Another Perfect Day was recorded after "Fast" Eddie Clarke left the band and former Thin Lizzy guitarist Brian Robertson replaced him. Given Robertson's past in the stadium hard rock of Thin Lizzy, it's not surprising that Another Perfect Day has a slicker sound than its predecessors, which means that isn't the blood'n'guts roar that Motorhead fans have come to expect. It's a bit restrained and pretty bland, a record that fails to deliver anything that Motorhead ever promised. This 1988 reissue also includes, oddly enough, the group's second LP, Overkill.
