As I already mentioned in the Rock The Nations review, Solid Ball Of Rock is one of the three Saxon albums I listened to most often, and all of the three have the same rating of three and a half stars.

In case of Solid Ball Of Rock the reason for this only slightly above average rating is the surprising gap in quality between some songs, though most of them are exactly those solid Heavy Metal songs we can expect from Saxon. But others, like especially Altar Of The Gods, completely fail to impress. I also will never find the connection of Bavarian Rhapsody (I recall it being named Bavarian Beaver on the sleeve of the CD I recorded it from) with the country in which I grew up. On the positive side I can only name three songs: The title track is a wee bit more than solid, and Overture In B Minor / Refugee has been a constant member of my favourites playlist in the last 25 years. But the best song on the album and my number one Saxon song is Requiem (We Will Remember), a fine tribute to all musicians and fans of Rock and Metal who are not with us anymore.
