While I enjoyed Motorizer at the time of its release, in hindsight I don’t think the album is anything great. So when The World Is Yours was announced, it wasn’t something I was incredibly excited for but I still planned on picking it up. There’s been a lot of buzz regarding this album with many sources saying this is Motorhead’s time to shine. While I’m not quite sure I agree that the world belongs to Motorhead at this moment, this is certainly a fine album to release with so many eyes upon the band and Lemmy thanks to the Lemmy documentary. In some editions, there is a bonus DVD featuring six songs from the band’s performance at Wacken in 2006.

This album has definitely grabbed me more than Motorizer did. There just seems to be more energy this time around even though the album is still the same ol’ mix of heavy metal, punk and rock ‘n’ roll that the band has been putting out for decades. The album opens with the roaring “Born To Lose”, a perfectly titled Motorhead song if there ever was one. Other highlights are “Get Back In Line”, “Rock ‘n’ Roll Music” and “Bye Bye Bitch Bye Bye” all of which display some ol’ fashioned blues-based rock ‘n’ roll. My favorite song out of the bunch is the sinister and powerful sounding “Brotherhood Of Man” which reminds me of Metallica in a way.

What can I say? If Motorhead has never worked for you before, they probably won’t now but 65 years into his life Lemmy is still putting out great rock ‘n’ roll and I can’t imagine Motorhead being disappointed with The World Is Yours! He’s a true icon in the music business.

Highlights: “Born To Lose”, “Get Back In Line”, “Rock ‘n’ Roll Music”, “Waiting For The Snake”, “Brotherhood Of Man”, “Bye Bye Bitch Bye Bye”

  1. Motorhead are headlining Bloodstock in the UK this summer and I am very tempted to see them. The only account of them in my book isn’t favourable because Lemmy spent the entire night moaning about the sound. I’m sure they won’t be like this at Bloodstock.
