4.0 out of 5 stars "...You've Got The Lovin' I Like..." - Loud 'N' Proud by NAZARETH (2010 Expanded CD Remaster)
Like most people I was introduced to Scotland's finest rock band by way of their kick-ass 7" single "Bad Bad Boy" when it first hit the UK airwaves in July 1973 (it capitalized on their 3rd album released in March of that year - the blisteringly good "Razamanaz"). "Loud 'N' Proud" was their follow up LP and like its predecessor, it had plenty of Seventies rock swagger to...

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the best Nazareth album, but still pretty good.
Produced by Deep Purple's Roger Glover and released on the back of thier breakthrough album Razamanaz, Loud 'N' Proud had a lot to live up to. it didn't quite live up to expectations, but taken on it's own merits it is still a very good album.

This review is from: Loud N' Proud (Audio CD)
Produced by Deep Purple's Roger Glover and released on the back of thier breakthrough album Razamanaz, Loud 'N' Proud had a lot to live up to. it didn't quite live up to expectations, but taken on it's own merits it is still a very good album.
The album can't quite decide what direction it wanted to take. Go Down Fighting and Free Wheeler are typical Nazareth early seventies stormers, but are maybe not quite as good as what you would find on Razamanaz. Not Faking It, Turn On Your Reciever and teenage Nervous Breakdown are a little more mainstream rock minus the bluesy edge of the previous album. Child In The Sun is a ballad, but in all honesty it's a pretty weak offering from a group that would later pen some fantastic slow burners. This Flight Tonight was the big hit and a Nazareth classic and it certainly knocks the album up a notch. Closing with a Bob Dylan cover, The Ballad Of Hollis Brown is a strange choice as an album closer, but the song recieves the Nazareth treatment quite well.
In conclusion, the album was always going to be compared to Razamanaz and maybe that is a little unfair; most groups only produce a quality album like Razamanaz once in thier lifetime, and Nazareth have done it many times since. Loud 'N' Proud is not a weak album, and fans of well played, well sung seventies rock will lap it up, but it has become a victim of Nazareth's own high standards. It sounds a little dated now and if you are just on the road to collecting Nazareth, there are many later albums you should collect first. Still head and shoulders above most of the pretty-person-pop that pollutes our charts these days, but Nazareth have, and continue to do better.
