AllMusic Review by

This is hardly the best of Motörhead. This IMV/Blueline set of ten tracks by the mightiest metal band in history is a hodge-podge of live versions of classic tracks, with filler tossed in with wildly varying sound quality governing the entire set. In some cases, such as in "Ace of Spades" and "Iron Horse (Born to Lose)," the live versions are brutal and fierce and very present. In others, such as "Marching Off to War," and "Shine," the sound quality is so bad it sounds like a "fair" audience recording from a bootleg. And "City Kids" is a downright tragedy. Avoid this at all costs.
