  • Summary: The legend of Lemmy lives on as Motorhead releases their 20th album on the year of their 35th anniversary, continuing their hard rock, heavy metal roller-coaster ride.

    Their 21st studio album. Not so dissimilar to the other 20. [Feb. 2011, p. 108]

    There are a couple of lesser chug-alongs, but mostly it's as good as anything in the Motörhead canon.

    The World Is Yours is the usual drill: fast, frenetic and very, very loud, with Lemmy belching his messages of defiance and rock'n'roll redemption like a raging, fire and brimstone preacher. Who would want it any other way? [Feb. 2011, p. 124]

    The World Is Yours won't set the world alight with insightful lyrics or experimentation, but that isn't what we've signed up for. This is an LP that just does not let up from the get go.

    This pair of grizzled old vets, together with their seemingly indestructible, mutton-chopped leader, still constitute a formidably powerful and a well-oiled rock & roll machine, there's no doubt about that. And that's one thing that certainly has been repeated many times over on most every Motorhead album, The World Is Yours more successfully than others.
  6. 60
    It's a curtain call, a salute to the masters by the master himself, and frankly, as moderate as The World Is Ours might be, one cannot deny that what Lemmy says, goes.
  7. Jan 27, 2011
    Nary a tippy toe strays from the well-trodden path; it's as if Lemmy and the boys spent every couple of years locked in a studio with their own discography and no outside noises that might besmirch the purity of their brand. There are occasional hints of self-awareness.

    This album was a revelation as I thought it would just be another Motorhead album, but bugger me I think they are getting better! Added to that the production and sound is great. Long live Lemmy! Expand
