There's soulful blues, heavy guitar and very unique tunes like Marie Celeste all belted out by the most diverse singer going.
What more could you ask for.....
.....apart from some more consistent pricing. Come on Amazon, don't deprive music fans of this utter gem by charging such sky high prices, please.
Been watching this CD on here since well before it was released and it has changed price every day. I've seen it as high as £16.50 but it's yet to reach what I paid for it at a Union gig merch stand (a tenner) and even though I have had it a while, I'm still checking daily just for the hell of it to see how long it takes them to see sense.
Sort yourselves out Amazon.... I've stopped buying from you, how many others are doing the same. Don't assume just because HMV is in trouble you have no competition so can rip us all off.... it won't work, there's plenty more places to get CD's from (and I'm still buying plenty of them, but not from you)
You should be ashamed, is it not enough to avoid paying UK taxes, but you want to fleece your UK customers as well? good luck with that then!!
The first track You're my Jesus kicks off the album brilliantly & then you power through each track, Favourite track Wreck my Scene heralds the last few songs & before you know it you are fading away into Sawtooth pt2.
Time to play it again!The World Is Yours
But The World is Yours carries as much edge as it does melody, stretches further than the band's initial brace of releases and gets stronger on every listen.
`Sawtooth Mountain Ride,' the short acoustic intro that leads into the raw and roll blues rock of `You're My Jesus,' may indicate business as usual for The Union but as you delve further in to the band's third offering you realise this is an album that's smarter than the average blues-rock bear.
It's built from the same template as the first two albums, with blues-edged riffing and melodic harmonies forming the framework, but this time around The Union have added a lot more colour to that template - both light and dark
'Tonight I'm Alive' is a nice slice of melodic hard-pop that carries just a touch of Terraplane, the melodic rock and hard pop band that featured Luke Morley prior to his forming of Thunder with fellow ex-Terraplaners' Danny Bowes and Harry James.
By contrast the Zeppelin-esque vibe of the title track carries both a dark tone and brooding edge, while `What Doesn't Kill You' employs big beat and big riff sections (complete with Robert Plant-like wails) that also hearkens back to the days of Led-lined rock Gods striding the musical world.
There are also some solid, to be expected staples on The World is Yours.
'The Perfect Crime' is a chunky, funky slice of blues rock, countered by lighter numbers such as the acoustic-led ballad `Lost to the Wind.'
`Fading Out of Love' features a fine blues vocal from Pete Shoulder as does the slow, balladeering rock `n' blues number `Tangled Up in You.Read more ›

Brilliant CD from one of the UK's best bands. A must buy if you like guitar and blues driven rock with brilliant playing and vocals.Published 1 month ago by M. Richards
Having already owned their second album, I went for this, wondering whether it would be as good. It's great and right up with my favourites.Published on 4 Jan. 2014 by Barney Gee
I bought this as a present for my partner and do reject it!! I need to order one for myself - it's a great follow up and don't be deceived by the intro of the first track - if... Read morePublished on 5 Nov. 2013 by Miss Jayne Davies
The Union's best album yet! There isn't a poor track on there. If you like their other albums, or liked Thunder, I highly recommend you buy this!Published on 29 Aug. 2013 by JoshWP18
Now, I've liked the work of Messrs Shoulder and Morley in the guise of The Union - certainly for the maiden and follow up albums - but this, their third effort, is a little more... Read morePublished on 19 Aug. 2013 by J. M. Green
Not quite what I expected but a good album nevertheless. I think the cover is a clever design making it appear to be progressive when it is more rock and roll orientated.Published on 21 Jun. 2013 by Susan Dean
Luke Morley is a class act. He's unearthed a great foil in Pete Shoulder. Live, The Union exude quality. Read morePublished on 18 Jun. 2013 by Doublecross
Saw them at Download last year, Great vocals coupled with the guitar work of Luke Morley,
Bluesy but can still ROCK out.
