The album itself was similarly ambitious. Surrounding himself with accomplished musicians including Joe Hubbard (jazz bassist) and Bill Nelson as guitarist and co-producer, the album does showcase some strong musical talent and skilful songwriting. Well produced, Warriors has a raw sound built around powerful drumming, percussive fretless bass and raucous guitar. Whilst definitely being an album of it's time, (how else could it be with all that fretless and slap bass)it does stand up fairly well today. There are some standout tracks - The Iceman Comes, Warriors, The Tick Tock Man, My Centurion and The Rythmn of The Evening. The extra tracks are all good too apart from the "lost" track Nameless and Forgotten, which maybe should have been.
After this album, he released Berserker, famous for the ridiculous white and blue makeup, and the career started to spiral. Some would argue that he didn't release another good album until 1994.
