4.0 out of 5 stars Classic Nazareth,Expect No Less...., 11 Sept. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Expect No Mercy (Audio CD)
Nazareths 9th album(in a remarkable 7 years) returned the band to a grittier ,more rockier sound,possible due to criticism of the previous slicker sounding 'Play 'n' The Game' from 1976,no matter the reason and the scrapping of the first attempt,this is a likeable album.Housed in a Frazetta sword n sorcery sleeve(he would become more prominent with Molly Hatchet)your immediately expectant of a heavy rock tour de force and while the title track and the likes of 'Revenge is Sweet','gimme Whats Mine' deliver,there is more to this disc and repeated listens will deliver enjoyment for years.

You want blues then seek out the likes of 'Busted' and the self explanatory 'Kentucky Fried Blues' while the more sedate strains of 'Shot Me Down' and 'Place In your Heart' while etch themselves in your head and you'll sing along with a grin on your face.

Urban legend had it that the scrapped version(unbelievably without the title track!) was a harder version and the released product a compromised version,well certainly there is no evidence of that presented by the alternative versions,worth listening to but ultimately diluting the overall album,it might have been better had they been presented as a second disc.

Still another quality disc from a severely under rated band.
