4.0 out of 5 stars Thin Lizzy - Renegade 1993 Metal Blade Remaster, March 3, 2011, 24 Mar. 2011
This review is from: Renegade (Audio CD)
Firstly I'm a big Thin Lizzy/Phil Lynott fan. I have, at some point, owned all the releases, on Vinyl and have, over a number of years been replacing them with CD issues.

I bought the original CD re-issue's and then the 1996 remastered versions of the 1974-1980 releases (Nightlife - Chinatown). I was reasonably happy with those remasters but thought they could've been done a bit better, I found them quite bass heavy.

I've only just become aware of the 1993 Metal Blade remasters of Black Rose, Chinatown, Renegade, Thunder & Lightning & Life "Live". The only available remasters of Renegade, Thunder & Lightning & Life "Live" as far as I know are the 1993 Metal Blade issues, which I have recently purchased.

So for Thin Lizzy fans the Metal Blade reissues sounds fantastic compared to the original CD reissue and the 1996 remasters, Phil's voice has been brought to the fore and there is a good seperation and clarity of all the instruments, the bass is improved but not to the point where it takes over.

Now to the songs,the 1st 3 are classic hard rocking Thin Lizzy songs, full of emotion, the 4th song Leave This Town is good but not as good as the previous 3. Track 5 Hollywood picks it up again and is one of my all time favourite songs. Track 6, No One Told Him is a nod to the more commercial helpings from Black Rose. Then there's a change of style for the last 3 songs, Fats and could be taken from the Johnny The Fox era, Mexican Blood is a hybrid of Thin Lizzy and the sound of Phil Lynott's two solo albums and the last track heads towards Thin Lizzy style, but the keyboards soften it up maybe a bit too much in my opinion.

All in all an excellent Thin Lizzy CD, with a slightly flawed style consistency.

If you like Thin Lizzy & Phil Lynott's solo albums, you'll like this.
