It also remains one of their most successful releases to date. Bonus tracks include two demos produced by Dave Edmunds ('Sixteen' and 'Oh My'), two German-only single sides ('Giver Her The Gun' and 'Sweet Little Thing') one unreleased studio track ('Sixteen') and a BBC1 Live recording of 'Doctor Doctor'. EMI.

5.0 out of 5 stars Phenomenon is Phenomenal February 15, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It's too bad it took them this long to re release these classics with unreleased tracks, but better late than never. Finally the hard to find single of "Give her the Gun", and "sweet little thing" (the first single featuring Michael Schenker, and first release on Chrysalis) along with the song "Sixteen" ( a remake of their 1972 single "Galactic Love"). also including in this set are the demos of Oh My and Sixteen (featuring Bernie Mardsden on guitar) and a BBC recording of Doctor, Doctor (previously released on UFO BBC live , released in 2000, and now out of print. If you can a copy at a reasonable price do get it.) I was also impressed with rare photos which included a band shoot with Bernie , and some photos sessions as a five piece , with both Michael and his later replacment in the years to come Paul Chapman. This release (as well as the reissue of "Force It" and "No Heavy Petting") is a must buy For hardcore UFO fans, and for newcomers looking for something new to discover.

4.0 out of 5 stars UFO hit the Big Time. November 12, 2003
By Mons
Format:Audio CD
"Seventeen and nature's queen/You know what I mean?". It's not hard to see where Spinal Tap got some of their inspiration from. Especially since this song is actually called Rock Bottom. Although in my opinion, UFO were better than the genre so cruelly parodied by Tap. UFO had a lot of things going for them- a cool name, great-looking album sleeves, one of the finest heavy rock guitarists ever, plenty of street cred and an unbroken suite of 5 classic albums in the 70s. Phenomenon is the first. Doctor Doctor was - and remains - a resounding heavy metal hit, guaranteed to get heads banging and air guitars playing at any party. Other powerhouse numbers include live favourite Oh My, while Crystal Light and Space Child and Too Young To Know showed that UFO were a deft hand at slower numbers and ballads. This, remember, was the band's first record with wunderkind Michael Schenker, fresh out of the Scorpions and heading for the stars. Whichever way you look at it, Phenomenon was a gigantic leap forward for the group in every respect. UFO went from being a tired space-rock combo into a lean, mean metal machine virtually overnight. Spearheaded by Schenker's fiery guitar and Phil Mogg's nimble hard rock phrasing and assured songwriting, UFO were on a roll. The runaway best cut is Rock Bottom which, as well as boasting one of the best rock choruses this side of Tuesday, comes complete with a one of the defining rock guitar solos in rock.
After this album, UFO's career rocketed skyward, culminating in the pair of masterpieces of Lights Out and Obsessions. After that, of course, it was all downhill; the 80s happened and the sound of motions being gone through echoed loudly through the kingdom. But in 1974, they were hot to trot. You can hear it here. UFO beginners should try Lights Out and then this one. You know it makes sense.

5.0 out of 5 stars Phenomenon...indeed September 18, 2003
Format:Audio CD
1977. Rainbow Music Hall in Denver.
Maybe 2500 people at the show. I was in the Air Force stationed at Lowery and I dragged a friend of mine to the show.
I had read about the album in Rolling Stone (back when it was actually relevant kids) and they raved about it, so I bought that vinyl.
The band came out at about 9:30pm and played for two hours.
Then came FOUR encores ending with the classic "Rock Bottom"
I can still close my eyes and hear the thundering ending of that song.
My friend talked about it for a week.
They tore it up.
It was the loudest concert I've ever been to, and I've seen them all.
A thousand concerts, and I have yet to see it's equal.
What a great name for a band.

5.0 out of 5 stars Phenomenon - phenomenal!! September 13, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This album is an absolutely brilliant example of how good high quality rock should be played. UFO were masters, sheer geniuses at producing quality heavy rock which managed to combine power with melody. The combination of Moggs vocals and Schenker axemanship against the manic backdrop of Way and Parker has seldom been surpassed. This album does not have a bad track on it, from the classic dotted rhythm of Doctor Doctor to the subtleties of Crystal Light and Space Child, the compass of this band is incredible. And as for Rock Bottom! Well, the danger with a track like that early in a career is that it is hard to beat later! But when this version of UFO peaked on Strangers in the Night / Lights Out phase, they did just that. This is my favourite album of all time - it has everything. And executed brilliantly.
If you want to produce melodic rock that still has a finely honed cutting edge, this album should be your first port of call

5.0 out of 5 stars The Phenomenon begins! May 20, 2005
By Morton
Format:Audio CD
The Phenomenon known as UFO begins here. Though UFO released albums before this, it wasnt until the joining of Michael Schenker, the departure of Mick Bolton and the release of Phenonmenon that UFO found their legendary hard rock sound and style. When Michael Schenker joined the band he was only to be a guest for a few gigs, because he was a member of The Scorpions at the time, well that ended, he left The Scorpions and joined UFO full time. With a large hole in The Scorpions they called on Uli Jon Roth to replace. When Phenomenon was released it was the bands strongest album so far.

The album opens up with the hard rocker 'Oh, My' with killer vocals and an out of this world guitar riff and solo that showed that UFO had finaly chosen the right guitar player for the job. Next is the Rocker/balladier 'Crystal Light' filled with beautiful lyrics and arpegiated guitar that must be heard to hear how well it flows. Truly one of the bands best slower songs. UFO's biggest hit 'Doctor, Doctor' is next with a blisterng solo and fiery leads by Schenker and a catchy chorus to boot it's no wonder this was the bands biggest hit single. 'Space Child' is another ballad/rock song with a really cool melody and beautiful lyrics. Phil Moggs vocals are just flat out amazing on Space Child, maybe this song is why they got called space rock, what is that anyway? My favorite song on the album 'Rock Bottom' is next. It has one of my favorite Michael Schenker guitar solos and a really cool and catchy chorus. This is what hard rock should be, hard, heavy and fun! 'To Young To Know' has some good guitar and is very bluesy, probley the most bluesy song the band has ever recorded. it's one of the better songs the band has ever done as well.

I love 70's guitar rock and this album is one of my favorites. Blazing guitars, softer songs, a great mix of 70's rock. UFO is a great band, and this is their greatest album!
