This review is from: No Place to Run (Audio CD)
No, not the music. It's pretty darn good, though.
It's unbeleivable that:
1. This CD is out of stock(at the time of writing)
(same thing happenned to "Force It", a vinyl
release from 1975, when demand outstripped production)
2. These guys are hardly played on radio'cept for "Lights Out"
3. The media constantly ignores them.
4. One of the best hard rock/metal bands of all-time is
number 84?, or somewhere like that,on VH1's list of
best hard rock bands.
5. Some reviewer on another website, where the "critics" review
the music we listen to, bashed this album completely,
comparing them to Bad Company. PLLLEASE!!! No disrespect
to Paul Rodgers who is one of rock's most treasured voices,
but UFO blows those guys away. (Rodgers is phenomenal with
Queen. Check them out).
So what's going on?!
Is it an evil plot? An oversight? Bad management, perhaps?
Maybe the band themselves don't care if they are famous or not?
Don't really know.
I mean, even if the band themselves don't care, somebody in the
media must know a good thing when they see it. Try to push it
a little bit. Get the word out. WE HAVE UFO CDS. This is great
music that, ITSELF, merits listening, too. Why don't DJ's and
others get it?! Do they need MTV and VH1 to tell them who WE want
to listen to.
If you like 70's hard rock, please pick this up (some of the songs are
so hot they will melt your cd player) and any other seventies
recordings made by these guys. You will not be disappointed.

Why would you take seriously the opinion of ANYBODY on MTV or VH1? Both of those cable networks have made it clear that they feel very strong dislike for hard rock of most kinds. MTV could hardly wait to get rid of Headbanger's Ball and Hard 30, and VH1 likes nostalgia in which so-called celebs you've never heard of make comments about music and related topics that are out of their league. UFO and Uriah Heep are my to all-time fave hard rock bands, and they never get the respect they deserve. You just know they were having a party when 90s alternative and grunge stepped up to the plate.
