5.0 out of 5 stars Uniformly good tracks throughout the CD February 7, 2000
Format:Audio CD
One of the worst things that can happen when you buy a CD after hearing one song is that you end up hating the rest of the songs. To a large degree, this problem is alleviated when many of the selections can be previewed on-line or in the store, but back in 1984, this capability did not exist.
"The Warrior" is one of the few CDs that is consistently good across all of the tracks. The title cut is still probably the best song, but there are many other challengers and other listeners may think another song is the best. Regardless, this is a CD that I listen to all the way through without skipping any songs.
Lead singer Patty Smyth has a raw but earnest voice, making her sort of a harder-edged precursor to Melissa Etheridge.
Aside from "Goodbye to You," this collection has pretty much all of the best Scandal songs. ("Goodbye to You" can be found on the earlier EP, the recent collection "Scandalous," and on the "Lifetime Intimate Portrait: Women in Rock" collection, which I also recommend.)

4.0 out of 5 stars Shooting at the walls of heartache, bang bang! October 12, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Scandal's impact on 80's hard guitar rock has registered as a brief blip. True enough, but Warrior, the full-length release they spawned, deserves its tribute nearly twenty years after its debut. I mean, it's got that archetypal 80's rock sound, and that's what I grew up on.
The big hit from this album is of course, "The Warrior", co-written by none other than Holly Knight. A searing hard-rock, early Bryan Adams-style guitar opens this single, whose memorable chorus goes "Shooting at the walls of heartache/Bang bang, I am the warrior". Smyth is really the Amazon here in this song equating capturing someone's love to hunting. Bit unromantic, really, but then again, Smyth does have a bit of sensuous rough in her, doesn't she?
The other single, "Beat Of A Heart" is more laid back rock set by the bass and drums. Producer Mike Chapman and Holly Knight did the words and music for "Hands Tied" whose rhythm section has that steady pulsing beat reminiscent of "Every Breath You take" or "Missing You". Another "seeing an ex with another girl" type song, Smyth's (or rather the narrato's toughness reveals deep down more tender vibes: "Just remember each time you squeeze her hand, you crush my heart." She tells him further that "She may be one good reason to leave [me]/But I'm a hundred reasons to stay."
"Less Than Half" is standard 80's rock-ballad, of a couple the night after, with the tensions described vividly: "We move in circles/with our eyes on the door/saying so little/thinking much more." Yet the woman here decides to stick with the rotter: "But everything you've ever said was a lie/so pull me closer to your heart that's no good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rock On With Your Bad Self April 10, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Patty Smyth is one of my favourite female vocalists. The problem is, there are so many female vocalists nowadays (the lilith genre), that Patty gets lost in tha mix. I always forget about her music. But then when i stumble across this album, i say "oh yeah, forgot about this" and play it. Then i get rocked. I have listened to this album for over 10 years. "The Warrior" was like my theme song when I was 14 years old. I enjoy the whole album but "hands tied" and "less than half" are my faves. I could listen to those songs a million times.
Patty Smyth is an overlooked musical rock goddess. Her voice has got so much soul and strenth it cuts straight to the heart. She puts sirens like Jewel and Faith Hill to shame. I am wondering when she'll release another album? Rock on, Patty.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worthy follow-up to Scandal's debut album... January 5, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I must admit that the effort was definitely placed into the production of the album: the eponymous, mantra-charged "The Warrior", [however the music video is nothing short of the over the top 80's chintziness], to the hypnotic "Beat Of a Heart."[sometimes a fool gets lucky and wins...sometimes the innocent pay for an old man's sins...] (Why "Beat Of A Heart" never made it into the Top 40 is still a mystery to me).
"Hands Tied", another strong performance by Smythe et. al. was another hit that just missed the Top 40, but still deserves a nod of attention for its lyrics.
But there's an overall subdued malaise sensed on this album, sort of like the record big-wigs demanding that Scandal produce a quick succession to their debut "Scandal" album. Too bad that interference from the higher ups at the record label contributed to Scandal's demise, because Scandal was definitely a band that could've produced many more albums to follow. Let's just say that "The Warrior" doesn't give Scandal their defining moment in rock history, but it certainly associates the gutsiness and daring lyrics that gives Scandal their good name. "The Warrior" is definitely worth having in your collection.

Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It is VERY sad that this is the ONLY full album by Scandal. They released an EP before this (would love to get that on CD!) and Patty Smyth went on to a 'solo' career. This girl has got one hell of an awesome voice!! But sorry, her solo stuff just doesn't measure up to her work with Scandal. Don't know why, but Scandal as a band was very exciting and good. Just would have loved to have seen them release more albums! Scandal's The Warrior was like Berlin's Count Three and Pray and The Motels Shock. All three of these bands dis-banded after releasing their best work! Every track on The Warrior is amazing!! It is a timeless classic without 'sounding' like new wave.
But why only one full LP? We may never know, I am just glad they left us with this masterpiece.
This CD was made back when CDs were somewhat a new technology. In fact, I remember when most were made in Japan and Germany. The US caught on quick enough, though. This is an older CD that could use some digital remastering. When it states 'analogue recording' on the cover, you KNOW it's old! But even without the newer 96 kHz/24 bit remastering, this is still great stuff!! Too bad this band didn't last long. Too bad they won't reunite. Would love to hear them live again! This album makes me feel young again!!

Warrior meet my expectations. I especially enjoyed "The Warrior," a song I always called, "Bang, Bang." I hope Patty Smyth and John McEnroe enjoy their marriage.
