Lynott recorded twelve studio albums and wrote most of the songs. The single track “Whiskey in the Jal” is a traditional song “waiting for an alibi” and “the boys are back in town” became super international hits. Tracks of the album commence with thundering rhythms by drummer Brian Downey and Lynott. The drum roll introduced unique composition “S&M” driven by flange drenched starkly brutal lyrics and rapid funk music.
