Q - 10/96, p.187
3 Stars - Good - "OVERKILL pretty much set the tone for the next 10 years of Motorhead's career-Clarke's guitars doing their best to expand on Lemmy's extraordinarily terse bass lines...Taylor's drums splashing around like hippos, and Lemmy's...hoarse angry...voice shouting out basic and succinct songs..."
Blender (Magazine)
5 stars out of 5 -- "No band ever quite matched the lager-and-amphetamine thrill of late-'70s Motorhead as they forged the missing link between punk and heavy metal."

Product Description:

Includes liner notes by Steffan Chirazi.
Limited Japanese edition.
CD comes in Jpn LP Sleeve.
OVERKILL stands as one of Motorhead's greatest albums, an all-time heavy metal classic. After creating a buzz amongst British headbangers with their 1977 self-titled album, Motorhead began seriously assaulting the U.K. charts with this breakout sophomore hit, which was produced by the Rolling Stones' former knob-twiddler Jimmy Miller.
The songwriting and musical direction had become stronger and more focused, as evidenced by such raucous Motorhead classics as the title track, "Stay Clean," "Capricorn," "No Class," and the epic "Metropolis." OVERKILL began a string of hit European albums for the band, which would include such future metal gems as BOMBER, ACE OF SPADES, and NO SLEEP 'TIL HAMMERSMITH.
