It was going to be tough to follow up and album as great as "Black Rose" and this one does dissapoint. The title track, "Killer On The Loose", and "We Will Be Strong" are the standout tracks, but they are not anywhere near the quality of the top songs on "Black Rose". 7/10

Chinatown? Give me a break. Awesome song, awesome album. These geniouses could write music!

I am just a HUGE Thin Lizzy fan. Check my Lizzy site for any doubt about that! http://www.nolifetilmetal.com/thinlizzy.htm However, I always felt that this CD was a weak spot in an otherwise brilliant catalog. That is not to say this CD sucks! Far from it. Even a weak Lizzy album is better than most other bands best album IMO. Some highlights are the funky "Sugar Blues" with those awesome Downey drum fills & the heavy metal rockers "Killer on the Loose," "Genocide" & "China Town." Cool cover!

KILLER ON THE LOOSE is my favorite song on this album. It have a tipical NWOBHM sound that i love so much. GREAT ALBUM.

It's apparent the loss of Gary Moore was dramatic. While a fine guitar player, Snowy White lacked the chemistry with Lynott & company. Hardly as impressive as "Jailbreak" or "Black Rose" but decent & worth an occasional nostalgic spin.

My all-time favourite band. Phil Lynott was an icon and is still missed today. I like all the Lizzy guitarist's and think this album showcases a darker side to Lizzy; Lynott's voice is very emotive and sincere on this album especially on Didn't I. The musicianship as usual is excellent, Brian Downey is the most under-rated drummer ever and along with Lynott's crisp voice and pounding bass lines drive this album nicely. I think the chemistry is excellent and the production is crystal clear. Turn
