Motorhead
Everything Louder Than Everything Else 2xCD (CMC International)

By: Jeb Branin

I think MOTORHEAD have released around three of four official live albums in their career but there have been so many "unofficial" live releases and "contract fulfilling" live albums that I have lost count. So what does this one have to offer that the other don't? Anything? Hell YES! For one thing this is the first live album in several years, not counting the KBFH release which was from a show recorded 15 years ago, and thus the first time we have gotten to hear a lot of the newer Motorclassics live. This is also by far the best sounding of the live albums, the gigantic "wall-of-noise" style production on this album serves the band very well maybe even better than the raw sound on their classic (make that mandatory) first live album. The song selection on this set is tremendous with tracks that represent almost every era and phase of the band - certainly all that are worth representing in the first place. The crowd also adds a lot. Their absolute adoration for Lemmy and the boys comes through loud and clear. But no matter what accolades I manage to dredge up for the band and no matter how many synonyms I can find for "amazing" to use in a review the best reason in the world to buy this disc is the simple fact this is the new MOTORHEAD album and you should own it. Every sentient creature in the known universe ought to realize that.
