5.0 out of 5 stars Whistle Clean Thundermugs July 7, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Perfect 70's hard rock album. I always thought UFO was one of the most underrated bands of that era. I know Schenker gets most of the glory (deservedly so, he is an evocative/flashy/brilliant guitarist)but to me the real hero of this band has always been Phil Mogg. His singing and songwriting really jells on this cd.

I was lucky enough to catch them with this lineup on tour in the US that year and they were very high energy and blew the headliner off the stage. They get lumped in as a metal band...but I never thought
of them in that genre....there was just too much intelligence and taste coming out of this band on stage and in the studio. And this album was where it all came together.

Most UFO albums have at least one stellar track on it (sometimes many more) but from start to finish you couldn't ask for a better hard rock record. Too hot to handle, this album is it.

Long Live Phil Mogg!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Going out in a blaze of glory October 29, 2004
Format:Audio CD
According to the liner notes, UFO was in its death throes as a band when they recorded "Lights Out" in 1977, and that all the angst the band felt contributed to the unusual power of this CD. I'm not sure I buy that reasoning, but there is no question this band had power, and that this CD was their masterpiece. With German guitar master Michael Schenker at full stride and under the guidance of legendary producer Ron Nevison, this is a must-buy for any fan of '70s British heavy metal. It starts off with "Too Hot to Handle", a minor radio hit and a pure exercise in guitar power and ends with the beautiful "Love to Love" (Misty Green and Blue), another minor radio hit ("minor" hits were all this band could muster up, but that's not necessarily a bad thing) and featuring a string section in addition to the guitars. Other good tracks are the title track, "Getting Ready" and the ballad "Try Me" (yes, every album had to have a ballad in those days). Personal differences and, supposedly, extreme hedonism, tore this band apart after "Lights Out" but Schenker has reappeared with his own band (saw them in concert last year, and they looked good) and the music plays on. If you like Deep Purple, you should like UFO.

5.0 out of 5 stars UFO's Crowning Achievement. August 23, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Lights Out is clearly UFO's crowning achievement. Complete with interwoven strings, each song is a meticulously arranged classic. The CD begins with Michael Schenker's fingers dancing up and down the fret board turning the relatively simple, straight-forward "Too Hot To Handle" into a rock anthem. Next, it's the Phil Moog composition "Just Another Suicide", complete with piano coda courtesy of, then recent addition, Paul Raymond. Then it's on to the ballad "Try Me." Arguably Schenker's finest solo. Rich and textured, moving from silky smooth to grinding distortion.
After "Try Me" lulls you into another state of consciousness, the driving rock of "Lights Out" runs you over like roadkill. "Gettin' Ready" puts you back on your feet and dusts you off. Though not a UFO original and poorly recorded, "Along Again Or" is one of their greatest efforts. Stings and horns are blended into this bittersweet classic, exemplifying the opulence and diversity of the music on this CD. Years later, a Fine Young Cannibals remake of this tune broke my heart; proving that even the greatest song can be butchered in the hands of pop hacks.
Shifting back into overdrive, "Electric Phase" gives Schenker a chance to showcase his talent on the slide, "With a rush and a strummin'". The lavish, epic "Love To Love" is a perfect crescendo (Complete with Chinese Gong) to complete this collage of songs. The arrangement, which switches tempo, blends acoustic and electric melodies with stings and ends with a searing Schenker solo, is a masterpiece. I even think the theme from the first "Halloween" movie owes a tip of the hat to this song.
This CD is a must.

4.0 out of 5 stars LIGHTS OUT IN TOKYO :LIVE December 14, 2006
Format:Audio CD
This is going to be a short but helpfull info. review of this CD:
First let me start by letting you know Schenker is not playing in any of these songs,This is a concert recorded June 20/1992 I don't understand why it has the cover from the original album,I bought this CD some years ago and it has a different cover,now Laurence Archer does a better job playing Love to Love,Lights Out and the rest of the Schenker songs than Paul Chapman did,Archer played these versions pretty close to the versions of Strangers in the night,they sounded great, this is the line up:
Phil Moog(vocals)
Pete Way(Bass)
Laurence Archer(Guitar)(Dokken/Whitesnake)
Clive Edwards(Drums)
Jem Davis(Keyboards)
I should also mention there's another recording out of this concert I guess is something new that came out it's call( DVD-AUDIO ENHANCE)and I like a fool ordered right away without really reading about it,thinking I was getting the full concert on DVD, this is what you'll get the soundtrack and the lyrics on the screen and the ufo story which any UFO/MSG fan pretty much knows by now,so I was dissapointed regarding that deal,well, I hope this info. helps anyone in someway or another!
NOTE:DON'T BE FOOLED BY THIS CD FRONT COVER!
