Hopefully you poser dorks are already schooled on Thin Lizzy. If not, I'll have to ask you politlely to leave. Because they rule.
Maybe this album has a couple clunkers on it ("That Woman's Gonna Break Your Heart", "Dancing in the Moonlight (It's Caught Me in Its Spotlight"), but in my opinion every mis-step is redeemed tenfold by an awesome rocker like "Soldier of Fortune" or "Opium Trail". Not to mention the title track, which is one of the best songs ever written. Annihilation Time does a pretty decent cover of it, in fact.
Did you notice that Robbo isn't pictured on the cover? That's because he only played on two measly tracks, and was in the process of getting booted (at which point he joined Motorhead, where he was promptly booted as well). Robbo is kind of a douche.
Above: Phil displays his awesome Magical Crystal Wrist Gauntlet, which he won from an evil wizard in a battle of wits high atop the Misty Mountains.
