RRD 9354 cover
[high resolution scan]

A nother compilation that repurposes the first Motorhead cover; just what the world needs, your cynical mind is thinking. But this is the first Motorhead compilation, including all of their cranium-splitting classics (“Ace of Spades,” “Motorhead,” “Jailbait,” “Overkill,” etc.) and some great new tracks (“Killed By Death,” “Snaggletooth”) from the new lineup that had yet to release an album of their own. So what you get here is the stuff that made Motorhead a legend plus the exciting next chapter in their history foreshadowed. Truly, the four new tracks on here are awesome, meaning that No Remorse is no mere rose-colored picture of the past. This is a celebration of Motorhead: the maximum-overdrive metal lords of mayhem who played by no rules and, in doing so, wrote the rulebook for the metal/punk bands that followed. Lemmy is so unrepentantly repulsive that he’s riveting. How else to explain your admiration for the man as he flaunts both death and decency? Lemmy should be a cartoon, but instead he’s a graphic novel hero, unreal and yet as elemental to the human condition as some fertility god for the industrial age. As with the great Ozzy, would we not have created a Lemmy if he didn’t already exist? Bronze took the brave step of honoring Motorhead with a double-LPing, heaping twenty-four tracks (twenty-two on CD) from their previous albums, EPs and singles. As you know, various labels would repeat the effort over the years, often returning to the same artwork. In fact, even this compilation saw several re-releases under the Castle/Sanctuary and Roadrunner labels. No Remorse remains perhaps the best way to experience maximum Motorhead on one disc. If you haven’t had the pleasure, there are no excuses: pick up No Remorse and thou shalt rock most righteously backward and onward.
