    While I'm waiting impatiently for new Blue Oyster Cult remasters, I've been picking up the Motorhead ones. Now, I've never listened to Motorhead before, so I don't know much about 'em, but I gotta say, these cds kick ass. Oh, I've heard a few things here and there, like Killed By Death, Sacrifice, and of course, Ace of Spades, but I never actively listened to them. I always meant to, nut for some reason or other, they always got put on the back burner. Anyway...
    So far I've got
    Ace of Spades
    No Sleep 'til Hammersmith
    Iron Fist
    I know it may be sacrilege, but I don't care what everybody says, I don't think No Sleep is as powerful as the studio albums. Maybe the studio albums were never produced well on vinyl or something, but on cd, they rock, whereas No Sleep just doesnt have much low range "umph". Am I crazy? What do you think?
    Next up is Overkill and Orgasmatron, unless someone can convince me otherwise that is. And why the hell are these two more expensive than the rest?

    Ace of Spades is my quintessential Motorhead album - do they have the US or UK run order? The US version opened with Chase is Better Than the Catch.

    Iron Fist was their last decent album IMO, after that it was just more of the same.Overkill is a classic, alongside AOS and Bomber. I want a remaster of the original Motorhead album - that one sounded pretty raw on vinyl.

    No Sleep never had great production, but the performnaces slayed...
