    Throughout Thin Lizzy's fitful and never-ending series of lineup changes (mainly in guitar players), the band did manage to stay true to leader Phil Lynott's desire that it remain a great guitar band. FIGHTING marks the beginning of the band's most commercially successful lineup (with Scott Gorham and Brian Robertson on guitar). Not coincidentally, the band's most consistent albums surfaced during this period as well. Lynott's grand artistic ambitions, which often resulted in half-baked concept ideas, began to rein themselves in to a more streamlined approach that better suited his basic hard rock attitude.
    FIGHTING put forth the formula that earmarks nearly all of the band's best work: hard pumping rock & roll offset with tightly melodic dual guitar lines and Lynott's soulful vocals. Opening with Bob Seger's "Rosalie," a classic '70s power chord rocker, the band struts with confidence and more than a little swagger. The pounding "Fighting My Way Back" is propelled by a pulsing rhythm section, huge guitars, and sheer bravado on Lynott's part. And just when things seem to be on the verge of slipping into macho posturing, a yearning tear in Lynott's voice reveals the vulnerability that lies beneath all barre chords.
