5.0 out of 5 stars A Bit of Extra Spit and Polish 23 July 2008
Format:Audio CD
Excellent remaster of this classic album. Not too much has been tinkered with to my ears, just a bit more power in the mix with some nice bonus material. The original was a very polished piece of work and was starting to sound a little lightweight when compared to their most recent recordings. This is therefore another welcome addition.

4.0 out of 5 stars UFO at their peak. 29 Oct 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
It's hard to believe now, but in the late 70's UFO were all that was right with heavy rock music and 'Lights Out' was an example of UFO at their peak. Michael Schenker is to the fore with guitar work which points forward to the likes of Eddie Van Halen and carries the album with fast, melodic riffs and solos, best exemplified on the title track. Phil Mogg's lyrics and vocals manage to be both soulful and world weary- a result of several hard years touring and wild living. Overall the band deliver a convincing set that manages to link the feeling of the late 60's ( Alone Again Or) with the contemporary energy of this era's punk. An excellent introduction to the band, only worth 4 stars due to its brevity and slightly muddy bass mix.

5.0 out of 5 stars ufo back on course for the stars. 25 Jan 2010
By Mr Blackwell TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Pretty much the perfect album and indeed many fans choice as best UFO disc,i still think 'Force It' pushes it very close.Its actually quite hard to convey in print just how wonderful this album is,its really 8 tracks of a band at their absolute creative peak!

Opening with 'Too Hot To Handle & Just Another Suicide' the lads show they've got this down pat stunning rocker followed by the commercial hook,how many band s would kill to be able to open their albums like this,the aforementioned tracks contain every UFO trade mark and for the last 30 years this album has been milked by many a band to develop their own career,Def Lepard anyone?,side one of the original vinyl closed with the stunning 'Try Me' with typical jaw dropping guitar solo from Michael Schenker and the anthemic 'Lights Out',(an interesting aside, in the booklet the ridiculous original review by Geoff Barton,3 stars and denigrating Try Me!!!!)

Side 2 opened with 'Gettin Ready' which should have ripped up the charts,im sure had Aerosmith/Van Halen/Kiss or Ted Nugent recorded it' america would have fallen to its knees,still,'Alone Again' is a faithful cover version then its back to the rock god arena with the excellent 'Electric Phase' and sublime 'Love To Love',really this is music to die for,had Zeppelin recorded the last two tracks we would have feted them for ever.

Bonus tracks : 4 decent live recordings including Love To Love and Try Me with Schenker manfully trying to reproduce the album solos in the live arena,on reflection this disc is so good that the live tracks aren't needed but a nice touch none the less,this is a must have disc.

5.0 out of 5 stars A jewel amongst the finest rock 13 Oct 2006
Format:Audio CD
Without a doubt, Lights Out is one of the best rock albums to emerge from the fabulous '70s. Every song here is a "10+". No other band managed the beautiful use of background strings on rock songs like these legends did back in 1977. The formula was repeated in 1978 with Obsession, and then again in 1981 with the highly underrated The Wild, The Willing and The Innocent.

The fabulous UFO chemistry was at its best when they recorded this one. No need for commercial airwave success to recognize how awesome this band sounded. Arguably, this is one of the top 3 hard rock albums stemming out from real rock's most prolific era.

The cherry on the cake: The remastered sound of this edition is excellent (Note: other low quality remastered versions such as the double CDs issued by BMG are to be avoided).

This is an absolute MUST HAVE.

4.0 out of 5 stars Misty Green and Blue 4 April 2006
By bobm
Format:Audio CD
The album where UFO accepted that keyboards had a part to play. After a couple of listens I defy you not to sing along with Lights Out and Love To Love. Much better for its remastering.
A short album...they had to be if they were going to be loud (ask your parents to explain "grooves")
Quite possibly the best voice in rock....and still getting better!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Classic UFO Sound 10 Feb 2007
Format:Audio CD
This is the architypal UFO album where the best line up ever found their true sound. I hate the term "heavy Metal" and don't consider UFO to be anything other than a quality rock band. This album has everything, powerful guitars and rasping solo's like the classic "Lights Out",a beautiful ballad in "Try Me" , melody, orchestral arrangements and the classic "Love to Love". UFO discovered here that they could use keyboards and keep it heavy. All eight songs are great with plenty of variety to make it a real good listen even thirty years on.
