5.0 out of 5 stars Music for the grown ups, 29 May 2006
This review is from: Walk On Water (Audio CD)
As I write this is on sale for less than a fiver - if someone can come up with a better way to spend this, I'll eat my socks!

UFO have managed to avoid living on past glories or trying to keep up with trends - what they have done in recent times (starting with this album) is to continue to play the absolute best of melodic rock without feeling out of touch with their roots or their ever advancing age (they've been around for more than 30 years) - like some of us of advancing years, they seem to be able to recognise that you can be contemporary without having to be trendy.

There are some references to the past - the remakes of Lights Out and Doctor,Doctor are there I think to link new listeners to their past, but if you are a first time listener, ignore these and instead enjoy what is probably one of the best comeback albums of all time - when you put this album up against modern rock albums, you can see how hard it is for new acts to beat the past masters - any modern rock album has to reference UFO in one way or another, as these guys are on top of their game here, combining meaningful lyrics (listen to Pushed to the Limit if you want to know what being middle aged feels like) with guitar work of the highest level thanks to Mr Moody himself, Michael Schenker.

If you are under 30 and into modern rock oriented music, then risk a fiver and enjoy a dip into the past - if you are over 30 and remember bands like Thin Lizzy but haven't listened to UFO before, then sacrifice a pint and buy this instead - you won't regret it
