Phenomenal. Very underrated band.
How these guys didn't get big is a mystery. Almost every song is just great; Dan McCafferty has a great voice and a great way with words (Bad Bad Boy is an exceptional example). Great album, I highly recommend Bad Boy, Alcatraz, the title track, Broken Down Angel, Too Bad Too Sad and Vigilante Man.
Good stuff here!
This album is as enjoyable as Hair of the Dog. Unfortunately the iTunes versions are missing the bonus tracks available with the import CDs. Never the less there's some great music in here with the rollicking title track, the bizarre Alcatraz and my personal favorite Vigilante Man (which Joe Perry did a near identical cover of on his solo album a few years ago.) Other good ones are Night Woman and Too Bad Too Sad with the highlight being Broken Down Angel. The only weak song, in my opinion, is Sold My Soul which is plodding and a little silly. Nazareth deserves far more credit that they usually get! Hair and Love Hurts are radio staples but upon investigation you'll find plenty of great songs and sounds from this Scottish band.
Before Hair of the Dog
Most think that Nazereth started with Hair of the Dog, this is several years before and is by far a better record. From the beginning track to the end this record rocks. The later stuff is OK but this, Rampant and Loud & Proud, both of which are not available on iTunes are better records than anything the group did later. Buy it, you will like it if you like good hard rock music. This is one of thier best albums and most people have never even heard of it.
