expect a tornado with a few shoes thrown in
on 10 January 2017 - Published on Amazon.com
Yes, it's true. Nazareth dishes out a slice of disco with the title track "Expect No Mercy". Before you hang your head in shame thinking about what a musical abomination disco was, take a listen to the fierce, raspy vocals of Dan McCafferty as he rips through the song accompanied by hard-edged (ZZ Top-styled) guitars. The band makes a perfect pairing of hard rock and disco that yields an explosive opener. Then the music switches gear for "Gone Dead Train", reducing the tempo with a chugging, galloping rhythm. McCafferty doesn't let up for a minute. He takes charge of the song like a master over his dominion and turns out another catchy, driven hard rock classic. Next, the band ushers in a bit of country and slows down the tempo once again for "Shot Me Down". ("First disco, and now COUNTRY?!?" you say. I know you'd sooner eat hairballs than listen to these genres, but...) It's the most radio-friendly tune on the album, almost finding root in Eagles' territory, but unlike the Eagles, it never sounds artificial or blandiose. It has the soft rock sensibility of a good, old-fashioned tailor-made bar ballad. "Revenge is Sweet" picks up the pace with a rapid beat and snarling vocals, but the music itself comes up short lacking that special touch that would want repeating. "Gimme What's Mine" is a much stronger track with a spiralling rhythm that propels the album forward making a smooth transition into "Kentucky Fried Blues". The hefty, almost mechanical rhythm of this song quickly becomes addictive with its hypnotic beat. I can't say much for "New York Broken Toy" other than it sounds like undeveloped filler, bringing nothing interesting to the lineup. "Busted" is a country song usually associated with Ray Charles or Johnny Cash. It resembles Bob Dylan's tiresome, c'mon-let's-all-sing "Everybody Must Get Stoned", feeling like an unnecessary inclusion despite McCafferty's flawless vocal rendering. The brisk, poppish, and country-like "Place in Your Heart" has a cheery, ironic sing-along quality, but sounds too simple and short for this release. "All the King's Horses" is a perfect way to close the album with its settled-in, veteran sound. This song leaves the listener in a dustcloud wondering if he was just hit by a tornado...a musical tornado known as the mighty band Nazareth. (3.5 stars)
expect good rockin
on 6 July 2010 - Published on Amazon.com
I am glad to hear about the newer release of this disc with the alternate tracks on it. that's going to rock. This one though is pure vintage rockin by the scottish masters. It's hard blues rock and straight metal melodic style and it's alot of fun. It has two wonderful ballads on it. It's not as great though as the next release 'no mean city' but it's certainly better to me than 'play n the game' which is a fine rocker. The band was putting out really solid records during the seventies and I don't think one of them is bad. Their early stuff is more ecclectic but it's GOOD rock although by this time they were putting out top notch metal rock that was well written and pulsating. It's different than 'hair fo the dog' in my opinion more straightforward like the other reviewers said. But common this is a great metal cd! I don't think there's one song on here that's not excellent music of it's type. The ballads are better than most bands too. "you shot me down' is a classic song by any standards, it could be remade into a number of styles it's that good. Of course 'expect no mercy' rocks hard and the boys played very well on this one. In the 80's they'd experiment with new wave hard rock mixture and do that well even. But this was still the band at it's peak. Savage, and well focused. the bonus tracks here are different than on the new 2010 salvo edition! these are the versions on this the eagle version , a few may be the same but most are not, 'Greens' (B-side), 'Desolation Road' (B-side), 'Gone Dead Train' (Edited Version), 'Expect No Mercy' (Alt version), 'Place In Your Heart' (Alt Edited Version), 'Kentucky Fried Blues' (Edited Version) & 'Expect No Mercy' (Live). so you now have to have both version for the rare songs on here.
You came along surprise surprise...

Nazareth seemed to be getting back to their hard rock roots but let's face it; there was no `Razmanaz' or `Hair of the Dog' in the pipeline. Yes the band was still producing quality hard rock but `Expect No Mercy' was no better or worse than the two records that immediately preceded it. The title track is a capable rocker in expert hands but again it is not at the level of earlier band triumphs. I would agree that "Shot Me Down" is one of their better ballads and "Kentucky Fried Blues", "Gimme What's Mine" and the "Busted" cover are all interesting tunes but nothing really all that memorable. The liner notes are kind of funny; describing the band as hard rock's or metal's last bastion of hope during the punk onslaught totally ignoring the fact that some of the best and heaviest early metal came out in the mid to late seventies (Priest, AC/DC, UFO and Motorhead to name a few) and Nazareth at this point in their careers were NOT metal. Collecting the later output of bands like Nazareth is a risk collectors take but most of us know that whether we like the band a lot or not, the creative wheels have lost their collective. So listen to `Expect No Mercy' with that in mind and you may enjoy...but `Hair of the Dog' it ain't.
