4.0 out of 5 stars metal masters, 27 Feb 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Wheels Of Steel (Audio CD)
God this takes me back,first saxon album i ever bought,2.99 in the bargain bin because of a small scratch at the beginning of motorcycle man,how i laughed at the hapless shop owner handing over the bargain of the century,well that week anyway,from the opening of motorcycle man to the frantic ending of machine gun this is and always will be a superb example of british metal,sound issues and packaging ive mentioned in the strong arm' review and the same views hold here,but the magic of the music shines thru,747 and wheels of steel rock out the speakers and your head automatically goes into headbang mode and your feet tap the floor repeatedly,cant believe its almost 30 years since this was released,suzie hold on a stunning example of a rock ballad lightens the mood before machine gun closes the original album.

The bonus tracks are a mixed bag the demos of suzie' and wheels are interesting nothing more, the live stallions' from glasgow i believe has been released before so its down to the donington tracks to raise the bar and despite the average sound quality they are a decent addition to the disc a pretty good representation of the band in the early days wheels' and 747 standing out as usual,so its another 4.5 stars if i could, and a neck brace to see out the album.

ps just a thought,can you imagine if saxon had just held back and kept motorcycle man/wheels/suzie and 747 and paired them with h m thunder/strong arm'/takin your chances/hungry years and dallas 1pm,would that have been the greatest metal album of all time,damn right!!!
