Reviewing Michael Schenker is often troublesome,you love the man's guitar playing but you shudder at his choices, of band mates especially vocalists,sub standard performances and sometimes below par 'new ' material.It would seem that Schenker has now realised that for most fans his appeal is in the past,so here we are presented with a stunning selection of tracks from MSG/UFO and the Scorpions,only 2 of the 19 tracks from Tilburg have been written in the past 25 years or so.

So to the concert,from the moment 'Into The Arena' & 'Armed and Ready' burst out of the speakers,you can breathe easy He's on form,those solo's rippling across the stage,yes at times he's self indulgent.who cares,there are many great lead guitarists but only a handful are capable of sheer genuis,for me Schenker is one of those and its a pleasure to indulge him listening to this album.

Its a stellar performance wiping away the irritation of the last live disc,a superior band,a far better sound quality and a better celebration of the man himself,still it would be remiss not to mention the singer 'Doogie White'( a success on Rainbow's Stranger in us All album),he nails the MSG tracks to perfection,in my opinion,but struggles badly with those of the Scorpions,whilst he's adequate at those of UFO (which only highlights how under rated Phil Mogg really is).

In general i can get by the vocalists limitations and enjoy the disc,Schenkers on fire,the band is tight and the 2 tracks from 'Temple of Rock' are excellent especially 'Before The Devil Knows Your Dead',if he can hold this level of performance together and remain consistent in the song writing department,we may just get a solo album to rival the past.

Firstly can i just say that yesterday(sunday)this was on sale for £3.99! Great,so i purchased it straight off,today it has gone up to £10.49...very strange! Anyway,it is good and Michael Schenker is playing better than ever! Yes he is self-indugent? but for god's sake,it's his band and he is the focal point of it! i bet he'd get criticism if he didn't let rip whenever he felt like it.As for too many Scorpions and Ufo songs...fine by me partly because i thought temple of rock wasn't a great album.
At the end of the day it's michael i want to hear and he is brilliant,and Doogie white is a lot better than Gary Barden...in my opinion.

I have followed Schenker for years now, and own every CD and DVD release he has put out. This live album, from only May of this year, contains the full show. The fault with so many reviews of Schenker's live albums is that they are always compared to his first, most successful live solo release, 'One Night At Budokan'. This release is indeed very good, but it is short-sighted to ignore the wealth of material Schenker has released (and continues to) since then. 'Temple of Rock - Live in Europe' is very well mixed, with Schenker's guitar up nicely, and we hear everyone else plenty well enough. It does very much feel like a 'live' show, and is not one of those annoying live releases mixed as though to sound like a studio recording. We hear the crowd, but not too much. The set itself covers much of Schenker's career, but personally I think there is too much UFO and Scorpions material in there (11 songs, in fact) which is a shame when Schenker has so much brilliant material he can draw from. The new album is only represented by two songs here: 'Hangin' On and Before the Devil Knows You're Dead', which again, I think is a shame as it's a solid release. That said, it is a great live show and the band are clearly loving it, which make for more enjoyable listening. It is better than MSG's previous live release (the 30th Anniversary show in Tokyo), which features (a now retired- or almost) Gary Barden, whose voice was never great and is now far worse, as well as his demonstration of this by letting the crowd sing as much a they can, instead of him. Doogie White, by contrast, is a great and enthusiastic vocalist who delivers the songs with the commitment and effort you would expect.Read more ›

And so it came to pass that the faithful attended the Temple Of Rock, and lo there faith was rewarded. I must admit, it is nice to see Michael Schenker attempting to redeem himself after so many attempts to shoot himself in the foot over the years. From his days as a teenage prodigy with Scorpions through numerous tempestuous collaborations with UFO, and his own up and waaaaay down solo career, the talent he had was almost lost in a blizzard of Mad Mickey tales.

However, he is trying to live up to his legacy and, in his own words, "The Temple Of Rock is almost finished. There's not much new left to expect, but I am glad to be a part of this temple," says Michael. "It's unbelievable fun and an honor to share a stage and make music with some of the world's best musicians." Which brings us to the main part of this release, which is a concert recorded in Tilburg, in the Netherlands from May 2012 that sees him teaming up with Doogie White (ex Rainbow, Yngwie Malmsteen, Everyone Else) on vocals, former Scorpions colleagues Herman Rarebell on drums and Francis Buchholz on bass and the multi-talented Wayne Findley on rhythm guitar, keyboards and harmony vocals.

It's very much a greatest hits set, taking in reams of material from his early days with UFO, Scorpions and his solo days. There are a couple of surprises, with some tunes from Scorpions, post Michael, but with Herman Ze German and Francis Bucholz in place, it makes some sense. And he even tackles 'Assault Attack', one of my favourite of his solo songs, but not one I expected to hear. There's also the obligatory two new tunes from the latest solo album, one with Michael Voss on guest lead vocals.
