A very good compilation from the period 1975 'til 2000. The first disc is well-filled with the old Motörhead classics, and this time there are also tracks included from the début Motörhead and On parole. Good to hear Motörhead, White line fever, Iron horse and City kids on a compilation. There is also a version of motörhead on the album which is performed by Hawkwind. Many other great songs are passing by as Killed by death(edit version),Louie Louie(alternate version), Damage case and Dead men tell no tales. I really like this uncomplicated,hard-boiled heavy rock. Each disc ends with some rough sounding live tracks, which must have been taken from the No sleep 'til Hammersmith bonustracks. The second disc starts with the fast ones Iron fist & Heart of stone, which are followed by the more melodic Shine & I got mine. Then we have four songs from the magnificent Orgasmatron album. The chase is better than the catch is an oldie and was already appearing in a live version on disc1. The Roc'k'n'roll album is represented by three of the best songs,including the titletrack. The last five studio tracks are handling the period'90-'00 with Sacrifice and The one to sing the blues as the most marvellous ones. The best of Motörhead is an unique summary of 25 years Motörhead.
