This collection ranges back to the 1970's and shows the unique nature of this band. They were, and still are, strong in every area that a heavy rock band needs. In Phil Mogg, they have a social commentator with superb lyrics and vision. The songs have catchy choruses and the power ballads are absolutely heart-rending. However, when they want to, they can rock as hard as anyone. "Rockbottom" and "Lights Out" are evidence of their abilities. They have superb riffs using their excellent bass player Pete Way, ably assisted by an excellent drummer in the shape of Andy Parker. This bands are no set of headbangers, there is serious musicianship under their memorable songs. The lead guitarist, Michael Schenker, relies on melodic and speedy guitar solos to polish off their superb performances. Paul Raymond on keyboards gave a new dimension to their sound, especially relevant in the poignant "Love to Love." This series of albums is an excellent introduction to a young band on the make and, for the price of a coffee and a doughnut, you can have some of their best music pumping out of your car as you drive home from work. You won't regret it!
