THREE IN A ROW!!!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Denim and Leather (Audio CD)
Simply put this was the third of a trio of classic albums by saxon after the 'wheels' and 'strong arm' discs,at the time they were head and shoulders above any other of the nwobhm bands maiden and lepard included,sadly this wouldnt be sustained.Listening to this remastered cd its apparent that the sound quality is superior to the first 3 remasters and indeed thats true of the 'power' and 'crusader' releases.From the opening riff of Princes of the night this disc transports me back to my teenage years and indeed Denim and Leather's lyrics pretty much sum up my youth,fantastic memories,the original album is class from start to finish and the bonus live tracks highlight why the 'Eagle has landed' should have been a double,play it loud and midnight rider particularly unlucky to have been left off.Saxon were on a roll at this point and this is a perfect example of a great british metal band at the top of their game,buy and enjoy,relive your teenage years,just watch yer neck,too much headbanging can severely curtail your weekend.
