Thin Lizzy: Thunder And Lightning

Sound — 10
Thin Lizzy. Breath taking. Here in Ireland, they're Gods. Phil Lynotts awe as a frontman, Scott Gorham, Brian Robertson (aka Robbo), Gary Moore, Eric Bell, Snony White and John Skyes with electrifying guitar riffs and solos and Brian Downey bashin away in the back. Scott Gorham and Brian Robertson played on this album. Toni Visconti, the dude who produced the album, really added to it by 'cleaning up the sound'. Hats off to everyone on that team.

Phil Lynott loved to ryhme words. And my God he did just that. Mostly telling stories, the lyrics are superb. He really makes you think during listening.

This is Thin Lizzy at there peak and best. They can rock like anything I've ever seen. Do what ever you can to get this album! If your just getting into Lizzy get this. Best album ever but people think The Who - Live At Leeds is just as good. It's nearly but Live And Dangerous always wins.

    Why is it under British metal and heavy metal, cos its neither? But a great album.
