thin lizzy were not true heavy metal perpetrators; more accurately, out and out rockers with a feeling for pop. the late phil lynott has a growing core of younger fans, as word is passed down that even though he had his demons he was an outstanding performer. this is their best studio album and it contains two classics, 'the boys are back in town' and the title track. both spit and crackle, bass and lead guitar burst out of the speaker at loud volume, and throughout, the gentle, laconic voice of lynott delivers his poetry. don't allow his death to see thin lizzy fade from the memory.
