Motorhead: The World Is Yours

Hard Rock
3.5/5.0

35 years and counting. Yeah, that's how long Motorhead has been kicking ass and taking names. If it seems like a long time from when Ian Fraser 'Lemmy' Kilmister was kicked out of English space rock band Hawkwind for doing 'the wrong drugs' (cocaine), it certainly is. But the Motorhead formula remains the same. On their 20th studio release, The World is Yours Lemmy and Motorhead continue to blend punk rock with the edge of heavy metal and the fun of pure rock n roll.

Expecting drastic measures or some divergence from the tried and true would be a fool's quest. Born to Lose, Rock N Roll Music, Get Back in Line, and Outlaw are unashamedly Motorhead sans pretense. Quite possibly the aforementioned Rock N Roll Music might make Motorhead sidewalk accessible for the average pedestrian. But maybe not. Perhaps Motorhead is best when they're their most quick as on I Know What You Need; or maybe at their most heavy, fast, and sarcastic as on Bye Bye Bitch Bye Bye.

In the end, The World is Yours is Motorhead, pure and simple: fast, heavy, and with a bit of punk n roll. Dig it or forget it.

In Short

Motorhead's The World is Yours is Motorhead, pure and simple: fast, heavy, and with a bit of punk n roll. It's all balls to the wall. Dig it or forget it.
