5.0 out of 5 stars TAKE FLIGHT!!! 8 Nov 2006
By Stotty
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Wings Of Heaven represents Magnum's commercial peak. It also happens to be one of the finest British rock albums of the late 1980s.

What guitarist/songwriter Tony Clarkin manages to pull offf here, is creating a set of songs which balance the band's early sound (Chase The Dragon, Kingdom Of Madness), with the more streamlined sound of the previous two records (Vigilante, On A Storytellers Night). The result is an album of breathtaking quality.

Days Of No Trust, Start Talking Love and It Must Have Been Love are irresistibly accessible tracks, and its no surprise that all three were hit singles at the time. Pray For The Day, One Step Away, Don't Wake The Lion and my personal favourite, Wild Swan are much bigger, more complex tracks that give a tip of the hat to former glories, and Different Worlds is a good if a little forgettable album filler.

The production is crisp, slick and powerful and the cover artwork is stylish, evoking memories of U2's Unforgettable Fire sleeve.

It's no surprise that Wings Of Heaven made the top ten here in the U.K., or that Magnum would end this period as perhaps the most popular band of their ilk in Europe. It's just a shame that more difficult times lay ahead for the group. For the time being though, this was a band at the peak of their powers and if anyone can track down the live video (no DVD as yet sadly) of their show at the Hammersmith Odeon from the Wings... tour (I grabbed a copy from this website), you'll know what I'm getting at. Sublime.

5.0 out of 5 stars Champagne moment from Magnum... 21 Jan 2010
Format:Audio CD
Magnum are like that old cardigan you juct can't throw out, despite the hole at the elbow. These guys produced some fine melodic rock during the 80's, finishing with this masterpiece at the end of the decade. 'Wings...' has it all, good pop rock in 'Days of No Trust' and 'Start Talking Love'; fine Magnum standards (in no way are they 'standard' in their execution) with 'One Step Away' and 'Pray For The Day'; cracking little ballad 'Must Have Been Love' and then there's...

Well there's 2 blow away tracks!! Tony Clarkin wrote some great songs in his time and it seems he used all his experience to write 'Wild Swan'- the song that includes the lyric 'On Wings of Heaven', and it does just that when listening to the wonderfully, descrptive words infused with Tony Clarkin's fine guitar.

The other track is the final number on the album. I saw Magnum on this tour and couldn't believe they did this live. It was breath taking. Truly wonderful...
'Don't Wake The Lion' is, is... get the headphones out, dim the lights, sit back and close your eyes. Allow yourself to be took thru a journey. A song that describes the hope, despair and grim, futile reality of war. A great use of sound affects that adds so much depth and extra dimension to a song that is in itself a mini opera.

Magnum came to their peak at the wrong time, a victim of grunge!! But what a peak! If you want to own a piece of 80's classic rock then this is it, and then some...

5.0 out of 5 stars A CLASSIC !!!!!!!! 7 Nov 2008
Format:Audio CD
How this band are not one of the biggest in Britain i will never know. This offering was released when commercial rock had an opening in the mainstream in the late 80,s. Wings of Heaven is undoubtedly the most commercial that Magnum released and contains songs that still remain favourites 20 years later. Don,t Wake The Lion is my favourite but my opinion is put the cd on from the start and listen to some of the best songwriting by a british band since the beatles. There is not a filler on the cd and every song could be a hit single.Take my advice and try this YOU WILL ENJOY IT.

5.0 out of 5 stars My awesome introduction to Magnum 10 Oct 2010
Format:Audio CD
Until I heard Into The Valley Of The Moonking I was convinced this was about as good as Magnum could get. This was the album that got me into Magnum and I always judged everything they do by this one. After a 3 or 4 year break, this album got me back into gigging again and it was every bit as superb live as it was on the album. Every track is strong and this does remain their best piece of studio production work and I do somehow wish Moonking had been given this much attention on the mixing desk because this is so crisp, so deep in sound, so well balanced between drums, guitars, keys and voice .... Moonking is slightly let down by a certain je ne sais quoi that is missing in the mix. Days of No Trust is a superb opener and they just keep on coming through the playlist right through to the huge closing track Don't Wake The Lion. Wings Of Heaven is a fantastic album ...if I wanted to get anyone into Magnum I would lend them this first ... its that good. If you buy this you will end up buying more Magnum without a shadow of a doubt.

I stumbled across Magnums Vigilante album in 1986 and thought it was great. Of course the band have been together since the early 70's and I wondered what they'd been doing all of those years. One by one I bought all of the back catalogue and found that Magnum were great songwriters and fantastic live. In 1988 they released Wings of Heaven. Possibly one of their best albums, and certainly there most successful. They even had a top 40 hit with Start Talkin' Love. The album offers a complete diversity from the stomping Days Of No Trust to the operatic Don't Wake The Lion. Try it out !!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great album from midlands rockers
A must buy if only for 'Don't Wake the Lion', one of the finest war songs ever made. But that is not the only great track on the CD, it is filled with classics.
