5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite MSG album featuring Robin McAuley April 3, 2007
Format:Audio CD
THE BAND: Michael Schenker (guitars), Robin McAuley (vocals), Steve Mann (keyboards/guitars), Rocky Newton (bass), Bodo Schopf (drums & percussion).

THE DISC: (1987) 10 tracks clocking in at approximately 43 minutes. Included with the disc is a 6-page booklet containing song titles/credits, song lyrics, one black & white band photo, and thank you's. 7 of the 10 songs written by McAuley & Schenker (the others written by a combination of band members). Recorded at PUK Studios, Denmark. Re-mastered and re-released several times with bonus tracks and/or edits - now an import. Label - Capital Records.

COMMENTS: Michael Schenker has a long list of albums/discs he's made over the decades, but he only made three with singer Robin McAuley. "Perfect Timing", "Save Yourself" (1989) and another titled "MSG" (1991)... of which I truly believe this "Perfect Timing" is the best of the three. "PT" is slick, polished hair/glam rock that leaned more to the commercial side of hard rock. Schenker and his trademark black & white Gibson Flying-V guitar is in top form - as ALL the songs here are solid. Highlights include the two hits "Love Is Not A Game" (perhaps Schenker's best tune with McAuley on vocals) and "Gimme Your Love"; the rockers "Here Today - Gone Tomorrow", "I Don't Wanna Lose", and "No Time For Losers"; and two typical 80's style power ballads in "Follow The Night" and "Time". I wore this vinyl record out back in the late 80's... and I still find myself going back to the "Perfect Timing" disc frequently. I dig the cover too - so 80's with the hair and outfits, it's not even funny. For me, this is/was a special album (5 stars).

5.0 out of 5 stars McSG's best album... April 19, 2007
By Beandog
Format:Audio CD
With the release of Perfect Timing Michael Schenker teamed up with Robin McAuley and put out a very good album with great songs, great playing and strong vocals. In all honesty McAuley was the best vocalist Schenker had worked since Phil Mogg in UFO. Gary Barden simply was too limited with his vocals and Graham Bonnett(while I personally like him) also is fairly limited. McAuley can handle anything from full out rockers too ballads. Schenker's playing is, as usual, great. I love how his playing can be so complex at times but still fit within the structure of the songs and his sense of melody is always strong.

Song Highlights include: Gimme Your Love, Here Today Gone Tomorrow, Love Is Not A Game, I Don't Wanna Lose and Rock Till You're Crazy.

Overall, this is a great, fun album. I don't understand people complaining about this being "hair metal". It's not like UFO or earlier MSG albums/music is thrash or hardcore metal. Schenker's music has always been powerful, but melodic. Perfect Timing provides all of that.

4.0 out of 5 stars Perfect pairing. October 17, 2001
Format:Audio CD
"Perfect Timing"(1987)marks the beginning of the short-lived but powerful collaboration between Schenker and vocalist Robin Mcauley,resulting in three amazing studio albums and one live,unplugged collection.The addition of one extra guitar player created a more dense sound,while the melodic leanings not only opened their music to a more AOR audience,but also added a touch a beauty and craftsmanship which still stands.This is not an 'eighties album'but rather a timeless classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly classic release July 18, 2000
Format:Audio CD
How great this album is was a bit surprising at the time given that the solo Michael Schenker releases after UFO were generally unmemorable and Robin McCauley was essentially unknown before this release. But this is truly an awesome album.... every song is strong, great hooks, song craftmanship, great dynamics.. The followup LPs were not nearly of this caliber and true, they were a "hair' band but for great solid hard rock that you will remember for more than 10 minutes after listening to it, this album is an absolute gem.

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic 80's metal July 9, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This is Schenker's first outing with Robin McAuley who somehow managed to get billed as the "M" is MSG. This album is worth the price just for the photo of the band in the jacket. Ah, the days of the big hair, studded leather and flying V guitars!
This was Michael Schenkers assault on the Pop metal scene with "Gimme your Love" which rivals Dokken and Winger for pop hooks. Robin McAuley was a great choice to try and push them over the top . His raspy David Coverdale immitaion isn't to bad and his songwriting is prime for the period.
It's not surprising that this version of MSG didn't last, however, as Mitch Perry, the other guitar guy, had chops that rivaled Schenker's and therefore, not unlike the redshirted crewman in Star Trek, had to go.
There are some high quality tracks here, like "Love is not a game" and "Rock 'til you're crazy". The bonus tracks are nice for completists, as well.
If your need your 80's metal and are sick of "Living after Midnight" and "Rock you Like a Hurricane", this album will give you your fix.

5.0 out of 5 stars They just don't make 'em like this anymore! February 8, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This group very accomplished and this album is now my
favorite. The instrumentals are fantastic and the vocals
speak for themselves. I would highly recommend this album or
CD to those of you who still are rock and rollers. Must hear
to appreciate.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great hard rock album July 27, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Forget the hair metal photo of the cover art, and you will find in your hands a very respectable hard rock album, full of great hooks and choruses, Michael's usual breathtaking guitar playing, a solid voice by Robin MacAuley. This is the first of their three studio albums together, and by far the best of them.
