  • What albums do you think of being good then? I don't completely agree with you. I just think that Saxon made some poor career choices in the 80's, like most bands did, except that I think Saxon couldn't quite afford those mistakes unlike bands like Priest and Ozzy, for instance. I mean, Saxon did some bad stuff like Destiny and most of Rock The Nations, but they redeemed themselves in the early 90's, I think at least. At that time pretty much everyone either split-up (Priest), changed their sound to that of the times (Ozzy), or/and became utter crap (Maiden). At least I think Saxon got back to what they do best, and held on to that to this day after their late 80's experimantation.
  • extremely overrated: only 3 good albums, nothing more
