How can no one review this classic? Robertson and Gorham make their debut with Thin Lizzy and the band moves away from it's lighter earlier work into more of a hard rock band. Good album, but they had their best work ahead of them. 8/10

From: Axelinger Date: July 1, 2004 at 19:31
Actually, they made their debut as a tandem on Night Life in 1974, but who's counting? Fighting is a sadly underrated album...

From: Phantom_Lord_x Date: November 20, 2004 at 5:12
Beauty !!Perfect songs, perfect music !! "Come back wild one will you" - magnificent ballad !!

From: Propane Date: December 1, 2004 at 17:43
FTW! Thin Lizzy came out of the gate pounding with this marvelous monster. Still a classic to this very instant.

From: Endika Date: January 29, 2005 at 5:34
Que hace esta puntuacion( 5,9) en este clasicazo de Thin Lizzy¿¿¿ Esta claro que no es el mejor disco de Thin Lizzy pero aqui empezaba a formarse la leyenda de el que muchos consideramos uno de los mejores grupos de Hard Rock de la historia.Gracias Mr Phil por hacernos pasar tantos maravillosos momentos con tu musica.8/

The band's first hard hitting classic album. Lynott unleashed the mules on this disc. A great vibe characteristic of most of Lynott's albums. Recommended Listening.

the first guy (big papa k) that made a comment on this album asked: how come no one comments on this classic? it´s easy brother do you think that 90% of guys around here have ears to hear this quality? no! they are used to super produced studio stuf of the 90´s and 21st century stuff!! this is to big brother ( a diamond of 18 kilats) and almost everything they did! we are talking about a legend in music not only in rock!!!

Probably my favorite Thin Lizzy album. Every song rocks.

From: Doug Date: March 18, 2011 at 12:48
IMO, this was Lizzy's best lineup--awesome.

From: 780srocked Date: January 26, 2018 at 2:37
This is one of my favorite Thin Lizzy releases! Great mix of ballads, a cover, "Rosalie" and some hard rocking songs, "Suicide" and "Ballad of a Hard Man!" Essential TL, IMO! Track 2 is "For Those Who Love To Live." My rating is 95. KoR!
