Synopsis

Amazon.com
Few bands can experience the constant personnel shifts that have plagued Motörhead and still manage to keep their signature sound intact. Bassist Lemmy Kilmister--the only original member to hang on for the band's entire wild ride--had a vision of proto-thrash-metal that has proved too pure and simple to ever require tinkering. Recorded more than a decade and a half into the band's career, 1916 offers a high-energy mix of bone-crunching metallic mayhem that is loud, fast, and intense but never takes itself too seriously. A piece of seriocomic braggadocio such as "I'm So Bad (Baby I Don't Care)" or "Ramones," a nod to the pioneering punk band, is typical. A notable exception, however, is the title track, a bleak ballad cataloging the horrors of World War I through the eyes of a doomed teenage soldier. --Daniel Durchholz

"I heard 1916 performed by Better Dead Than Red and was deeply intrigued.When I found Motorhead was the author I sought it out.When I heard it I was blown away.I never heard Motorhead this way.Played the whole album.Excellent!!!Felt young again(Im 44)Driving,pounding,never going to die music.Not too far from Another Perfect Day,only more sure of themselves.A must for all those who love Motorhead and Lemmy.This is meat."
Motorhead's Best Album Ever

"Great riffs, great lyrics and their most ambitious album. Every song, in its own way, is great. Essential to any Motorhead fan's collection and a great place to start for beginners."
"1916" If It's Motorhead, that's enough
Gennaro Marano Jr. | Sao Paulo, SP Brazil | 10/02/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This release by motorhead is plenty of fuel and venom. This album is played with ferocious rhythm as typified by almost all tracks contained.
One more motorhead album that stands out in heavy metal world, this album is one of the greatest motorhead one.

This album carries on Fantastic songs with a range of paces but all strong. "I'm So Bad (Baby I Don't Care)" "No Voices In The Sky" "Going to Brazil"

That's a great job done by Lemmy and their guys. You should have it with your collection of fantastic heavy metal albums. A classical album I recommend to everybody.
