Thumbs up Destiny,Innocence & Rock The Nations are FAR better than I thought they'd be!

As I said in the reissues thread, I didn't think the most recent reissues of Destiny, Innocence Is No Excuse and Rock he Nations would be much good. They seem to have a slagging off in the music press and apart from a few songs, don't get much airing at Saxon gigs.

I approached them with a negative mind and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised as I really thought they would be crap.

I really like Ride Like The Wind (YES I DO!). Lightening Strikes and SOS.

Red Alert, Calm Before The Storm and For Whom The Bell Tolls are also quite good.

I do dislike I Can't Wait Anymore though. It's the type of song that they played in Baywatch when David and Co are running into the sea to save some surfer.

Innoncence Is No Excuse

VILE VILE album artwork that is a bit offputting. However some great songs. Rocking Again, Rock n Roll Gypsy and Broken Heroes.

Nothing wrong with Call Of The Wild or Devil Rides Out.

Not too keen on Gonna Shout or Everbody Up.

Rock The Nations

Great title track. Battle Cry is also a good song.

Waiting For The Night. Commercial- but still a strong song. I like Running Hot, Empty Promises, Northern Lady and Chase The Fade.

You Ain't No Angel.mmmmmm. Not great. Party Till You Puke is really dire. A bit of an insult to Elton John. He's a great talent and I'm sure they could have put his talents to better use.

All in all though, I think these threee albums are pretty good. They wouldn't be the first albums I'd save if my house was on fire, but they wouldn't be the last either.

How about other members?
I Love Rock n' Roll
