Favorite and least favorite Motorhead albums

Believe it or not my favorite Motorhead album does not have Fast Eddie or Filthy Phil playing on it. Despite not being the classic line-up, "Orgasmatron" has been favorite Motorhead since I first heard it back in 1986. I think everything falls into place and it contains everything I love about Motorhead which is thick dirty riffs, pounding pace, great vocals from Lemmy and fitting lyrics.

Least favorite is "March or die". Not awful by other the standards of most bands, but for Motorhead it has too much fluff and too many filler tracks. It felt rushed and weak.

The main problem I have with Orgasmatron is the production. It's horrid.

My #1 Motorhead album is also a non-Fast Eddie one...Another Perfect Day.

Sean-The production is raw, but I think that works for Motorhead.

My favorite Motorhead tape cover is Overkill.

The production on Orgasmatron has not aged well. But that's sort of a Bill Laswell trademark. Check out the 2CD Motorhead BBC Sessions. It has a bunch of the songs without any tricky stuff on it. Still love the album, though.
