Brilliant album. Stay clean, the title track, No class, Damage case, Metropolis...one of Lemmy's finest works.

Nearly on the same level as Ace of Spades among early Motorhead albums, Overkill is where they first truly embraced the speed for which they would become synonymous. Nothing outside of hardcore punk and sometimes Judas Priest was as fast as the title track in 1979. Then you get the salute to '50's rock in 'I Won't Pay Your Price," the ZZ Top-on-crank boogie of "No Class" and "Damage Case," and a trove of other delights. The only thing holding this album back from fully challenging Ace Of Spades is that the production isn't as strong. Philthy's intro to "Overkill" doesn't sound as powerful as it should and the tradeoff in Lemmy's bass is that, the more guitar-like it sounds, the less bottom-end you get.
