Released five years after his last effort an eternity for the prolific Irish blues guitar slinger who had been churning out at least an album a year throughout Road To Hell - Rory Gallagher - Defender (Vinyl '70sDefender is another quality blues-rock offering.
Although Gallagher is in fine tough form here and it was his debut release for his own indie label, there is little difference between this and some of his less stellar '70s albums like Top Priority and Photo-Finish. The pounding, guitar-heavy opener "Kickback City" sounds more like hairy rockers Bad Company than anything approaching the deep Chicago and country blues Gallagher dearly loved.
The quality picks up substantially as the volume subsides on "Loanshark Blues," but by-the-books crunch-rockers like "Failsafe Day" and the unfortunately titled "Road to Hell" don't bode well for Gallagher moving out from an increasingly formulaic pigeonhole. There are a few corkers here like "Continental Op," a blazing riff that stands with Gallagher's best work and revisits his familiar cloak-and-dagger theme.
The swampy, less abrasive "I Ain't No Saint" also pushes the quality up a few notches, as does his gritty version of Sonny Boy Williamson's "Don't Start Me to Talking," the bluesiest song on the disc and one of the few times he pulls out his greasy slide.
The reissue adds a pair of rugged bonus tracks along with a cleaner sound mixwhich are actually better, or certainly as good as the best cuts on the rest of this competent but hardly essential Rory Gallagher disc. Led Zeppelin. Rory Gallagher. Similar Products Formats: Music. Genres: Blues.

I agree about the guitar being more pronounced, but TP has way more bottom than the version. Nice bottom end and "Road To Hell" just sounds amazing! Again, the. Defender is definitely not his best effort but even a middle of the road recording by Rory Gallagher is worth listening to, often. Still very bluesy but the usual energy is missing but and this is a big but, the majesty of his guitar is still allover this record. Improves slightly with a buzz and headphones.
