Again apologies for being late to the table on some of these already discussed new releases. Got a copy of this recently and man, I can't quite make up my mind WHAT to think of it. I guess I'm somewhere in the middle with it. I'll say that ol' Shirley's production is a tad better than some stuff he's ,ermm..touched. Now I loved some of the classic Lizzy stuff--the main 3 (I guess) lps Fighting / Jailbreak / Johnny The Fox. THis new venture is def a nod to the old TL,but something is just not quite there for me here. Maybe this cat's voice is one issue. I just get the feeling he's copping Lynott like a cover band. And he has very little range to his voice compared to Phil. Also I dislike some of the lyrics. That Judas tune? Yikes---pretty cringeworthy that one.I listened to all those old lps the other day,and this still just comes off as a very nice try. I can see some loving it,but I doubt I could ever totally embrace it. One of those 'wanna like it but can't quite get there' releases, I guess. Oh well.. T
