Next review: » Motorhead - We Are Motorhead
The World Is Yours
Released: 2011, EMI/Motorhead Music
I have never been a huge Motorhead fan, but I have always respected their important role in the development of metal, mainly through all of the bands they have influenced. The fact that after thirty plus years they are still cranking out quality albums despite a less than healthy lifestyle says a lot, and THE WORLD IS YOURS is another in an ongoing chain of quality albums. As expected, no real stylistic changes, just driving punk rock n roll. Lemmy still seems pissed off on this one, as practically every song has Kilmister promising dire consequences for anybody getting in his way, but then again, he has been doing that for decades.
Songs like “I Know How To Die”, “Outlaw”, and “Bye Bye Bitch Bye Bye” best illustrate Motorhead’s continued excellence at marrying fast power chords with catchy choruses. Motorhead is still the band that is willing to get into the trenches and get dirty and keep things simple. For that reminder, the world still needs Motorhead especially when virtuous metal fatigue sets in and you just want to enjoy a beer with a simple and driving rock song. Diehard fans of the band should rest assured that THE WORLD IS YOURS is every bit as worthy of ownership as most of their album’s , while the rest of us can number Motorhead among the handful of bands we can count on to release quality albums with almost no change to the original formula.
