It's not often that I find myself blown away by a brand new album however every once in a while a superb record like Big Dogz comes along and really blows away the cobwebs.

Following 2008's sterling comeback 'The Newz' I had been aching to hear what the band had up their sleeves however I honestly didn't expect the band to better the last one. After all Nazareth have been rocking around the world constantly for 43 years now. And that's not 43 years on and off either. It's been non stop for the band, year after year. If you're not that familar with Nazareth's back catalogue and have read the Big Dogz press release I guess you'd be forgiven for thinking that they must surely be short on new ideas and it must be just hype for the sake of nostalgia. The best thing is Big Dogz doesn't sound at all cliched or laboured in the slightest, infact it's so fresh it could be mistaken for a bands debut.

Everything you want from a great rock album is all here. For starters the production is positively stunning, Dan McCafferty's vocals are perfectly placed inside the mix whilst Pete Agnew's bass simply shines from start to finish. Pete is a fantastic bass player and only ever plays what the song needs, it's a real treat to hear his playing cut through so well, you don't have to try and get into the groove because with Big Dogz your already there. It really is like experiencing the band play in the studio in front of your very own eyes which needless to say is absolutely awesome.

It's also worth heaping well deserved praise on long term guitarist Jimmy Murrison and drummer Lee Agnew for their efforts in ensuring this album is a winner throughout. Although The Newz had some utterly brilliant moments 'Big Dogz' essentially sounds more of a full throttle band effort.

Completely different than anything the band have ever done before-which after 43 years and 21 previous studio albums-must be difficult. A heavy bluesy feel in the main , similar in a sense to Black Country Communion in style and production but far far better (and BCC is a damn fine effort !) this is the sound of a band completely at the top of their game. Dan McCafferty on this showing is so far ahead of any other Rock vocalist it is frightening and the individual efforts of fellow band co-founder Pete Agnew on bass and backing vocals, 17 year band veteran Jimmy Murrison on guitars and production duties and "new boy" Lee Agnew (after all he has only been drumming with Nazareth for 12 years !!) are stunning. Great rock tracks abound-Big Dogs Gonna Howl, Claimed, No Mean Monster, Lifeboat, Watch Your Back, Sleeptalker to name but 6 plus a couple of more radio friendly songs in Radio and The Toast but the album rises from great to brilliant by the inclusion of ballads When Jesus Comes To Save The World Again and Butterfly which contains a very emotionally charged lyrical tale. All this plus the celtic feel of Time And Tide and- if you choose the deluxe edition, a 5 track acoustic CD.
An absolute belter of an album which simply gets better with every play. Turn up to eleven and listen to the finest British rock performance for many a year.
10/10 doesn`t do it justice.

Yes i do love everything this band release.I must admit the last couple of releases on Salvo (2XS,Sound Elixir & The Catch) were not the strongest material the band released, Although each of the albums had their strong tracks on them.The second half of the last releases from Salvo "Cinema" was a real return to form, Which has since carried on with the subsequent releases.The last release (The Newz) got alot of favourable reviews from the media, But never got the credit it deserved.This cd "Big Dogz" is another great offering.The main difference with this cd is where-as Nazareth are well known for their rock tracks, " Razamanaz,Expect No Mercy,This Flight Tonight,Bad Bad Boy & Broken Down Angel" The strongest tracks on this cd are probably the ballads."When Jesus Comes To Save The world Again" is so different to anything the band have recorded before,But it is one of my favourite Nazareth tracks,But for me the best track on here is "Butterfly" a really excellent ballad, Perhaps it will take over in the Nazareth cannon as the new "Love Hurts"The band really should release it as a single,Yes i know the single is not what it used to be,But perhaps it could get the band some well deserved air play.If you love your rock music,Get this cd at all costs !!

Incredible just when you think Heep's 'Into The Wild' is the contender for album of the year,then another one comes along!!,consolidating their superb return to form with 2008's 'The Newz',Nazareth have released another fantastic disc,a 5 star stunner.

Proabably their heaviest disc since the 70's 'Big Dogz' rocks like a mutha! with a superb razorsharp production which suits this music to a T.

Where to start? the album has no weak moments,11 fantastic tracks,heavy rockers such as 'Big Dogz....','Claimed' & 'No Mean Monster' are rough and ready rockers which growl at you from the speakers before the superb 'When Jesus Comes ...' brings the tempo down with some plaintive vocals from Dan McCafferty.

Following that opening quartet would be hard for many bands but NAZ' are old pro's and throw in a couiple of radio friendly tracks 'Radio' & 'Time and Tide' before the ascerbic biting lyrics of 'Lifeboat' make you think and the hilarious 'The Toast', make you smile.

The disc comes to a finale with the thundering 'Watch Your Back', stunning 'Butterfly'(those taut emotion drenched vocals) before finishing with the foot stomping 'Sleeptalker'

I cant praise this album high enough,the band's musical prowess is a joy to hear,this is easily the best Nazareth disc since the 70's ,thats 2 in a row,they've finally got back in with a label/producers that can harness the best out of them,long may it continue,c'mon lads a double header with Uriah Heep' would sell out across the UK,Its also time for a 40'th anniversary live double disc,with this disc,The Newz and a sterling back catalog of classics,this is the time to cement your return to the heavy rock arena that you so deservedly belong to.
