Back in the day, 1975-78 to be precise, Thin Lizzy were THE band, and Brian Robertson was THE guitarist.

Find me a blues rock guitarist from that era that doesn't sight Robertson as a defining influence and I'll find you someone who can't play with soul, taste, etc.

Short and less successful stints with Wild Horses and Motorhead followed but 30 odd years have passed since Live and Dangerous and the question had to be could he still cut the mustard?

From the first beat of the opening title the answer is emphatically yes.

Sure it's classic rock, sure this could have been written a few decades ago - and a good slice of it was - but the contemporary production makes it feel both new and old at the same time. You know where you are and where it's going but that ain't no bad thing. Always a top guitarist, the surprise is that Robertson's vocals are also top notch - not that he sings lead on all of the tracks.

Despite his doubts about the feasibility of future work with this line up, we can only hope that there are tours and more recordings to come.

Buy it - diamonds of this quality were never more affordable or enjoyable.

I got this album yesterday and admittedly wasnt sure what to make of it. 5 listens later i love it.

I have all the lizzy albums and another perfect day happens to be one of my favourite albums by motorhead and i have them all.

This isnt another perfect day part 2 nor is it thin lizzy part 2 either. There is some of that distinctive tone displayed on johnny the fox etc: so there is no mistaking the player, but it is a bit more.................strict/polished?

great production, good original tunes, as well as a few reworkings of a lizzy song here and there. just a real good solid album. the first 2 tracks are good, bit strange perhaps when you think of robbos other songs.

track 3 is a reworking of its only money (for me the worst track on the disc) but from track 4 on for me this is great stuff.

check out 'running back',track 5 and the really unexpected track 'thats all', track 10.

i really like this and on the strength of it would go to see a tour of this stuff and buy a follow up album.

thats it.

Brian Robertson is one of the great guitar players from the 70s. His work with Thin Lizzy was phenomenal. Sadly, he has not released a lot of new work in the past 25 years. "Diamonds and Dirt" is a CD that I was eagerly awaiting, and could have re-established his status as a hard rock guitarist. It falls far short of achieving this goal. There are moments of brilliance, with short guitar solos that show what Robertson is capable of. However, the CD suffers from overproduction ("let's add another vocal layer here", "how about some keyboards") that takes away from the rawness and punchyness that would have fit much better with Robertson's guitar style. On top of that, there are too many tracks that fall in the "stale old stuff that I will re-record once again" category. I have played "Diamonds and Dirt" back-to-back with the brilliant "The Clan - That's All!" 5-track from 1995, Frankie Miller's "Dancing in the Rain" from 1985, Brian's collaboration with Motorhead, and some Thin Lizzy albums. Unfortunately, "Diamonds and Dirt" does not stand out in this comparison. On the shelf it goes, unlikely to make it too often into my CD player.

Don't get me wrong, I love Thin Lizzy but anybody who knows Robbo's work will also know that his Thin Lizzy period may not be particularly representative of his natural style which, in my humble opinion, shows itself far more with his Wild Horses period and his short spell with Motorhead. What a fantastic album 'Another Perfect Day' is and I think now regarded as one of their best thanks in no small way to Brian's brilliant guitar work. I read somewhere that Robbo felt liberated to stretch out a little without the discipline of the harmonised work with Scott Gorham. I've listened to this album non stop for the past few days and it's got it's teeth into me - I absolutely love it and I really can't fault his vocal contribution or his playing which is brilliant throughout - it's certainly better than most out there. We should all be grateful that one of Scotlands greatest talents has found time to put this together at last - it's classic melodic rock but certainly no worse for that (I just bet Joe Bonamassa has got himself a copy). Let him move on from his Lizzy days - rock on Robbo, more of the same soon please and what about a tour?, it's way overdue. I'm going to give this five stars and I didn't have to think too long before I did it either!!

Arguably Gary Moore was the best guitarist Thin Lizzy ever had,but for many fans its Brian Robertson that was their favourite .Unfortunately,anyone expecting Robbo to pick up where he left off after being fired by Thin Lizzy,can forget it.Nor is this Another Perfect Day,part 2 for the Motorhead army.Instead,we have a few Lizzy re-runs,some Frankie Miller tunes and some Robbo original tunes.It's all well played,quite polished sounding, yet bland and dull in parts,and dull is a word you would never asociate with Robbo at all! There are some sporadic splashes of his trademark les paul,wah,wah dripping tone,but NOTHING to indicate and compare to the man's genius from the 70's.The re-do of Lizzy's Running Back is in my view crap,and sounds like Quo meets The Faces and the slower version isnt much better either.The sleeve notes say that Robbo's mate Soren went through a bag of Robbo's riffs and tapes and the songs were built from here.If this is the case,and the best stuff was used here,I'D THROW THE REST AWAY!He's already said theres little chance of a tour ,as he reckons he couldnt get his band together,which in reality probably means "guitar solos interfere with my drinking". In all fairness to Robbo,at least he's doing something new and he isnt exploiting the Thin Lizzy name and bleeding every penny out of it which Scott Gorham is ! This is the one album this year I really wanted to enjoy,and was so looking forward to, such a pity!If you are new to Robbo's work don't buy this ,buy[Thin Lizzy [ASIN:B004D2XOMC Live And Dangerous]],then you then will have him at his very,very best.If you have the Lizzy catalogue and his only Motorhead album,then try Robbos Wild Horses stuff,then get this!Come on Robbo,lets get cracking on album number 2!
