Synopsis

Amazon.com
They're still going, of course, having earned a similar place in the affections of the British public to that of the Queen Mother. Ace of Spades is the reason for Motörhead's high standing. Or, to be precise, the title track of this album is the reason. "Ace of Spades," along with Steppenwolf's "Born to Be Wild," is the definitive heavy-metal biker anthem, and Lemmy's midsong bellow of "And that's the way I like it baby, I don't want to live forever" is declaration of intent that has rung down the ages. That Lemmy has since given every appearance of obstinate immortality does not detract from it in the slightest. --Andrew Mueller

"Anybody who doesn't like this should be whipped & beaten with iron bars and bike chains. Over twenty years now and it ain't dated at all. I like ALL the tunes including the three bonus ones they added to the CD. My personal faves; "Dance" and "(We Are) The Road Crew". 'Limp Bizcut' and those phony 'Rage Against the Machine' posers NOT allowed... Lemmy rules, man..."
Absolutely essential.

"Although Motorhead have made several albums that are just as good, if not better than "Ace Of Spades," this one serves as the best introduction to Motorhead. While many people speak of Motorhead as "proto-thrash metal," there is a distinct blues-iness to the playing that is woefully overlooked, so if you think you're going to get Cannibal Corpse or something, you're in for a rude awakening. However, if you like REAL rock and roll, the kind of stuff that Little Richard and AC/DC play, and you like it fast, hard, and loud, this is for you."
