Yes, Finally my alltime favorite band makes it to these pages. This album is a must for any hard rock fan. Jailbreak, Warrior, The Boys Are Back In Town and Cowboys song. All superb tracks, But so are all the tracks actually. Lynott's lyrics, his personality as a performer, makes him one of the alltime greatest within the genre, and the twin guitarwork by Robertson and Gorham still blows me away. Eventhough this was made in 1976.

From: Great Dane Date: February 16, 2003 at 18:22
...........Ups I forgot Emerald. Its heavy and another classic.

From: Great Dane Date: February 16, 2003 at 18:28
Hey Dan. What about a new category on heavyharmonies. Tribute albums. I have tribute albums to the following bands. Judas Priest, Shadows, Queen, Ufo, ZZ Top, Alice Cooper, Thin Lizzy, Aerosmith(2), Kiss, Black Sabbath, Mercyful Fate, Led Zeppelin.........All performed by some of the best musicians in Hard Rock/Heavy Metal.

From: Axelinger Date: February 16, 2003 at 19:03
There's a few tribute albums already listed under Various Artists...

From: Great Dane Date: February 16, 2003 at 19:07
Damn. That must have slipped my eyes. Ill check it al.

From: Gar Date: February 16, 2003 at 21:33
Lizzy's best known album. Their output from NIGHT LIFE(1974) up to BLACK ROSE(1979) was so consistantly good that its hard to pick a favorite. Their compilation DEDICATION is an excellent place to start if you're interested in the band.

From: Great Dane Date: February 17, 2003 at 3:51
Dont forget Live And Dangerous. Which is my alltime favorite live album.

From: Dusty Gibbons Date: February 25, 2003 at 21:36
My favorite thin lizzy record is probably Vagabonds although Thunder & Lightning is an excellent heavy metal album. On this album my favourite is running back, a great track which shows us phil was really a big softie at heart. The guitar solo on this one reminds me of richie sambora, which is not a bad thing if you like guitar! Also check out the excellent book about his life written by his mother. Undeniably the greatest band featured here...

From: Great Dane Date: February 25, 2003 at 22:55
Thanks Dusty. They are in my opinion too the greatest band featured here. Along with Kiss, Motley, Damn Yankees, and many more. No one above, no one beside , but loads below...........thats thin Lizzy.

From: Kryiis Karl Date: May 4, 2003 at 14:30
Thin Lizzy will forever rules in my heart. Some bands I enjoyed years ago seem crap to me today. This can't happen this Thin Lizzy. One of the best drummers in rock ever. All great musicians anyway.

From: Troy Date: June 27, 2003 at 10:40
True, one of the greatest bands in rock history and always great guitar work. This is probably their most well known as pointed out above. I can't think of any real dogs from this band as far as albums go. I enjoyed all of it. My faves are probably the live albums, but this cd became most well known for jailbreak and the boys are back in town. A recommended buy for any one. Dedication is a great introduction as stated above and it gives a great overview.

From: Decibel Dave Date: July 15, 2003 at 14:27
I've been hearing great things about Thin Lizzy - though I only liked (not loved) the few songs I have heard from them ("The Boys Are Back In Town", "Jailbreak") I have heard from them, I want to check out more. Is there a good greatest hits package for these guys?

Hey Dave, try "Dedication: The Very Best Of Thin Lizzy", that's the one I have and it's pretty good, got some early stuff right up to the end. I just saw it on for about $6. Enjoy!

From: METAL FAN 1 Date: August 25, 2003 at 0:12
Great postings from everyone above!!!! But all Lizzy fans would do wise to find Thin Lizzy's self-titled debut album (worth the hassle of trying to find it). A great listen,PERIOD! Anyway, Jailbreak is the shit for some awesome guitar riffing that you can lose your mind to!!!!!!! Enjoy!!!

From: JMF Date: November 29, 2003 at 8:07
THIN LIZZY is one of my favorite band and each record they did should be on this site, PHIL LYNOTT was the more charismatic and fantastic composer I ever heard. You should visit the following sites to have more info about this fabulous band :

From: Maja Date: February 7, 2004 at 14:09
Thin Lizzy are by far the most underrated band ever. Phil Lynott was a GREAT songwriter, lyrics, and music. It's too bad they had so many line up changes. Their great output despite this, is a testament to Lynott's prowess. As I was growing up, I was the only guy I knew that was into Lizzy here in the States. And I'm happy to see that they are starting to get the attention they deserve as a truly great band. I just wish Phil would have lived longer, so we could have more of his great music.

From: Big Papa K Date: June 30, 2004 at 2:23
I agree with the above poster about Thin Lizzy being the most underrated band ever. How many people can claim to be an incredible songwriter and lyricist as Phil Lynott while also having a great voice and excellent bass skills. This is their most well known album and the title track is incredible. 9/10

From: Propane Date: December 1, 2004 at 17:47
They took the world by storm with this one! Every last drop of sweat and every last inkling of creativity went into this disc. "Long live rock and roll" was invented through these geniouses.

From: Scott Date: December 15, 2004 at 8:37
Simply one of the greatest albums ever recorded! This album broke Thin Lizzy to the world. It's a shame it didn't take them to the epic fame they deserved. I still get chills when I hear the guitar lead break in "Warrior" or the heavy rhythm of "Emerald." A brilliant record from start to finish! Thin Lizzy rule!

From: ENdika Date: January 29, 2005 at 5:41
El 2 Mejor disco de Thin Lizzy,con las canciones mas clasicas y un sonido tipico de ellos.La convinacion Gorham-Robertson cuajaba a la perfeccion.Es la gloria Cowboy SOng!!! Im just want to be a Cowboy!!!!!!!!!!!! LIZZY SIEMPRE!!!!!! 9,5/

From: Chad Bell Date: March 28, 2005 at 6:45
I really can't find the words to describe this album or the band... but LEGENDARY is the best word to sum it up. Phil Lynott RIP.

From: Lennie Date: September 19, 2005 at 16:36
Another absolute must have! All songs here are fantastic. This is probably the definitive Lizzy album.

From: Remastered Reason Date: January 18, 2006 at 19:54
The Lizzy mobile was cruisin' on all cylinders. A classic for sure!!! Essential Listening.

From: aMetalhead1966 Date: March 6, 2006 at 12:33
This is simply one of the Best releases Thin lizzy has ever done!! An absolutely perfect statement of Hard Rock.Phil can weave a tale like No Other! The Band is so Smooth!!10/10!!!

From: edwithmj Date: March 15, 2010 at 20:14
Favourite songs here are The Boys Are Back In Town, Jailbreak, Romeo And The Lonely Girl and the softer Running Back. This is an album that you can't stop listening to.

From: hair metal again Date: October 10, 2012 at 1:49
very good hard rock releaseby THIN LIZZY and you can find some classic songs here like "jailbreak","the boys are back in town" and " cowboy song".the band s strong point is its personality and unique performance of songs .from the first tunes you can say it s the LIZZY and it sounds so fresh and rockin!good stuff

From: 780srocked Date: January 26, 2018 at 2:47
One more great, essential TL release! This one probably has the most hit songs, "Jailbreak" "The Boys Are Back in Town" and "The Cowboy Song." All were played heavily on FM radio when this was first released, and continue to be now. My two favorite tracks are "Warrior" and "Emerald." They are played often and with extreme volume! My rating is 88. KoR!
