I decided to take a punt at this album as I'm struggling to find any new bands, and while I'm struggling to look forward I've decided to go back in time and check out Gary Moore via my Thin Lizzy fandom. Although you can definitely tell this album was made in the 80's, it has aged really well and was much needed shot in the arm for my waning faith in rock music in general (new stuff sucks!). Moor effortlessly mixes hard rock / metal riffs, with Celtic instrumentation and classy blues and of course signature Thin Lizzy-esque guitar melodies. 'Over The Hills and Far Away' is as good an album opener as you're ever likely to hear as is the title track and who the hell cannot relate to the 'living for the weekend' sentiment of 'Friday On My Mind,' ?
Fantastic Gary Moore album.

This is another milestone in Moore's rock solid history. Throughout his career he has chopped and changed genres frequently making him such an exiting guitarist.

This is one such episode where the obvious celtic feel is prominent reflecting his mood from revisiting his native ireland and the untimely death of the great Phil Lynott.

The Wild Frontier Track was originally written for Phil Lynott to share vocals which sadly never came about, Over the Hills is a very clever well put together song and probably the only that that stood upto and warranted the over-production. Wait a little time has 'Billy Idol' stamped all over it (Moore made no secret of admiring him at the time). The loner is an instrumental which liked by Many but too tame for Moore. Friday on My Mind is Pants and should not have been on the album. Strangers in the darkness a slow ballad with a dark undertone. Thunder Rising is Moores rendition of Lizzys massacre and johny Boy is a moving tribute to the great Phil Lynott.Crying in the shadows is a great ballad which originally missed of the vinyl reflects Moores ability to cover all the styles.

The rear of the Album said simply ' For Philip' and was a sound tribute in both style and content.

The Album sound reflects the over-production and myriad of instruments and drum machines which Moore does not need.

This is probably the least played Album in my GM collection prefering either the harder rock stuff from previous 3 albums or the later blues ~(and later powered blues).

A great album full of great songs but has not aged well owing to the over-production which so many artists suffered from at this time.

A quote from Don Airey about Moore hits the nail on the head ' He is such a talented artist bursting with ideas with so much drive and ability that it cannot be contained.

this in my opinion is a classic by gary moore with irish rock being a focall piont throughout the album. my particular favourite as it was the album that got me into gary moore and love listening to it still. "thunder rising" is a great rock song both vocally and guitar/songwriter wise as is "take a little time" a brill song! i like his take on the easybeats song"friday on my mind" its a great version of a great song. definatly an album worth remastering, just a shame too repeat certain tracks again and not have more quality songs in place, my only critism

Believe it or not this album contains five singles, 4 of which made the UK top 40. From the excellent cover version of "Friday on my Mind" to "Over the Hills" (which gives Big Country, Runrig and all those other Celtic Rock outfits a run for their money), to "Thunder Rising" to "Johnny Boy" this album is how Celtic Rock should be played. If you don't have this album already but it today.

The best album he wrote in my opinion. Had a copy many years ago that got lost in numerous moves so thought it was about time to revisit the "Wild Frontier". Not disappointed.

This is Gary Moore at his very best. Moore's guitar skills have never been in doubt, but not all his tracks contain more than fancy guitarwork. This album has the songs to match Moore's guitar skills and the result is brilliance!
