Opening with 'Too Hot To Handle & Just Another Suicide' the lads show they've got this down pat stunning rocker followed by the commercial hook,how many band s would kill to be able to open their albums like this,the aforementioned tracks contain every UFO trade mark and for the last 30 years this album has been milked by many a band to develop their own career,Def Lepard anyone?,side one of the original vinyl closed with the stunning 'Try Me' with typical jaw dropping guitar solo from Michael Schenker and the anthemic 'Lights Out',(an interesting aside, in the booklet the ridiculous original review by Geoff Barton,3 stars and denigrating Try Me!!!!)
Side 2 opened with 'Gettin Ready' which should have ripped up the charts,im sure had Aerosmith/Van Halen/Kiss or Ted Nugent recorded it' america would have fallen to its knees,still,'Alone Again' is a faithful cover version then its back to the rock god arena with the excellent 'Electric Phase' and sublime 'Love To Love',really this is music to die for,had Zeppelin recorded the last two tracks we would have feted them for ever.
Bonus tracks : 4 decent live recordings including Love To Love and Try Me with Schenker manfully trying to reproduce the album solos in the live arena,on reflection this disc is so good that the live tracks aren't needed but a nice touch none the less,this is a must have disc.
The fabulous UFO chemistry was at its best when they recorded this one. No need for commercial airwave success to recognize how awesome this band sounded. Arguably, this is one of the top 3 hard rock albums stemming out from real rock's most prolific era.
The cherry on the cake: The remastered sound of this edition is excellent (Note: other low quality remastered versions such as the double CDs issued by BMG are to be avoided).
This is an absolute MUST HAVE.
A short album...they had to be if they were going to be loud (ask your parents to explain "grooves")
Quite possibly the best voice in rock....and still getting better!
