Strong Arm of The Law is the third studio album by the English heavy metal band Saxon. It was released in 1980, four months after Wheels of Steel, and debuted on the UK chart at No. 11. "Dallas 1 PM" concerns the assassination of John F. Kennedy. We thought, 'Should we put one shot in there or should we put three?'" recalled singer Biff Byford. In the end we went down the conspiracy theory route and had three shots.

This has to be the greatest Saxon studio album. The riffs aren't quite as well formed, but here, Saxon has really got some good idea going. Strong Arm of the Law" is a bit slower, but sounds like something Accept could've put out in1983-84, or so. Very much ahead of this time, this album is. "Taking Your Chances" is more power-metal than anything else.
