After Goodnight L.A. there was a shake up at Polydor and Magnum would ultimately part company with the record company. Rather than sign to another big label, the band signed to heavy metal music based label, Music For Nations, stripped down their sound and recorded this little cracker.

Sleepwalking shows Magnum removing some of the frills and window dressing and just getting on with it. Tony Clarkin's songs bristle with a raw energy and the individual musicianship has probably never been at a higher level than this.

The album has a variety of different tracks, ranging from commercial numbers, hard rockers and traditional Magnum staples. As a result, it's one of the bands most genuinely entertaining records.

Too Much To Ask, You're The One, Just One More Heartbreak and the Yes-like Only In America provide that commercial appeal now expected on Magnum albums post The Eleventh Hour, and both Broken Wheel and Every Woman, Every Man are decent ballads.

For me though, the more traditional tracks shine the most here. Stormy Weather is a superbly low key album opener, The Flood sees the band coming close to musical savagery, the title track is wonderfully overblown and the moody Long Ride closes the album brilliantly.

Worth noting is Mickey Barker's drumming on this album. Anyone aspiring to be a top rock tub thumper needs to listen to his work here, especially on The Flood. He's on fantastic form right throughout the record and his general performance raises the bar for everyone else concerned.

It's also good to see Rodney Matthews providing some cover artwork after a considerable absence.

The only real complaint is that there is perhaps a song or two too many on the album.

Well... I've been a fan of Magnum since I knew them during a party back in 1988, when my friends introduced me to On A Storyteller's Night giving excuses because "they know that is not a hard-rock album, but it is fine". It blew me away... Since then, I am a follower of this band, although here, in Mexico, is very difficult to find anything about Magnum (thanks Amazon UK).

Regarding this record I think that have really good material, and with moving songs like Stormy Weather, Too Much To Ask and You're The One, although I could keep all the album as one of my favorites. Is felt that all members of the band were very involved with this album: Tony Clarking with a really good guitar sense, Mark Stanway with excellent keyboard injections, Mickey Barker with a neat and thundering work in drums, Colin "Wally" Lowe with (as always) well embodied bass, and Bob Catley singing from the heart.

I give 4 stars to this album because the sound is really bad. This is one of this records that really deserves to be fully remastered. The sound is artificial, bass tones are almost gone and mids seems to be too much high. I did a "remaster" of it for myself with my own means, and it sounds really different. Nevertheless, is not the same to have the original record in my Magnum collection fully and professionally remastered. I hope that this happens soon.

To me this is one of Magnum's best, done at around the time when they were at their peak. I'm not sure whether it's possible to better the magnificent and cleverly written "Wings of Heaven" but this one certainly comes up close behind it. Although I am still very much a fan of all Magnum's stuff, today's albums don't quite cut it like they used to in my humble opinion. The late 80s and early nineties albums are definitely the ones to track down and buy if you want to experience Magnum at their best. This album of course is hard to find but it's well worth the hunt. The album has some instantly likeable tracks with Magnum's "rock melody" appeal (Only in a America and Sleepwalking are excellent) as well as some grow on you after a few listens leaving you hooked for good and wanting to coming back to it time after time. Oh.. and the cover, which has got to be one of best of all on the magnum albums and done by the great Rodney Matthews. If you're lucky enough to find Sleepwalking on 12" vinyl you'll find the subtle details in the artwork a real bonus treat (the CD copy is a little small to show off the picture in its glory).
