SAXON IS ONE OF THE GREATEST ROCK BANDS OF ALL TIME!

"I'M SICK OF ALL THE BAD REVIEWS OF SAXON. THEY WERE
AND ARE ONE OF THE GREATEST ROCK BANDS. I DON'T CARE
WHAT YOU WANT TO CALL THEM "METAL" OR WHATEVER. AT THE
TIME THEY CAME OUT ROCK MUSIC WAS HORRIBLE AND NOW ONCE
AGAIN IT STINKS! I'D STILL RATHER LISTEN TO THIS THAN THE
GARBAGE THAT MTV AND RADIO IS PLAYING! I'M GLAD SAXON AND
OTHER BANDS LIKE UFO, Y&T, WHITESNAKE,MOTORHEAD, KISS ETC.
ARE STILL AROUND AND SOUNDING BETTER THAN EVER. TRY UFO NEW
ALBUM IT'S A KILLER AND THE BEST ROCK ALBUM OF THE YEAR!
SO STOP YOUR WHINING AND LISTEN TO SOME REAL ROCK N ROLL!"
Could've been better

"I can't believe that this best of compilation doesn't have killer tunes like Wheels of Steel, Strong Arm of the Law, Princess of the Night and Power and the Glory, instead they decided to put the mellower songs on this CD and I thought that they're remake of Christopher Cross's Ride Like the Wind was mediocre, Saxon is supposed to be a fast hard rocking metal band. not just a radio friendly rock band, but the positive side of this CD is that it has my favorite song by Saxon called Denim and Leather, I wish that this CD would contain hits from 1979-83 but oh well, if you love Saxon, I would recommend Wheels of Steel or Denim and Leather as your first pick."
