After this album, UFO's career rocketed skyward, culminating in the pair of masterpieces of Lights Out and Obsessions. After that, of course, it was all downhill; the 80s happened and the sound of motions being gone through echoed loudly through the kingdom. But in 1974, they were hot to trot. You can hear it here. UFO beginners should try Lights Out and then this one. You know it makes sense.
Maybe 2500 people at the show. I was in the Air Force stationed at Lowery and I dragged a friend of mine to the show.
I had read about the album in Rolling Stone (back when it was actually relevant kids) and they raved about it, so I bought that vinyl.
The band came out at about 9:30pm and played for two hours.
Then came FOUR encores ending with the classic "Rock Bottom"
I can still close my eyes and hear the thundering ending of that song.
My friend talked about it for a week.
They tore it up.
It was the loudest concert I've ever been to, and I've seen them all.
A thousand concerts, and I have yet to see it's equal.
What a great name for a band.
If you want to produce melodic rock that still has a finely honed cutting edge, this album should be your first port of call
The album opens up with the hard rocker 'Oh, My' with killer vocals and an out of this world guitar riff and solo that showed that UFO had finaly chosen the right guitar player for the job. Next is the Rocker/balladier 'Crystal Light' filled with beautiful lyrics and arpegiated guitar that must be heard to hear how well it flows. Truly one of the bands best slower songs. UFO's biggest hit 'Doctor, Doctor' is next with a blisterng solo and fiery leads by Schenker and a catchy chorus to boot it's no wonder this was the bands biggest hit single. 'Space Child' is another ballad/rock song with a really cool melody and beautiful lyrics. Phil Moggs vocals are just flat out amazing on Space Child, maybe this song is why they got called space rock, what is that anyway? My favorite song on the album 'Rock Bottom' is next. It has one of my favorite Michael Schenker guitar solos and a really cool and catchy chorus. This is what hard rock should be, hard, heavy and fun! 'To Young To Know' has some good guitar and is very bluesy, probley the most bluesy song the band has ever recorded. it's one of the better songs the band has ever done as well.Read more ›
