3.0 out of 5 stars More of the same, March 2, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Seven Deadly (Audio CD)
The first reviewer is entitled to his opinion. I would just like to point out that he was apparently incapable of telling us why he thought it sucked. Did he buy the last three albums? If he did then why did he buy this one? I am not particularly thrilled with the Vinnie Moore era. He is a phenomenal player, but he is essentially a hired gun/muso. He is technically far better than Michael Schenker but I will take Schenker over him any day because Schenker has attitude to back up his chops. He is dangerous, volatile and exciting, where Moore is perfuntory. UFO has boiled it down to two things: Moore's rather pedestrian riffs and Mogg's 'I've read a few dime novels' lyrics delivered with his trademark growl. This is a decent album just like the other three, but it is cookie cutter hard rock. Moore records the guitars in one place and Mogg sings in another. Except for a rare background keyboard on one or two songs I doubt Paul Raymond even played much on any of these records. UFO were at their best when they mixed some pop with their rock. They dont have the budget to create arrangements for these songs so they compensate by rocking hard. This can get tedious at times but there are acouple of gems including Angel City for one. So the first "reviewer" notwithstanding, If you are a fan and have stayed with the band through the Vinnie Moore era, you know what you are going to get. It doesn't suck but it is more of the same.

Very well said. UFO's last really fine moment was "Walk On Water." (Although "You Are Here" wasn't bad.) I would be amazed if they ever come close to that again. "Seven Deadly" is just dull.

I think if they ever can make a Walk on Water type album ever again, even if it's with Vinnie, they need to get Ron Nevison to produce it, (if he is even still around), because his production was responsible for the albums Lights Out, Obsession,and Walk On Water, to be standout kick ass classics, (even though the ladder of the three never reached the charts, and it is the best out of those three)
