5.0 out of 5 stars If you missed the NWOBHM buy this., 8 Nov. 2003
At their peak, which musically was these 2 albums, but commercially probably the next album Denim & Leather, Saxon were up there with Maiden as THE happening Brit Metal band. Their particular brand of metal was hard to catagorise, ranging from straightforward rockers with a touch of the AC/DC to more melodic songs such as the great 747 and Suzi Hold On to the longer more epic Dallas 1pm.
Quite why this bunch of lads from Barnsley did not succeed in the same way that Maiden or for that matter Def Leppard we will never know. At least a good retrospective of their early works is avaialble in this package.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Songs - Pity it isn`t Meat Loaf singing, 8 Nov. 2003
This review is from: Bad For Good (Audio CD)
It`s not really fair to criticise Steinmans singing of the songs that he wrote for good 'ole Marvin, but the truth is his voice does not do them justice. That said, everything else about the album still makes it a worthwhile buy and a must have for all Meat Loaf and Steinman fans. Highlights are the title track, the inevitable Boy/Girl interchange on Dance In My Pants and the moody "When Rock and Roll Dreams Come Through", which was released as a single and given away free with the original LP.
Overall. great songs, great production and a huge IF ONLY!!
Meat do us a favour and record this the way it was meant to be.

5.0 out of 5 stars Probably the best Southern Rock Album Ever, 3 Oct. 2003
This review is from: Strikes (Audio CD)
A bit controversial I guess but I rate this album higher than anything produced by LS, MH et al. I first bought this on vinyl some 21 years ago and am glad to say it is as good and timeless as ever. Every track is good but real highlights are the soulfull Left Turn on a Red Light, the rocky and more commercial Baby Blue, the awesome cover of Free`s Wishing Well and the sublime Highway Song, which surpasses Freebird by some way. If like me this type of music turned you on in your formative years buy this and watch your hair grow as you listen to it.
