Album Review

There have been dozens and dozens of Motörhead compilations released over the decades, but the first one remains definitive, even if it's not perfect. Released in 1984 as a gap-filler — for Motörhead were regrouping in the wake of the bandmember shuffling that followed the odd Another Perfect Day album — No Remorse compiled two-dozen songs across two discs (latter-day editions adding a good serving of bonus tracks, too). Many of the band's best songs to date are here, like "Ace of Spades," "Stay Clean," "Overkill," "Bomber," and "Iron Fist." There are also four new recordings that were cut exclusively for No Remorse: "Killed by Death," "Snaggletooth," "Steal Your Face," and "Locomotive." These four songs were cut by the newly instated four-piece lineup that would go on to record Orgasmatron (1986): guitarists Michael Burston and Phil Campbell, drummer Peter Gill, and of course, bassist/vocalist Lemmy. These new recordings make No Remorse more than a standard greatest-hits package, as do the number of stray recordings compiled here as well. For starters, No Remorse rounds up "Please Don't Touch" and "Emergency," which were released on a 1981 split EP with Girlschool, St. Valentines Day Massacre. It also rounds up an early single ("Louie, Louie") as well as a pair of B-sides ("Too Late, Too Late" and "Like a Nightmare") and a tossed-about live cover "Leaving Here." The inclusion of these stray recordings likewise makes No Remorse more than a standard greatest-hits package. Rather, it's a collection that caters to newbies as well as completists. And furthermore, it plays well, as the new songs and stray material are sequenced toward the end of each LP side, so the collection ebbs and flows between the familiar and unfamiliar, between the great and good. Granted, a straightforward best-of collection may be more suitable to newcomers looking for a one-stop compilation. For instance, No Remorse doesn't account for the wealth of music Motörhead would release post-1984, and too, it misses a lot of great songs that could have taken the place of the odds and ends rounded up here. So a straight-ahead, single-disc chronological survey would be a nice alternative, especially one that accounts for late-'80s highlights like "Deaf Forever," "Orgasmatron," "Rock 'n' Roll," and "Eat the Rich." But there's something to be said for tradition, and No Remorse is to Motörhead what We Sold Our Soul for Rock 'n' Roll is to Black Sabbath — an age-old collection that every metalhead seemed to own at some point, the one that seemed to define the band for generations on end. No Remorse is one of those classic albums, no doubt. [The various reissues of No Remorse append five bonus tracks: two versions of "Under the Knife"; "Masterplan"; and two songs featuring Wendy O. Williams, "Stand by Your Man" (yes, the Tammy Wynette standard!) and "No Class."]

Customer Reviews

no remorse

simply the best motorhead Compilation ever it has all the great and classic songs and tones of bonus tracks to keep you in love with motorhead and wanting more.

"Another gig, my ears bleed"

Motörhead - a veritable institution, combining the raw energy of punk with classic heavy rock sensibilities, served up all bundled into an unapologetic noise-fest that leaves your ears bleeding. This compilation remains, to my mind, the essential Motörhead album. For new fans, it dip samples all the best tracks across a wide portion of their career, before you plunge into their back catalogue. For dyed-in-the-wool fans like me, it's like having the best Motörhead gig you ever went to, there on your iPod. Turn up to
11 and enjoy the sonic assault.

Biography

Formed: 1975 in London, England

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

Motörhead's overwhelmingly loud and fast style of heavy metal was one of the most groundbreaking styles the genre had to offer in the late '70s. Though the group's leader, Lemmy Kilminster, had his roots in the hard-rocking space rock band Hawkwind, Motörhead didn't bother with his old group's progressive tendencies, choosing to amplify the heavy biker rock elements of Hawkwind with the speed of punk rock. Motörhead wasn't punk rock — they formed before the Sex Pistols and they loved the hell-for-leather...
