The 2019 Heavy Harmonies Donation Drive!

It's that time of the year again: The annual Heavy Harmonies donation drive to cover the site expenses for the year. It will run through April 30, details over on the Heavy Harmonies Forum.

Every donation helps, no matter how small. If you can't afford $20 for the year, give $10. If you can't afford $10, give $5. It's just once a year and keeps the lights on.

And if you happen to be fortunate enough to make 6 figures or more a year, feel free to give gobs of cash!... I'm not too proud to have a sugar daddy or seven :)

Thank you for supporting Heavy Harmonies!

A good, solid album that betters the debut I think. It improves with each listen and has some good tracks 'Blindsided' and 'You Little Liar' are my initial picks, but no real bad ones. Still very Lizzyesque in sound, which is a good thing, so old school classic rock fans should like this one

From: Doug Date: April 14, 2015 at 19:48
Completely agree with the Lizzyesque comment above. Warwick really has the inner Lynott vibe in him and BSR retains that patent Lizzy sound. All in all good things, IMO. This album takes a few listens to get into though.

The 2nd release from the Thin Lizzy-reincarnated band (under a new moniker). This is a great release, a little more diverse in song writing and music, however it is not a diversion from making a worth while listen. This 2nd release basically picks up right after their debut...more focused songs and lyrics. Thin Lizzy has always been Phil Lynott, but Black Star Riders is the Thin Lizzy of the 21st century...and stays true to the Lizzy sound and energy without stepping on the history of Lynotts legacy. HIGHLIGHT TRACKS: #1, 3, 5, 7, 8, 11, 12 MY RATING: 91/100
