|A lot of people don't seem to hold this album in such high regard, and I'm not sure why. As the title suggests, it's less metallic than many of their albums, but that's more in spirit than in sound. Rock 'n' Roll has a really, really strong first half, with the title track and "Eat The Rich" being evergreen classics. The former is an anthem for all of us lifers, and the latter shows off some of Lemmy's weirdest, wildest wordplay ("Shetland pony or extra pepperoni—just pick up the phone!") "Blackheart" is an underrated, hard-z-nails track that no one seems to mention (doesn't every Motorhead album have a couple of these?) "Stone Deaf In The USA" is like Lemmy's beloved '50's rockabilly run through a blast furnace—no mistaking that infectious bounce.

|There's a spoken interlude next, not sure which song it's supposed to be a part of, and then "The Wolf" and "Traitor" are more grim, sinister Motorhead fare. About here is where things get a bit dodgy, because "Traitor" is serviceable but unremarkable—like the opposite of "Blackheart," there were starting to be one or two of these on most Motorhead albums as well. "Dogs," I don't get this one at all. "All For You" is another attempt some old-time rock 'n' roll, but much less successful than "Stone Deaf In The USA"—Lem's attempt at melodic singing is predictably poor. The album finishes on an up note though, with "Boogeyman." The reissue includes "Cradle To The Grave" from The Decline Of Western Civilization Part II, and the band's longest song, the seven-minute-plus "Just 'Cos You Got The Power"—both very worthy tracks, and a live set from the previous year's Monsters Of Rock festival. Also of note, Wurzel's absolutely blazing solos on "Stone Deaf" and the title track.
