Damn good attempt!,

This review is from: All Hell Breaks Loose (Audio CD)
Having blasted the classic 'Bound for Glory' over the last few weeks on Planet Rock, I was looking forward to an entire LP of classic 70's Lizzy. Saving the CD for my commute home - long enough to listen to the whole album a couple of times without the Mrs having a moan...I set off with the volume cranked suitably.
Two cracking tracks to start with (the second is 'BFG'), I then felt a tinge of disappointment as the remaing tracks appeared to fall some way short of the 'Jailbreak II' I was hoping for. However, as the CD started to spin for the second time, the whole album started to grow on me and I began hearing hooks and melodies that had been missed on the first spin.
I can't remember the last time a Lizzy LP took a couple of listens to confirm it was classic status, but we'll forgive Scott and Co for this one - a fine effort without the main man at the helm - good job - the boys are certainly in the suburbs at least...
