5.0 out of 5 stars Rerelease of great album with nice bonus tracks. November 10, 2004
Format:Audio CD
In 1985, Gary went back to Ireland and played(for the first time since his teenage years) in Belfast. On Wild Frontier, his first studio album after that trip, Gary revisits his homeland in songs. This album was clearly born from his trip back home as many of the songs are about Ireland and even the music itself is steeped in his celtic roots.

The title track was originally intended to be sung by Phil Lynott(who also sang on two tracks on Gary's previous album, Run For Cover) but his untimely passing prevented that. The album itself is dedicated to Phil's memory and I think he would have loved the musical stories that are contained here.

The songs Over The Hills And Far Away and Thunder Rising are as much short stories as they are songs. They are stories of Ireland present(Over The Hills) and past(Thunder). The title track is a beautiful song obviously born from his love of his homeland. The Loner is an outstanding instrumental that really showcases Gary's style of play.

Added to this rerelease are the 12'' version of Friday On My Mind,an extended version of the Loner that was originally available on a limited Edition double lp version of Wild Frontier,as well as a live version of Out In The fields. Both versions of the cd feature the 12" versions of Wild Frontier and Over The Hills And Far Away.

The guitar playing this album is incredible. It is passionate and, at times, understated. It is also worth noting that Gary has rarely sounded as at home on the vocals as he does here. I think this albums shows his maturity as a singer as well as a guitarist.

Wild Frontier is an essential Gary Moore album that should be in the collection of any fan of his. This rerelease, with the bonus tracks, is superior to the original and must be recomended over the previous version.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 Star Guitar Playing January 22, 2000
By Mike S
Format:Audio CD
Wow! I love this album, it really rocks with great feeling and melody. Gary's guitar rythyms and solos prove he is one the best guitarist around. I love The Loner which is an emotional instrumental with smoking solos. Thunder Rising is a rock masterpiece. There isn't a bad song on this CD. The cover version of Friday On My Mind is great. What an album!

5.0 out of 5 stars Stellar guitar work and songwriting January 27, 2007
By Galley
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
So, I finally picked up a copy of this classic album. I literally haven't heard it since I owned the cassette version more than 15 years ago. This album is every bit as good as I remember, if not better. The guitar work is simply stellar and the songwriting is top-notch as there is not a bad song on this disc. "Wild Frontier" is a rarity in that the 12" versions are often better than the original album tracks.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wild Frontier on more then one front September 14, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The first time I heard this album I was a little disappointed as I was expecting something along the lines of "Run for cover". However over the years this album has grown on me and I think it is actually one of Mr. Moore's best. There are so many influences present but none more so then his irish heritage which is blended with his stylish guitar playing and music writing from the powerful "Over the hills" to the beautiful but sad "Johnny Boy".
He is a gifted musician and songwriter and this album illustrates why.

5.0 out of 5 stars Moore's last great album July 9, 2005
By Spatzi
Format:Audio CD
It's really been sad to see the downhill ride Moore's been on since this classic came out in 1987. Never cute enough to make it in the vacuous 80's 'hair metal' scene (Ozzy once aptly said '...he has a face like a welder's bench') where image was more important than 'music, (See 'Whitesnake' and it's barbie dolls for prime example of what was 'cool' at the time), Moore would trade in the monster riffs and killer solos for the 'blues' in 1990, citing '....no more interest in trying to write hit singles.' as his main reason. Okay, Gary, we'll let you do your 'blues album' to cleanse yourself, but unfortunately, this incredibly boring 'blues phase' has continued for 15 years already, and each album is more watered down than the last. Gary has never been a 'blues' player. His forte is balls to the walls riffs and ripping metal solos. That's his talent. Leave the blues to the real players like Robben Ford. Even Gary's 'fusion' phase with Colosseum 2 was more believable than trying to be a 'blues player'.

'Wild frontier' has everything of the real Moore essence: crunching riffs, precise solos, great tone, and songwriting that doesn't make you wince, unlike some of his early work from 1983's 'Victims of the future'. Ex: who can forget the classic lyric from 'Murder in the skies': '...The Russians have shot down a plane on its way to Korea...' That was Gary trying laughably to be 'current', and make a 'statement'.

'Wild frontier' is the pinnacle of his 80's solo career. He was true to his roots, delivered some decent vocals, and the ghost of Thin Lizzy and Ireland is all over this album.

A great album from start to finish, and IMO Gary's last great hard rock album (After The War is good, but one could sense that his heart wasn't into this genre anymore). Read more
