Following on from the brilliant "Overnight Sensation" where every song was exceptional this time Motorhead deLiver an album which consists mostly of solid,decent but not outstanding songs from the groovy opener"Love for Sale",through the speedy vampire themed romp that is"Nightside" to the rock'n'roll of "Don't Lie To Me" and "Desperate For You"
That's not to say that there aren't some cool original touches to be found along the way."Assasin" features an interesting instrumental break in which Mikkey Dee belts out what can only be described as a samba beat on the tom-toms while "Take The Blame" includes a brief but enjoyable keyboard solo.
Two songs do stand out though."Dead And Gone" is a magnificent track with haunting quiet verses in which, thanks to technical wizardry, Lemmy sings in harmony with himself.The effect is extraordinary and sets you up nicely for the impact of the crushingly heavy chorus.
The other really impressive song is "Joy Of Labour",a slow bass driven number which is a real departure for Motorhead,sounding almost like something Pearl Jam might put out.
On balance then,"Snakebite Love" is a good but not great Motorhead album, but still well worth a listen.
