4.0 out of 5 stars Wow!, 5 Sep 2014
Never 5-star, glad tho I am JP have made a new album, it's 'probably' not as good as their best, so, therefore, cannot be 5 star. That doesn't matter. We are SO lucky to still be getting NEW albums from these old rockers...what will we do when they do stop? I have been expecting no more once they reached 50, now they are all into their 60's! Look at Magnum, the two main men are nearly 68 and STILL producing album after album of great new stuff.

This sounds good to me on first listen...heavy, but the pace changes quite often which is good. Good sound too, not all mushy like a lot of stuff these days. I'm 54 and tho I like some metal I tend to favour Magnum, Heep, Purple… Read more
Rock 'n' Roll Telephone [Deluxe] ~ Nazareth

Sorry, but Big Dogz was truly dull and boring - it just didn't rock, which is odd for a rock band. It's the only one of theirs I gave away, though their other 'worst' was Play n the Game, which I never bought on CD also very slow and dull.

After one play I can say that I really like this one. It is how Nazareth should sound; gutsy and rocky, with a couple of tasty ballads too. SO much better than Dogz. The News was great, as were the 3 albums before. Glad they did a good one to finish with. Well...come on, they can't really be Nazareth with… Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars OK, 9 July 2014
sORRY TO BE THE ONLY 3 STAR REVIEWER here.....I often play a Bob Cd as a change from the wonderful Magnum cds that keep coming out. Of course, really Bob just adds the vocals to another band's songs, but I do like them. This, to me, is the weakest of all his solo cds. Some here say the songs are stronger than others but I would say after several listens over several years I cannot actually recall any. Production is 'good' but far too dense and dramatic, as with Ten cds; it needs thinning out. The next, and last, 'Immortal' is much better as far as songs are concerned, but production again too thick.
