AllMusic Review by Eduardo Rivadavia
It's hard to pinpoint the reasons for Saxon's gradual fall from stardom, but by the time they released 1984's Crusader, the band had obviously stopped leading the New Wave of British Heavy Metal with its aggressive biker anthems, and fallen in line behind Iron Maiden's epic historical themes and more complex song structures. It did them no good. Crusader was actually a slight improvement from the songwriting perspective, but reveals a band which obviously takes itself too seriously. In fact, they only really manage to rock out like the old days on a few tracks like "A Little Bit of What You Fancy" and "Bad Boys (Like to Rock'n'Roll)."
