Hair of the Dog is Nazareth's biggest hit, as well as their best album, containing both the thundering title track and their cover of "Love Hurts," which turned out to be the blueprint for the heavy-metal power ballads that dominated the pop charts of the late '80s. * * * *

Hair of the Dog is the group's most consistent album, with "Love Hurts" and the relentlessly nasty title track. * * * *
