  • I have to agree with the one reviewer who refered to this album and band as being “criminally overlooked”. Most people only know them from their main US hit “The Boys Are Back In Town”, but Phil and the boys have put out so much great rock music, it does seem a crime to ignore the rest of their incredible catalog. Mr. Lynott’s soulful vocals are absolutely some of the finest in rock history. By this time the dual guitar attack of Scott Gorham and Brian Robertson were in full swing, as were the on point drumming stylings of Brian Downey. While I love all the previous albums by this great band, this was the first where everything just clicked (although I do love Night Life). I’m no Seger fan, but the opener of his “Rosalie” is a great rock moment. After which comes some of Lizzy’s finest compositions. Highlights include the heartfelt “Fighting My Way Back”, the upbeat “King’s Vengeance”, and the incredible rocker “Ballad of a Hard Man”. If you love classic, soulful hard rock, this album is a no-brainer: just do it.
