Motörhead – Iron Fist (1982)

Iron Fist is the first meh experience I’ve encountered whilst working my way chronologically through the Motörhead discography. I suppose whatever the band dropped would have to be diamond hard to top Ace Of Spades or Bomber, but Iron Fist is more than just a record paling in comparison, its just flat out not very good.

It just seems tired. Its everything about Motörhead that stopped me from listening to Motörhead. The production is rubbish, and honestly, I’m snoozing by the time we’re four or five tracks deep. “Speedfreak” is a decent tune, and there’s one or two that keep that level of quality up towards the very back of the record, but that’s all folks.

I’m sure this album has its admirers. I’m not one of them.
