Album Review

Going by this album, Phil Lynott would have had a lot in common with Bob Geldof, with both of them writing songs that strove for memorable hooks and related to growing up in the rough end of Ireland. The Philip Lynott Album has some surprisingly sweet moments, considering Lynott's hard-rocking past with Thin Lizzy. It generated a bona fide European pop hit in a remodeled version of "Yellow Pearl" (co-written by Midge Ure of Ultravox), a sarcastic attack on Asian marketing methods.

Customer Reviews

Often overlooked, but worth a listen

After Phil Lynott left Thin Lizzy, he wanted to branch out to different styles of music that had his stamp on them. After 1980's "Solo In Soho" album, which included guest appearances from Mark Knopfler of Dire Straights, and Midge Ure of Ultravox, Phil returned to the studio for 1982's "The Phil Lynott Album". If you're a Lizzy fan, and not sure what to expect, I would only say that it is definitely not "Jailbreak" or "Fighting" This album has more synth roots and the songwriting is a bit more mature. Standout cuts include "The Man's a Fool", "Together", "Little Bit of Water" "Ode To Liberty" (Featuring Mark Knopfler) and the superb "Old Town" co-written by Lynott and Jimmy Bain with help from Midge Ure. Probably the best song on the album, which was later covered by the Coors on their "Unplugged".

Philip Lynott Album

One of the greatest albums ever! While overlooked by many this album shows Phil at his most creative point during his career. All the songs are strong and unique - definitely recommend this album for anybody that is a Thin Lizzy fan.

Solo In Soho

this cd isn't bad but he was still better with the rest of the group. And they didn't add all the songs like "King's Call" and "Dear Miss Lonely Hearts" which are two great songs. He was actually with Brain Downey when he did King's Call and when he did Dear Miss Lonely Hearts he was with Brain Downey, Scott Gorham, and Snowy White. Which makes the songs sound good like the old days.
