Return to form,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Into The Labyrinth (Audio CD)
This is the best Saxon album since Rock the Nations. A real return to form from one of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal's original gods.
The album also sees Saxon spreading their wings. 'Battalions of Steel' could be a cross between Hammerfall and Nightwish, while 'Coming Home' sees Biff and co. discovering their blues roots for a Southern-tinged ballad.
My only complaint is that there are a few too many fillers. I removed 'Live to Rock', 'Crime of Passion', 'Protect Yourselves' and 'Hellcat' from my playlist and am now left with an almost perfect metal album.
No metalhead should be without this one.

Every album the band have released since Rock The Nations has been better. Rock The Nations is the worst Saxon album of their career!

Can't agree with you there. Rock the Nations is an enormously underrated album.
