5.0 out of 5 stars Timeless, 3 Mar. 2010
This review is from: New England / Front Page News (Audio CD)
Classic, traditional British rock music, imbued with superlative musicianship. They don't make 'em like this anymore! Sure, it feels out of kilter with today's bombast and sludge dominated rock guitar bands, but this lot were an inspiration to 2 of the genre's biggest and best - Iron Maiden and Thin Lizzy - and probably countless lesser groups. Taut, adroit drumming, coupled with supportive bass lines beef up the sound, while the guitars twist and weave throughout the songs, packing some serious riffing in between more considered picking. Great value for 2 albums of such quality as well! Plus this lot are still touring and knocking 'em dead across the globe. I saw them recently at the Queen's Hall in Edinburgh - my first time - and was blown away I cannot understand why they have not had more success, but attention spans have diminished in the modern age, along with taste and appreciation of fine musical culture. Some of us still adhere to the old precedents though!
