If you don't already own this, you should be whipped and humiliated. Every track on here is a classic; these are the tunes you want blaring in your primer gray Camaro while drunkenly speeding off of a cliff. Totally scuzzy, obnoxious, over the top; as perfect as r n'r gets. Listening to Lemmy abuse his Rickenbacker never gets old. Pick this up now or continue to be a poseur.

Motorhead are the founding fathers of speed and thrash metal. Without this band, there would be no Slayer or Sepultura, so you've at least got to give Lemmy and Co. props for being so influential. And "Aces of Spades" is an essential, legendary speed metal classic. It's full of fast, meaty riffs, great solos, toe-tapping drums, and catchy, gruff vocals. Almost every song on here (especially the title track, "Love Me Like a Reptile," and "We Are The Road Crew") is very catchy. And the album opening title track, which has a speedy, groove-y main riff, is world renowned. Other highlights include the wah-wah solo and shout-along refrain on "Fire, Fire," "Jailbait," "Dance" (which has a pair of tasty guitar solos), the X-rated "The Chase Is Better Than The Catch," and the famous, rhythmic, nearly dance-able "Please Don't Touch." All in all, if you're looking for great, groove-y, contagious and exciting speed metal, Motorhead "aces" it. Plus, this disc is dirt cheap, so what more do I have to say to convince you?

As I sit here listening to the Ace of Spades album I can't help but say a few words even though another positive review of this classic album isn't at all necessary.
You've undoubtedly heard of this album, own it or at least have heard the title track. Ace of Spades is the most popular and famous Motorhead album. It's their British Steel, Number of the Beast, Dark Side of the Moon, Agents of Fortune, etc, etc. And like those albums, it's very strong and very solid. It's not the best album Motorhead has done, nor is it the only one someone should buy. These guys continue to put out great stuff(look no further than 2004's Inferno for that).
One of the best qualities of Motorhead is that there is no B.S. with these guys. They achieved their legendary status by simply being themselves and never having to compromise. Wanting to continue in the tradition of the original concepts of Rock and Roll music-music that is loud, wild, energetic, tough, dirty and bugs the hell out of parents-Motorhead have made it their mission to be the rowdiest, dirtiest and loudest rock band in the world. And they pull it off in....ahem....Spades.
Motorhead hate being categorized as a heavy metal band. In many ways they are quite different than the metal bands of that time, but they do share the same intensity of those bands, even surpassing many of them. Because of it's volume and energy, it's quite easy to see why they earn this label. It is easier to think of them more as a very loud and energetic biker type rock band. The album cover pretty much sums up the sound of the band-Rough looking outlaw looking types who don't look like the kind of guys you wanna screw around with.
Ace of Spades is a very good intro to the newcomer. Some disagree with me, but I really don't feel there are any filler songs on this album. It is a great starting point, but don't think it's the only great album they did.

CLASSICK!!!!

I am by no means a metalhead but this disc is just so danged much FUN!!!!!! No nonsense turn the Marshalls up to 11 rock 'n roll with good 'ol Lemmy's strangled bark and runaway bulldozer bass sound, crashing machine gun drumming and vicious guitar! Plus, 'ol Lemmy definitely writes some of the most side-splitting funniest lyrics in metal!

Whenever I need a good laugh or just a shot of adrenaline, this one does the job for me and then some! Also, I have found this VERY useful in clearing my brain of exposure to HORRID new-age music! Throw this on and you'll be barkin' and growlin' with The Lemster in no time!

A classic - I think Ciaran, my best mate back home, summed them up when we used to see Lemmy (bass playing/vocalist/frontman) at some other show. "'Ere - buy us a pint," was his standard refrain, even to strangers like us! The only difference between Lemmy & his boys & the punk bands were the length of their hair - both lots wore black jeans, black leather jackets, took speed, drank like fish & played similar music - loud, fast & with little sublety! They used to play on a fair number of punk shows in those days, along with the better London reggae bands of the time.
Don't know what happened to Lemmy & his lads (he was really the only constant), but there is no doubt - this is their best - not subtle but fast, loud and great to be drinking to.
I recommend highly!!!

I think that Heavy Metal magazine said it best:
"Ace of Spades, by Motorhead, is the perfect music to invade Czechoslovakia by."

My husband & I are such Motorhead fiends (fans) we own about everything they've ever put out. However Ace of Spades is a true classic among all the rest and should be the start of any beginning collection of Motorhead's albums. Every song here is a tried & true classic, even the one filler song at the end of the album is still special. Why you may ask, for no other reason except this was Motorhead's first most important album, a well known classic & the line-up is made up of the original members. This power trio created the tightest, most frenetic energy and definitely the loudest, hardest blackest, heavy rock n' roll (and a bit of punk, thrash, blues & even went on to inspire much metal music). This power trio is made up the first members of Motorhead: Ian "Lemmy" Kilmister (vocals & bass as never was heard of before nor since) * Lemmy is Motorhead!* "Fast Eddie" Clarke (guitar, unbelievable master of strings), & "Philthy Animal" Phil Taylor (drums, so fast it's mind-bending). You won't regret this purchase, the worst it can do is actually Change your life, for the better, guaranteed.
