4.0 out of 5 stars Heard Worse 26 Sep 2010
Format:Audio CD
I tend to remember this as a good album that marked the beginning of a steady decline. This was followed by the introduction of the more West coast collaborations with Robin McAuley which was not my cup of tea at the time.

Back in the eighties this album sounded pretty solid with 6 or 7 typically melodic Schenker tunes and two or three more commercial, dare I say forgettable, weaker tracks. The opener "Rock my Nights Away" is classy with a heavily influenced keyboard rhythm. "I'm Gonna Make You Mine" and "Dogs of War" are also good, the album on the whole leaning towards a more commercial feel. The best track was probably saved till last in the ballad "Walk the Stage", a great version of which can be found on the live album "Rock Will Never Die". The US remixed versions originally sounded pretty awful, the original vinyl having much more power and the guitar guts of Schenker's earlier work. The guitars were almost lost in a wash of keyboards and squealy vocals, Gary Barden in fact being replaced on the lead vocal on "Still Love that little Devil" by Derek St. Holmes.

Reasons to get another copy then. This is a great re-master. Great because I don't think the original GB release was on CD (haven't got a copy myself anyway). It gives you the opportunity to get the original British release and compare to the American remixes, both of which now sound much better. I would rate the US versions as a three star plus, the original vinyl or GB version being worth an extra star. After this album I have to admit that I lost interest in MSG for a while. I therefore disagree that this is Michael Schenker's weakest album as suggested by some. There's worse!

4.0 out of 5 stars Time to reappraise? 9 Aug 2011
By Mr Blackwell TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Another Schenker disc which was roundly criticised when released back in '84,I always felt it was a decent effort,this remastered edition only confirms that belief.

The original UK album had several classic tracks,namely the opener 'Rock the Nights Away','Rock Will Never Die',the superb instrumental 'Captain Nemo' and 'Still Love That Little Devil'

The remix USA version,re sequenced the tracks,most were slightly longer,the sound quality,to these ears,slightly better,where it also won was the introduction of Derek St Holmes vocal on 'Still Love That Little Devil' and the guitar intro to 'Rock My Nights Away',small changes i know but it swung the USA remix ahead ,in my humble opinion,the remastered edition allows you to compare both versions,i still prefer the USA version.

All in all an excellent release,well worth buying.

4.0 out of 5 stars Choice of two versions 27 Aug 2010
By G. Richards - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
For some years, Michael Schenker's Built to Destroy album has been available in two versions. This edition consists of both, remastered on a single CD. The first nine tracks are the British version, which features a harsher, starker sound. Tracks 10-18 are the American version, which features more prominent keyboards, and gives the songs a fuller, more melodic feel. On the British edition, the anthemic Rock Will Never Die was titled Walk the Stage, and includes a longer solo at the end. According to the liner notes, Schenker himself preferred the American version. Irrespective of which version one prefers, this edition allows the listener to choose. Admittedly, this was not Schenker's strongest album. The band was in some turmoil at the time, due to repeated personnel changes. Nevertheless, the best songs provide some solid 1980's style metal, while the weaker material is certainly listenable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Underrated CD! 14 May 2010
By T. K. Rocker - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If you love listening to Michael Schenker, DO NOT overlook this CD!
The U.K. version and re-mastering definitely make it a worthwile purchase and it IS CLASSIC MICHAEL SCHENKER! I personally rate the non-live MSG CD's like this:

1) MSG (2nd Album)
2) The Michael Schenker Group (1st Album)
3) Assault Attack (3rd Album)
4) Built to Destroy (4th Album)
All the rest are not quite to the same level.

If you're a Michael Schenker fan, definately get all 4 of these in the re-masters.
Also, the UFO re-masters are awesome too - with great bonus tracks as well.

The only thing I'm not that crazy about on this CD is having the same album repeated twice on the same disc. It's very interesting to hear the difference between the US and UK versions, but once you decide "Yeah, I like the U.K. version better" you find yourself wishing the bonus tracks had more variety.
Although I really like having both versions of "That Little Devil", since one has Gary Barden singing and the other Derek St. Holmes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ahh, the original release... 22 July 2009
By J. Goldsmith - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
All these years after buying the original UK release, back in 1983, the UK release is back. It was nice, but not good enough, that the 1996 release had several of the original mixed tracks. All CD releases of this album have been the US release, until now. The sound is different. Much heavier. The US has always thought it knew best when it came to artists and the sound they wanted to hear. Among other artists, such as Whitesnake, this has never been true. Europe always rocked better than the US in the 80's. The US only ever wanted 'radio-friendly' nonsense. While the 80's US audiences would've preferred to hear their metal on the radio, metal was rarely played until the late '80s. So what was wrong with the European mixes of albums? NOTHING. Glad this one's back. If you're an MSG fan and have only heard the US mix, you must pick this up. The US/polished image of Schenker was never necessary. Strange how in the liner notes for this release, Schenker is quoted as having preferred the US mix. Well, I don't. And you'll agree once you've heard this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better Than Advertised 1 Jun 2011
By lenonomusic - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Built To Destroy is a much-maligned release by Michael Schenker. I've always believed the negative reviews were based on the throng of fans that continued to look at Schenker as the UFO wonderboy and axe-hero. Much like the rest of us Schenker grew up and started to experiment with new sounds. The use of keyboards on the album are certainly the most overt use of them on any Schenker release, however, it adds to songs rather than becoming distractions.
Keep in mind the release date of the album in the post-Pyromania rock world. I would put Rock My Nights Away, Systems Failing and Love That Little Devil as excellent examples of how rock evolved in the early-to-mid 1980s.
