"Maybe not the best Motorhead disc ever released,but still worth owning a copy of.Surprisingly enough,on the CD's ballad,"One More F**king Time",Lemmy can actually carry out the feat rather well.Other decent tracks include "Stay Out Of Jail",the Sex Pistol's cover "God Save The Queen","Wake The Dead" and the title cut "We Are Motorhead" which pretty much says it all.Good to take off the rack from time to time for a spin in your CD player."
The AC/DC of enduring biker rock

"Leave it to a band like Motorhead to come up with a seven minute ballad and call it "One More F***ing Time." Actually, this stab at a leather hearted tear jerker is far from the limpid attention getter you'd expect it to be; not only is it staged capably as an epic 70s ballad, but believe it or not Lemmy even acquits himself admirably in the vocal department. Elsewhere the band are up to the usual, churning out that dirty proto-thrash they've been pioneering since the Disco era with varying quality. The trio even playfully rip themselves off with the opening of the title cut, launching into a chord progression suspiciously reminiscent of the amphetamine fueled "Ace of Spades" riff. Like that beat up biker jacket Lemmy's been wearing since he was out of grade school, you get the impression Motorhead's songs have been lived in and experienced before they were put down in the studio, and that's why they can get away with cranking out the same old dirt metal for over twenty years."
