This review is from: Expect No Mercy (Audio CD)
Nazareths excellent 10th album gets a makeover. Naz fans will be keen to get their paws on this one as it has the bonus second disc of the "legendary" first take of EnM. Strangely enough the first version of the album didn't include the title track, which is the best track on it!! Overall its a bit of a mixed bag in terms of musical style. Theres the full on rock axe attack of the title then you get the country and western track with Place in Your Heart! Confusing eh? However this makes for a great overall package with Nazareth demonstrating that they are no one trick pony. Stand out tracks are Expect No Mercy; Gone Dead Train; Kentucky Fried Blues, and Revenge is sweet, which will satisty the hard rockers amongst you. The remainder is mid tempo rock with a sprinkling of ballads. If you like the harder rock side of Nazareth i'd reccommend No Mean City over this one. As for the bonus disc i'd say its for the hardcore fans only rather than the uninitiated. Great reissue.
