Motörhead: The World Is Yours

Sound — 8
Well if you're into Motrhead, you'll know they never change their sound greatly. Basically this CD is a bit more bluesy than their later works. Songs like "Bye Bye Bitch Bye Bye" and "Rock N Roll Music" are based on blues, but its still rock. Other than that most of the songs are quite fast, which is what you'd expect from Motrhead. This CD was released in 2010, which was Motrhead's 35th anniversary. SO the back of the CD had XXXV on it.

Lyrics — 9
Ok, first on the singer skills. Lemmy is a great singer and always has been. His voice isn't as rough on this CD as on the earlier works. The lyrics are your standard Motrhead ones. Sex, drugs and rock n roll. Well all in all, the lyrics are your standard Motrhead lyrics. Nothing special, just your no bullsh-t Motrhead stuff.

Overall Impression — 8
Motrhead is Motrhead and therefore no one compares to them. The best songs on the album are "Bye Bye B-tch Bye Bye", "Born To Lose" and "Rock N Roll Music". What do I love about it? Motrhead is one of the few bands who still make great albums, many albums by other bands have disappointed me greatly lately. But Motrhead hasn't made a bad album since "March r Die" (which is the only album by them that I dislike). There is nothing I hate about this album. If it was stolen or lost I would buy a new one for sure, no questions asked.

    one of the best albums by Motorhead in the 00's! topped only by Inferno, in my opinion.
    I dig it. I like the grooves and riffs on this one. They're a little cooler than usual.
