Interested in checking out the best albums from the two guitars/four piece era as i'm not very familiar with that stuff.

Thinking No Sleep at All could be a good start. Cheers.

I'd go for Orgasmatron followed by 1916
both albums are full of classics

Rock n Roll & Bastards. Sacrifice is great too. Bastards has recently been reissued on LP actually, it used to cost somewhat like 50€ until quite recently.

NB: the reissue (at least here) is called Death or Glory but yes it is the Bastards album.

No reason to start with No Sleep At All except that it can be found relatively cheaply. 1916 is the best place to start for the 4-piece era. If you like the greasy rock elements, go backward, and if you like the more melodic but also more heavy Americanized stuff starting to creep in, then go forward.

I would personally rank them:
Bastards
1916
Orgasmatron
Sacrifice
Rock N Roll (used to love it but it hasn't aged well)
March or Die

Don't forget about The Birthday Party live album either, which came right at the start of the 4-piece era and thus only includes a few then-new tracks (Mean Machine and On the Road (pre-Built For Speed)) along with a lot of hits.

Also the Everything Louder.. VHS (from the 1916 tour) is pretty cool, not to be confused with the 1998 live album of mostly the same name which is MEGA cool but post 4-piece.

Get all Motörhead albums. That's basically my goal. Really the only old band with which I have that goal. Slowly but certainly I'm getting there...

Of what has been said here, March or Die is a fantastic album, one I don't hear too much about, maybe because it has several a bit less typical tracks, but great album nonetheless!

I'd add Another perfect day to that list, it's probably the least representative of the Motorhead sound but there isn't a single weak track on this one and is one of my favorites.

I disagree totally but won't argue. It's an interesting opinion for sure, which goes to show that even Motorhead at (in my opinion) their worst will sound tons better than the shit that passes for rock and roll nowadays!

Also don't forget the 4 songs from No Remorse which were the first tracks from the 4-piece band: Killed By Death, Snaggletooth, Locomotive, Steal Your Face. All solid. The b-sides (Under the Knife and Under the Knife) not so much, but that's almost an album's worth of songs right there.

Even tho' it's a "trio" release, Overnight Sensation rules and deserves more praise. Hammered too.

I think it might have been the first Motörhead album I ever heard, so that might have something to do with it, but yeah, I really like that album.
