Neither, it's hypothetical. It was just to give a backstory to the idea.

Crusader is next, so Crusader. Smile

Can we pick b-sides? I like Krakatoa off of the "Innocence" sessions. Good song. Otherwise a bland album.

I just recently added this to my Saxon vinyl collection on tri colored swirl. I don't think this one deserves all the crap  it gets. I would add the title track to the mix.

Saxon's later and somewhat heavier songs are as good as their old classics.

Destiny is their weakest album. But there's some nice melodies to be found.

I pick what is a perfect AOR rocker "S.O.S."

I always liked Requiem from Solid Ball. One of their catchiest songs for sure.
