth a few years ago, but Lemmy got sick and they didn't play. Volbeat and Megadeth weren't bad, but it bummed me out. I was there to see Motorhead.

"Google is the most popular site on the Internet, receiving about 233.1 million unique visitors for all its sites, according to ComScore's media report for the month of August. Amazon ranks sixth on the list, attracting roughly 172 million unique visitors".
This of course is not true because Ebay is a sell site and I don't buy things through Google I go thru Amazon to buy stuff or a different related site. So where does he get off saying that Google is a buy site? He just said that Google is the most popular site on the internet.
