The last release with the classic pairing of Snowy White & Scott Gorham. Some great stuff on here inc. 'Angel Of Death' 'Hollywood' and the excellent title track.

From: Big Papa K Date: September 20, 2004 at 21:44
This one is a slight improvemenet over "Chinatown". Opening song "Angel Of Death" sounds like it has some new-wave influence but turns out to be one of the bands better long tracks as is the title tune. "Hollywood" would be the last classic 70's style rocker for the band before they switched to a more metal sound (and better) with the next album. 8/10

Since I don't want to die....I'll buy. I would have anyway. There is some timeless classic jewelry on this one.

From: Scott Date: December 15, 2004 at 8:57
After the somewhat disappointing China Town, I really felt that Renegade redeemed the band 100%! The overly clean production hampers how heavy this disc could have been. However no one can deny the pure brilliance of "Angel of Deat" or "The Pressure Will Blow". Many say this is the bands worst album. Perhaps "Renegade" is Thin Lizzy's best, but with a line of masterworks under their belt, their worst is still better than many others best. Thin Lizzy rules! 9/10

From: Muddley/Great D Date: December 15, 2004 at 14:53
Thin Lizzy are one of my favorite bands, and one band that never really released a bad album. They constantly changed style, and this album is no exception. If youre a Lizzy fan you will love it. I do.

From: Muddley/Great D Date: December 15, 2004 at 14:56
Dissapointing Chinatown.....what the fcuk are you talking about. Its awesome, awesome and awesome.

From: masmusic Date: March 30, 2005 at 14:40
Their best by far!!!

From: Rene Date: April 17, 2005 at 9:11
If you like THUNDER&LIGHTNING you will also like this album. Some songs could have been perfectly on their last studio album like ANGEL OF DEATH or HOLLYWOOD. Those two songs have a tipical NWOBHM sound that i love together with THIN LIZZY classic sound of course.

From: Remastered Reason Date: January 18, 2006 at 21:31
A much better release overall with Snowy White, which recovered some of the lost chemistry that Gary Moore obviously had with the band. Defintely a handful of standout tracks such as "Angel Of Death", "The Pressure Will Blow", & "Hollywood". Worth an occasional spin every now & then.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: April 10, 2016 at 14:59
Nice album with a more subtle sound...tracks "Renegade"(which strongly reminds me of Chris Rea or even Chris De Burgh in the feel)& "Hollywood (Down On Your Luck)" are my faves...cuts 1,4 & 9(AORish) are also fine ones...84/100

Thin Lizzy rules! Another great álbum!, We miss Phil, one of the real true Heroes! Renegade refleja la música de Thin Lizzy buscando adaptarse a la nueva década sin perder sus raíces, "Hollywood" y "Angel of Death" son tal vez sus mejores canciones, pero como en cualquier otro álbum de esta banda la coherencia y la buena hechura de las canciones está presente a todo lo largo y ancho del disco. Cuánta falta nos haces Phil!, tu música seguirá siendo recordada y venerada por generaciones.
