Thin Lizzy – Renegade
It’s a little weird to type this, given the song title, but Angel Of Death has a jazzy, trippy organ part… and becomes a huge rock song! Yes! Renegade is a challenging, beautiful listen. It’s almost Lou Reed-ish. The Pressure Will Blow is pure Lizzy awesome, and Leave This Town is an absolutely smokin’ Lizzy rocker WHEW! We’re already on fire over here, and not even halfway through!
Hollywood (Down On Your Luck) is a fun New York vs London tune, No One Told Him is yet another great Lizzy rocker (pun intended). These guys are masters! I loved all of Fats, that jazzy rock with piano! Mexican Blood is the only track that didn’t quite work for me. It’s a decent tune, but there are too many usages of the word ‘Mexican.’ I mean, I get it, right? And last but not least comes It’s Getting Dangerous, which is a decent Lizzy rock tune and a cool way to end this short blast of amazing.
I really, really, really, really loved this CD. Thanks heaps, Mike!
