Reviews :

"It is widely agreed among Thin Lizzy fans (and by the band themselves) that their 1981 release, Renegade, was their worst. The raw, rocking Lizzy of the past (Jailbreak, Black Rose, etc.) is nowhere to be found here; in its place is a keyboard-heavy rock band with blatant pop leanings and a production too similar to British heavy metal bands of the early '80s. New guitarist Snowy White never truly fit into the band (both musically and visually), and it was never more apparent than on Renegade. As with its predecessor, Chinatown, heavy drug use plagued the sessions, again resulting in an uninspired, unfocused affair (especially evident in Phil Lynott's flat vocals). The six-minute opener, "Angel of Death," doesn't measure up to past Lizzy epics, while the title track fails at trying to pull on the heartstrings with a tale about a misunderstood youth. The powerful Lizzy of old resurfaces briefly on such rockers as "The Pressure Will Blow," "Leave This Town," and "Hollywood (Down on Your Luck)," but the clean production almost neuters these potential heavy classics. A jazzy experiment, "Fats," proves to be an interesting one, but run-of-the-mill originals like "Mexican Blood" and "It's Getting Dangerous" far outnumber the highlights, making Renegade Lizzy's second disappointing release in a row." AllMusic Review by Greg Prato

Released in 1981 as a successful follow-up to their much loved Black Rose - A Rock Legend (FRM3338) & Chinatown (FRM3496) albums, Phil Lynott, Scott Gorham, Brian Downey and new guitar sensation Snowy White forged ahead once again with their trademark hard rock sound and continued their assault on audiences worldwide with their 11th masterwork Renegade.

As the powerful opener Angel Of Death kicks the album into full gear, featuring the dual lead guitars of Scott Gorham and Snowy White, known for creating some of the finest and most familiar guitar riffs in music history, they continue their legendary style with this metal anthem. Phil Lynott’s vocal and bass attack notched up another career defining song as well, which served the band well for years and has truly been one of their most revered tunes.

Eight more incredible performances from these rock and roll warriors continue to thrill the listener including more Phil Lynott hard rock classics like Leave This Town , the balistic It's Getting Dangerous and the stellar title smash Renegade.

More rockers flow like the hit single Hollywood (Down On Your Luck) and the brilliant Thin Lizzy smash Mexican Blood truly making this album a fan favorite for years to come.

This hard rocking session showcases the legendary Thin Lizzy at their usual very best, always delivering the goods and assuring to their worldwide fans that Renegade will reign as one of their finest achievements in their enduring album catalog.

Mastered impeccably from the original authorized Warner Music tapes by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music Studios and Capitol Records in Hollywood, Friday Music in very honored and enthusiastic to welcome back the much heralded Thin Lizzy classic Renegade for the first time on 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl.

To make this more of a treasure for your limited edition Thin Lizzy collection, this long out of print vinyl treasure features the legendary original album art not seen in years in the Lp format.
