I'm so stoked to hear about the new Saxon album, will check it out
Thanks for the updates, labrekk
Me too. I was expecting the release on Amazon but when the date hit it becomes "out of stock" , in CDUniverse it's on backorder, and as you pointed I'm not going to pay $24 at Nehrecords for the limited edition.
I love Saxon and it hurts not to have the new one, but the logical price to pay for a USA release will be ~$14, and for an imported (European) ~$18, no more for me.
Hey Soundmaster - no fear, Destiny is the high point of the low period. There are a couple tracks on there that rival anything they've done - namely Jericho Siren and Red Alert. There are other good ones to though. in truth, I think their only real stinker of an album is Innocence is no Excuse. There are other questionable ones, but nothing that bad.
Indeed, and also 'S.O.S' and their cover of 'Ride Like The Wind'.
Disagree on a 666% , IINE have awsome songs like 'Broken Heroes', 'Back On The Streets', Rock'N'Roll Gypsy, 'Devil Rides Out', 'Call Of The Wild' and the fantastic opener Rockin' Again.
One of my firsts and favorite Saxon albums.
I'll revisit it based on your passion for it, Wyvern. I don't like thinking the mighty Saxon has any bad albums...and it's been a LONG time since I heard it afterall.
I don't believe they have bad albums, weak yes, bad no.
"Destiny", "Forever Free", "Metalhead" are examples of weak albums to me.
I was yesterday with Vicious Robbie watching the DVD "The Saxon Chronicles", the videos are terrible, but the songs are great. Curiously they used the video for "Rock'N'Roll Gypsy" for "Back In The Streets Again" for that compilation, kinda of cheap manouver IMO
What's weak in "Metalhead"? This is one of their very best albums IMO.
No doubt! How did I forget heep and their recent masterpieces!?!?
Wake the sleeper is their BEST album, IMO.
And I respect your viewpoint. To me is boring, soft, no hook, ergo weak (except for 'All Guns Blazing' which is a great song).
Is the reverse situation with IINE and ElectricWiz, he thinks it's crap and to me is a fantastic album. Just different taste.
Good, enjoyable album, but definetely not the album of the year. There are some fillers, but I can't say that I am not satisfied.
From their official website:
I couldn't wait so my copy arrived today ...and to me is the album of the year.
I never miss a SAXON disc....they always churn out some quality.
I also rank them up there with bands like Maiden and Priest, and Strong Arm Of The Law has to be my top title, and I think it's a metal masterpiece.
awesome. should be good
