Greatest Hits album for sale Product Description



Greatest Hits album for sale by Thin Lizzy was released Oct 26, 2009 on the Universal Music label. As with most renowned classic rock acts, Thin Lizzy's hits have been repackaged and recycled numerous times over the years. But there hasn't been a collection as thorough as the 2004 double-disc set Greatest Hits. While the group had only one true U.S. hit (the perennial sporting event/barroom/rock radio anthem "The Boys Are Back in Town"), to pass Lizzy off as a one-hit wonder would be a major mistake. Greatest Hits CD music is a 3-disc set.   ...See Full Description

A good career spanning overview
Greatest Hits songs I've always viewed Thin Lizzy as one of those special change of pace bands; much like Santana or Gentle Giant... not that any of those bands sound alike at all, but that is the whole idea of changing pace (for a listener who's genre is basically from the classic hard rock/heavy metal era). They break the mold a bit and have something a bit different to offer, for better or worse. This album would get 5 stars if I loved every song from every part of Lizzy's history, but as is such the nature of all-encompassing career anthologies; it's a compromise of showing something from every part of a band's history versus showing just one's favorite period of a band's existence (Uriah Heep's Classic Anthology actually manages a packed double cd from their best 6 years... an amazing feat that gets 5 stars). Neverthesless, Phil Lynott was an amazing talent who shouldn't be overlookeed or forgotten, even if he has some songs that are a little too campy and romatically cheesy for some hard rockers. If you give them a chance they can actually grow on you. It's nice when there are other feelings and styles that you normally wouldn't listen that can be incorporated into a style of music that you do like. Thin Lizzy greatly succeeds in this manner (folk, jazz, and blues influneces and some kickass rock and roll). Throw in some damn good musicianship (gotta love the harmony leads and gaelic melodies) and great songwriting from the black Irishman (who was a real soulful poet and story teller) and you realize that every rocker should have a unique place in their music library for some Thin Lizzy. I highly reccommend this album for both the true Lizzy fan and curious would be first time Lizzy tasters alike.

The Rocker
This is indeed a good one for the uniniated. I love it. Phil Lynott, god what a talent. Gary Moore. I was only really familiar with Thin Lizzy through their Black Rose A Rock Legend album, if I have the title right, and the big radio songs, of course. This has live tracks so you can hear what Lizzy was like in concert, and the haunting "Out In The Fields" by Gary and Phil. GOOD stuff.
