Another of the band’s trademarks is the twin-guitar sound of Gorham & Robertson, and their input shines through very well on this recording. (Robertson is replaced by other guitar players on many of the band’s later recordings!). Also, in order to help the album deliver a more stereophonic output effect, Phil’s voice is multi-tracked during the choruses on several of the tracks. This, along with some excellent guitar harmonies can be best experienced when one listens to the CD through stereo headphones.
Stand-out tunes which captured the public’s imagination at the time of the album’s initial release include the two singles - ‘The Boys Are Back In Town’ which reached the Top 10 and ‘Jailbreak’ which was a minor hit. Other catchy numbers on the album include ‘Romeo And The Lonely Girl’ and the concert favourite ‘Cowboy Song’. The latter of these two commences with a quiet first verse before Brian Downey’s drums together with the dual guitars of Gorham & Robertson help raise the energy level of the song and in the process, the listener is taken back to more familiar territory.
If you like Thin Lizzy and you wish to acquire one of their studio recorded albums from the distant dark 70’s, then I recommend this CD.
Are all Lizzy fans too old too know how to work the Internet?
Do they all have high-powered, pinstripe-suit corporate jobs nowadays, and therefore no time to be writing Amazon reviews when they should be prioritising, building shareholder value and crafting business cases?
Are they too busy lining up to add to the endless list of reviews (170 and counting as of today!) of the abomination that is Linkin Park's "Meteora"?
Has the world simply, as my dear Dad would say, gone mad?
Or maybe, just maybe, here's another thought.
As Brian and Scott break for the border, chiming in over Brian's drums and Phil's bass to take "Cowboy Song" into that wonderful second verse, have that same world and those same Lizzy fans, simply realised that there is nothing, really nothing, that needs to be said about this album?
That's what I like to believe, anyway. Doing so restores my faith in human nature. Just like listening to this.
