Concept album this time for Thin Lizzy. They don't pull it off as good as others have, but songs such as "Don't Believe A Word" are still incredible. 9/10

From: GlennVanWiddle Date: August 17, 2004 at 17:42
Wonderful album! Songs just don't come any better and more heartfelt then 'Borderline'. The one vinyl I have almost worn out through constant play. Wonderful

From: Propane Date: December 1, 2004 at 17:49
Never you mind any criticism young man. Great creativity on this one.

From: Scott Date: December 15, 2004 at 8:41
The third album in a long line of brilliant records from Lynott and Co. This one is a concept record. The story is about an unlikely hero, Johnny, who saves a young damsel in distress. "Massacre" is an intense dual guitar attack. Don't Believe A Word is a hard rocker that sounds even better on Live & Dangerous. Boogie Woogie Dance is a heavy song with a groove. Phil Collins is listed in the thank you list as having played some percussion, although what and were is unknown.

From: Remastered Reason Date: January 18, 2006 at 20:01
a FEW excellent tunes here but hardly a follow-up to "Jailbreak". Still worth a spin.

From: Alniter Date: October 9, 2009 at 0:00
Still one of my favorite albums. Great riffs, Lynott in fine form from sneering to crooning, and really holds as an album as opposed to a collection of songs. "Johnny The Fox Meets Jimmy The Weed" can make my neck bounce from a mile away, and "Boogie Woogie Dance" is a force of nature. Still have the vinyl on this one too!
