This is not Thin Lizzy.It is however an album hugely influenced by Lizzy.Scott Gorham was 1/4 of the classic Lizzy line up so has every right to be part of their legacy. He has a distinctive guitar sound which of course is evident throughout. I have always liked Ricky Warwick and his vocals sound the same as he has always sounded. Maybe the odd phrasing is similar to Phil Lynott as is the way some lines are delivered.There is some of the twin and harmony guitar play that Lizzy made their own evident throughout. Damon Johnson supplys plenty of blistering guitar play.Mendozo and Degrasso are both solid giving a platform for the rest of the band to perform.The music far exceeded my expectations and I cannot find a track I do not like. Bound For Glory has perhaps become over familiar as the safe track to introduce the band (in advance of the album) with its obvious comparison to the classic Lizzy sound.All Hell Breaks Loose the opener while a little restrained has a great guitar solo. Kingdom Of The Lost has an obvious Celtic sound. Bloodshot has an Irish feeling with its guitar hook.Kissin The Ground and Hey Judas have Warwick's delivery of his vocals close to Phil Lynott but sounding 100% Warwick.The guitar solos in both songs a strong nod to Lizzy.Hoodoo Voodoo has a very catchy hook which is infectious and I defy anyone not to tap their feet or nod their head.Another great guitar harmony and solo. Valley Of The Stones picks up the tempo a little with guitars full on. Someday Salvation brings the music back down a little but is another catchy little number.Before The War full of emotion with a killer guitar solo that sadly ends too soon. For me the standout track is Blues Ain't So Bad.Haunting riff a real blues song as the title suggests.Read more ›

The classic Thin Lizzy sound lives on in the Black Star Riders.

People might get hung up on who is/is not in the band, but, when it comes down to it, all that really matters is how the album sounds....and this one rocks.

Hearing echoes of the Johnny The Fox/Bad Reputation albums (with a splash of Emerald)- loving it! Scott Gorham has put together a great band, most of whom have toured as Thin Lizzy (great gig, lads).

If you like Thin Lizzy, then you should give this album a listen.

Raising a glass to Phil. Slainte!

When work began on this album it was going to appear under the Thin Lizzy name. Trying to please all the Lizzy fans and do justice to the memory of Philip Lynott must have been an unusual and specific pressure directing the writing of the new songs. With a change of name, and in the line up, 'All Hell Breaks Loose' can be viewed as a transitional album that allows the new band to discover who they are and establish the identity of Black Star Riders in its own right. What will be really interesting will be to see the direction they choose to take things in on future albums. Thin Lizzy have always been known as a live band and that will no doubt continue with Black Star Riders who are already committed to a heavy touring schedule for the rest of 2013. Many of the tracks here come with built in opportunities for the audience to sing right back at them.

Opening with the legendary dual guitars, the title track is something of a surprise as it is not as aggressive as its name might suggest. The anthemic single 'Bound for Glory' that fans are already familiar with is up next. This gives us the first of Damon Johnson's killer guitar solos. Ricky Warwick has a voice that is both powerful and melodic, shown off to its very best advantage here, singing his own lyrics. 'Kingdom of the Lost' has wonderful Celtic feel with Ricky looking back to his Northern Irish roots.

With 'Bloodshot' and 'Blues Ain't So Bad' Scott Gorham silences those who have in the past questioned his contribution to the writing for Thin Lizzy. After the pulsating high energy of 'Kissin' the Ground' things get slowed down just a little with the brooding lyrics of 'Hey Judas.' The driving 'Before the War' continues the war theme established early on.

Having blasted the classic 'Bound for Glory' over the last few weeks on Planet Rock, I was looking forward to an entire LP of classic 70's Lizzy. Saving the CD for my commute home - long enough to listen to the whole album a couple of times without the Mrs having a moan...I set off with the volume cranked suitably.
Two cracking tracks to start with (the second is 'BFG'), I then felt a tinge of disappointment as the remaing tracks appeared to fall some way short of the 'Jailbreak II' I was hoping for. However, as the CD started to spin for the second time, the whole album started to grow on me and I began hearing hooks and melodies that had been missed on the first spin.
I can't remember the last time a Lizzy LP took a couple of listens to confirm it was classic status, but we'll forgive Scott and Co for this one - a fine effort without the main man at the helm - good job - the boys are certainly in the suburbs at least...

being a big Lizzy fan I ordered this immediately and it has the hints of Thin Lizzy in there. Great guitar playing and some great songs - should be great in concert where new songs tend to come to life. I have subtracted one star because I think they could have filled up the extra space with a few other songs or demo versions. Recommended to Lizzy fans and any fan of rock music.
