The great thing about the World is Yours is incredibly catchy. Motorhead haven't sounded this melodic since Bastards. Almost every song has a killer chorus. What is also noticable is that the music is predominantly on the rock n roll side of the fence with the more heavy metal leanings eschewed somewhat. Lemmy will rarely acknowledge that Motorhead play heavy metal but although based in rock n roll roots, Motorhead have cetainly had an equal portion of heavy metal thrown into the mix in the Mikkey Dee days. Not so much on this record. Maybe Born to Lose and certainly Brotherhood of Man (very much like Orgasmatron) are metal but the rest is pure dirty rock n roll with great melodies.

now i have it on vinyl,destroys the cd away.ear piercing decibals.
anyone get there copy with a tee shirt for 5 extra bucks?!its a nice quality shirt AT F.Y.E.
This album has a very intresting mixture. You get parts of going to brazil from "1916", parts from the "Kiss of Death" and "Motorizer"
The lyrics and vocals are well delivered. I heard from reading "professional" reviews Lemmy struggled to deliver on this album. I think the exact opposite of that. He sounds as strong as ever and at parts he sounds like his voice did in the 90's. The rhyming and catchyness to the entire album do have a feel of 90's Motorhead. Some songs like I KNOW HOW TO DIE and I KNOW WHAT YOU NEED def. sound like they could have been off "1916"
GET BACK IN LINE has a very great lyric IMO. It almost seems like it could be as big as the lyc off Ace of Spades "You know I'm gonna lose and gamblings for fools but thats the way I like it baby I don't wanna live forever" GET BACK IN LINE has a very clever rhyming Lyc that I think should be on the same field of play with that line. "....Why do we vote for faceless dogs ? We always take the bait, All things come to he who waits, But all things come too late !!!"
Lemmys lyrics are a lot better than on Motorizer or Kiss of Death, and I loved those albums. I just can't comprehend how the music seems to be getting better.
My rating for their past four albums :
1. Inferno & The World is Yours (Tie)
2. Kiss of Death
The breakdown of the tracks are as follows.
1. Born To lose 10/10 (someone once said the first track off a motorhead album always seems to be like their next huge concert song this is no exception)
2. I know how to die 9.5/10 (You'll find yourself trying to sing this one with a Lemmy voice)

Which brings us to Motorhead. Lemmy Kilmister is 65 rocking years old and hasn't slowed down one damn bit. Motorhead remain prolific and release Cd's of pure heavy rock and roll nirvana on probably the most consistent level of any long term band. Call it metal, thrash or extremely loud rude rock and roll, or as I prefer, Motorhead music. After all, nobody makes music quite like Motorhead, though there's no telling how many bands have tried. Likewise, the number of bands influenced by Motorhead are incalculable. Sodom and High On Fire recall the fire of the early days, but few others get within ballpark range.
"The World Is Yours" is a CD I practically knew what would sound like before I got it unwrapped. I wasn't disappointed, and you won't be, either. With the dedication and love they put into their music, no formula twisting is necessary. Only through 35 years of an immense catalogue can we see the evolution from the earliest original lineup to today's, the longest lasting one featuring Phil Campbell and Mickey Dee on guitar and drums. Like recent releases, "The World Is Yours" is stripped down, loud and inspires the listener to stand up for himself and not be a pushover for anybody. "Rock And Roll Music" is not the Chuck Berry classic, although I'd like to see it given the Motorhead treatment.
To put it short, you either love Motorhead or you don't. This CD won't blow your mind, but you'll get exactly what you came for, a great kick ass rock and roll album. Can't argue with that, can you?
