5. The Wörld Is Yours (2010)
The last fifteen years or so had seen Motörhead on the form of their lives and releasing some of their best music. How much of that was down to the influence of producer Cameron Webb, only he and the band knows, but one thing that cannot be denied is that they were a formidable team in the studio!
The Wörld Is Yours was a rambunctious album with a no-frills, red-raw production that hit like a heavy weight punch in the gut! “Born To Lose” and “I Know How To Die” were a fantastic opening couplet that set the tone for this beast of an album and Mikkey Dee’s drums sounded like they could be used to demolish buildings. The guitars of Phil Campbell were massive and forever in your face like a petulant child and with Lemmy sounding like only Lemmy could – his Rickenbacker rumbling along in tandem with his whiskey-sodden roar – The Wörld Is Yours proved to be a modern Motörhead par excellence.
With no weak link to be found – “Rock ‘n’ Roll Music”, the frantic “Outlaw” and the closing “Bye Bye Bitch Bye Bye” were undeniably exceptional – the best song by far was the brutish “Brotherhood Of Man”. The bastard child of “Orgasmatron” – both musically and lyrically – Lemmy poured scorn on mankind as only he could.
