Just received my copy of the latest UFO offering and I'm pleased to say after 2 plays I'm right impressed! Moog's vocals can only be described as mature and soulful and the band are clearly in fine form.
I would go so far to say that if this had been released in the late 70s or early 80s it would be regarded as a classic up there with 'Lights Out'. I accept there are no really hard keyboard driven tracks in the classic vain of say 'Lights Out' or 'Doctor Doctor'.In fact I can't really detect any keyboards in the mix at all; that does'nt detract from the whole feel that this is classic UFO stuff. The majority of the tracks remind me of that classic offering the mighty 'On with the Action'which one seldoms find reference to on any greatist or best of's UFO. I for one unlike other reviews like the recent 2/3 albums after all the guys are getting older and have already proved their pedigree and have all those classics in their locker.
I have the digi pak version which offers 2 bonus tracks which I feel are the only let down on the album and are just filler or rejects but are there anyway.
I will be looking forward to hearing most of these numbers live on the upcoming tour but I'm sure only 2 or 3 will be played to make room for all those classics from the past...bet they don't play 'On With the Action'?

As an old fan of UFO and since their last album worthy of a play was Mechanix, I approached this album with much concern.

20 plays on and Seven Deadly is frankly astonishingly brilliant. I cannot stop listening. If someone had told me that Schenker 'of old' was back, I might have believed them such are the riffs and solos reminiscent of his period in UFO.

All I can say is do not judge on your initial listen. Mogg growls, his lyrics are Texan and moody. The music is powerful even lacking Way driving the bass.

I love this album, the only weak track is the 12th and freebie on the digipack.

Buy it if you love the rockers of old. At first, you will think why I have bothers, then you more you play it, the more you enjoy!

Who else could come up with lyrics like "Fight night on Mexican TV!"

If you read this feedback Mogg and crew, STUNNING! Thank you.

I'm a bit slow off the mark with this one but then I've played it to death on holiday to be sure. I guess it's easy to criticise with a huge back catalogue to assimilate with but I can make no apology for liking UFO and this album is no exception. To my ears star quality emanates from Phil Mogg who could probably re-record ABBA's Greatest Hits and I would like it.

First impressions were nice artwork and what an absolutely stonkin' opener with "Fight Night" heard on some early sampled releases. The first three tunes "Fight Night", "Wonderland" and "Mojo Town" are all great fiery guitar rockers that will go down very nicely live with some sizzling lead guitar work. "Angel Station" is the first ballad and despite the idiosyncratic title has that classic UFO structure with a lovely gentle rhythm and Mogg lyric. This also provides evidence that Mr Raymond's keyboard does still apparently exist. Criminally retired to the background he must have forgotten what his keys look like there is so little of it featured on the album. "Year of the Gun" is a catchy little thing of a pop-rock number, more lightweight and candidate for a single if ever there was one. Nice little hook and leads from Moore. The next two songs "The Last Stone Rider" and "Steal Away" are more forgettable album tracks, chug along guitar rockers although Moore plays some nice stuff on "Steal Away". "Burn Your House Down" is the second ballad..."second verse, same as the first" but not quite as good.
"The Fear" is a return to a bluesy feel with upfront harmonica, first impression reminiscent of a Dr. Feelgood type thing. "Waving Good Bye" is a nice ballad with a keyboard/acoustic verse that builds to a rocking chorus, the sort of tune they do so well (and have done better many times before).

This album is just fantastic. I already converted three friends to UFO on the basis of this album alone. Just recommended that they get the Chrysalis Years 5-CD set too. Vinnie Moore's blues-rock guitar work is fabulous: fast when it needs to be, soleful, driving when it has to be. All the reviews here seem to pick a different track as a favourite. Mine happens to be Burn Your House Down, closely followed by Angel Station and The Last Stone Rider, but all the tracks have a hook, whether it's a catchy riff, clever lyrics or a stunning solo.

UFO's best album since You Are Here sees them still airing their blues roots while making a welcome return to their hard rock roots. For me the difference Seven Deadly has is the better production values. Songs sound fatter and beefier, with Andy Parker having possibly the best drum sound he has ever had. One criticism of the Vinnie albums is that some songs sound unfinished - like they needed more polish to get the hooks in. No such problem here - each track is well crafted and arranged. Standout tunes for me are Angel Station, Year of the Gun, Waving Goodbye and the bonus track Other Men's Wives, but for me there isn't a filler track on the album. Special comment for Phil Mogg, whose performance is outstanding throughout the album. He has improved with age and is truly a master of phrasing, enunciation and singing every word like he means it. His performance on The Last Stone Rider reminds me of Lennon singing Twist and Shout - he is pushing his voice that hard.

Seven Deadly - it's up there with the finest albums UFO have recorded. Listen, enjoy, and if you've got the monkey keep it to yourself. They are in high demand :)
