Motörizer | Steamhammer/SPV

2.5 2.5 Stars
In these unsettling times of geopolitical instability around the globe and economic chaos here at home, it’s nice to know that we can depend on Lemmy Kilmister and the other members of Motörhead: these hard-drinking Brits have been churning out top-shelf biker-bar heavy metal for more than 30 years, and age doesn’t appear to be any more threatening to their health than a case of whisky (or, no doubt, several cases of the clap). Motörizer, much of which the band recorded at Dave Grohl’s Studio 606 outside LA, is Motörhead’s first studio album since . . . well, actually, only since 2006, when they released Kiss of Death, which sounded pretty much exactly like this one (not to mention the 22 before it). Highlights, if you wanna get technical about it, include “English Rose,” in which Lemmy invites a lovely lady to spend all his money, and “Teach You How To Sing the Blues,” where he outlines a thoughtful solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. (Just kidding.) Long may these dudes rock out — with or (preferably) without their cocks out.
