This is the Album was the high before the fall. Fire Ball Bad Boy Brian Robertson having been replaced by Maestro Moore who's power and style re-ignited the Lizzy sound to make this Lizzy's most successful and best Album.After all this the band then fragmentend when Moore quit the band by going AWOL part way through the subsequent American tour owing to Lynott and Gorhams drug addictions/partying seriously affecting the quality of the live shows.

Do Anything you Want too, Waiting for an Alibi, Got to Give it Up, With Love, Black Rose are the Bands Killer tracks which to this day sound as good as ever. The quality of harmonies and interwoven sound twin guitar pioneered by Robertson and Gorham is raised again on this Album as clearly Gorham had to raise his game to compete with GM and the result is sensational.

'Sarah' is PL dedication to his first Daughter with a heart felt Ballad.

S&M is a funky-jazz song with experimentation in sound on drums and Guitars which nestles well amongst the stronger songs and Toughest Street in Town and Get Outta Here are heavy riff based songs which again fit well.

What is disappointing about this Album to me is that it so strong and yet Lizzy's decline thereafter was rapid with only a handful of songs with same musical and lyrical spark delivered across the rest of the 3 studio Albums.

Moore used this as his Launch pad to better things and Lizzy used this as their swan song as only on rare occassions did the band spark to this level beyond Black Rose with PL thereafter loosing his way and swaying into different genres unsuccessfully.I like so many bought all these later Albums always in hope of a return to form which other than the odd songs unfortunately never came.

Want some upbeat good old hard rock that still stands up as a fun hard rocking listen? Then you definitely want to take a trip back in time and bathe in the glory of this amazingly uplifting album.

`Sarah' is an incredibly laid back bass heavy track, absolutely drenched in pop sensibilities; it must have broken some charts back when it was released. These types of songs are perfectly contrasted with the guitar heavy `Do Anything You Want To' and `Got to Give it Up' which are two of the best tracks on the album.

Philip Lynott has remarkable vocal skills, fitting tracks perfectly whether they are more groovy pop songs or the more straight ahead hard rock. Whatever the style; when needed his voice can soar.

The perfect track for anyone new to Thin Lizzy or wishing to check out the album before buying it is the amazing closing track `Roisin Dubh (Black Rose) A Rock Legend' which combines everything that is good about Thin Lizzy.

I don't drive but I imagine that this album is what people mean by driving music. Sometimes listening to this I am transported to some infinitely long (and massively wide) American road in an open top huge car kind of like the one in the Red Hot Chilli Peppers video for `Scar Tissue'. It's an album packed full of melody which even today manages to sound quite firm and sort of heavy in a vague sort of way anyway, Still a must buy, that is sure to pick up anybody who suffers from SAD thanks to its links to dopamine production (probably).

Do Anything You Want to
Toughest Street in Town
S & M
Waiting For an Alibi
Sarah
Got to Give it Up
Get Out of Here

Black Rose has got to be Lizzy's best album. Gary Moore had just replaced 'Robbo' Robertson on lead guitar and I think his presence instils a more metallic edge in their music than in previous recordings. 'Do Anything You Want To' is the anthemic opening track with that memorable kettle-drum beat and 'Toughest Street In Town' is as heavy and hard-hitting as it sounds. Lizzy's other hit single 'Waiting For An Alibi' is another classic rocker and 'S&M' is a funk-laden satirical piece on you know what. After the mild ballad 'Sarah', Lizzy crank it up again with the anti-drugs 'Got To Give It Up', the punkish 'Get Out Of Here', the soft rockish, but nevertheless smooth 'With Love' and finally, the multi-layered title track which was probably influenced by Led Zep's Stairway to Heaven, to an extent. This was Lizzy's highest placed album, peaking at #2 in the UK charts back in early '79 and after this, things would never be the same again. Imagine if Gary Moore hadn't have left...

I find that I don't normally agree with the general consensus regarding a band's greatest work, but in the case of Thin Lizzy's Black Rose I have to agree with the masses - this is their best album.

Coming at the tail end of their peak period, which started with the underrated Fighting, Black Rose is the last truly great Thin Lizzy album, before the band began it's gradual, but notable, decline. The recruitment of Gary Moore on lead guitar palpably breathes new life into the band, and his effect on their material is obvious. His love for his Irish roots (and for writing songs about them) is clear and as a result many of the tracks have a distinct Celtic flavour, particularly the finale piece Róisín Dubh. The relationship between Phil Lynott and Gary Moore was always volatile (causing the latter to join and then quit the band on three separate occasions) but it is clear that musically the two made a brilliant team.

After the mess that was made of the prvious three Thin Lizzy deluxe remasters, with incorrect tracklistings and false claims that the audio mixes used were new, Thin Lizzy have finally been given the treatment they deserve with Black Rose. The studio album has never sounded better, and the bonus second disc contains many unreleased and/or hard to find songs, including Thin Lizzy's recording of Don't Believe A Word in its slower form, as originally penned by Lynott. A comprehensive booklet with extensive notes on the recording period is also a great addition, and I admit I usually don't even look at that sort of thing, but found the insight very interesting (and quite candid).

In summary, this is Lizzy's finest hour. If you only buy one Thin Lizzy album, make it A Rock Legend.
