Bassist/vocalist Ian “Lemmy” Kilmister and his mates, guitarist Phil Campbell and drummer Mikkey Dee, have created a set that’s a bit more dour than last year’s celebratory We are Motorhead, but no less powerful in its willingness to confront the grim realities at the core of the human condition. The fact that they can do this while simultaneously tearing off magnificently fast and heavy rock ‘n’ roll riffs that celebrate the strenuous beauty of human physicality is a testament to their artistic vision and intergrity.

From the opening "Walk a Crooked Mile" through the grim closing interior monologue "Serial Killer," Lemmy and the boys give an electrifiying tour of rock ‘n’ roll purgatory that examines the economic disparity, governmental dishonesty, and personal alienation and violence that fuel our current societal malaise. The only redemption possible is to rock ‘n’ roll with no remorse.
