5.0 out of 5 stars Without Rivals 12 Oct 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Even without Michael Schenker, UFO are a very good rock band indeed. With Michael Schenker, they are capable of being the world's greatest rock band, as Walk on Water demonstrates. This is UFO's classic line-up, and it shows. The song-writing is first-class, establishing Mogg as rock's finest vocalist in my view. The guitar-work is what shines out, however. Schenker emerged in that pre-shred guitar era when there was plenty of raw power and speed, but without the generic 'sameness' of more recent shredders. Rock songs should not just be vehicles for guitar-tricks, but integrated units that take you on a journey. And yet, the guitar-work must still be great - Schenker achieves this here. The song dictates the guitar-work, and not vice-versa. And yet, the standard of playing he reaches on tracks like Venus is awe-inspiring. But because it fits the song so well, you are given a choice: either you can go on your own journey when you listen to the track without being distracted by a showcase of vanity, OR you can listen to the great guitar-work. Walk on Water is really an 8 track album with 5 bonus tracks. All 8 of the main tracks are good, with not a single filler. The first 2 bonus tracks are quality new versions of old classics. The last 3 bonus tracks are adverts for band-members' solo projects - i.e. of these three tracks Schenker only plays on the track from his solo MSG project.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dreaming of Long Lost Summers 9 Mar 2007
Format:Audio CD
I was a huge fan of the "classic line up" in the seventies but lost track of them for a number of years after Schenker left. I didn't much care for the replacement and what with frequent line up changes the band seemed to take an AOR direction. I followed MSG until they got "McCauleyfied" and I guess I just grew old and lost interest in all things UFO. I have always liked beefed up cover versions of old classic songs and recently got blown away by the Schenker Pattison Summit albums (awesome guitar work!). On the back of this and with new found enthusiasm I bought this album about six months ago and it was like being seventeen again. This is a terrific album and I was a re-born fan as soon as "Self Made Man" hit the headphones. "Venus", "Pushed to the Limit" and "Darker Days" are all great UFO tracks with the Schenker Mogg partnership rekindling their seventies magic. None of the other songs disappoint either as the classic line up are in fine form and the production is far superior to anything in the past. The album is a little short on new material with only eight songs but I prefer it that way like the good old vinyl days. This means there are no fillers, only quality tracks. To fill the CD space there are two great re-workings of old favourites "Doctor Doctor" and "Lights Out". This CD version also includes bonus songs from MSG, Paul Raymond Project and Mogg/Way, Raymond's solo effort being the weakest on the album (All are great non the less!). I can honestly say this is up there with their seventies stuff. Unfortunately it was another down hill slide as later albums "Covenant" and "Sharks" although good did not reach the heights of this. The more recent stuff with Vinnie Moore on guitars has rejuvenated the band once more so don't you Schenker fans ignore "You Are Here" and "The Monkey Puzzle". Also check out "$ign of 4" and the Mogg/Way albums which are also brilliant UFO-like albums in all but name.

It's pretty rare that I'm in awe upon listening to a CD for the first time; and that's what happened with UFO's "Walk on Water."

I heard the hype surrounding this the first time around back in 1995/1996, but at that time I was just a casual fan with a passing interest in some of the band's earlier material from the 70's. It was also around that time that my interest in music took a nose-dive due to the proliferation of boy-bands corporate creations that dominated the music scene.

Fast-forward ten year later. I see the CD, remember the good press it got, plop down my money, then pop it into the car CD player. I was immediately impressed with the production and sound quality. "A Self Made Man" was good, but CD for me really kicked in with "Venus" and never let up.

"Dreaming of Summer" has got to be one of the best songs I've heard in the last 15 years by UFO, or anyone. I can hit replay on this one and never tire of it. Why they don't play this in concert in a mystery, as it's one of the best songs UFO has ever done.

Now let's get to the rarity of old bands resurfacing to create a successful album. There are only a few that have done this successfully to create a new fan base. Duran Duran is one that comes to mind from the early 90's with the 1992 "Wedding Album," but this one should be right up there with it. It's my understanding that the volatility of the relationship between Michael Schenker and the rest of the band resulted in the band titling the album "Walk on Water," as it was deemed a miracle such a reunion could happen. It's got to be hard to work under such conditions -- especially with Schenker's erratic behavior -- but if this album (and to a slightly lesser degree "
