An excellent album. Southern rock at its best. One of their later albums and so less raw than Tomcattin or Strikes but every song rocks! I love this. Buy it and dont miss out.

Although this is a bit more mainstream than the earlier albums I absolutely love it! They played around with synthesizers, so what? The end result still rocks and Medlocke is at his best. Buy this!

i bought SIOGO when it was first released and was slightly disappointed as it was not as raw as maurder. the addition of ken Hensley on keyboards added to the blackfoot sound. There are some strong tracks such as the opener Send me an angel, followed by crossfire. Drivin fool , white mans land and sail away are classic Blackfoot, teenage idol should have been a hit. this album should have lifted Blackfoot to mainstream respectabilty but record company politics got in the way. Give it a listen, it is a real grower. if Blackfoot had carried on in this vein with solid basic production and more hammond organ a la Uriah Heep the results would have been very interesting, instead Charlie Haggret quit, 80's production and synthesizers were introduced and the results are to be found on Vertical Smiles. it isnt great ! some good songs with dreadful production,

HASH(0x97e44d08) out of 5 stars Rock Solid Arena Rock 2 Feb. 2005
By John Carroll - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
After non stop touring with everybody and their grandmother for the last 8 years(including The Who, Journey, and The Scorpions), this band had reached a rather disappointing place in 1983. Anybody who saw them live knew that they were one hell of a hard rock outfit. But, with the advent of new wave and techno bands in the early 80's, the no frills sound of Blackfoot was so 1978 and outta here. SIOGO(yeh, we all know what it stands for) was one hell of an arena rock platter with tight hard rock melodic songs fashioned by honest bad ass southern rockers. Interesting though how this album doesn't sound southern at all(save the rave up Drivin Fool). There's a definite british influence on songs like Send Me An Angel, Crossfire, Run For Cover, etc. Me thinks Mr. Medlocke had listened to some Thin Lizzy and UFO. Excellent cover of Nazareth's Heart's Grown Cold with their own stamp on it. The beginning of Sail Away sounds like a long lost Eddie Van Halen riff. Drivin' Fool is redneck headbangin bliss. Every song is anchored by the talented Jakson Spires- one of the best rock drummers ever. Pick it up.

HASH(0x97e45288) out of 5 stars Siogo's History 9 Sept. 2004
By W. West - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Charlie Hargrett (Blackfoot Guitarist from (1969-1984) is, in my humble opinion, a true innovator in Southern Rock sound evolution. He has a web site: [...] that details many of the behind the scenes of the making of the SIOGO album/CD. You might be interested in finding out what the Title stands for. All and all Charlie is a great guy and so is Rickey Medlocke, who my daddy painted houses with in Jacksonville when we were growing up. Now I live over here near Charlie and think about it being a real small world. I played guitar with him once and realized I was outclassed immedately. He plays some local clubs and peals the paint right off the walls, and sends the leseer players packing for the woodsheds, me included. Blackfoot brought an edge to Southern Rock that gave it a voice that made the world take notice to the new guys on the block. Hell they shattered the block and stood on top of the broken pieces and belted out, loud and proud. You can't go wrong with a Blackfoot song. Take it from someone who has met em and growed up around them. They are the real deal.

HASH(0x98de8a80) out of 5 stars Blackfoot at the Top of Their Game 21 May 2002
By Tom - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I just spent 30 minutes writing a review for this great album, only to get kicked off by my server before finishing! Lost thje whole thing and have to start over. Guess I'm too long winded. That's only because I'm very passionate about this group and especially this album. Blackfoot is the essence of no frills rock'n'roll. Great drumming by one of the best bass beat drummers around, Jakson "Thunderfoot" Spires, great guitar players and an excellent bass player. The heart and soul however, is Rick Medlocke. This album has great production and has probably the best sound quality of any Blackfoot release. Every instrument drives the song relentlessly on throughout the whole set and Rick's vocals have never sounded more sincere, pleading, p.o.'d, longing, or more rockin'. This is my favorite Blackfoot release, with "Tomcattin" in a close second, with no weak points in my opinion. Standout tracks include "Send Me An Angel", which almost immediately hits stride with Rick in fine singing form,"Crossfire", which is my all-time favorite Blackfoot rocker...a perfect rock song driven by a great drum beat,"Teenage Idol", another great rock song about a young man's dreams to be a rocker..maybe the subject has been done, but the tune is first rate with great playing and singing, "White Man's Land", a rowdy tune with a great guitar riff that only suffers from being one lead too short...a lead gutar ending would have made this another top Blackfoot tune...still it's great, and "Sail Away", a great tune about the freedom of the open spaces we came to expect on all Blackfoot releases.
One added feature that made this era of Blackfoot extra special was that Ken Hensley, of Uriah Heep fame, was a band member, who's keyboards added additional texture to the sound. It worked well with the traditional Blackfoot rock recipe. I saw them in Harrisburg PA at the time of this release and was really floored by their sound. A true rock band, true to rock'n'roll. Agreat rock album. Get it Soon!

By CDP and his Amazon Habit of purchases! ! - Published on Amazon.com

When you put on the CD, Siogo by Blackfoot, you are agast at that first song, "Send me an Angle" is a pop music masterpiece. But you are a southern rock fan and this is not what you expect, but it is pretty catchy. Neither written or sounding like Jackson or Medlocke. So what are you to do but listen and wait . . . OK, next comes "Crossfire", not bad but still not the southern slang you would be thinking. Not at all, but not bad either. When you've listened to the rest of the albumn, you are at a loss as to what has happened to Blackfoot? Have they been replaced with some others doing this in their name. The entire offering is worthy of the talent of The Blackfoot legacy, just not what you were expecting. Yea Crossfire was OK too, worthy of another listen and after that, "Hearts gone Cold comes thumping and flowing out with twin vocals coming at you and you have to like the song and the beat but it ain't southern rock for sure. Driving beat, surely Jackson and Medlocke and someone else ripping out guitar licks and a driving bass. Give me shelter! Screaming backup vocals also so you can take that and what comes next is even more driving Guitar and drums, Whoa! This is more like it. They get it with "We're Goin' Down" and it ain't what you thought you were getting and you still like it. Coming at you hard, Goin' Down. I don't need a lot of lovin' We're Goin' Down. Then "Teenage Idol" could be anyone else doing this, but Blackfoot? Singin' to his Daddy. What the heck? Good song and more with "Goin" in Circles" and "Run for Cover" following with more good guitar and vocals. If you don't like 80's music, then why are you here. This music is worth listening to over and over. Blackfoot was never recognized for their great delivery of Southern Rock and this is their last Hurrah trying to get the fickle audience of music on FM to pay attention and they are good at it. This is more good Blackfoot Rock and deserves a good listen. These guy do this music and mean it. The song are good, well written and performed here for an audience that does not seem to appreciate them. These guys can play and would be better than many that made it big. I'll listen to this music like those others I won't let go, The Law, Bad Company, Bob Seager, Heart, The Commitments, you just keep listening to them over and over. They don't ever go away. This is one of those. "Whiteman's Land" gives a good song of Native Regret for those willing to listen and these guys may feel like their ancestors, in that it is just that a Whiteman's Land and you can't run from the truth of it. You can only laugh and play your song. "Sail Away" and more good vocal and driving beat and Guitar. The groups of today need to feel what these guys put into their writing and playing of their music. I like this stuff and I don't hear much of it coming out anymore. This music was made for playing loud and up in front of a summer audience wanting to be blown away and they get it with Blackfoot. "Drivin' Fool" is for the pace of this song and the road. Drivin' Home. This is a good end to an album the is good from start to finish. Someone just tell me what the hell is with that Look they are giving on the Cover. I wish one of them would comment on my review and just explain that to me! That ain't no Southern Rock Look! Soigo by Blackfoot.
That's it!

HASH(0x98165bd0) out of 5 stars Slicker, But Still A Masterpiece 30 Nov. 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
SIOGO is slicker than the previous five Blackfoot albums, but it is still a metal masterpiece. After Atco chose not to release HIGHWAY SONG in the U.S. (it came out here last year), the group decided they needed to do something more commercial, so they ditched their Southern sound for pure heavy metal, and the results are great. These guys kept their bluesy hard rock guitars, and they added the keyboards of Ken Hensley, which brought a new dimension to the group's music. They also wrote songs that are often full of recriminations (a carry-over from their earlier records), and they added some party tunes, and the result was their last great album for over a decade. They would hit bottom on the follow-up, VERTICAL SMILES (don't even discuss that one with me), but this one can still cook up a storm on any CD player.
