5.0 out of 5 stars Seven Deadly - up there with UFO's finest, 20 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Seven Deadly (Audio CD)
UFO's best album since You Are Here sees them still airing their blues roots while making a welcome return to their hard rock roots. For me the difference Seven Deadly has is the better production values. Songs sound fatter and beefier, with Andy Parker having possibly the best drum sound he has ever had. One criticism of the Vinnie albums is that some songs sound unfinished - like they needed more polish to get the hooks in. No such problem here - each track is well crafted and arranged. Standout tunes for me are Angel Station, Year of the Gun, Waving Goodbye and the bonus track Other Men's Wives, but for me there isn't a filler track on the album. Special comment for Phil Mogg, whose performance is outstanding throughout the album. He has improved with age and is truly a master of phrasing, enunciation and singing every word like he means it. His performance on The Last Stone Rider reminds me of Lennon singing Twist and Shout - he is pushing his voice that hard.

Seven Deadly - it's up there with the finest albums UFO have recorded. Listen, enjoy, and if you've got the monkey keep it to yourself. They are in high demand :)
