Wow, wow, oh my goodness

"I think I've finally discovered THE most underrated rock band from the 70's- early Thin Lizzy. Absolutely HORRIBLE that radio stations think "The Boys are Back in Town" and "Jailbreak" are the only songs worth playing. That is just... TOO incredibly narrow-minded beyond words!

The REAL Thin Lizzy was pretty much everything besides those two songs, such as the debut album. I am honestly FLOORED right now that these guys have amazing instrumental skills, fantastic songwriting, and an ability to mix some rather unique guitar tricks with extremely catchy vocal melodies. This feels like the kind of band that can jam away and make it really exciting if they wanted to, or, they can write short, emotional songs with lots of energy, excitement, and passion.

I get the feeling these guys can do anything they want. The early albums, which are honsetly MUCH heavier than I went in expecting, are absolutely great. Heavy in an early Blue Oyster Cult kind of way. The debut album has everything from guitar riffs, to solos, to spectacular and powerful lyrics, to emotional vocals, to catchy verse melodies, to just... everything! What's even more incredible is how many of these songs have their own sound and style, similar to the White Album by the Beatles almost... okay, maybe not quite *that* diverse, but close enough. More diverse than most hard rock bands, that's for sure.

A band that just has extreme underrated talent. The lead singer may be one of the very best from the 70's. Picking a favorite song is impossible- these guys are so good at exploring different styles and coming up with solid songwriting that picking a favorite is just a VERY hard thing to do. Just know the debut album, along with the follow-up called Shades of a Blue Orphanage, are nearly flawless records. For guitar lovers, there's something here. For people who just like great songwriting, there's plenty here for you too."

"I wont even waste time setting this up. This unfortunately overlooked album is one which transcends all of time. Not at all what I was expecting when I finally purchased this along with 'Shades'. But I was enthralled and entranced from the first second that Phil opened his mouth, the first pick of Erics guitar and the first drum beat. And that feeling didn't leave me until the last note of 'Things aint workin "oueet" down at the farm' You know what I mean... While a strikingly different sound than the Thin Lizzy that everyone knows and loves, it is a secret jewell for the real Lynott and Lizzy fans. I only wish I had discovered it long ago, but much better late than never.
As another reviewer stated..it is one of those albums that grown on you the more you listen to it. There is so much depth to almost every track that you will hear startingly different layers each time you hear a song. By the 8th time all the way through I was hearing an entirely different album from the first time around and there was something spiritual about it. You may think that sounds corny, if so, buy the album and see for yourself."
Cool Album

"Interesting to hear early Thin Lizzy. It's not the straight forward hard rock they later became. It's moody, very musical and still rocks...very gothic and poetic in it's own way. I really enjoy this CD if I'm in the mood for something different."
