The band just does no wrong
This longtime German mainstay shuffled the line-up and left standing is the man Mat Sinner and guitarist Christof Leim. By no means is that a change to the style and product for record number seventeen. "One Bullet Left" isn't a think tank of brains but man the band just does no wrong in thirty plus years (excluding that atrocious "Respect" in '93). This record continues the pursuit of Thin Lizzy, Mat playing straight into Lynott's melodic vocals and free for all melodies. Check out the tuneful "Back On Trail" and think of an entry on "Black Rose". Other cuts here are solid gleaming German fare, fave list checks in with "10 2 Death", "Atomic Playboys" and strong armed "Suicide Mission". The title track is historically one of the band's best. Mat continues a downward spiral on vox and he should this far in the match. Yet the fight goes on and Sinner is well ahead on this judge's card.
