Its 80's rock, its big hair, white teeth and flouncy clothes ... its awesome. Anyone who can see past the cheese and chintz of their early career and who has seen them live in recent years will know that Europe are still banging out top notch metal. They are an awesome live act, Joey Tempest is still giving high energy note perfect performances and with Jon Norum back in the band, the original Europe line-up continues to blow their audiences away. All the classics off this album get played every gig with complete audience participation and that reminds you how easy it is to underestimate how good this album actually is. Buy this and some of their newer stuff, then buy some tickets for their 2015 UK tour and I guarantee you leave the place with a massive grin on your face and a hoarse voice from all the singing along. Better than any Bon Jovi gig

4.0 out of 5 stars It just hasn't thumped me between the eyes quite like Into The Valley of The Moonking, 15 Dec. 2014

After the last 3 albums, I was slightly underwhelemed by this one. It just hasn't thumped me between the eyes quite like Into The Valley of The Moonking, The Visitation or On The 13th Day. That said, its a grower. Its good solid rock music, no bad songs but nothing leapt out as gig favourites, although teh new material was very well received on the UK leg of the Shadow Garden tour.

OOOOH MY GOOOOD!! Just when you think LP may be at risk of becoming jaded and losing their mojo, they rock up with this awesome album. A clever mixture of their early energy and tempo coupled with their later cultrured writing, The Hunting Party is a masterpeiece of an album. Caught them playing it live at O2 Arena in Nov 14 and they put on an astounding show, note perfect in every respect, lots of energy, clever medleys, epic light show and dub mixing.

Its clear these guys have got so much more creative output ahead of them, this album is one of their finest. Buy it, enjoy it and regret not catching the tour.

You dont have to like metal to like this album - it is simply a fabulous collection of songs. Not a single bad track ... not a single song you would skip past. Sometimes bands just produce a piece of musical brilliance and in this instance, Shinedown have surpassed themselves. Saw them on tour with Alter Bridge and they rocked the house down, with a full selection of tracks from this album. Hard to see how they can possibly better this .... but we said the same when Alter Bridge released AB III only to then produce the epic Fortress .... so maybe the next Shinedown album can bring even greater excellence.

Not quite as good as the unbeleivably superb "Between the Devil and The Deep Blue Sea" but a half decent album anyway. Seen this band live 3 times now and whilst they are excellent on reciord, they are awesome live performers and give a great show.

5.0 out of 5 stars QUALITY FOOTWEAR - WORTH THE MONEY, 15 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought these for my partner as she needs supportive footwear following cheilectomy surgery. She now owns 3 pairs because Merrell Siren Sport have proven to be the best fit for her feet and the goretex range give weatherproof protection too. These are extremely lightweight, so you hardly know you have them on and they have started to come in an increasing range of brighter colours (as per the turquoise and lime green ones I ordered here). Really warm too.

Love the smell of this - as a regular runner I use this to keep the skin on my feet soft. It works a treat and has reversed some dry, cracked patches and a small squirt goes a long way too.

My partner started having the standard bouts of hot flushes, sometimes upwards of 6 or 7 a night (her worst night was into double figures) and her sleep patterns were all over the place. This may sound like I am exaggerating but after 5 days of taking these tablets she was down to just a couple of random flushes and after just a week they had gone completely and she no longer gets them anymore. Its seems like a miracle that's too good to be true but she genuinely hasn't had a hot flush now for over 3 weeks.

Not sure if it works this well for everyone but its well worth the £7 a pack we paid for a bulk order.

5.0 out of 5 stars A GENUINELY EPIC PEICE OF WORK, 28 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fortress (Audio CD)
I read a lot of reviews for this album ahead of going to see AB at Wembley this year. Some comments went so far as to call it their best album yet, which made me think "Hold on a minute ... they have done 3 immense albums ... are you sure this is that good?" but having listened to it non-stop for over a month I can honestly say they are right. Awesome song writing, superb musical blend and the tunes all just get inside your head. My particular favourites are the opening track Cry Of Achilles, track 4 Lover and track 9 Farther Than The Sun. That is now 4 stonking good albums from this band, who seem to get better with each release ... I heartily recommend you buy this ...somehow they have topped AB III ...and trust me that takes some doing

4.0 out of 5 stars Phil Mogg is as good as ever, 17 Mar. 2013
This review is from: Seven Deadly (Audio CD)
The UFO/Michael Schenker split happened just as I was really getting into metal and I have to confess I was more of an MSG fan and much to my regret the whole UFO thing almost passed me by. It is only in the last 3 or 4 years that I have started listening to them properly, probably prompted by their repeated airplay on Planet Rock, which we have going all day at work. So when UFO came touring in my hometown, I decided to buy a ticket and also a copy of their new album so I have some sense of what I may be treated to. This is a really good album although I have to confess it isn't graced with those stand out signature songs that UFO became famous for. However, whilst none of these are instantly catchy in the vein of stuff like Lights Out, Doctor Doctor, Only You Can Rock me or Rock Bottom .... it is a collection of well crafted and especially well produced tracks. The complete stand out track on here is Burn Your House Down ... an absolute treat played live and a song I think is as strong as some of their early stuff and in a more laid back style similar to Love To Love. Year of The Gun, Other Mens Wives, Steal Yourself and Fight Night are the other stand out tracks for me.

If you get the chance to catch UFO live I would heartily recommend you do so ... Phil Mogg still has a pitch perfect voice, facially he has hardly aged and he puts on a great show, Vinnie Moore also gives a fantastic lead guitar performance for the crowd, Andy Parker is still relentlessly pounding the skins and Paul Raymond (also ex-MSG) is out there playing up to the crowd on guitars and keyboards. They are a superb live act, and my enjoyment was probably helped by the fact that Norwich Waterfront is a venue where you are literally 3-4 ft from the band, they are virtually in the crowd.

But back to the album ..... is this a UFO classic? No! Is it a good album? Hell Yes!! In short - I have no regrets about buying it.
