FAST EDDIE CLARKE


"It Ain't Over Till It's Over" (Griffin; 1994)

Reviewed by Snidermann

Fast Eddie Clarke, former guitarist for the legendary Motorhead (1976 - 1982), released a solo album entitled "It Ain't Over Till It's Over" in 1994. 

Frankly, as much as I like Motorhead, I found "it Ain't ..." too slow, overly bluesy, often repetitive and, well, boring. The only fire it has throughout is when Motorhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister takes over lead vocals on a cut entitled "Laugh With the Devil." 

Otherwise, the songwriting here is scattershot and the singing is clumsy and hard to get into. Still, there were some shining moments of guitar work from Clarke but there were simply not enough. 

"It Ain't Over Till It's Over" seems forced and is hard to get into. 


Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
