Black Rose review

Thin Lizzy - Black Rose

Black Rose stands alone as a Lizzy album, being the only one that features Gary Moore on every track. Moore had just replaced Brian Robertson on lead guitar and his presence instils a more 'metallic' edge in their music than in previous recordings. "Do Anything You Want To" is the anthemic opening track with that memorable kettle-drum beat. "Waiting For An Alibi" is a classic rocker and "S&M" is a funk-laden satirical piece on you know what. After the mild ballad "Sarah", Lizzy crank it up again with the sadly autobiographical (for Lynott) anti-drug/drink song, "Got To Give It Up", the punkish "Get Out Of Here", the smooth "With Love" and finally, the multi-layered title track which was heavily influenced by Lynott's Irish roots. This was Lizzy's highest selling album, and the first one that I bought. Several years ago, I quit a job due to the boss being a complete arse. As I drove away, "Do anything you want to" aptly came on my car stereo. "Hey you... You're not their puppet on a string, you can do anything". Pure class!
