The Myth of Lemmy is one of speedfreak exuberance fashioned into a lean, mean machine of blackened annihilation. Still, there's something sad about a man in his mid 60s condemned to repetition, with a fanbase of spoiled children hearing their favorite story end and crying, "Again!" It isn't enough for Motörhead to have written "Love Me like a Reptile" and "Dr. Rock" once, right? That's not to say that The World Is Yours isn't outlaw born-to-lose rock-and-roll music, because it is — it even has songs called "Outlaw," "Born To Lose," and "Rock N' Roll Music." But this release is also geared to let even the most amnesiac newb hit "Play" and be able to follow the plot. 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, like the ironically titled "I Know What You Need," a cry for help disguised as a crowd-pleasing earthshaker. And "You can struggle like a maniac/But you'll never get free" could just as easily describe Lemmy's predicament — that is, if he ever attempted an actual genre jailbreak.
