Stephen Thomas Erlewine of Allmusic described Fighting as a “tense, coiled, vicious rock & roll album”, with which Thin Lizzy began their classic era. Highlighting Gorham and Robertson’s twin-guitar interplay, he described this line-up of the band as “vital and visceral”, and added that Lynott had made a leap forward as a songwriter, “fully flourishing as a rock & roll poet”.

Fighting is the fifth studio album by Irish rock band Thin Lizzy, released in 1975. After spending four albums trying to find their niche, the band finally forged an identifiable sound featuring the twin guitars of Scott Gorham and Brian Robertson. This sound draws from hard rock, folk, pop and rhythm and blues. It set the stage for the big commercial breakthrough of the follow-up album, Jailbreak. The album was also their first album to chart in the UK, hitting #60.
The track “Suicide” was originally performed by Thin Lizzy when guitarist Eric Bell was still in the band, including on a BBC broadcast recorded in July 1973. It was first performed with different lyrics under the title “Babys Been Messing”. Another track recorded at the Fighting sessions was “Try a Little Harder”, which was eventually released on the Vagabonds, Kings, Warriors, Angels boxed set in 2002.
Fighting is the only other Thin Lizzy album aside from their 1971 debut where band members other than Phil Lynott receive sole songwriting credits for certain tracks. Bell wrote “Ray Gun” on the debut, and Robertson and Gorham wrote “Silver Dollar” and “Ballad of a Hard Man”, respectively.
Europe guitarist John Norum covered “Wild One” on his 1987 album Total Control. Europe covered “Suicide” on their 2008 live album Almost Unplugged.
