I've given this 5 stars because of the bonus tracks and the price of £4.47 make it that for me.
Without the bonus's and at a higher price probably four stars.
It's not their best, but it's far far from their worst either.
As documented in other reviews it was a departure from the previous BUT it is certainly worth getting for the title track alone and bonus tracks which are actually great on this.
There is abit of filler on the original album and frankly some is embarassing when it comes to the likes of 'just let me rock'. If you view songs 1 to 4 on their own however you've got a great minialbum.
Bonus tracks are great on their own and for anyone whose a devotee of the band will be particularly interesting, I certainly haven't seen them released elsewhere.

After 5 classic discs in a row it was a bit of a shock to this reviewer when this disc didnt hit the spot like the previous ones.Its not a bad disc but it certainly struggles to live upto what went before,certainly the production i hated at the time and dont much care for now, i believe Beamish gave too much gloss and some of the band's power was lost,the drum sound on the original vinyl/cd's was of the 80's and the remaster has adjusted this slightly,but you cant keep a good band down and there are still one or two absolute classics here,certainly the title track and sailin to america would always be in my set list the former a typical saxon metal classic dripping with history,imagery and great playing, the latter just a stunning song historical again and not about selling out for the yankee dollar as some fans believed.As for the rest well they are listenable and well played but they dont live up to the legacy of the earlier classics only 'do it all for you' standing out from the pack because of its commerciality,no doubt had some hair metal band,take your pick,covered it it would have rocketed up the charts,the bonus tracks are interesting in as much as several originals are heard pre glossy production and the truth is laid bare they are ok nothing more,sadly this inconsistency would haunt the band for the next decade before 'dogs of war ' signalled a come back

FINALLY the saxon catlog from the 80s is being done the right way, crusader took saxon to another level wich did not disapoint many fans, now 25 years later this is considered a classic metal album all over the world, my only problem in 1984 with this record was the same problem i have with it in 2009, i thought and still think just let me rock was the worst saxon song ever and the video for it was just as bad, great bonus tracks here and great booklet!!!!!!!!!!! a must for any saxon fan

As with all this Saxon remaster series it is an excellent reissue. Good liner notes, sounds great and loads of bonus tracks.

If you a fan this whole series is essential.

Saxon were/are a NWOBHM classic act. No real complaints

Some regard this as a real horror show in saxons back catalogue, i like it but at the same time i feel they were trying to be something that maybe they werent, and a lesser crime may be stated when i suspect they were really trying to target the american market with this one.
The album has a very 80s feel , the production is odd but i will lay my neck on the block and say i really enjoy this album. The songs are what counts in the end and there are some real clinkers here.
This isnt as strong as wheels of steel or denim and leather but it is still strong so dont be shy.

The 'Crusader prelude' attempts to set the scene to great effect and leads into the title track itself, which starts off quite promising, if a little of a change of direction for the Barnsley rockers. Then the immortal words, 'who dares battle the saracens?' It sounds SO BAD, laughable now. I got this album when it came out and it seemed ok at the time, but now....?

'Sailing to America' 'Just let me rock' ( with that annoying guitar twiddle ) continue in the same vain.

As advised wholeheartedly on the site by several reviewers, get, Wheels of Steel, Strong Arm of the Law and Denim & Leather, these albums have not dated, unlike this twoddle.
