Celebrating 40 years, Lemmy and company could just launch another best of to rip money out of their fans, but we all know Lemmy and luckly for all of us that was not what he had in mind. 40 years of noise, rock n’roll, thunder and lightning, electricity, a lot of deaf ears, and we got some Bad Magic. Of course you cannot expect at this stage to hear something fresh new on the formula that made Motohead legends, but the usual good ol’fashion sound that only this band can deliver. Nobody will care if the voice of Lemmy is there or not, but if the songs are genuine and came if they come from the gutter, well… I guess every Motorhead will be happy as I am right now. So in the end, celebrate while you can, and catch’em live, because you might not have that chance again. Now excuse me while I’m going to listen to the album again.
