Top customer reviews
Sure, 'Red Star Falling' has a potent lyrical kick and the closer, 'Atila The Hun' is as bone crushing as some of the groups best work but for the most part the album falls into the 'just another Saxon album' category. 'I've Got to Stay Alive' and 'Let Me Feel Your Power' definitely have hints of a re-used classic Saxon riff about them and the commercial edge that helped make the band so popular has disappeared now in favour of out and out volume. Melody is in short supply throughout in fact and I agree with the reviewer who objects to the compressed sound, I mean, let's face it, Biff and the boys are PLENTY loud enough already!
Overall, while the 'The Inner Sanctum' is not a bad record (if you like Saxon already you won't hate this) it does nothing to add to the bands legacy and the unsympathetic style of production has pretty much robbed the band of their identity (a lot of Biff's usually soaring, powerhouse vocals are tucked well back in the mix) turning them into 'just another competent heavy metal outfit'.
Saxon are as alive and burning as they always were. To be fair a little more polished but the basic Saxon drive is all still there.
There were shades of " Red Line " in "Need for Speed", Red star falling was a hark back to various late eighties early ninties social commentary rocksongs that still works well.
Biff voice is still as cracking as ever and he gives it a full spectrum workout over the entire album. All in all a fabulous album, better then I could have hoped for. Can't wait to see them out on the road.
