On a par with Highway song live. The bands best studio record "Marauder" is full of hard rocking, melodic, soulful, classic rock music. As a previous reviewer has said "there is not a dud track here". Buy it you will not be dissapointed.

What a truly brilliant, no frills, uncomplicated,barn storming rock album. I've owned this since it first came out & I have never, never tired of it.
Yes - it is even better than the much admired "Highway Song Live" album(& that tells you how good it is).
"Strikes" , another fans favourite, although a very decent album, on the whole, gets nowhere near this classic in my humble opinion (the marvellous Highway Song,the standout track on "Strikes" excluded !!)
Every song is fantastic. Not a single poor track, no fillers, just pure unadaltered excellence.
From the storming "Good Morning" & "Dry County",to the slower "Diary Of A Working Man" & the uplifting "Rattlesnake Rock N Roller" , it's an album Skynyrd would have been proud of ,although a bit more frantic than anything they ever did(& isn't Ricky Medlocke playing with Skynyrd now ??)
A must for all rock fans - if you don't own this you really are missing out on an absolute gem, a definitive rock classic
I love this album - buy it & I'm sure you will too.
If you do buy only one Blackfoot album get this. If you buy this you'll probably feel the need to get Highway Song Live - go mad,get them both !!

Without doubt this was Blackfoot's finest album. From the storming opener 'Good Morning', to the wistful closer 'Searchin', every track is a corker, no fillers here. Ricky Medlocke produced the finest singing of his career to match the most consistent set of songs they ever released. The albums prior to this were more authentic perhaps (i.e. they sounded more like Lynyrd Skynyrd) and the albums after went further into commercial territory, but this album was the ideal mix between the two. This remains one of the best rock albums I ever came across, and 20 years on I can still listen to this with a big cheesy grin on my face. No frills, no pretensions, no A-Levels required to understand it. A classic.

Blackfoot broke into a UK rock market dominated by the NWOBHM (New Wave of British Heavy Metal) acts in the early eighties. And they did off the back of solid Southern Rock albums like Marauder from 1981 as well as working hard on the concert circuit where their set features many classics from Marauder.
Blackfoot were great fun but could also be more melancholy, such as here on Diary of a Working Man. Social awareness appears too, in the form of Fire of the Dragon lamenting drug addiction. But it is the fun, uplifting songs where Blackfoot really shine and guarantee to make you smile. This album opens with Good Morning, and it is a great wake up call. Fly Away is a great pick-me-up and Dry County must contain the best double-entendre of any song (listen to it and work it out for yourself).
For the 21st century, the forty minutes or so of music seems a bit mean as there are no bonuses included. But the tracks hang together well and more tracks would be superfluous. The music is timeless and Rick Medlocke (now a member of Lynyrd Skynyrd) is just a great character vocalist. Recommended more than Molly Hatchet or Lynyrd Skynyrd any day.

...and this is mine. By a mile. If not longer. When this was released it took myself and the Glasgow rock scene (All hail The Venue!) by storm.

There are no weak tracks, no fillers, no throw aways, just great songs, great energy and the feeling that you've just had a great old time listening to great rock'n'roll.

Opener Good Morning epitomises everything that was good about Rock music in the late 70's early 80's. If this song don't move you, you're dead, that simple.

It would be fantastic to see them all back together, rather than Ricky with some young muso's, but without Jackson Spires (RIP), who knows what will happen.

I was lucky enpough to be at the Glasgow Apollo when they toured this album, and it remains in my memory even now. We had a Confederate flag which the band signed afterwards, and which Ricky noticed from the stage. God, I wish it were then again!!!!

As you will have gathered I love this album to death.

Please buy it and listen. Trust me (and those other reviewers, too), you will not be disappointed.

Rock on.

C.

Blackfoot are a Florida based Southern Rock band started around 1970 by bassist Greg T. Walker and Singer/Guitarist Rick Medlocke (of Lynryd Skynyrd) Their style combines the flavor of Southern Rock with a mixture Hard Rock and Heavy Metal.

Marauder is the band's fifth studio album. It was released in 1981 and has went on to become one of the fan's favourite Blackfoot albums; released during the band's creative and commercial high point, and spawning the famous tracks `Fly Away' and `Diary Of A Working Man.'

This was to be the last Blackfoot album before they changed their sound dramatically with the inclusion of synthesizers and a change in songwriting approaches.

For the most part, the album is a mixture between storming heavy numbers like `Good Morning,' `Too Hard To Handle' and `Rattlesnake Rock And Roller' with mid paced Hard Rock tracks and slower, quieter tracks like the delightful `Searchin' as well as the aforementioned `Diary Of A Working Man.'

Stylistically, the album is a nice mixture of everything that the band are good at and the quality of musicianship and songwriting is excellent. The album, alongside Strikes and Tomcattin' is often considered to be one of the three best albums that the band have ever released.

If you want some want some very fun music that takes the Southern flavor of Skynyrd, Outlaws and Molly Hatchet, but delivers it with the intensity of Iron Maiden and Judas Priest, then there is nothing so suitable to your tastes as the classic era of Blackfoot, which definitely includes this album.

Overall, if you are interested in Blackfoot or want more Southern Rock but harder and heavier than usual, then you really ought not be without a copy of Marauder. Its well produced, balances heaviness and commerciality and is simply packed full of excellent music and live favorites.
