Editorial Reviews

Walk on Water finds the classic mid-'70s UFO lineup -- featuring Michael Schenker -- reuniting for another go-round. Much has changed in rock & roll since Schenker last played in UFO, but in UFO's world, things remain the same. The group continues to pound out heavy rockers without changing its formula much at all. To the disinterested observer or critic, this means Walk on Water is boring, but UFO diehards may be pleasantly surprised by the record, since it finds the band playing with energy and conviction, even if the music is predictable. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, All Music Guide

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favorite CDs! January 3, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Walk on Water is, as other reviewers have noted, the "dream team" of Phil Mogg, Andy Parker, Michael Schenker, Pete Way and Paul Raymond -- the classic UFO line-up from the '70s that produced all the catchy FM radio staples.
On this, a reunion album after many, many years apart, the UFO boys rock like never before, adding an updated, gritty yet crisp sound to their guitars. From the opening riff of "A Self Made Man" right through to the updated covers of their classic tunes "Doctor, Doctor" and "Lights Out," Walk on Water is a joy to behold. And, believe me, I behold it often while I'm working.
Phil Mogg's vocals are still unique and very good. He still has the range and style he did two decades ago. That, in itself, is amazing.
Schenker's playing is every bit as "guitar-god" as it used to be. Perhaps more flamboyant than on the classic old UFO albums (but, of course, his ego has swelled to dirigible proportions since then), yet it's still UFO-like and fits well with Mogg's vocal style.
Although there isn't a song on this album I don't like, and some I like very, very much, there is one song that really pushes all my buttons: "Venus," track two. There's something about that bouncy, catchy song that makes it one of my favorite tracks EVER by any band. I can push "Repeat" and listen to that one track all day long at the office.
Although most of the classic UFO line-up would return for Covenant (minus Andy Parker and Paul Raymond), released in 2000, this album is by far the more enjoyable of their two latest. Perhaps it's because on Walk on Water is the classic UFO line-up. That's a large part of it, for sure. But the songs are simply better on Water. And the guitar sound is more prominent and punchy.

5.0 out of 5 stars UFO At Their Best! April 26, 2000
Format:Audio CD
After years of fragmentation UFO finally got Michael Schenker to return to the group in 1994. The result was WALK ON WATER, one of the finest UFO albums ever recorded. The album picks right up where the classic LIGHTS OUT line-up left off in 1979. "Self Made Man" and "Darker Days" both feature crunchy heavy riffs and "dark" melodies, and are classic UFO songs. "Pushed To The Limit" is a top-notch uptempo rocker with a driving beat. The rest of the album is spectacular Hard Rock with a lot of melody. Often laced with acoustic guitar for texture, songs like "Stopped By A Bullet," "Venus," "Knock, Knock," and "Running On Empty" show a more mature version of UFO that still rocks. In fact, that is what makes this album so special; the band treats the listener with respect and doesn't just put out a "paint by numbers" Hard Rock album. WALK ON WATER is a must for any UFO fan, and should be in the collection of any fan of 1970's & 1980's Hard Rock. \ (If you like this album I also HIGHLY recommend Deep Purple's PURPENDICULAR!)

5.0 out of 5 stars THE DREAM TEAM December 19, 1998
Format:Audio CD
The album opens with a destructive guitar chord in a song with a melodic bridge and chorus, and a creative guitar solo, so we have no doubt that this is UFO in their best shape. Paul Raymond sounds like Jon Lord in the semi-acoustical "Venus". The good 4th track is a country rock in Garth Brooks style. "Darker Days"chorus reminds the best songs of the band in the 70s. Michael Schenker plays electric guitar solo during almost the whole "Running on Empty", but surprises us with an acoustic guitar solo in the middle. "Dreaming of Summer" is as wonderful as the melodic UFO masterpieces like "Love to Love". The new version of the two greatest hits are a gift to the fans - they`re slightly and smartly different, so fans will not be shocked with too many changes but will have refreshed versions of the songs they love. Only UFO can alternate from heavy to acoustic in the same song so beautifully. We hope this dream team will last for many more CDs like this.

5.0 out of 5 stars KNOCK, KNOCK March 14, 2002
Format:Audio CD
It's unbelieveable, but after almost 20 years apart, UFO's best line-up is together again and putting out material that seems as though no time at all has passed since OBSESSION came out. This line-up also was responsible for LIGHTS OUT. With WALK ON WATER these five musicians can add another solid performance to their resume. The band, for those of you less familiar with these rock giants from the '70's are Phil Mogg[vocals], Michael Schenker[guitars], Pete Way[bass], Andy Parker[drums], and Paul Raymond[guitars/keyboards].
This is one of those finds that helps brighten my day. Not even knowing these guys were back together I ran across this release and pretty much had to have it. The songs and musicianship are superb! I don't know if they had saved up material, or, magic just happened when they started this project. I don't want to label this as a more mature UFO, but the songs seem to reflect a lifestyle and matters that would be on the mind of someone in their 30's and 40's. That shouldn't scare you younger listeners away, though! The talent these five display is as good as any of their younger rivals, except even more refined.
I have to admit, I wondered why they would remake two of their classics["Doctor, Doctor" & "Lights Out"], but the versions here are exceptional. It's like looking at an old friend in a new way. As far as the new material goes, there are no songs to make you yawn when you listen. In fact, the material is as good as any I have ever heard the band perform! My favorites from the new stuff are "A Self Made Man", "Pushed to the Limit", "Running on Empty", and my favorites "Darker Days" and "Knock, Knock".

Refreshed original UFO sound
I'm a bit confused. Is this Eagle Records release a remastered version of the 1995 original recording? Or is it just the same CD with the extra tracks. Amazon's description makes no mention of a re-mastering job, and yet I swear this Eagle Records version sounds clearer, cleaner, crisper, and... Read More
