Motorhead are a band that rarely disapoint. I may be in the minority that thinks that Kiss of Death (2006) was awful but other than that, even at their most mediocre Motorhead have been jolly good. In their now 35 years of rocking and rolling, Motorhead have released several stone cold classic albums. The last of these being Inferno, in my view... until now. The World is Yours might be the best Motorhead album in 15 or 20 years and there is some mighty competition in that time period (1916, Bastards, Overnight Sensation, Inferno). It's ultimately pointless trying to decide whether it tops those classic albums, it is simply another great Motorhead album and, to me anyway, a legitimate return to form. Returning to form is something Motorhead are accused of every 4 to 5 years or so, whenever the media decide that it's time to give them some credit again.

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.

Stand out tracks:
I Know How to Die
Get Back in Line
Outlaw
Rock and Roll Music

No bad songs on here at all. Nothing to skip.

Another couple of years, another Motorhead album. They get kind of hard to review after a while since they all, essentially, sound like Motorhead. Not that the albums are re-hashes of previous albums, by no means, but rather Motorhead is interested in sounding like Motorhead, and you pretty much know what kind of music you'll be getting into when you buy any given Motorhead album.

This isn't groundbreaking music (they did that already, in the mid 70's), nor is it a triumphant return to form from a veteran band coming out of a rut (they never went away, nor deviated in sound, nor got any worse with age). No, "The World Is Yours" is simply another Motorhead album.

If all that sounds like a put down, its really not. Motorhead have been without a doubt the MOST consistantly good rock band on the planet. The albums might all sound similar, but they always manage to find more variations on the same formula, giving us dozens of good albums and hundreds of great songs.

Some of their albums lean a little more metal (Inferno, Sacrifice) while some lean a bit more rock 'n' roll (Ace of Spades, Overnight Sensation), and "The World Is Yours" tends to lean a bit more toward rock 'n' roll. Tracks like "Bye Bye Bitch, Bye Bye" and "Get Back in Line" are very much good old fashioned rock 'n' roll. "Brotherhood Of Man is a bit more metal, with its crushing "Orgasmatron" groove. Its some seriously good stuff.

So again, another strong Motorhead album. By way of comparsion I'd put it above "Motorizer" but not quite as strong as "Kiss of Death" or "Inferno." But really that's splitting hairs... there's almost always one or two songs on any given Motorhead album that don't quite measure up. Needless to say, if you like Motorhead, you'll like this album.

If you like Motorhead then you already have this album \m/\m/
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
3. Motorizer
4.

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)
3.
