Thin Lizzy - Black Rose: A Rock Legend (1979)

I'm not gonna lie bros...Thin Lizzy are probably the coolest and most underrated rock band on the planet next to Wishbone Ash, and this late 70's classic is a grand springboard into their rather sweet discography.

The magic is a combination between the soulful yet powerful delivery of Phil Lynott and the legendary guitar work of bluesman Gary Moore, but even the greatest musicians can fall flat on their faces unless the songs kick ass. Black Rose, thankfully, delivers on all counts - from the funky bassline and harmony guitar of 'Waiting For An Alibi' to the plodding snarl of the suite-esque 'Roisin Dubh', everything snaps together with collective finesse as though it were meant to be. What more could ya want?

Go hard tonight with Thin Lizzy or be square, bitches. They sound even better on meth!
