I truly believe this UFO album deserves a lot more credit then it ever got. Unfortunately it is the forgotten UFO album . Sure , it is not Obsession or Lights Out but it is a very good album. If you are a UFO fan and never owned this cd , now is the time to get it .There is some great rock n' roll here . "When it's time to rock" , "Blinded by a lie" , "Diesel in the dust" (one of my all time favorite songs) are just a few . EMI did a great job with the remastering , the sound is outstanding and the packaging is top notch. Buy it , open it , crank it !

While it may not be the first album that comes to mind when you think classic UFO albums, Making Contact is not as bad as some would have you believe.
There is some filler material, but tracks like Diesel In The Dust or The Way The Wild Wind Blows can proudly sit beside any UFO song.
UFO never revolved around Schenker, but was always about the sum of the parts. Chapman has amply demonstrated he fit in the band over the course of the four albums he did with them.
This album did spell the end of the first run UFO, the band later returning with a revamped line up and the underrated Misdemeanor album.
This series of remasters sounds great, the remastering actually adds to the original production. Some bonus live tracks round out this interesting package.

I remember buying this record back in early 1983 having spent my school bus fare on it and walked home, such sacrifices had to be made at the time as a sweet sixteen yr old!
I also recall hiding it under the door mat so my mum wouldn't see it, oh such was the fear in them bygone days of youth of 'being caught' with another rock LP!!
I couldn't wait to spin it on the turntable when she wasn't about and sneaked down stairs to retrieve it! Here is a review of the original vinyl cut which is always the litmus test for any future remastering i believe.

From the opening riff of Blinded By A Lie they storm into one of their best songs ever, one thats totally overlooked for the Sckenker Era. A real shame as Paul 'Tonka' Chapman really smokes on this and turns out a blinding solo. PPPPhhheew! Some great interplay also from Neil Carter on keys and double up bass guitar with Tonka. In fact why Pete Way left is really a mystery as there are some bloody heavy songs on here like the follow up Diesel And Dust which starts with a gloriously dirty/heavy bass line before going into another one of Chapman's trademark riffs and it never lets up as Moggy sings about

'Ted McKinley's dying at the wheel of his truck, the engine running till it ceased up
And nobody heard a thing, not a sound or gunshot ring. Just a smell of diesel in the dust."

Indeed Phil's lyrics are always intriguing storytelling verses that really take the listener into a movie landscape, he could have easily written a screenplay such is his repertoire.
