Favorite Saxon Album

    This is another hard one for everyone to think about. Although
    I really like what some unfortunates call the classic Saxon albums
    (they are all classic!) I think I would have to go along with
    Eagle part 2, or the mighty Dogs of War. Its got everything a
    Saxon album should. A blinding title track, a great ballad (hold
    on), an epic track (The Great White Buffalo) and some balls out
    boogie numbers (Big Twin Rolling & Yesterday's Gone). And
    the rest of the album is great as well!! So get thinking.
     

  2. My favorite Saxon album thus far has to be UNLEASH THE BEAST. In my opinion, this album should be ranked right there with ACDC's BACK IN BLACK, Maiden's NUMBER OF THE BEAST, Priest's BRITISH STEEL/SCREAMING FOR VENGEANCE, ZEPPLIN'S 4 and others as one of the greatest recordings in the history of heavy metal/hard rock. Every song is a masterpiece. I also love DOGS OF WAR, EAGLE 2, FOREVER FREE etc. As a diehard fan of 18+ years, my opinion is probably strongly biased. However, I don't believe Saxon are capable of putting out a lousy album and this includes the so-called "lighter" albums of the mid/late eighties. They all had some great songs on them. Saxon are one of the greatest bands of all time.

    For a non-live album, I have to go with "Solid Ball of Rock". I personally love all the live stuff though! "Rock and Roll Gypsies" and "Eagle part II" are awesome. Mix the old with the new, it doesn't matter. I also like "Greatest Hits Live" on Video! I would love to see Eagle Part II released on Video, now that would be one to see. I love the old band along with the new band. It's great to go back and listen to the old stuff and then to the new stuff and see how the band has evolved, both in sound and musical direction, with the newer version of the band much heavier in music style. None the same, I will always love the band.

    ...I'd have to say Power and the Glory.

    But Dogs of war is a close call and I really like Rock the nations too...But hey, they are all great!

    I too, prefer the live stuff. Usualy when I listen to a Saxon record, i just have to switch cd's to hear that same song live. <img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/ohwell.gif ALT=":\"> I have always loved live records by any band...

    For studio records, I hafta say Power and Glory with Solid Ball of Rock close behind.
    The song 747 is worth a whole album alone though... my absolute favorite Saxon track ever. :)

    its a really hard one this but i think it has to be metalhead
    great songs and great production i think on this album saxon keep there sound that we all know and love but with a modern feel good saxon hes hoping killing ground will do the same job
     

  19. I have to agree. Every album thus far has always been good. The songs are longer than most band's and have a certain "giftedness" about them.
     

  20. I'll go with "Power and the glory".
