Such a shame because with a decent set of pipes singing the lyrics (even though some are cringeworthy) the album could so easily have merited all 5 stars! If you don't believe me, have a listen to Phil Mogg's ageing voice fronting the latest UFO album; Seven Deadly.....it really, really does make all the difference in the world....so Michael, please, get a decent singer and present us long standing fans with an album to cherish and not feel ridiculed if some metal merchant hears our loud stereo playing Remember.......!
Content wise, nothing stands out to me. Lyrically it seems rather inane and this is the damning one, musically formulaic. Having seen the renewed, revitalised Michael. The player supreme, Mr.V at his finest, I was expecting more.
Very radio friendly but fails to engage.
In short, as anybody who has seen "Michael Schenker in the Studio for the recording of Unforgiven" already knows, Schenker likes to have a laugh. Against popular opinion, he is actually quite a happy soul. Schenker emerging from a pyramid on the cover of the album is not an egotistic statement about some kind of Nephilimic rock-god materialising from a star-gate. It's intended to be funny - a parody. For sure, Shatner's anti-war message commercially taps into a popular sentiment in the US. We're not blind. And yet, a major theme here is "fun". Schenker never did succumb to the "ominousness" stereotype of most heavy rock. His music is best summed up by his own phrase, "Back to Attack". It is upbeat, joyful, energizing, and infectious - and this album is no exception to that rule.
Anyway - what about the music? Well, after the Intro, we have "How Long". Typical for Schenker albums, this track is very up-tempo. Engine-room riffing beneath a very radio-friendly verse and chorus formula. Solid, original guitar-work for the solo.Read more ›
Played this a few times before coming to the conclusion that I was expecting. In the "OK to good and yet still disappointing me" category. Am I expecting too much again and again I ask myself? This guy produced the best rock in the seventies and early eighties and I loved him for it so where is the mark of class? Perhaps over critical but add to this the awful title, dreadful cover/artwork and lyrics.... disappointed to be honest.
In terms of quality and for comparison then this is a three to four star effort in the same vein as "Be Aware of Scorpions". As usual the guitar work is excellent (despite the over reliance on distortion and hammer on/pull offs live), not the speed and clarity of old but still amazing melody in those perfectly fitting imaginative big sounding solos. My stand out tunes are "How Long" and "Before the Devil Knows You're Dead" (how great a Ronnie Dio vocal could of made this! RIP), a bit dated maybe but showing the simpler stuff seems to be working well. My taste may be mellowing with age but funny how I hated the corny "Saturday Night" but really liked "Lovers Sinfony". No need for the pathetic play on the word but I like a nicely constructed rock song now with McAuley being the difference on the vocal.Read more ›
