Thanks for sharing your top 10, Hammer. It looks like many of us have TWIY in the top ten, if not the top 5. It is a good one, isn't it?
Fester, thanks for the kudos. After spending far too much late-night time reading comments on American sports sites, proving how insanely rude and hateful many Americans can be to each other, it's refreshing to come on this site where nearly everyone is actually respectful and friendly. I think I'm the only American on this thread so far...maybe I should move; it would certainly help my health insurance situation!
As for listening to whole albums--at least with Motorhead, many of them still clock in at less than 40 minutes, and the rest aren't much longer, so at least it doesn't take too much time to listen to one.
On "good songs on less favorite albums"--for me, "Sucker", and cuts 2-4 on Bastards (cut 1 is not bad at all, either); and, I've always been a sucker for "Stand", even though one could argue that it does come off as something of a contrived anthem. Nothing wrong with "Brave New World" and "Red Raw", either. Goes to show that every MH album should have something for every fan.
Cheers tragedy, Yeah, TWIY is a a beauty. Brotherhood Of Man is fast becoming an all time favorite of mine.
Your thoughts on 'Another Perfect Day' are interesting. I remember when i first bought it (way back in 1984!), it left me cold, didn't like it all. Like many at the time, i was mourning the loss of Eddie, and Robbo seemed a very odd replacement.
Many years later, i got the remaster and gave it a go. After not hearing it over 20 years, i was blown away. It now sits comfortably in my top 3, and is regularly on my rotation. Robbo's work is superb. It is different, but i think that's part of it's charm.
