5.0 out of 5 stars stunning power sadly no glory, 10 May 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Power & The Glory (Audio CD)
I've never understood the negativity towards this album,for me this was the end of the glory years for saxon,5 stunning albums in a row this could and should have propelled saxon right to the top.From the opening riff of power and glory to the thunderous finale of eagle has landed this is metal at its finest,Jeff Glixmans original production gave this a razor sharp edge and the remaster enhances the sound further.Who can fail to enjoy the likes of redline/warrior and the superb watching the sky? why does a track like nightmare not get the respect it deserves,there is not a duff track here,certainly this town rocks is probably the weakest but it mentions the crowds of scotland!!! aah the glasgow apollo,fine memories,so thats good enough for me.

The bonus tracks are certainly interesting,a lovely remix of suzie hold on, should have been a hit,a slightly out of place 'live' denim and leather and then the demos,which while listenable and a worthy inclusion are never going to upstage the final versions,the demos which never made it are ok and certainly turn out the lights a tad poppy for my liking,a sign of things to come,but all in all a decent release well worth the price,things would never be the same for quite some time after this classic album.
