The Wörld Is Yours
UDR/Motorhead ( )
2011 will arguably be 'The Year of Motörhead'. With the Lemmy documentary having been released on DVD (and still playing at festivals worldwide) and Lemmy himself on the cover of almost every music publication, this could have been a good downtime year for the band. That's not the way things work in Motörhead though; instead the band has created what may very well be the best album they've done since the dawn of the new millennium. Ripping through 10 tracks, on The Wörld is Yours Motörhead do what they do best: bring a dirty rock n' roll feel to heavy metal. Lead off track ‘Born To Lose’ is a great start to the album, kicking things off in high gear with the usual Motörhead swagger and a sentiment that the band should have used in song years ago. ‘Rock ‘n’ Roll Music’ is Lemmy’s ode to how great rock is, and falls into the anthem category. ‘Brotherhood of Man’ has a very dark feel, even for Motörhead, and Lemmy reaches way down into the pits to dredge up his vocal take on this one. Finishing off the album in true form is the swinging, uptempo ‘Bye Bye Bitch Bye Bye’ which might not be the most lyrically deep song, but certainly sticks with you!
The Wörld Is Yours also marks Motörhead actually moving into the 21st century in terms of album packaging. Since it was actually released in the U.K. at the end of 2010 in two different versions: an early slipcover version that came with a Motörhead magazine, and the standard jewel case version. So, in the digital age when everyone can download your album or even order it from overseas (for the die-hards) how do you ensure that North American pirates buy your album? For the first time ever, Motörhead have included a 6 song live DVD with their album featuring footage from their 2009 set at Wacken. Although the set doesn’t include the obvious ‘Ace of Spades’ or ‘Bomber’ it does include the classics ‘Doctor Rock’ and ‘Love Me Like A Reptile’.
 

With an incredible album that could easily stand beside their classics, with The Wörld Is Yours Motörhead have created the ‘can’t miss’ album of the year.
