MotorheadA metal fan can never have enough of Motorhead, especially, live Motorhead. The World is Ours Volume 2: Anyplace Crazy As Anywhere Else is a follow up to 2001’s The World Is Ours Volume 1: Everywhere Further Than Everyplace Else and is the 7th live album that Motorhead offers.

Most of the songs are very similar to those in the first volume, because they are the same songs but recorded at a different location and date. Songs were recorded live at Sonisphere Festival in the U.K. and others at the Rock in Rio in Brazil and included in the DVD. The set list includes crowd favorites like “Iron Fist,” “Ace of Spades,” “Overkill,” “In the Name of Tragedy,” and “Overkill.” This compilation also includes “Metropolis,” “The Thousand Names of God,” “Get Back in Line, “I Know How to Die,” and “Bomber.” The recordings are really smooth and easily intriguing.

The trio that consists of Lemmy Kilmister, Phil “Wizzo” Campbell and Mikkey Dee continue to impress their potential as musicians and there is no question why they have been so great for the past 35 years. It would be a bore to those waiting to hear new music from Motorhead but it still fascinating to hear and will really make a fan feel like they right there in the show because this band undoubtedly rocks live. Hopefully, new music will come soon so the next live album will seem fresh.
