5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent reissue 18 Feb 2008
Format:Audio CD
UFO fans will know NHP as the album that started the move into light and shade country. Danny Peyronnel was really undervalued and it is interesting to think what may have been if he hung around longer. The pieces he wrote are excellent UFO tunes "Highway Lady" and "Can you roll Her" Wham bam thank you mam songs followed by the beautiful Martian Landscape - Apparently written about Argentina !!?. On this reissue he gets a writing credit on "On with the action" also.
The previously unreleased extras are worth the price of admission a Peyronnel ditty "All the strings" Two covers "All or nothing" a live favourite and another Frankie Miller cover "Have you seen me lately Joan". Even time for two UFO compositions "French kisses" and "Do it if you can".
Put these alongside the classic riff of "Natural thing" or the best concise solo Schenker has ever attempted "Reasons Love" you get a six star package.
A lot of time and effort has gone into these three reissues

5.0 out of 5 stars The best UFO studio album in the world...ever!! 10 Jan 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Make no mistake - the run of UFO albums from Phenomenon to, and including, No Place To Run (I know - it didn't have Schenker on guitar but it's still a corker) was probably the most brilliant and consistent run of albums made by any rock band, I kid you not. And No Heavy Petting is the perfect balance of melody and fretboard-shredding rock. Listen to that Schenker solo on Reasons Love - you will not find a more blistering solo anywhere. And Highway Lady is sublime - it sums up everything about UFO in to one classic rocker. This album has to be in your collection. Trust me on this one!

4.0 out of 5 stars hard,heavy but not many sales!?! 19 July 2004
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
i bought this album when it first came out in 1975/6 merely on the strength of its cover - check it out and see what i mean.being a fan of all things british e.g led zep,sabbath hawkwind etc etc i was looking for something new and did i find it.
on the first track "natural thing"the guitar sound from schenker is awesome - what a mother of all riffs.the album contrasts the songs well from rockers to slower ballads.
this is not the ufo of the lights out/obsession era but just as good in a more subtle(!) way.even franky miller gets a look in with one of his "pop songs" being covered for a possible single release i would have thought.
this album did not sell too well but things were to change in the next 12 months with the departure of danny peyronnel(ex heavy metal kids ) and the incoming paul reymond on keyboards/guitar
.i love this album purely for the attacking sound of schenkers flying V(plus a few decent songs).give it a try ?

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! 26 Mar 2008
Format:Audio CD
This is a brilliant re-master of a classic rock album. Please see my review of the original album for more detail if you like, suffice to say this is well engineered and comes with bonus material for the collectors. One of their best studio albums from a golden age and one of my favourites to this day. Bliss!

5.0 out of 5 stars The forgotten gem!! 27 Aug 2007
By TV
Format:Audio CD
May I first say, I think it's criminal that EMI bought the rights to the other 4 Chrysalis releases, but never bothered to reissue this one. Why?

Maybe it didn't have the immediate impact of "Force It", but it's still great, anyway.

I could never understand why this wasn't the breakthrough album that the band deserved, it's a complete mystery! Some blamed new keyboard player Danny Peyronnel, but it wasn't his fault, as the keyboards always added something to the sound. I think the main problem is that UFO really needed a keyboard/guitar player (which they got with Paul Raymond), to beef up the heavier songs, and add sparkle to the slower ones.

It opens with the brilliant "Natural Thing", and then continues with a particular favourite of mine "I'm a Loser", both later immortalized on the superb live "Strangers in the Night". The live versions even surpassed these studio ones, but they are both brilliant songs anyway, so they still stand up.

The material on this album is first rate, and I can't understand why the likes of "Belladonna" (probably their best ever ballad), the powerful "Reasons Love" (with Schenker on fire, again!), and the brilliant, sleazy "On with the Action", didn't ever make it into the live set, as they are all as good as any songs that the band ever wrote. Even the stuff that Peyronnel co-wrote were still good, and I like listening to "Highway Lady" and "Martian Landscape".

There's nothing at all wrong with this album,even the production is pretty good, although producer Leo Lyons got his marching orders after this one to be replaced by Ron Nevison for the next three. It seems like "scapegoats" were needed for this album not being the success that the band had hoped, so the producer, and the keyboard player got the boot!

By Mr Blackwell TOP 500 REVIEWER

of a fairly overlooked UFO album,probably the least heralded of the(original) schenker era,falling between FORCE IT & LIGHT OUT,this has been marginalised by many including myself however this reissue re-address' this album and what a revelation it is.Opening as was now expected with a couple of UFO standards - 'Natural Thing & Im a Loser' this rocks from the outset , then the changes 'Can you roll her' with its blatant WHO influences and the haunting 'Belladona',this is less heavy rock and certainly a softer side to the band and the fabulous Reason to Love' and superb 'Highway Lady compound that fact,this is UFO takin' chances confident in their ability to produve quality music and not be tied in to the rock/metal scene.The album closes out with 'On With The Action',Fool In Love' and Martian Landscape,the latter returning to the heavy rock arena the fomer duo highlighting again the softer side,back in the day,i was slightly disappointed with this album and it passed me by,it probably would have gotten 2 stars.

bonus tracks: 5 studio tracks none of which will ever trouble the heavier classics in the bands catalogue but they are all excellent, covers of the small faces and frankie miller(the 2nd cover on this album),all would have been welcome on the original release although it does hint at maybe the band wanting to head off into a mellower area,more Bad company than Judas Priest.This is the UFO album to listen if you want something different.

All in all after 30 odd years and the addition of 5 excellent studio tracks this album has warranted a reappraisal and a solid 4 star rating.
