5.0 out of 5 stars Expect no weak watered down pop rock., 14 Nov. 2005
By 
This review is from: Expect No Mercy (Audio CD)
This album was a watershed in Nazareth's career. This album is the pinpoint where Nazareth found their niche and was able to channel all of their best qualities into albums. The first album to show Nazareth's perfected brand is this one, Expect No Mercy.
Nazareth have always been at their best when they consentrate on hard bluesy rock, storming power ballads and tear-jerking weepies. This album has it all. When you insert the c.d into your music system, make sure the volume is cranked down because the opening track starts with a real bang. The tracks Gimmie What's Mine, Kentucky Fried Blues and New York Broken Toy really give the album a dirty, bluesy edge that was not quite so prominant in past releases and this will appeal to the American fans amongst us. Gone Dead Train is littered with double entaundrers, whilst Shot Me Down, Busted and Place In Your Heart will have you singing in the shower. This brings you up to the final track (on the original album listing), All The Kings Horses will have you weeping gently into your nightime cup of cocoa.
All in all, not many Nazareth fans will tell you that this album is not their most favourite Nazareth album, but most will nonetheless have the album in the top 5. If bluesy, dirty, stripped down rock in the style of early AC/DC is your cup of Earl Grey then pick yourself up a copy of this.
