Why This Album Is So Great:
Thin Lizzy first came to me in the mid-eighties where hard rock and heavy metal
had their revival. Back then it was the song "Got To Give It Up" that really
caught my attention. Later on I got to know Lizzy a lot better and this was especially due
to the "Renegade" album, being the first Lizzy album I bought. I now own most of
their albums, and even though they have given this world classics like "The Boys Are
Back In Town" and "Dancing In The Moonlight" and the corresponding albums,
my favourite remains "Renegade" and especially the magnificent "It's
Getting Dangerous". Some people just die too soon and the thought that Phil Lynott
could have been here today making more great music is a sad one. But - at least he left us
a bunch of great albums to remember him by. "Jailbreak" and "Black
Rose" are other personal favourites, but "Renegade" is my first choice.
Overall Rating (on a scale from 1 to 10): 9
