Saxon is the debut studio album by the English heavy metal band Saxon, released in 1979 (see 1979 in music).


Saxon crusader album


Eduardo Rivadavia of Allmusic gave the album three stars out of five, and, in his mixed review, described it as "the quiet before the storm", and also criticised the band's then-lack of experience in the studio as well as their record label, Carrere, for not knowing "how to capture a heavy metal sound on tape", meaning that the album "only hints at Saxon's true personality, power, and songwriting potential". He also said that the progressive rock sounding "Rainbow Theme"/"Frozen Rainbow" and glam rock sounding "Big Teaser" and "Still Fit to Boogie", "suggested some lingering doubts as to musical direction", but that, overall, "the LP helped to put Saxon on the map".
