OFFERING is the best album that Axe ever did. Bobby Barth’s lead vocals and lead guitar are white-hot, and Michael Osbourne’s rhythm guitar is strong and assertive. The entire first side is terrific, and the second side is, too, until the last song or two. I own this album on cassette, and it’s great that it’s now been made available on CD. Unfortunately, Michael Osbourne is not around to enjoy it; he died in a car crash in 1984.
