||EMI MADE A BIG MISTAKE|
interesting for the bonus,as the other 2 rerelease,but the tracks from the original albums sounds very bad,worst than older cd edition!Too much high frequencies added,and in some parts the songs sounds like an old scratched vinyl,with a really crackled sound!bad work EMI,to save only for the bonus!

||Great Debut From NWOBHM Rockers - Saxon!|
With progressive overtones, Saxon's debut released in 1979 is more of an E.P. with just a mere eight songs. Most of the songs are kick butt rockers such as "Stallions Of The Highway", "Backs To The Wall", "Big Teaser" and "Judgement Day".
