MOTORHEAD Snake Bite Love - EU re-issue vinyl LP pressing of 1998 album, pressed on purple vinyl
Format: Vinyl Condition: New Year of Release: 20?? Cat. No.: SPV 008-18891 Label: Stramhammer
No matter how many years the band toils on, Lemmy Kilmister refuses to change the basic hard and fast rules of Motorhead. Usually, that's a plus, since nothing quite compares to Motorhead roaring ahead at full blast, but occasionally it can result in an undistinguished album. 'Snake Bite Love' is one of those.
There isn't necessarily anything wrong with the record, as it offers a solid set of blistering, heavy rockers that race by at breakneck speed, but it doesn't add any new twists to the formula or have particularly memorable songs. 'Snake Bite Love' sounds fine as it's playing, but very little of it leaves a lasting impression. Many members of the group's cult will probably find it worth a listen, but those who only like Motorhead's classic '70s and '80s output will find it a bit of a chore.
