Format: Audio CD
Lights Out is clearly UFO's crowning achievement. Complete with interwoven strings, each song is a meticulously arranged classic. The CD begins with Michael Schenker's fingers dancing up and down the fret board turning the relatively simple, straight-forward "Too Hot To Handle" into a rock anthem. Next, it's the Phil Moog composition "Just Another Suicide", complete with piano coda courtesy of, then recent addition, Paul Raymond. Then it's on to the ballad "Try Me." Arguably Schenker's finest solo. Rich and textured, moving from silky smooth to grinding distortion.
After "Try Me" lulls you into another state of consciousness, the driving rock of "Lights Out" runs you over like roadkill. "Gettin' Ready" puts you back on your feet and dusts you off. Though not a UFO original and poorly recorded, "Along Again Or" is one of their greatest efforts. Stings and horns are blended into this bittersweet classic, exemplifying the opulence and diversity of the music on this CD. Years later, a Fine Young Cannibals remake of this tune broke my heart; proving that even the greatest song can be butchered in the hands of pop hacks.
Shifting back into overdrive, "Electric Phase" gives Schenker a chance to showcase his talent on the slide, "With a rush and a strummin'". The lavish, epic "Love To Love" is a perfect crescendo (Complete with Chinese Gong) to complete this collage of songs. The arrangement, which switches tempo, blends acoustic and electric melodies with stings and ends with a searing Schenker solo, is a masterpiece. I even think the theme from the first "Halloween" movie owes a tip of the hat to this song.
This CD is a must.

Perfect 70's hard rock album. I always thought UFO was one of the most underrated bands of that era. I know Schenker gets most of the glory (deservedly so, he is an evocative/flashy/brilliant guitarist)but to me the real hero of this band has always been Phil Mogg. His singing and songwriting really jells on this cd.

I was lucky enough to catch them with this lineup on tour in the US that year and they were very high energy and blew the headliner off the stage. They get lumped in as a metal band...but I never thought
of them in that genre....there was just too much intelligence and taste coming out of this band on stage and in the studio. And this album was where it all came together.

Most UFO albums have at least one stellar track on it (sometimes many more) but from start to finish you couldn't ask for a better hard rock record. Too hot to handle, this album is it.

Long Live Phil Mogg!!

This is all record is UFO at their peak. UFO was a band that sadly got swept aside in the '80's, when peers like Scorpions and Judas Priest were getting their kudos for influencing the the NWOBHM. Look around though, and you can hear UFO in both Maiden and Leppard. Meanwhile, Phil Mogg had only one rival as a lyricist working in the hard work milieu - Phil Lynott of Thin Lizzy, (whose shortfall on the ladder of success is a injustice even greater than that of UFO.) Mogg had a much more mature approach to his writing - examine his take of the burgeoning punk scene and its excesses in the East End of London on "Lights Out", or the mental approach of "Gettin' Ready". These were no dragons and kings flights of fancy, a la Ronnie James Dio. There was gritty realistic look at everyday life in Mogg's lyrics. Meanwhile, Michael Schenker was simply the best guiatrist on the hard rock scene pre-VH. Lights Out is a great starter album for anyone looking to dip their toes in the UFO pool.

According to the liner notes, UFO was in its death throes as a band when they recorded "Lights Out" in 1977, and that all the angst the band felt contributed to the unusual power of this CD. I'm not sure I buy that reasoning, but there is no question this band had power, and that this CD was their masterpiece. With German guitar master Michael Schenker at full stride and under the guidance of legendary producer Ron Nevison, this is a must-buy for any fan of '70s British heavy metal. It starts off with "Too Hot to Handle", a minor radio hit and a pure exercise in guitar power and ends with the beautiful "Love to Love" (Misty Green and Blue), another minor radio hit ("minor" hits were all this band could muster up, but that's not necessarily a bad thing) and featuring a string section in addition to the guitars. Other good tracks are the title track, "Getting Ready" and the ballad "Try Me" (yes, every album had to have a ballad in those days). Personal differences and, supposedly, extreme hedonism, tore this band apart after "Lights Out" but Schenker has reappeared with his own band (saw them in concert last year, and they looked good) and the music plays on. If you like Deep Purple, you should like UFO.

I purchased this because it has been remasterd as well as 4 added 'live' tracks. This CD is worth the price just for the live version of the song 'Lights Out'!! It is the exact same performance of the video clip that`s on the UFO DVD 'Too Hot to Handle'--that live video clip gives you an visual and audio appreciation of how good UFO and Michael Schenker were live back in the late 70`s and it is a GREAT performance!! And the exact same audio clip that`s included on this CD is audibly even better--the overpowered Marshall amp that Michael Schenker is using will 'explode' thru your speakers and you will hear the subtle use of his 'wah wah' pedal during his first solo [which he absloutely 'rips'!!] as well as the following 'chorus' etc!! And most likely, once you hear it, you will use the 'repeat' function on your CD player!

So if you are a fan of UFO and a fan of Micheal Schenker then buy this CD as there are some great 'studio songs' on it that demonstrate the creativity and different styles of this talented band along with the addition of the 4 'live' tracks that gives you some great 'live' UFO!! And as I already wrote, the 'live' version of 'Lights Out' is 'blistering' esp. the 2 guitar solos by Schenker!

BTW 'You Tube' has the video clip of this live 'Lights Out' performance so check it out if you haven`t yet seen it as I feel it is Michael Schenker and UFO at their very best! Also it is part of the UFO DVD 'Too Hot to Handle' which is also a 'must own' to any UFO fan!
