Another great album from the other great three-man lineup of Motorhead, their longest-lasting configuration as well. At this point, while the beats-per-minute are still frequently right up there with the early days, to the trained ear the sense of unhinged, half-mad velocity is missing, replaced with ruthless, machinelike precision. Such is the cost of the upgrade in musical ability of Mikkey Dee and Phil Campbell. So there's a bit of a different feel to these later albums, but there's no denying the band has put out some of its best work ever since 1993. Overnight Sensation is an exceptionally strong release, even for Motorhead. After a solid but somewhat rote first track, highlights galore: "Crazy Like A Fox" (because a harmonica solo makes anything cooler!), the hard stomp of the title track and "Broken," the breakneck "Eat The Gun," "Them Not Me" and "Murder Show," and the more mid-paced, sneering 'Love Can't Buy You Money."

All the best Motorhead albums have a few surprises lurking, and here we have "I Don't Believe A Word," a semi-ballad featuring heavy, plodding bass in place of any wimpy guitar shimmer; "Shake The World," a slow blues making unlikely use of double-bass drumming, and "Listen To Your Heart," which does feature acoustic guitar, but in a hard-strummed, foot-tapping uptempo way to go along with Lemmy's more clean-sung vocals. These songs, if not necessarily highlights, keep the album varied, and point up the more traditional Motorhead-ness of songs like "Civil War" and 'Murder Show." It all just makes for an incredibly strong, well-rounded disc. Also of note, Lemmy's lyrics are somewhat less sex-crazed and more concerned with his cynical, even bleak worldview.
