On the 21st studio recording from metal bass master Lemmy Kilmister and Motörhead, the celebrated rockers go back to their roots on an album that pays homage to their blues-rock influence while still remaining heavy. The opening track, “Heartbreaker,” shows Lemmy’s speed-metal prowess as his Rickenbacker 4001 burns through a barrage of angry riffs. The power trio then shifts to the Southern delta on “Lost Woman Blues,” proving that Lemmy hasn’t lost a step over the span of his long career.
