Motorhead - The World is Ours Vol. 2: Anyplace Crazy as Anywhere Else

by Kevin Wierzbicki

.
This is a really nice 4-disc live package (2-CDs, 1-DVD, 1-Blu-ray) containing all or parts of Motorhead shows at three of 2011's biggest overseas rock festivals: Wacken Open Air, Sonisphere and Rock in Rio.

With a mix of oldies, cuts from the (new at the time) The World is Yours and biggies like "Ace of Spades" and "Overkill" the set list is a good one although the 11 songs taken from the Sonisphere and Rock in Rio shows are repeats of songs played at Wacken so if you play the CDs or view the film all the way through you'll hear some songs, like "Killed by Death," three times.

Fans should also be aware that the set list here, generous at 17-songs long in the Wacken portion alone, is virtually identical to the set list found on last January's The World is Ours Vol. 1. That probably matters little to those who love Motorhead the most though; "Just 'Cos You Got the Power" is a shameless lift from Ted Nugent's "Stranglehold" and "Going to Brazil" is Chuck Berry on steroids but otherwise much of the band's music sounds alike anyway, with only slight variations in Lemmy Kilmisters' raspy vocal delivery differentiating the songs.

But as Lemmy reminds the crowds repeatedly, "We play rock'n'roll!" and the reason that Motorhead can draw 100,000 fans is that they play it very well. The presentation may be high tech but the music is no frills and Motorhead fans wouldn't have it any other way. On a somber note, the band dedicates the Sonisphere portion of the program to their ex-guitarist Wurzel (Michael Burston) who had just died the day before.
