True. SAXON, after "Crusader" (which is far from being a masterpiece) released several albums with a "lighter" sound ( "Innocence is no Excuse" and some others I've forgot the name) in order to conquer the US market, which was not a success, and lot of people in Europe lost interest in SAXON because of this.DaN wrote:I blame "Crusaders", or generally the fact that their music started deteriorating while other behemoths like Priest and Maiden were still in their prime. They also had a wee bit more of "classic rock" in them than other bands breaking at the time, especially compared to the US Metal-wave. By the mid-80's, MANOWAR or METALLICA probably sounded more exciting that SAXON to the kids.
