Album Review

Following the extremely thrashy Sacrifice, Motörhead returned to their typical three-chord rock & roll onslaught with 1996's Overnight Sensation. Also the band's most eclectic in years, its tracks range from pedal to the metal stompers like "Civil War" and "Eat the Gun" to mid-paced groovers like "Listen to Your Heart" (featuring acoustic guitars — shock!) and the classy "I don't Believe a Word." Always a great lyricist, vocalist /bassist Lemmy takes it up a notch with the highly ironic title track and what is quite possibly the band's greatest song of the decade, the exceptionally funny "Crazy Like a Fox." Despite its terrifying cover (featuring the trio's ugly mugs instead of the band's trademark iron monster), this wonderfully raw and honest record is guaranteed to please, especially older fans.
