An excellent album. Southern rock at its best. One of their later albums and so less raw than Tomcattin or Strikes but every song rocks! I love this. Buy it and dont miss out.

Although this is a bit more mainstream than the earlier albums I absolutely love it! They played around with synthesizers, so what? The end result still rocks and Medlocke is at his best. Buy this!

i bought SIOGO when it was first released and was slightly disappointed as it was not as raw as maurder. the addition of ken Hensley on keyboards added to the blackfoot sound. There are some strong tracks such as the opener Send me an angel, followed by crossfire. Drivin fool , white mans land and sail away are classic Blackfoot, teenage idol should have been a hit. this album should have lifted Blackfoot to mainstream respectabilty but record company politics got in the way. Give it a listen, it is a real grower. if Blackfoot had carried on in this vein with solid basic production and more hammond organ a la Uriah Heep the results would have been very interesting, instead Charlie Haggret quit, 80's production and synthesizers were introduced and the results are to be found on Vertical Smiles. it isnt great ! some good songs with dreadful production,

Rock Solid Arena Rock 2 Feb. 2005
By John Carroll - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
After non stop touring with everybody and their grandmother for the last 8 years(including The Who, Journey, and The Scorpions), this band had reached a rather disappointing place in 1983. Anybody who saw them live knew that they were one hell of a hard rock outfit. But, with the advent of new wave and techno bands in the early 80's, the no frills sound of Blackfoot was so 1978 and outta here. SIOGO(yeh, we all know what it stands for) was one hell of an arena rock platter with tight hard rock melodic songs fashioned by honest bad ass southern rockers. Interesting though how this album doesn't sound southern at all(save the rave up Drivin Fool). There's a definite british influence on songs like Send Me An Angel, Crossfire, Run For Cover, etc. Me thinks Mr. Medlocke had listened to some Thin Lizzy and UFO. Excellent cover of Nazareth's Heart's Grown Cold with their own stamp on it. The beginning of Sail Away sounds like a long lost Eddie Van Halen riff. Drivin' Fool is redneck headbangin bliss. Every song is anchored by the talented Jakson Spires- one of the best rock drummers ever. Pick it up.

Siogo's History 9 Sept. 2004
By W. West - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Charlie Hargrett (Blackfoot Guitarist from (1969-1984) is, in my humble opinion, a true innovator in Southern Rock sound evolution. He has a web site: [...] that details many of the behind the scenes of the making of the SIOGO album/CD. You might be interested in finding out what the Title stands for. All and all Charlie is a great guy and so is Rickey Medlocke, who my daddy painted houses with in Jacksonville when we were growing up. Now I live over here near Charlie and think about it being a real small world. I played guitar with him once and realized I was outclassed immedately. He plays some local clubs and peals the paint right off the walls, and sends the leseer players packing for the woodsheds, me included. Blackfoot brought an edge to Southern Rock that gave it a voice that made the world take notice to the new guys on the block. Hell they shattered the block and stood on top of the broken pieces and belted out, loud and proud. You can't go wrong with a Blackfoot song. Take it from someone who has met em and growed up around them. They are the real deal.

Blackfoot's strongest release! 8 April 2003
By L. B. Ivarsson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Rick Medlocke was actually playing drums in Lynyrd Skynyrd way back in the early 1970's (and now he has rejoined the band on guitar - the circle is closed). Anyway, Medlocke (vocals, guitar) formed his own band, called it Blackfoot and went for a heavier southern rock approach than he's old companions in Lynyrd Skynyrd. The first release came in 1975 and was titled "No reservations". After another four albums, Blackfoot changed their musical direction a bit and went for a more radio friendly sound on 1983's "Siogo".
In my opinion, "Siogo" is Blackfoot's strongest album ever, with a blend of the typical southern approach and melodic rock full of hooks! It seems like Medlocke and his boys really put a lot of effort in the song writing, shown immediately in the opening up tempo rocker "Send me an angel" with its strong hit potential. This release is packed with strong and attractive tunes like the catchy "Teenage idol", the hard "White man's land", and the speedy "Drivin' fool". Blackfoot are even doing a Nazareth cover ("Hearts grown cold"), and it's appealing that they dared to put a very personal touch by changing the song from a ballad into a rocker - nice work!
I would claim that there's no weak spot anywhere on this very solid album. On the follow up "Vertical smiles", Blackfoot stayed in the land of melodic radio friendly rock but they were unable to recreate the magic shown on "Siogo".

Blackfoot at the Top of Their Game 21 May 2002
By Tom - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I just spent 30 minutes writing a review for this great album, only to get kicked off by my server before finishing! Lost thje whole thing and have to start over. Guess I'm too long winded. That's only because I'm very passionate about this group and especially this album. Blackfoot is the essence of no frills rock'n'roll. Great drumming by one of the best bass beat drummers around, Jakson "Thunderfoot" Spires, great guitar players and an excellent bass player. The heart and soul however, is Rick Medlocke. This album has great production and has probably the best sound quality of any Blackfoot release. Every instrument drives the song relentlessly on throughout the whole set and Rick's vocals have never sounded more sincere, pleading, p.o.'d, longing, or more rockin'. This is my favorite Blackfoot release, with "Tomcattin" in a close second, with no weak points in my opinion. Standout tracks include "Send Me An Angel", which almost immediately hits stride with Rick in fine singing form,"Crossfire", which is my all-time favorite Blackfoot rocker...a perfect rock song driven by a great drum beat,"Teenage Idol", another great rock song about a young man's dreams to be a rocker..maybe the subject has been done, but the tune is first rate with great playing and singing, "White Man's Land", a rowdy tune with a great guitar riff that only suffers from being one lead too short...a lead gutar ending would have made this another top Blackfoot tune...still it's great, and "Sail Away", a great tune about the freedom of the open spaces we came to expect on all Blackfoot releases.
One added feature that made this era of Blackfoot extra special was that Ken Hensley, of Uriah Heep fame, was a band member, who's keyboards added additional texture to the sound. It worked well with the traditional Blackfoot rock recipe. I saw them in Harrisburg PA at the time of this release and was really floored by their sound. A true rock band, true to rock'n'roll. Agreat rock album. Get it Soon!

Slicker, But Still A Masterpiece 30 Nov. 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
SIOGO is slicker than the previous five Blackfoot albums, but it is still a metal masterpiece. After Atco chose not to release HIGHWAY SONG in the U.S. (it came out here last year), the group decided they needed to do something more commercial, so they ditched their Southern sound for pure heavy metal, and the results are great. These guys kept their bluesy hard rock guitars, and they added the keyboards of Ken Hensley, which brought a new dimension to the group's music. They also wrote songs that are often full of recriminations (a carry-over from their earlier records), and they added some party tunes, and the result was their last great album for over a decade. They would hit bottom on the follow-up, VERTICAL SMILES (don't even discuss that one with me), but this one can still cook up a storm on any CD player.
