Neatly encapsulating the cream of Thin Lizzy's considerable output, DEDICATION is an excellent primer for one of the most underrated hard rock outfits to emerge from the British Isles. Led by Phil Lynott, Thin Lizzy gained a reputation as a way station for high-flying guitarists (Gary Moore, John Sykes, Snowy White), thanks to a sound that relies heavily on a twin-guitar attack. Lynott sings with a soulful rasp in lyrics that often romanticize an outlaw's way of life.
Starting with the band's guitar-driven rock reworking of the folk song "Whiskey in the Jar" (later remade by Metallica), Thin Lizzy went on to record such hard-hitting numbers as "Cowboy Song" and "The Rocker." The group's songs usually have some kind of built-in swagger, whether it is the sizzling escapism of "Jailbreak" or the bar room camaraderie that runs through "The Boys Are Back in Town." Throughout all this bravado and bluster, Thin Lizzy always plays with an innate melodicism--be it during the yearning "She Knows" or the defiant "Fighting My Way Back." DEDICATION is a monument to a sadly overlooked juggernaut.
