I have waited 12 years for this to be released on CD as it was one of the first Saxon albumns that i bought on vinyl. Even after 15 years it is still one of their slickest albumns. I would strongly recommend this to any fan new or old of Saxon and also it is a great introduction to the band.

The cover gives it away a bit. Someone mentioned this was their Def Leppard album and I must say the same thought crossed my mind listening to it. It's still undoubtedly Saxon. But the production is a bit more polished, with a more radio-friendly sound, more upbeat melodies with topics that call on you to stand up and rock rather than the traditional subjects of war or transportation. I'm not really into the party rock lyrics but the music is fine. Back On The Streets has to be one my favourites from Saxon and there are some good riffers like Everybody Up and lets not forget the sobering Broken Heroes.

That would normally make it a 3-star review, but I'm glad I got this for number of reasons. Firstly, I've been looking for it on CD for years since you hardly come across the vinyl anywhere these days (plenty of Wheels and Strong Arm if you look for them). Secondly, the extra tracks are pretty decent. Rather than filling them up with demo tapes like some of the other remasters, you get the live at the BBC Hammersmith Odeon version and the club mix of Back on the Streets, live versions of Devils Ride Out and Gonna Shout as well as the excellent Krakatoa and Live Fast Die Young B-sides. If they'd put those last two on the album and dropped some of the stand-up-and-shout tracks from side-B it would have rounded out the album better.

In any case, its Innocence, its on CD and for the money you could do a lot worse.

This is definately one of their better albums - quality all the way through. Good honest English rock to shake you to the soles of your boots. Slick production gives the band a good sound too. I saw them promote this on tour at Hammersmith - one of the best live bands Britain ever produced.

Hi fellow saxon fans biff speaking what the hell is the album doing with only 4 stars. this is a classic. i condem those to the wheels of darkest steel where they will find new and horrible ways to be tortured. but otherwise rock on!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! saxon lives on biff.

Good album, although it's sounds a bit glamy in some songs, the band 80's decade never disappoint me.
The songs are great, Byford's voice is great as usual, top track are: 'Everybody Up', 'Devil Rides Out' and 'Raise Some Hell'.
And of course if you got the remastered version you have more worthy bonus tracks.
Any metal fan and Saxon fan should own this album, i did it, now it is your turn.

aaah Saxon's 'Def Lepard' album many a critic has quipped,even Biff has mentioned it in interviews in latter years,what kak, Lepard have never rocked this hard,they're a pop metal band,Saxon are British Steel!!This remaster gives us all an opportunity to reassess this disc and i believe it will finally come out of the shadows and be accepted as one of the bands best efforts.

Opening with the anthemic 'Rockin Again' lulls you into a false sense of security before 'Call of the Wild & Back On The Streets' come hurtling out of the speakers reminding that this band rocks.The 'Devil Rides Out' and 'Rock N Roll Gypsy' tread familar heavy metal themes but are all the more alluring for it,next up is the albums best track ,the superb 'Broken Hereos' with biff wrapping his tonsils around his usual boys own derring do lyrics,when Maiden do it its class but when Saxon do it its cliche,so say the naysayers,in fact what you have here are 6 fantastic rock tracks ,all of which should have been played in concert alot more than they were and are the equal of what went before.
The final 4 track on the original release were all pretty standard metal by numbers with only 'Raise Some Hell' standing out,all in all the original disc was a product of the 80's with some cosmetic sheen smoothing out the rough edges yet the band recieved pelters,this is a great album,give it another chance.

Bonus Tracks: 7 tracks b sides and live tracks with the highlight being 'live medley' from the original 12' single of rnr gypsy.Back on the Street from hammersmith'85 is also included,still got the original Friday Rock show tape.

The remaster sound quality doesnt really change the disc too much,too my ears ,slightly clearer ,a bit more bass,a decent release

I have just bought Innocence to complete my collection of Saxon CD`S . This is an album I have not heard for years , since the eighties as I had it on Vinyl.

Saxon were, and still are, an amazing band that I lost track of really from around 1993 . Thats only due to life getting in the way of the music as before I was buying albums every week. I found Saxon again when I bought "Unleash the Beast" which is an amazing album if you ask me.

Anyway since then I have been loving Saxon again both in the Studio and Live whenever I get the chance. OK back to Innocence. This album is the start of Saxon going through their softer american stage that included Rock the Nations and Destiny. It has been as the previously mentioned albums much maligned, but tracks such as Rockin again, Broken Heroes, Rock n Roll Gypsy are great songs . Back on the Streets is classic Saxon and the other tracks are not really fillers either. Saxon really tried with this album and I am really enjoying listening to it again.

The production is a little light but thats the eighties for you. But the songs are still there so go on , just do it.

If you already like Saxon but were put off by rubbish reviews , just get this album it is pretty darn good!
