How would Lemmy and co. Survive the exit of guitar wiz "Fast" Eddie Clarke? Just fine, as this 1983 LP became the only Motörhead LP featuring ex-Thin Lizzy guitarist Brian "Robbo" Robertson. The band roared as ferociously as ever on Back at the Funny Farm; Shine; Dancing on Your Grave; Rock It; I Got Mine, and more songs that helped 'em hit the U.S. pop-album charts for just the second time. This edition adds the B-side Turn You Round Again and a 1983 concert at the Manchester Apollo: the aforementioned songs plus Go to Hell; Bite the Bullet; Iron Horse; America, and more!

This particular edition of the album comes with a second CD, a live recording of the band in Manchester, UK in 1983. It's a great recording, and proves, once again, that Motörhead sounded just as brilliant live as they did on studio albums.
So although it's not as heavy or as raw as most other Motörhead albums, I think many people now have a greater appreciation for Another Perfect Day in retrospect. It is certainly a unique album and it's worth getting for that reason alone.
I went to a friend's house one day to listen to his Iron Maiden albums and commiserate over how nobody within a 50 mile radius loved metal like we did. He had just picked up a copy of "Another Perfect Day" on vinyl. I had never heard of Motorhead before, and I remember the first time I picked up the album. I was taken with the crazy cover art and the hilarious cartoon on the inner album sleeve. My friend let me borrow the album so I could check it out.
I placed the album on the spinner, put the needle down, and my life has never been the same.
This is a fantastic album. Brian Robertson gives Motorhead a melodic groove that I never get sick of hearing.
Over time, I learned that lots of old school Motorhead fans from the Fast Eddie era hated this album. I didn't understand why at the time, but as I explored Motorhead's back catalogue I began to understand why. This album stands apart from every album Motorhead has done before or since. Robbo's guitar gives this album a musical complexity that Motorhead has never duplicated. I know that Robbo's style would never have worked long-term with Lemmy's aggressive playing. However, the creative tension produced this classic album that is perfect in every way.
Don't get me wrong....I LOVE the classic line up with Fast Eddie, and I think "Bomber" is my favorite album from that era. I kind of run hot/cold over the stuff they've recorded with Phil Campbell. Motorhead have had a long and productive run with Campbell, but they seem to have lost their unique ability to incorporate catchy melodies into heavy metal. Of course, that's just my subjective opinion.
Buy this album and enjoy it. It's a masterpiece.
P.S. My aforementioned friend also had a copy of Iron Maiden's "Soundhouse Tapes" on the original vinyl pressing. I don't know whatever happened to it, but it's worth a lot of money today!
This incarnation would not last long. Motorhead was right back to add kicking basics on 86's Orgasmatron....

My original reaction to this album makes me think that I’m very likely somewhere on the autistic spectrum.
In 1979 I was a Motörhead fan through and through. Lemmy, Philthy Phil and Fast Eddie Clarke had the air of pirate, biker, agents of chaos. They would definitely steal your girlfriend and your stash but (if lucky), they might give you a tin of beer by way of recompense. They were the new tough kids on the block and they certainly didn’t live in castles or wear silk blouses (as far as I am aware). Motörhead were pure, hard, loud, rock and roll. By the release of ‘Another Perfect Day’
I had seen Motörhead live at least three times and possessed every album, single, 12 inch single and T-shirt that I could lay my hands on.
Unfortunately I LOATHED Another Perfect Day at the time of its release. It offended my easily offended young musical sensibilities (such as I thought that I possessed).
I had loved Brian ‘Robbo’ Robertson’s epic guitar slinging with Thin Lizzy but felt that he was simply a bad fit for Motörhead. (The phased guitar, boiler suits and bandanas did nothing to help). I even saw this lineup supporting Black Sabbath in Dublin (Aug 83). Eddie was gone, Ian Gillan was singing with Sabbath ffs, Ronald Reagan was going to blow up the world and I still thought that Ben Elton was funny. My youth was fading into my cynical 20’s.
Well, how wrong can one be? Giving ‘Another Perfect Day’ a fair listening to today (being much older and hopefully wiser) it ROCKS! Yes, it was a departure from what was safe and familiar and it is a great pity that Robertson seemed less than fully invested in the band - but inevitably, with Eddie gone, it HAD to happen for Motörhead to survive and evolve. A second album with this lineup could have been spectacular. Unfortunately it wasn’t to be.
‘Another Perfect Day’ is a great album . It’s loud, it’s musical, it’s Motörhead. Perhaps I should have spent less time drinking beer and sticking my head into bass bins at rock concerts and more time actually listening to the music.
The live disc, a gig from Manchester in 83 is superb.
Worth every penny and definitely worthy of multiple plays.
