I listened to 'Bound for Glory' and couldn't stop grinning. Hearing Scott's guitar playing again was like meeting a long lost friend all over again. Spirit of Lynott, soul of Warwick. This is class!

Black Star Riders has all the Lizzy/Irish trademarks to satisfy the longtime fans and has the added advantage of a fresh approach, making for a great combination. The album is really strong from start to finish!
- Joe Elliot, Def Leppard
Not suprising but happily the two guns, two guitar interplay of Thin Lizzy is alive, well and living in the DNA of Black Star Riders. Coupled with imagery filled with piss and vinager, the album is the welcomed return of an old friend that you didn't realize how much you have missed .
- Paul Tanley, KISS
