"Bad Magic" delivers everything you know and love about Motörhead with twice the 'tude and more rock than you can handle. Saturated in their legendary, distinctive tattoo sound, the better portion of their latest adds a classic rockabilly, Chuck Berry meets Jerry Lewis-ish meets old-school punk undertone that undermines anyone who thinks to trap them in a Metal box. "We are Motörhead and we play rock and roll," indeed.
"Thunder and Lightning" takes the "Ace of Spades" and throws it like a Chinese star at your throat. "Shoot Out All of Your Lights" showcases Mickey Dee's skin-bashing talents before pummeling into a train rolling, silver streak bar fight of a number. "Evil Eye" is just good, bad fun and they take the Stones' "Sympathy for the Devil" to a level the original skipped, by kicking the tempo up a notch and gracing it with the raspy voice of a real devil of a guy – I could go on.
Fucking Motörhead. One of the best they've done in years. Don't fool yourselves boys and girls, no one's dying anytime soon.
