Benno, WOW kicketh butt indeed - great record. If you like that one you need to check out some of their classic late 70's/early 80's stuff in case you haven't already. Actually, the recently released extended version of their brilliant live disc 'Strangers In The Night' is a great place to start. The post-Schenker Paul Chapman era is very underrated IMO - check out 'Mechanix', 'No Place To Run' or 'The Wild, The Willing, The Innocent' if you get a chance.

Also, as a fan of 'Walk On Water' you MUST get yourself a copy of the second Mogg/Way album, 'Chocolate Box' (Andrew still might have some samples on his site). It was meant to be a UFO record with a new guy named Jeff Kollman on guitar who is pretty phenomenal both as a guitarist and songwriter. Unfortunately, dickwad Schenker saw to it that it couldn't be released under the UFO banner and it didn't get the exposure/respect it deserved. CBox blows 'Covenant' clean out of the water (save for 'Midnight Train', which is an amazing tune). Hopefully it was UFO's swan song with Schenker - I'm so sick of that man's antics and disrespect toward his fans.

P.S.: 'Miss The Lights'?! Sure it's not 'Lights Out'...? ;-0
