From: Gar Date: August 3, 2003 at 18:23
This one never gets mentioned among their classic albums, but for me its one of their best. SAXON put their NWOBHM roots on the back burner and focused on making more accessible hard rock music. The whole album is filled with solid radio-friendly songs, its really a wonder why this didn't bring them the overseas attention they were aiming for.

From: visitor Date: August 22, 2003 at 9:51
I agree, Gar. Rocking again, Back on the Streets & Devil Rides Out are all true hard rock hits! Just because they made this album perhaps a little more easily accessible, doesnt change the fact that they rock really hard! This album is definately sadly underrated!

From: tomcat Date: August 27, 2003 at 17:44
question:didn't they release some sort of disco version of the song 'back on the streets again'? SAXON is a great heavy metal band

From: K.K. Date: November 18, 2003 at 10:30
BROKEN HEROES IS A GREAT MELODIC SONG, ONE OF THE BEST EVER. CATCHY CHORUSES, NICE SOLOS. THIS ALBUM ROCKS !!

From: Elton Braga Date: December 8, 2003 at 13:13
This is one great album, just the cover says it all!That girl drives me insane! About the music, its a great Hard/Heavy work!The best ones are Call Of The Wild, Devil Rides Out, Broken Heroes and Give It Everything You Got!

From: dlut6@yahoo.com Date: March 30, 2004 at 18:32
This CD is Very Hard To find so if anyone needs a copy let me know at dlut6@yahoo.com . Saxon is Awesome and many album CD's are Out of Print . I have seen them twice in concert and they Rock . Rock On SAXON

From: Rycheage Date: May 16, 2004 at 16:30
Emotive vocals from Biff along with melodic guitar lines and brazen dramatic hook should have made it a no 1 million seller. Major rock anthems such as 'Rockin' Again' and 'Back On The Streets' contain effortless melody while still retaining hard rock aggression. Saxon were still a metal band above all and 'Give It Everything You've Got' is as fast and riff heavy as previous years, if more streamlined with deft keyboard touches.

From: Alejandro Date: July 5, 2004 at 12:43
El comienzo de la decadencia.Desde la portada,Saxon apuntaba a algo mas comercial y de hecho el cambio de imagen tambin era un indicio de ello.Y dichos cambios son ms que notorios en la msica.Temas ms cortos,ausencia de riffs asesinos,estribillos pegadizos y una evidente intencin de acomodarse al hard que por aquellos das ganaba terreno,sobre todo en el mercado americano Rock 'N' Roll,Gypsy,Broken..,Gonna.. son muestras de ello. Mediocre 4.50/10. carro_martin2000@yahoo.com.ar

Cambio de estilo en Saxon, yo no s si a mejor o a peor, eso es cuestin de gustos. Lo nico que s, es que este disco contiene una de las canciones mas guapas que he escuchado: BROKEN HEROES. Where are they now?!!!

From: DR DOM Date: October 8, 2004 at 19:37
I have the LP & I own 4 cd's of this rare cd. This Cd is one of their best VERY VERY UNDER FREAKING RATED CD!!! SAXON!!

From: Propane Date: December 1, 2004 at 9:46
Carrumba!!!! This one instilled the no compromise attitude that was Saxon. These are great tracks. 10/10.

From: Albert Date: September 8, 2005 at 12:29
Para mi, un gran disco, hay gente que dice que aqu cambiaron su estilo pero la verdad es que es un disco con unas guitarras y unas melodas alucinantes...Os recomiendo que consigis el DVD Live Innocence de la gira de este disco...es alucinante y creo que est grabado en Madrid. En definitiva un gran disco. 9/10

From: poproxx2007 Date: January 10, 2006 at 18:08
Rocking Again and Broken Heros are two of Saxon's Best songs! Great CD!

From: Metal T Date: March 14, 2006 at 9:08
Ive come to accept and like this quite a bit over the years,despite this being softer than previous Saxon' efforts."Rockin' Again","Rock N Roll Gypsy",and the very metal "Devil Rides Out" make it listenable.Once in a great while Saxon will break out "Devil" and play it live....and a very cool solo Quinn pulls off on it.

Great & Killer Melodic Hard Rock/Metal album, ah gustos gustos pero si tienes gustos de nivel A1 como el Fenix entonces... que quieres que os diga es uno de los mejores albums que existen yo lo recomiendo de manera categorica y mas si eres amante del Hard/Metal Melodico esta Joya sera uno de los lideres de tu coleccion temas todo el album es completo pero por alli mencionaron "Broken Heroes" que tiene un estilazo y una letra... sobran las palabras, 2 bonus el 2000 por Axe Killer 10/10.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: April 8, 2007 at 16:10
Para Albert:si, el Live Innocence fue grabado en Madrid (Espaa).Mas aun,el video de la cancion "Back on the Streets"(Vaya temazo!)fue grabado en Espaa tambien.En fin creo que Saxon la habian pegado fuerte ese entonces en la Madre Patria para sacar video tanto en vivo como el de promo.Me parece que este esta a la par del "Destiny" en cuanto a melodia.Canciones? por supuesto el "Back on the Streets","Broken Heroes"&"Rockin' Again"solo para mencionar algunos son Himnos dignos del Rock!.7/10

Virtually absent from here is the Metal of the past and very much in play is the Melodic Rock that was hinted at on the last 'Crusader' album. I pretty much like all of this album, but it did really divide alot of Saxon'ites at the time. If you take it for what it is, you have an excellently played, produced and well written album, full of quality Melodic Hard rock tracks. If you, like some of the old guard, expect typical Saxon of old, then you will be pretty disappointed with pretty much the whole thing. Highlight of the new Saxon sound here must be 'Back On The Streets', which shows the band at pretty much the most commercial they have ever been (up to this point), and I must say it is a pretty damned good track. Also worthy of mention are 'Broken Heroes', 'Devil Rides Out' and 'Call Of The Wild', but again there are a few tracks that let the side down on here and have you reaching for the skip button. All in all a pretty good disc and alot better than the previous 'Crusader'.

Broken Heroes, what a great song! one of my favorites from SAXON, awesome chorus, killer riffs and mighty solos,this song made me to buy this album, other pearls are Back on the treets Again,Rock nRoll Gypsy,a real classic for me,more commercial,more melodic and more accesible than the previous albums,10/10.

From: hair metal again Date: April 6, 2011 at 1:30
fantastic release by SAXON ,for me this is probably their best ever!simon hanhart produced smoothly and the band found the perfect balance between heavy and hard tunes.all the songs are strong and catchy and could be hits on both sides of the atlantic.surely a must have

From: 123charpenay Date: November 26, 2014 at 7:59
