SAXON: HEAVY METAL THUNDER!

A Listmania! list by J. Anderson "jonanders25" (Blighty)
 
Saxon
1.  Saxon by Saxon
The list author says:
  "1979. Dodgy album cover, and a slightly dated sound, but does contain Stallions Of The Highway, Backs To The Wall and the mildly progressive classic Rainbow Theme/Frozen Rainbow."
Used & New from: £3.39

Wheels Of Steel
2.  Wheels Of Steel by Saxon
The list author says:
  "1980. THE Saxon album, and one of THE heavy metal albums with not a filler in sight. Fast and furious from start to finish, plus that legendary title track - even Suzi Hold On rocks! Buy it, NOW!"
£17.95   Used & New from: £2.24
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (24 customer reviews)

Strong Arm Of The Law
3.  Strong Arm Of The Law by Saxon
The list author says:
  "1980. Fast on the heels of "Wheels..." comes more strong arm metal - 8 more tracks of quality heaviness. Heavy Metal Thunder, the title track and the pure class of Dallas 1pm!"
£22.64   Used & New from: £4.41
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (12 customer reviews)

Denim And Leather
4.  Denim And Leather by Saxon
The list author says:
  "1981. Three big singles Princess Of The Night, Never Surrender plus And The Bands Played On make this a must, and the title track sums it all up for the NWOBHM. Pete Gill's last appearance on drums."
£13.95   Used & New from: £4.69
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (25 customer reviews)

The Eagle Has Landed - Live
5.  The Eagle Has Landed - Live by Saxon
The list author says:
  "1982. Essentially a live compilation of most of the best tracks from the last three albums - only let down by the fact it wasn't a more comprehensive double album - though extra tracks do now exist."
£7.76   Used & New from: £1.99
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (10 customer reviews)

Power And The Glory
6.  Power And The Glory by Saxon
The list author says:
  "1983. First studio album with drummer Nigel Glockler, and a slightly more polished sound. The title track, Redline, This Town Rocks, Warrior and the epic majesty of The Eagle Has Landed all standout."
£5.10   Used & New from: £5.09
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (11 customer reviews)

Crusader
7.  Crusader by Saxon
The list author says:
  "1984. The last Carrere label album. Great cover & title track, but Sailing To America does sum up the overly commercial rest. Things seemed to go downhill after Biff dyed his hair blond."
£9.48   Used & New from: £3.44
3.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (11 customer reviews)

Innocence Is No Excuse
8.  Innocence Is No Excuse by Saxon
The list author says:
  "1985. Steve Dawson's last appearence on bass. A clinical sound, but does have lots of great songs - Rockin' Again, Back On The Street, Rock 'n' Roll Gipsy, and the excellent Broken Heroes etc."
£11.25   Used & New from: £8.90
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (14 customer reviews)

Rock The Nations
9.  Rock The Nations by Saxon
The list author says:
  "1986. Over polished sound. New bassist Paul Johnson - Elton John on piano for Party Til U Puke. Great title track, plus Battle Cry and singles Waiting For The Night / Northern Lady are the best bits."
Used & New from: £3.59
2.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (4 customer reviews)

Destiny
10.  Destiny by Saxon
The list author says:
  "1988. The album that for some was the end - and certainly was of the first stage of Saxon's history. All the effort seems to have gone into the cover version of Ride Like The Wind - the rest is poor."
£11.25   Used & New from: £4.85
3.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (3 customer reviews)

Rock 'n' Roll Gypsies
11.  Rock 'n' Roll Gypsies by Saxon
The list author says:
  "1989. A live album of odds and ends that feels rushed - fading the audience in and out between tracks is a bit irritating too."
Used & New from: £61.44
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (2 customer reviews)

See buying options
Solid Ball Of Rock
12.  Solid Ball Of Rock by Saxon
The list author says:
  "1990. Excellent follow up to Destiny, and the start of phase 2 for Saxon. Still commercial, but getting heavier. Requiem, Refugee, Baptism Of Fire, I'm On Fire and the title track all stand out."
Used & New from: £4.83
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (6 customer reviews)

Greatest Hits, Live
13.  Greatest Hits, Live by Saxon
The list author says:
  "1991. Simultaneous release of both video and album of Saxon's 10th Anniversary show in Nottingham (before the Solid Ball Of Rock album was released). Welcome Nibs Carter on bass!"
Used & New from: £6.87
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1 customer review)

Forever Free
14.  Forever Free by Saxon
The list author says:
  "1993. Another solid release, with another great title track. Also has the poignant Iron Wheels (for Biff's father) plus Can't Stop Rockin' and a cover of I Just Wanna Make Love To You."
£12.28   Used & New from: £9.01
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (5 customer reviews)

Dogs Of War
15.  Dogs Of War by Saxon
The list author says:
  "1995. Graham Oliver's last album. Another excellent and much heavier title track that hints at the way forward, plus The Great White Buffalo and Demolition Alley shine brightly as well."
Used & New from: £10.50
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (2 customer reviews)

See buying options
Eagle Has Landed 2
16.  Eagle Has Landed 2 by Saxon
The list author says:
  "1996. The second (proper) live instalment, with songs from Solid Ball Of Rock onwards, along with some old friends too. Another excellent place for beginners and catchers-up to start."
£19.26   Used & New from: £13.13
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (3 customer reviews)

Unleash The Beast
17.  Unleash The Beast by Saxon
The list author says:
  "1997. Prophetic title for phase 3 as things start to head into a heavier and less commercial sound. Having said that Terminal Velocity is classic early Saxon, while The Thin Red Line is just class."
Used & New from: £6.92
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (4 customer reviews)

Metalhead
18.  Metalhead by Saxon
The list author says:
  "1999. Like the cover art, but the album itself just seems very samey, with nothing standing out. At a push Piss Off and the title track are okay,  definately one for the real "metalheads", I guess."
£10.43   Used & New from: £4.09
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (6 customer reviews)

Killing Ground
19.  Killing Ground by Saxon
The list author says:
  "2001. My metal-brother Dave isn't so keen, although I really like Running For The Border and You Don't Know What You've Got, plus Dragon's Lair is a real nod towards Euro-metal."
Used & New from: £5.49
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (6 customer reviews)

Heavy Metal Thunder
20.  Heavy Metal Thunder by Saxon
The list author says:
  "2002. An unusual and to be applauded compilation of re-recorded classics, some of which "almost" out shine the originals - Crusader to name one."
£11.88   Used & New from: £8.98
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (5 customer reviews)

Lionheart
21.  Lionheart by Saxon
The list author says:
  "2004. Along with Unleash The Beast this is one of Dave's favs. More hard and heavy metal, though he's not fussed for Jack Tars - Justice, however is excellent!."
£9.94   Used & New from: £6.22
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (11 customer reviews)

The Eagle Has Landed Pt. 3
22.  The Eagle Has Landed Pt. 3 by Saxon
The list author says:
  "2006. Instalment three of the live legend, and this time you get the best of both worlds - disc one is full of old classics, while disc two has all the more modern songs."
£9.96   Used & New from: £3.77
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1 customer review)

The Inner Sanctum (Ltd. Cd+dvd)
23.  The Inner Sanctum (Ltd. Cd+dvd) by Saxon
The list author says:
  "2007. Another solid release. No out and out classics on show, but no duffers either. I've Got To Rock (to stay alive) is the best, but Going Nowhere Fast, Red Star Falling and State Of Grace are good."
£10.77   Used & New from: £6.25
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (15 customer reviews)
