Alternately fantastic and fantastically silly. 28 Jun. 2004
By Robert Beveridge - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Gary Moore, Victims of the Future (EMI, 1983)
There is quite a fine line between brilliance and cheesiness, and never has that been more evident than on Gary Moore's fourth album, Victims of the Future. Pieces of brilliance (the title track, Shapes of Things, Murder in the Skies) juxtaposed with songs so cheesy they hurt to listen to (Teenage Idol, All I Want). "The Law of the Jungle" straddles the line so closely I can't tell which side it falls on, even after having listened to it hundreds of times in the twenty-one years between its release and now.
Worth having, especially as the title track hasn't seen the light of day (despite Moore's predilection for putting out best-of collections) since the 1984 live album We Want Moore, but you probably want to pick it up used. ***
Great hard-rockin' album 11 Nov. 2007
By Mr. Scott D. Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio Cassette
This is a great early 80s hard rock album. Gary's guitar work combines technical mastery with melody and true feeling (something that other guitarist's of the era were often lacking).

Standout tracks are Victims of the Future, Murder In The Skies, and Empty Rooms. This album is worth its price for those 3 songs alone. There are some other decent tracks here also, with the exception of the dreadful Law of the Jungle.

This album makes a great companion piece for the follow up Run For Cover, which is more "pop". I think "Victims" is slightly superior as it is more consistent overall.

For an extra treat, check out the live version of Shapes of Things to Come on the video "Live in Emerald Isles", the extended solo is simply awesome. Not many other guitarists could do such a brilliant solo over a simple repetitive riff.
GOD BLESS GARY MOORE!!! 19 Feb. 2011
By S. Gilchrist - Published on Amazon.com

ANYTHING Gary More is Classic! Just wanted to say I've enjoyed listening to Gary Moore from the Thin Lizzy days, through his solo days, great live performer, great guy! Mostly under the manstream radar, but the mainstream often ends up stale anyway, so it's been nice to have him consistently put out great stuff and never stale...I often pull out Thin Lizzy or his solo stuff and never tire of it...always fresh-Total brilliance! I was fortunate to have seen him live and still like plugging in my strat and playing the intro to 'End of the World'...lost many of sleep staying up, learning his solos and Van Halen, etc. It's another shock to the music world to lose one of the most beloved rock & blues guitarist! Found dead at 58 on Feb. 6 at a hotel in Spain while on vacation. Thanks for the inspiration brotha- R.I.P.
Rippin' 30 Oct. 2004
By S. R. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Moore' 1983 release "Victims.." is Moore's best all-round effort. Stiil in the thick of his hard-rock era. Moore lays down five of the best hard rock tracks in a row that ever came from 80's metal/hard rock. Tracks 1-5 absolutley smoke. The re-working of the Yardbirds' "shapes of things" is very clever as is the way cool solo in "Teenage Idol" (a tongue-in-cheek take on rock and roll singers). Chocked full of snappy playing and a nice production, "Victims" is a nice look into quality 80's metal before it became too heavy and too fast. High Spots - Shapes of Things, Empty Rooms, Murder in the Skies. Low Spots - All I want.
