5.0 out of 5 stars a musical genius!,
this along with “solo in Soho” are must haves for Phil Lynott/Thin Lizzy fans. Both solo albums showcase Philips musical diversity. Bits of new romance, r&B, soul and good old rock n roll are showcased in both these LPs. To me these are classic gems! What are you waiting for, pick ’em up, you won’t be let down. God bless ya Phil!
5.0 out of 5 stars Through a mirror in twenty years….,
I can’t speak for everyone else, but I always thought Phil presented himself as a very easy target to critics He was unabashedly honest with his music, and always tried different styles, even if they didn’t quite fit. As such, he occasionally made mistakes, but it never seemed to phase him. God forbid the critics should forgive him for this!
After listening to this album again, over 20 years later, I can honestly say that even today, I appreciate Phils music, warts and all. (Piss on all the critics who championed the bombast of “everyman” Bruce Springsteen back in the day!)
A lyric from “Ode To Liberty” stuck out in my head while I listened to this. I believe that on January 4, 2006 it will be 20 years since Phil passed away. (Unfortunately, Phil uses “Jack” once again, for the hundredth time in a song lyric, and unfortunately references the drink and drugs that killed him. Miss you, Phil. A great album).

I would dearly love to return
Through a mirror in twenty years
And learn what the future has in store for us
And if i learned that we lost
And there was no hope
For those that fight
I would turn to drink
And drink is drugs
And drugs would help me sink
And like of boat, i float
I sail out to the sky
To the universe and back
Maybe to give it another try
I don’t know why, why jack
Just to confirm our father
Just to learn, just to heal us
5.0 out of 5 stars Pure genius!,
This album is great from start to finish, but there some standout tracks such as Old Town, Growing Up, Yellow Pearl, Little Bit Of Water, Together, and Ode To Liberty (The Protest Song). Those songs alone make this a worthy purchase.
