Just got this the other day and have given it 3-4 spins so far. I listened at y-tube first,so I knew I'd dig it. Very solid release in their canon--number 22,I believe. That's pretty friggin' incredible that they have THAT many albums of material. Some would say it's easy for them as it's a pretty similar sound they call their genre. But seems that would make it much more difficult to keep things interesting as time goes on. I have 4-5 of their albums now-all recent,and IMO--these are the strongest in their repetoire. Not a fan of the early stuff-seems sorta pedestrian to me. Same way I feel about FM and House Of Lords. They've all gotten MUCH better in the later years. AS per Thunderbolt-- I actually thought that They Played Rock n' Roll was a cover of a Motorhead song! With Byford singing it,makes all the difference to me. No disrespect to Lemmy,but I never could take his vocals. I don't even mind the death growls on the one tune (Predator). They're laughable to me-every time I hear them. In other words, Saxon make these tunes work well for them. No real need for the redo of Nosferatu tho. I'd have liked either version,really. But both is kinda overkill. I'll only listen to one or the other when I spin the cd. In any event-- I'm in the camp that these guys are making their best music these past few years. Not being much of a metalhead anymore,guess that counts for something(?) T
