Motörhead – Another Perfect Day (reissue)

Music news

On the occasion of the 40th anniversary of its release, Another Perfect Day is adorned with a reissue allowing you to dive back into this buried treasure of Motörhead.

1983, “Fast Eddie” just slammed the door. Motorhead comes out of its founding trilogy and urgently hires Brian “Robbo” Robertson, ex-Thin Lizzy. Another Perfect Day will be the only experience of this intermediate period. It will be hated upon its release, the album having lost all the “punk” urgency that the original trio had.

However, titles like “Rock It” or “Shine” hold up, just lost in useless Robbo-tic convolutions. Fortunately, this third reissue (after 1996 and 2006) is augmented by demos (the promising “Climber”), rarities (including “Turn You Round Again” live) and the previously unreleased live performance at Hull City Hall from the album tour .
