Release Date: 1991 | Tracklist


Hello, I’m Timidus, and thank you for taking a look at my first ever review of any CD. I was browsing Sputnikmusic.com and noticed there was no Motörhead review available, so I decided I’d do one myself, so if it’s crappy it’s because of that.

I chose 1916 because I’ve got that CD lying around here, it was the 2nd CD I bought from Motörhead, with March ör Die being the first. I absolutely loved the CD since I heard it, and hearing a few of the songs on 1916 performed live on the “Everything Löuder Than Everything Else” DVD I knew this would be my first review.

Now here are the tracks, my grades and my opinions…

The One To Sing The Blues: Great song, great way to kick off any CD, with straight, in-your-face Motörhead. Nice drum to lead into the kick-ass guitars and the rough vocals by Lemmy. 8/10

I’m So Bad (Baby I Don’t Care): This song is just sweet. I’ve loved it since the first time I heard it, especially when in the chorus all music dies out and you just hear Lemmy yell “I’m So Bad Baby I Don’t Care”! 8.5/10

No Voices In The Sky: Straight up Motörhead music, fast guitars, sweet drums, but for me personally it’s not the highlight of the CD 7/10

Going To Brazil: This is an awesome song, it’s fun to hear, and you can hear just a little bit of old-school punky Motörhead in this. 7.5/10

Nightmare/The Dreamtime:: Kinda “floaty” music, as in you close your eyes during a good drug trip, and this is just relaxing music. Little bit eerie, but sweet nonetheless. 7.5/10

Love Me Forever: The song you thought you’d never hear from Motörhead. A kind of ballad, with slow paced verses and a rocking chorus. This one stands out since it’s slow paced, but it’s rocking as well. 9/10

Angel City: Hell, my mom even likes this one! It’s a song that gets you moving, surf/rock/metal kind of song. One of my personal favourites on the album. Period. 8.5/10

Make My Day: Pretty standard Motörhead music, fast paced guitars, raw voice by Lemmy, and Philthy on the sweet drums. Basic stuff 7/10

Ramones: A tribute to the Ramones, this song is just over a minute long but it’s a packed minute of music. R-A-M-O-N-E-S! 7.5/10

Shut You Down: Like Make My Day, this is pretty standard Motörhead music. Not much to say, it’s a fun song but not really a classic 7/10

1916: The closing song, this is a very slow paced, it tells about what’s it like to be a soldier during the 1st world war. It calms you down, but it’s repetitive….7/10

This is one of the better Motörhead albums (although I only own three, which will soon be expanded to a sh*tload) and got them back up after years of making mediocre music. To quote Lemmy: “We are Motörhead, born to kick your ass”! Hope you enjoyed this review and that you found it helpful. Please comment, as it was my first time…

I am strongly opposed to the apparant years of 'mediocre muisc'. There is nothing mediocre about Motorhead.

MyRamona, I have some terrible news: I purchased some of this so called "mediocre Motorhead". He's right. Out of the past 5 Motorhead albums I bought...2 of them arent very good at all. Those being Sacrifice and Hammered. I'll get some reviews up for those in a bit...

I know this was written like 6 years ago, but... "mediocre music"?? Come on...



Iron Fist

Another Perfect Day

Orgasmatron

Rock n Roll



These are some of the very best Motorhead albums, and certainly better than this one. There's nothing

mediocre about them, unless you're not really into Motorhead.

2 songs that weren't used for the album (dead man's hand, eagle rock) are cool

Orgasmatron and Rock N' Roll aren't that great imo. If you replace those two with Overkill and Ace of Spades and add Bomber, then we could agree.



The self-titled album is good too.

We've lost so many great people this year, really hasn't been a good one for rock.

Only one I know from the 90's, it slays. I should try Bastards as the next 90's Motorhead, I guess.

For sure. This is more rock 'n' roll whereas Bastards is more groovy. But both albums are great.
