Bad Reputation ends a very fertile run of albums from Lizzy, from their eponymous '71 debut, with one album a year, except for the two in '76, up to this one. After this they took an extended break, 'Robbo' disappearing from the scene at the time for a spell, and Downey absenting himself for a while when they reconvened in '79, finally returning with Black Rose.

As the cover pic suggests, this album is largely the work of a three piece. You wouldn't know that from simply listening to it. It sounds like the classic Lizzy lineup at its peak. The music ranges from the hard funky rock of the title track (Downey's drumming on this is colossal: he's a true Titan of the tubs!) to the slinky soul of Dancin' in The Moonlight, taking in mid paced rockers like Soldier of Fortune and Opium Trail whilst still leaving space for Phil's sensitive side, on such tracks as Southbound and Downtown Sundown.

It's a bona fide classic: great songs, great playing... just great. The bonus track BBC sessions show how tight and together they were. Phil writing great tunes, with good collaborative efforts filling the album out, Downey and Gorham bringing musical finesse and fire to Lynott's great vocal/bass leadership combo. Black Rose has some great tunes, but it's not as consistently excellent, and Chinatown and Renegade are, for me at any rate, poor showings by classic Lizzy standards. Thunder & Lightning is brilliant, but it's so much an '80s metal album that it's almost a totally different band, and something of an anomaly in the Lizzy catalogue.

Whilst the remastered sound is stunning, personally I feel the extras are only so-so. Some of the Lizzy reissues add a lot of different material, here you simply get several reiterated tracks from the album in BBC sessions.

Thin Lizzy followed up the great "Johnny the Fox" album with "Bad Reputation" - the first time Tony Visconti produced for them. What we have is a selection of great songs, with lacklustre production. The grit and rock of "Johnny the Fox" is missing, and it can only be down to Visconti, who totally fails to capture the energy and swagger of Lizzy at their peak. All the rubbish spoken by Visconti about "Live and Dangerous" being "75%" overdubs has been totally discredited by Downey, Robertson and Gorham. That was what Lizzy were capable of, and Visconti tried to take the credit. I would have only given this three stars, but the BBC sessions show exactly what could have been achieved - they are head and shoulders above the studio album tracks. What could have been...

...but still great. Released during the Fighting-to-Black Rose era that is widely regarded as the band's peak period, Bad Reputation features a good mix of heavier tracks with more soulful numbers, and features some notable lead guitar work from Scott Gorham after usual point man Brian Robertson missed the majority of the recording due to a bar-brawl injury. It could be argued that the album is somewhat lacking in the huge hits that made the band so popular, but as a person who's always preferred Lizzy's less well-known material to their 'greatest hits', I consider that a good thing - there are some hidden gems here that I had never even heard of before but that I now adore.

I must say, I was somewhat disappointed when I found out Bad Reputation's remastered release was only a single disc edition when all the other recent Thin Lizzy remasters have been two-disc sets. Bad Reputation is one of my favourite Lizzy albums and contains my all-time favourite Thin Lizzy track (the rocking Opium Trail), and the fact that it was comparatively lacking in extra material was a bit of a let down.

However, this album has a lot of pros to outweigh the cons. Unlike the laziness and disappointment that surrounded the first three reissued albums - the totally incorrect bonus track listings, the lack of new audio remastering (despite being advertised otherwise) - this album is presented properly, with a good sound mix created specifically for this edition and packaging that actually reflects what you are buying. It's not the greatest remastering work I've ever heard, but it is an improvement over previous CD releases. The BBC Session recordings are also a nice bonus, essentially acting as alternate versions of the album tracks they represent.

After the bad taste the last 3 Lizzy Deluxe Editions seem to leave in many fans mouths (advertised as new remasters, Universal simply used the 1996 versions and didn’t change the booklets or adverts) – I’m glad to say this reissue of Lizzy’s much-loved 8th album “Bad Reputation” is a real improvement on the former 1996 outing - and packs some nice surprises in the bonus department too. Here are the Soldiers of Fortune…
