Hard Rock - Publicado el 23 de octubre de 2020 | UMC (Universal Music Catalogue)

Since the death of the band's visionary leader Phil Lynott in the early '80s, the stature of Thin Lizzy has only grown larger over time. Their one-in-a-million mix of melodic hard rock and swaggering street corner mythology has been imitated by many and beloved by even more. Over the years, their albums have been reissued, radio sessions unearthed, and live sets dusted off for release. Rock Legends is something different, an almost mythical deep dive into the long-rumored-to-exist treasure trove of tape reels housing hours and hours of previously unheard music. Lizzy guitarist Scott Gorham and band historian Nick Sharp curated three discs' worth of full-band demos, alternate takes, and unreleased songs that serve to present an alternative history of the band. A fair number of the demos were cut in studios, quite a few were taped by the band in their practice space, and the sound quality is equal to the well-known finished versions. Most of the songs are quite similar to the released versions, too; the fun is listening for the bits -- like a different guitar solo or a lyrical variation -- that give a glimpse into the band's songwriting process. To that end, two of their most famous songs are here in early form. "Jailbreak" features embryonic lyrics and a couple of jazzy chords that were excised; "The Boys Are Back in Town" sports an extended coda that pushes the song to almost six minutes. Of the unreleased songs, the tight-as-a-drum rocker "Black Mail" is the best, though the almost-punk "Hate" comes close. Another selling point of the set is the disc of rarities from their early years. It's fun to hear their first single, the Band-influenced "The Farmer" and its rollicking B-side "I Need You," and side trips into some heavy blues, like a ripping run through "Goin' Down." The extended take on their breakthrough song "Whiskey in the Jar" is a good reminder of guitarist Eric Bell's inventive skills as a soloist, the rough mix of "Black Boys on the Corner" gives even more of an edge to one of their all-time toughest tracks, and the radio sessions where they romp through loose rockers like "Buffalo Gal" and "Things Ain't Working Out Down on the Farm" are a blast. The rest of the set features a disc of single mixes of their greatest hits, a raucous live show from 1980, a DVD comprising the Bad Reputation documentary, a 1976 TV appearance, replicas of their tour programs, and a book of song lyrics presented as a poetry anthology. It all adds up to a set that fulfills the wildest dreams of any Lizzy fanatic who might have begun to give up on ever hearing the lost demos. They are worth the wait and the music that surrounds them is equally worth attention, too. Hopefully, the archive of tapes will yield more treasure down the road, but until then this is a vital addition to the legend of one of the greatest rock bands to ever strap on guitars. © Tim Sendra /TiVo

Thin Lizzy found their trademark twin-guitar sound on 1975's Fighting, but it was on its 1976 successor, Jailbreak, where the band truly took flight. Unlike the leap between Night Life and Fighting, there is not a great distance between Jailbreak and its predecessor. If anything, the album was more of a culmination of everything that came before, as Phil Lynott hit a peak as a songwriter just as guitarists Scott Gorham and Brian Robertson pioneered an intertwined, dual-lead guitar interplay that was one of the most distinctive sounds of '70s rock, and one of the most influential. Lynott no longer let Gorham and Robertson contribute individual songs -- they co-wrote, but had no individual credits -- which helps tighten up the album, giving it a cohesive personality, namely Lynott's rough rebel with a heart of a poet. Lynott loves turning the commonplace into legend -- or bringing myth into the modern world, as he does on "Cowboy Song" or, to a lesser extent, "Romeo and the Lonely Girl" -- and this myth-making is married to an exceptional eye for details; when the boys are back in town, they don't just come back to a local bar, they're down at Dino's, picking up girls and driving the old men crazy. This gives his lovingly florid songs, crammed with specifics and overflowing with life, a universality that's hammered home by the vicious, primal, and precise attack of the band. Thin Lizzy is tough as rhino skin and as brutal as bandits, but it's leavened by Lynott's light touch as a singer, which is almost seductive in its croon. This gives Jailbreak a dimension of richness that sustains, but there's such kinetic energy to the band that it still sounds immediate no matter how many times it's played. Either one would make it a classic, but both qualities in one record makes it a truly exceptional album. © Stephen Thomas Erlewine /TiVo

It's hard not to interpret the "fighting my way back" chorus of the title track on Thin Lizzy's fifth album as the band's way of bouncing back from the uncommonly subdued Night Life. If that record was smooth and relaxed, Fighting is a tense, coiled, vicious rock & roll album, as hard as Vagabonds's toughest moments but more accomplished, the sound of a band truly coming into its own. There are two key forces at work. First, there's the integration of guitarists Scott Gorham and Brian Robertson, who get to unleash furious playing on every track here. It's hard not to thrill at their harmonizing twin-lead interplay, which is enough to excuse the rather pedestrian nature of their original tunes here (Robertson penned the boogie "Silver Dollar," Gorham the closer "Ballad of a Hard Man"). That's especially true because of the other development here: the full flourishing of Phil Lynott as a rock & roll poet. Whether he's writing hard-charging rockers like "Wild One," jazzy Springsteen-isms of "For Those Who Love to Live" or combining both on "Freedom Song," his songs manage to be both mythic and commonplace, and when delivered by the vital, visceral lineup he has here, they're invigorating. Strangely enough, that leap forward as a writer is somewhat overshadowed by a triumph of the band, in how they completely steal Bob Seger's "Rosalie" turning it into their own anthem, but that again is a testament to the strength of this incarnation of Thin Lizzy, who truly begin their classic era with this dynamic LP. © Stephen Thomas Erlewine /TiVo
